Program Description

The course will be delivered in English.

The Specializing Master in Design for Kids & Toys is organized in partnership with Assogiocattoli, which represents Italian manufacturers and distributors working in this industry.

Italy generally excels in design (that means culture, method, and practice of project and production) in several fields like fashion, food, and creativity applied to multiple activities, but in the toy and childcare productions, Italian design has yet to play a key role in building a recognizable identity.

The "Design System" and "System of Enterprise" shows significant episodes but certainly not a coherent and recognizable oversight in children's products, in furniture for children, in the game, and in the toy sector. From this scenario, comes a need for poly-technical and multi-skill training. Designers and, in particular, strategic designers have the role of creating scenarios understanding the many aspects and skills that compose the system.

The Master will be held in e-learning mode + 2 workshops in Milan with international companies.

Goals

The Specializing Master in Design for Kids & Toys aims to train, in terms of content and method, a new generation of designers able to manage complex design processes in the world of products and services for kids.
