About the Cross Program Workshop

A Cross Program Workshop at Hyper Island in Sweden is the place where students from several of the programs come together and collaborate on a real life brief from one single client. During the 3 days, small teams of 5-6 students challenge themselves and the client to find creative solutions for the specific brief. On the final day, the teams present their solution for all other groups and the client gives instant feedback and comments. This is a fun, challenging and an exciting way to develop your team skills, get a feeling of the tools and methods that we use at Hyper Island, and show clients new perspectives from the talent that are housed there.
