What is the Visual Discovery Conference?

The Visual Discovery Conference (VDC) is a student-centered gathering of renowned design schools from around the world. Therefore, student collaboration is at the very heart of this inspiring week-long event.

In workshops on various topics, international teams work on infographic designs for several days and discuss and present them to each other in a big presentation at the final day. Accompanied by keynotes and talks by teachers, an exhibition, a design competition and networking days, the event offers a variety of opportunities for intercultural exchange and professional discussions.

Hosted annually by one of the involved universities, the VDC also offers participants a fascinating insight into various cultural environments and the campus life of international design universities.

Our motto for 2022: first sight. then seeing.

Like every place, Switzerland and Lucerne can offer some stereotypes, at the first sight of a hasty visitor. However, by observing the landscape, city, its buildings, monuments and museums more carefully and speaking with the citizens, unique and unforgettable aspects emerge.

This workshop intends to highlight these characteristics, making use
of information design, data visualization and visual storytelling representation systems.
