The Mediterranean Design Workshop is a new international design and cultural event that will take place annually on the Greek island of Tinos. It’s organized by design professionals, encouraging a global view on everything design-related, and anything design can find common ground with for a creative intercourse.
Ten Images for Ithaca offer to design students and young professionals the opportunity to spend a week, this July, on the island of Ithaca, focusing on design and the creative process through two workshops led by British typographer and educator Phil Baines and the creative directors of the Athens based agency “pi6 communication design”.
Typefaces and textual information in general, despite their crucial importance to our culture and development, are often neglected when it comes to visual communication and graphic design. This problem is particularly acute in the Central European, post-communist environment.
The next edition of The International Typography Workshops is devoted to dynamic graphic design and kinetic typography, associated most of all with the on-screen edition and electronic media. Two-weeks classes (in English) are conducted by Dan Boyarski from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh and Jan Kubasiewicz – MASS ART, in Boston (USA).
