In the academic process, students are used to spend months working on the same project. Sometimes it gets difficult to take decisions and to develop a position. In this 4-day-workshop we tried to bring the aspect of time into the decision-making process.
To enhance and accelerate the process of making decisions, the students were asked to work on one headline and topic per day (news, business, design and people). A printed headline was presented every evening. Colour and format were defined in advance.
The participants are forced to make quick decisions and take risks to realise a tangible product at the end of the day. Under time pressure, production parameters lead to spontaneous products. The results are less important than the actual decisions made during the day.
