Soapbox + Berghs + Grafik

Design like you give a damn

Happy to announce the impending collaboration between us, Berghs School of Communication and Grafik Magazine later in March.

Taking some inspiration from James Victore’s ‘Design like you give a damn’ mentality and Soapbox & Sons’ urge to do new and innovative collaboration, 25 students from Berghs will be receiving a very topical and cultural brief with the aim to ‘give a damn’ through design.

The course we are working with is Graphic Design, and the module Communication Design. Jenny Theolin will be lecturing and guiding these students through a real-life Soapbox & Sons exhibition project, with the aim to disrupt and challenge traditional conventions through ‘graphic design journalism’.

Together with Sophia Wood, they will be pushing the students to their limits – and with Grafik as a partner in damn-giving, you never know, we will hopefully make an impact!

We’re hoping to share our results in an exhibition in April.

If you are a Stockholm venue who’d like to feature some of the best creative young guns, please get in touch.
