This year forty young designers graduate from the Faculty of Design of the Art Academy of Latvia. In their final projects the graduates focus on the user of design and answer the question «Design — for whom?»

Stories Editorial

From June 5 to July 20 Design graduates’ days «Kam?» are going to take place in the Art Academy of Latvia (LMA). The programme includes an exhibition of young designers’ work and public presentations. At the Faculty of Design students are trained in functional design, environmental art, metal design and fashion design.

The name «Kam?» translates as «For whom?» and emphasizes a designer’s task and responsibility towards the user of design. «If the design is good, trousers fit perfectly and a sofa is truly comfortable. Everything goes the right way, design makes life easier and brings joy to it. Design is present in every item we use, every process we are involved in. We are all users of design, but we are not always aware of it,» graduates of the Faculty of Design explain.
