PACK-AGE course closing show 17 May

In PACK-AGE packaging design course students get up-to-date knowledge about packaging design and packaging research and the teams are equipped with practical tools and means for managing their project work and its problems. This year’s theme is “green luxury”. The design teams have worked with new packaging solutions for chocolate, jewelry and sushi clients. Come and enjoy the results that the teams will present for the first time publicly on 17 May 2013 9:00-12:00 at Aalto Media Factory. Brunch for the quick. Welcome!

PACK-AGE is an innovative packaging design course uniting design, business and engineering thinking to project-based learning. Students work in interdisciplinary teams with real packaging projects from the industry. The idea is to use student’s competences, background and prior knowledge as a resource for creative group work. The project work is supported by a wide range of theme lectures. We have 6 teachers and spesialists from 4 schools teaching packaging design from different perspectives.

Nokia 3DK Hacking workshop 26th and 27th March

Go directly to voting page!

Nokia 3DK Hacking is a two-day workshop and competition to create your own Nokia Lumia 820 phone cover at Aalto Fablab. The best idea will receive actual Lumia 820 as a prize. Each idea is presented as an “elevator pitch” on a video, and the video collecting most votes on a soon-to-be announced voting page will be the winner.

Nokia recently open-sourced 3D data of the Lumia 820 back panel called 3DK (3D + SDK). This means that you can make more personal Lumia 820 and Aalto FabLab would like to help you to make protypes with our popular 3D printers.

There are a lot of Lumia users around the world and we can share your prototypes with them. We will get votes from them as well. Let the world decide which idea is the best. There are already a lot of ideas, let’s make even better ones!

The workshop will be whole day on March 26th and 27th. As there are limited number of seats, sign up now! If you are familiar with 3D modeling software, you have a great chance to join the competition.
