Design PF


We have produced some brand new films to inform you about our design programs: How does it work during the pandemic, what are the focuses of our faculty, and where did our graduates end up? Most of the content is in German, but you'll get the gist, for sure.
... and: if you feel like dancing, you can find many DJ sets on our Soundcloud profile below!

Why study design at all, and why in Pforzheim?

We asked four of our professors: What is special about us, what is the 'Pforzheim spirit', and what does it take to be a successful creative student? Thomas Gerlach, Evelyn Echle, Sebastian Hackelsperger and Silke Helmerdig provide answers. They all agree: Creativity is the currency of the future and we provide a great training!

Studying design in Covid times

Up close: Our students filmed themselves and show how studying works during the pandemic - offline, at home, online, alone, with each other.

Projekt X von A – Z

In dieser Rubrik zeigen wir euch, welche Gedanken hinter den Projekten unserer Student*innen stehen: von der ersten Idee über den Entwurf bis hin zum fertigen Objekt.

X years after PF: Our graduates

Our graduates are scattered all over the world - but still keep in touch with us. We visited them and asked them to show us what they do today. And of course we also wanted to know how they look back on their time at Design PF and what influenced them most. To be continued!

More from our programs

Films of our students' projects from all semesters and courses are available on our Youtube channel and on Vimeo.

Something to listen to

On the occasion of the Werkschau WS 2020/21 our students have conducted some interviews with fellow students, professors and alumni and put some DJ sets online - enjoy!
