HSE Students Take Part in Chaumont Biennale of Graphic Design

HSE Students Take Part in Chaumont Biennale of Graphic Design

Three projects by HSE Art and Design School students have made it to the finals of an international student competition and will be presented at the Biennale of Graphic Design in Chaumont (France) from May 13 to September 24, 2017. The competition task was to use graphic design to create a tool or product that contributes to the transmission of knowledge.

Student: Anna Dmitrieva  3rd year

Curators: Stephan Lashko, Ivan Yakushev

Project: A book about eyes

A book about eyes is a project about various diseases of the human eyes. The student created a book of eight parts, each dedicated to a disease, with the impact of the project lying in its graphics. The first chapter provides information on the diseases. The contents are repeated with different graphics, depending on the disease it describes. For example, the part about color-blindness is shown as a color blind person would see it, and the part about cataracts demonstrates how it would be seen by a person with cataract.

Student: Daria Chuzhinova, 3rd year

Curators: Stephan Lashko, Ivan Yakushev

Project: Bukva

Bukva is a tool to create Cyrillic letters. It helps you study the Cyrillic alphabet and immerse yourself in the process of building symbols from their constituent parts. The tool is a transparent plate with cut-through elements of letters, and each is numbered so that anyone can use the manual and compile a Cyrillic letter. This expands font creativity and helps those interested learn more about the Cyrillic alphabet and the magic of typography.

Students: Alexandra Parkhomenko, Anastasia Ashukina, Viktoria Boyko (3rd year)

Curators: Stephan Lashko, Ivan Yakushev

Project: Genders*

These students chose gender as the subject in their project. Usually, only two genders are mentioned, the male and female ones, there are many more. The project aims to provide information on all key genders, to explain their differences, to structure and present this information in a clear and visible manner. The project includes two posters, a website, and a card game.

The poster is a chart of genders including their names, definitions, symbols, and key features. They are arranged in groups and subgroups, as in the Mendeleev’s periodic table of elements. The second poster consists of gender flags, where each colour has a meaning, and their combinations are individual and symbolic.

Since people have grown used to getting information from digital sources, these students created an interactive version of the gender chart as a website. This is the first resource to have collected the most complete information on various genders.

The project also includes is a card game in which each player can try roleplaying various genders. The interactive approach helps those playing better understand gender differences. You can see how the game works in this video.

Congratulations to our students and curators!
