Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd



The University of Design Schwäbisch Gmünd believes in a modern education while respecting its long tradition. Its success is based on its ability to initiate continuous and well-considered change. The HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd draws its design force from this blending of continuity and the influences of scientific, societal, and economic developments. The roots of the University go back to the year 1776, in which the first precursor institution, a school of drawing, was founded. The concepts of the Bauhaus and the former Hochschule für Gestaltung Ulm now influence the educational ideas of the renowned course in the foundations of design at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd.
