I’m recently learning and developing skills as an Art Director. With many brainstorm sessions and inspirational sources I decided to do something with that instead of having ideas and let them disappear. Holding events to showcase the artistic creations of talented individuals is one of the many things I would love to accomplish.
Untitled is an organisation focused on development of individuals who are searching for an opportunity to discover new experiences and connect with different minded people outside of existing educational institutions.
UNTITLED is co-founded by Thanh Hai Cao & Rik Jaco Jansen, both felt they had to do something to uplift the moral of their education, everybody was focusing on school but outside of that they don’t know what to do to develop their skills.
Why is it called UNTITLED you may ask? As UNTITLED we want every project to stand on it’s own, we felt keeping it untitled will fill in the expectations of the creators so they can name their project anything they want without any restrictions.
Origin & The problem
We’ve thought up this concept to help fellow students as well as non-students to develop their skill, find their passion and provide the experience they need to succeed in life. Untitled is a project created by students who felt that just the school system wasn’t enough to develop their skills. A lot of students don’t know what to do besides school when it comes to development, companies ask for a certain experience which they express in years in their job applications, yet most students have the capabilities yet not the right required experience in years. We feel that in this day and age, everything evolves so fast, a seasoned designer would have the same struggles adapting as a new designer who just learns the craft. So we decided that the best course of action would be to give the students the opportunity to grow and let them experiment with new and exciting skills. Challenging them to become a more rounded professional when they eventually return / step into the workforce.
The logo is created out of the three principles that we work from. While developing this project we noticed that the number 3 always comes back in one shape or the other. The three squares represent the three steps we take, research, conceptualization & execution. Another way to view it, the logo looks like an unfinished window, with one square missing, it stands for the fulfillment that we want to develop has yet to come.
So as we said previously, we want to help develop skills. This skill could be art, design or even organisational skills.
We as group focuses on personal development as well as team development in a few ways. Untitled doesn’t teach but develops the person by working together with them on projects. Every individual is their own boss and controls their own process, yet they work towards one end goal. Naturally we all work towards that one goal. An Art & Design exposition.
At Untitled we work in three segments and research, conceptualization & execution. Each project has a certain theme and every individual has their own freedom in what they want to work on and what they want to showcase on the exposition. Being able to showcase your work to the world is a wonderful feeling, it helps you get the right exposure. After a fun process with peers you will develop that one skill, recognition and an extra slot filled in your resume.
