Equally empathetic (if significantly less uncanny-valley) is Out-In from Valerio Buccolieri, Luna Rainaldi, and Swami Soccorsi at IED Roma, who together tackled the change in the mental health of adolescents across a data-driven, research-based publication. Documenting the years between 2019-2022, Out-In focuses on the pandemic’s effects on teenagers’ daily lives. Created in two parts, an essential section of the first book, designed entirely in black and white, concerns an art workshop that engaged the students at the Don Mario Picchi Italian Solidarity Centre. The second companion book maintains the same grid structure as the first but presents a more colourful style, including 25 works of art and 15 drawings created in collaboration with two artists. Five colours were selected, each associated with specific emotions, and gradients were then made, each linked to a specific disorder, enlivened through graphic pop-ups and curiosities on the subject.

As we can see, IED’s global outlook, coupled with its strong cultural identity, welcomes creatives from across the world, creating an inviting environment that not only enriches the educational experience but also prepares students to thrive in a globalised world. The Istituto Europeo di Design continues to commit to its mission of nurturing creativity and fostering new innovative minds. Through their art and design, IED students not only tell their stories but also invite us to see the world through a new lens.
