CIID in the news

Denmark’s overlooked elite education. This is how Danish news magazine Mandag Morgen refers to Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID) where Design School Kolding hosts the Interaction Design Programme.

-Designers of tomorrow are entrepreneurs as well as anthropologists who know how to connect knowledge of aesthetics, technology and materials with a humanistic expertise in user behaviour, the magazine writes in the 24 March edition. It goes on:

Designers must be excellent judges of character
-Just like Apple’s iPhone, tomorrow’s cutting-edge inventions are fabulously designed, technically superior and intuitive. The latter requires user insights which regular market analyses and questionnaires won’t provide. Therefore, designers need to be excellent judges of character.

And indeed that is the CIID philosophy. It may well be Denmark’s smallest design school but also one of the world’s most recognised schools turning out some of the most sought-after design talents in the industry.
