“Critical Design Council – Content Aware Square is a new initiative of students at Royal College of Art (UK), Werkplaats Typografie (NL), ECAL (CH), Gerrit Rietveld Academie (NL), UdK Berlin (DE), Manystuff (FR), Central St. Martins (UK), ENSAD (FR), and Yale University School of Art (US) to approach the question of criticality within graphic design as a practice and industry.
