A colourful, creative community.
MDC is an inclusive community of newcomers who come together to learn, enhance and apply their creative skills to provide original and effective graphic design solutions.

How we became a designer

We are mainly from a conflict region in the middle east and took a dangerous trip to Germany.

We have struggled to connect our previous experiences and the real world, trying to make it in Berlin.

Now using our creative skills to create original design.

 
 

Professional Integration to be designers

Step 1
Learning Community

​Open-door and free design courses in graphic and UI/UX for newcomers in Berlin.

Partner with like-minded organizations to find migrants interested in the design world and provide a safe, supportive and positive environment to explore design.

Supported by ReDI School
Step 2
Launchpad (Apprenticeship)

A select cohort of students from our Learning Community work on real-world client projects to build a design portfolio.

With in-depth guidance and mentoring from our advisors and teachers, our students not only gain practical design knowledge but also skills necessary to thrive as a professional designer.
