Design Walk WdKA

A Design Walk is normally a guided 2-3 hours tour to local design agencies but in this case you will also visit a gallery. The design agencies has promised to welcome you into their offices, answer your questions and exhibit some previous work. This is a chance to meet great designers eye-to-eye on their home ground and a perfect way for international guests to experience the Rotterdam design scene. Each stop is about 25 minutes.

There are three groups on Friday and three on Saturday and each group contains about twelve participants plus two design guides. The small size of the groups and the bi-lingual guides that accompanies each group will allow you to better interact and discuss with the agencies designers. The groups will visit the agencies/gallery in different order and on the Friday walk we will also make a stop outside Boombjes for the flag hauling ceremony.

Exhibition of work by Willem de Kooning Rotterdam University’s Graphic Design students.

Witte de Withstraat 7a


Sander van Loon en Merijn van Essen say about their work: We are not held back by a certain style or set of rules within graphic design. To innovate and experiment is what forms the foundation of our work. Every new assignment is a reason to go beyond what we already know and can do. Our most important goal is to find the opportunity to work together and learn with each project.
