What is the Design Day Marathon?
The most fashionable design competition
As one of the most important academic activities during Beijing Design Week, Design Day Marathon is a large-scale international design workshop initiated by the Science, Art and Fashion Festival and jointly organized by Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology and domestic and foreign universities. The content of the event includes lectures, workshops and exhibitions, etc. Since 2016, it has gathered more than 100 universities from more than 10 countries to participate, and it has accumulated more than 7,000 students during the process. It is not only an international design education platform for schools, teachers, students and the industry but also an open design communication platform for discussing design issues, sharing design aspirations and producing high value-added schemes.
Who is the Design Day Marathon for?
The Design Day Marathon promotes the rapid integration of students into interdisciplinary knowledge learning through cutting-edge teaching methods and design tools, and flipping the design teaching to a "learning before teaching" model through a different research approach to enhance the students' learning motivation.
The workshop teams come from the cross-college membership, allowing students and faculty from different institutions to break up into project teams, making the project team composition sufficiently diverse so that students can greatly enhance their sense of honor and participation in the learning process and accelerate their initiative. Over the years, the participating students mainly distributed in 12 countries, including China, Italy, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Sweden, South Korea, Russia, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
