Following the months during which the pandemic has forced us to see each other virtually and interact at a distance, live meetings are back. Here are some unmissable appointments to return to look each other in the eyes, to exchange opinions, to share ideas... to live the great IED community even more intensely! For this reason the IED Alumni Network goes on tour.
How? With a series of appointments in the IED offices in Italy and abroad where our Alumni can discover everything about our platform and all the advantages that they can have within it: job opportunities related to the sectors of Design, Visual Arts, Fashion, Communication and of Management, Art and Restoration; events and other occasions to get back in touch with old classmates or to meet professionals with whom to start working collaborations; in-depth articles, inspirational stories and video interviews with former students who are now established figures in their field of reference; information on the services offered to the community, like meetings with IED Alumni One to One mentors, exclusive privileges and experiences.
The tour has started on October 15 at IED Cagliari and will end in February 2022.
In Cagliari we met Alumnus Matteo Congiu, with a IED Diploma in Product Design and a Master in Digital Fabrication at IED Milano sponsored with a scholarship by IED and Samsung Italia. Today he is Creative Director of Sudlegno, his family company that has been in the wood sector for over 3 generations, making windows, furniture and outdoor structures. OTQ, the design studio he founded, has been selected to participate in the BOUTIQUE DESIGN NEW YORK 2021 fair, with BISU the cork bed and DEA the mirror presented this year in the new collection.
Then we went to the new IED Venezia headquarter in Ca'Tron (Roncade, TV), where we took part in the Diploma Cerimony and hosted 2 Alumni: Mattia Carbone, Web Designer and teacher at IED, and Lucia Trevisan, co-founder of the art collective a.topos Venice.
