Designers in Residence Kortrijk video's

Every year, Designregion Kortrijk invites recently graduated designers from various creative disciplines to the Designers in Residence Kortrijkprogram. Every year, a book is made with their achievements, but there is also a video report each time that puts the creative achievements in the spotlight.
