Quotes:

“School assignments are colourful, there can be many “good” solutions. Everybody can show the side where they are really good at, in our work emphasis is on individual approach.”
graduate student MARCELL PUSKÁS

“The graphic artist is responsible for the message, its artistic and aesthetic quality, however, beyond this, they have to take social and ecologic factors into consideration. What effect does the message have? What materials to use when a packaging is designed? What effect will it have on the environment? We would like to introduce our students into the experimental workshop of (re)interpreted graphic design so that we can change the world together.”
GYULA JÚLIUS DLA
