Art. 2: Theme
2.1 Description of the Theme: My Reuse Design
IED calls young creatives to develop ideas and projects describing ‘My Reuse Design’: please apply the reuse concept to the area of studies that you prefer, Fashion, Design, Visual Communication, Management.
“Reuse” means using an item more than once, for the same function, or for a second life, when it is used for a different purpose. By reusing, we can create new shapes from old materials. Reuse helps saving time, money, energy, and resources, it can offer quality products to people and organizations with limited means, it can generate jobs and business activities that contribute to the economy. Reuse is a very important part of a sustainable behavior. Reusing is different from recycling, which consists in processing used materials for the production of new objects.
Reuse can consist of different actions:  remanufacturing (reconstructing the object), regiving/regifting (taking a gift and giving it to someone else), repurposing (changing the function of an object), and nearly everything we buy and consume can be reused: old metal cans, clothes, textiles, plastic bags, bicycle tires, packaging tools are just a few examples of objects that can generate creative reuse.
For each IED area a briefing has been defined.
Applicants must develop the theme relating to the area they wish to apply for (Fashion, Design, Visual Communication, Management); the choice of the element to design or describe depends on the course you chose and, when available, on the specialization you prefer.
In the section n. 5.4 you will find the technical details to present your projects, depending on the level of the Master program you chose.
