BREAK THE MOULD | graduation 2018

By | Blog, Events, News | No Comments

On Friday the 11th of January we came together to celebrate our Graduates of 2018.

HDS encourages bold and disruptive design that is produced once a deep understanding of traditional design values are met. You must first learn the rules to break the rules!

Staying true to traditional design practices does not mean they are left in the past. HDS is a forward-thinking institution and proves to show consistent adaptation to their courses to incorporate new technologies, which equips their students with a broad skill set.

With this mindset, a dynamic learning environment is created and student’s creativity and experimentation results in ideas that BREAK THE MOULD.
