Negin Kianfar (Iran) on Facts and Formats
“The intensive International Course Facts and Formats not only gave a boost in my productivity and encouraged me to think of ideas and formats out of my comfort zone, but it also changed my approach towards the subjects in a revolutionary way. Learning the theory of persuasion made me think of my work from a different perspective and enabled me to find answers for complex WHY questions while developing new ideas. The experience of working intensively with an international group and exchanging concept and design with people from different backgrounds was an excellent and unique occurrence.”
