Creativity: What’s your motto? Wear your motto!

Too often people on the internet copy pictures and slogans to express their “individuality” – only to actually do the opposite and to become one among millions with the same profile picture, motto, …

In a workshop, students got creative. They reflected on what is important to them, what is an important part of their life and personality. They then set to work to show this to the world – not with the help of a profile picture, but by making it part of their outward appearance (e.g. as a label on their clothes or as their bag).

They created logos and emblems first on paper and then transferred them with the help of a computer and a laser cutting machine into wood, onto transfer foil (to iron onto clothes) or stitched patterns/symbols onto their clothes. In the end, they shared their results and the stories behind it with their partners.
