In the first Corona semester, we developed a digital showroom for our students. Because you realize at the latest when it is no longer possible, how important it is to show your own work, to receive feedback and to enter into a professional discourse. So, without further ado, we have digitized our show of works, the 'Werkschau'. Since the launch in July 2020 we had 47,064 visitors! 1041 students show 4267 projects in pictures, text and film (as of 03/2023). The Werkschau website is also a top service for our students: They use their individual portfolio url for self-marketing in their social media channels such as Instagram.

Our students shape the cultural life of our city. Installations, exhibitions, performances and many cooperative projects are fields of experimentation for the budding designers. At up to 50 events a year, students can try themselves out as cultural actors and, with the support of the university, let the public participate in their work.

Our goal is to recruit talented young designers, that is why we advertise our degree programs with a wide range of consultation services. Over the course of a year, for example, 194 portfolio consultations were held online and on site, and 289 visitors attended our information days online and on site. We plan to resume our Design PF Ambassadors format, students who go into schools and present their degree programs, as soon as possible. Our Design PF Camp, inviting interested parties for workshop days together with the students during the fall vacations, was attended by 30 students (we around 130 applications). Our students are also involved in all these formats: they are ambassadors at eye level, proud to report on their development in their studies and to show interested visitors: Hey, you can do it too!

Our students are not only sought-after cooperation partners, they also provide interesting materials for the media.
Over the course of a year, more than 200 articles appear in every conceivable media outlet: daily newspapers, blogs, radio stations and TV formats. Sometimes a simple press release is the breakthrough for an undergraduate project, such as the completely new lace shoe by Sophia Lindner and her company act'ble. Sometimes companies find interesting works through press reports, cooperate with our students and produce their project ideas, such as the German learning book "Mein Deutschland" by Amelie Weinert, which was published by Langenscheidt.
