Assel Akhmidzhanova

Graduated in 2021

After a bachelor in Visual Art in Kazakhstan Assel started working in fashion retail – but she realized that she wanted to deal with art as an organizer. She got enrolled in IED – Master in Arts Management and she started to be more interested in the modern art of the world and of her country.

“IED helped me to make the shift from fashion retail onto modern art. I really loved that our teachers were not only theoretical but practical professionals working in this sphere. We could visit the Uffizi gallery, speak to its General Manager, our teachers organized Pitti Uomo – it was a great opportunity indeed to go deep into the sphere. IED provided collaboration and projects with them. Also IED helped me to meet a lot of interesting creative people”.

Her most significant project by now has been ”Green, Yellow, Red and Green again” exhibition by Almagul Menlibaeva at TSE Art Destination, in Astana. The gallery deals with the analysis and exhibiting of Central Asian art, they often also invite foreign artists. That one was a modern photography, video installation and digital art.

Xueyu Ji

Graduated in 2021

ADI-FAD, the Industrial Design Association linked to FAD (Fostering Arts and Design) invited young, designers who’d recently graduated to submit their Final, Master or Postgraduate Project to participate in the ADI 2022 Awards for the ADI 2022 Medals.

These awards were created in 1976 to build bridges between the academic world and industry. They’re something of a tradition on the Spanish design scene, rewarding a new generation of talent.

The aim is to acknowledge and promote innovative projects, with particular emphasis on the creative process and research; the formal, functional and aesthetic presentation of the final project; the sustainability of the project, its social impact and the appropriate application of technologies and materials.

There are 12 award winners’ medals: 9 bronze, 2 silver and 1 gold.

Two IED Madrid students made the final, winning a silver and the ADI 2022 gold medal.

It’s the most prestigious design award in Spain in the category, as well as being highly acclaimed at international level.


The medals went to:

GOLD, Xueyu Ji for the SWAY project

Sway is a measuring instrument that transforms visual information into auditory information.

It’s designed inclusively for everyone, and especially for blind people. Sway turns visual information into auditory information so a blind person can hear it.
