COURSE DURATION
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

In the current market, saturated with industrial products, self-produced designs are becoming increasingly popular. Product categories are varied and range from decorative items to those for the person, but all of them are the result of the creativity and the work of designers who manage the entire design process, from idea to production and distribution. This new phenomenon is now at the center of international design debate. It is a less known and less reviewed path, but definitely very productive. Theoretically, self-production constitutes a kind of affirmation of autonomy; in practice, it often results in a real self-promotional strategy that young designers use to get in touch with the industry. Other times it is rather a step towards forms of production handled personally by the designer, a hybrid between artisanal crafts and limited series; thus the figure of the designer/craftsman and designer/entrepreneur emerges. Inspired by a renewed interest in manual and direct experimentation, self-production can become the main path for young designers.
