Main aim of projects and activities is to present graphic design as an open platform that focus on development of critical practice by organising workshops, exhibitions, lectures, talks or individual projects. The projects objectives also encompass establishment of designer networks witch have interest in critical practice, and tend to redefine issues related to visual communication and graphic design.

Open Design Studio addresses critical topics within the visual culture, media, technology, and art domains, approaching problems from diverse social and political aspects, and at the same time provides outlook on graphic design as an open and critical discipline.
