Carol Bergin will need to approve that you worked on “The Interdisciplinary Project” before we add you as a collaborator.

The Interdisciplinary Project

A platform set up to facilitate a much needed interdisciplinary dialogue between courses at Kingston University.
We designed a collaborative interdisciplinary identity, website, and a space to hold a week of workshops.
A Collaborative Identity
Gathering students from each course at Kingston School of Art, we ran a workshop to design an identity for the platform in a democratic and collaborative way.
We played word association games to describe a collective of interdisciplinary creatives, these words became more and more abstract and were then visualised using cut out shapes into flags.
From the workshop we designed this abstract flag. Each shape and colour is derived from the workshop’s flags and interpretations of what an interdisciplinary collective could be.
It acted as a toolbox of shapes for all future material, and a physical signifer of the platform during events.
Our website acted as an archive for all events and a notice board for upcoming projects.
Visit it here.
The project culminated in a week of workshops which was open to all disciplines and was run by students. We used the identity to design posters and promote the events.
Interdisciplinary Week was held in the foyer of Kingston School of Art, in a space we designed. We created a modular system of fabric screens that could easily adapt to the size and needs of each workshop. A collaboration noticeboard was also set up, finally allowing students to communicate about their projects across courses.
