Graphic Design Festival, Breda

Last month, I presented international design research by the Design Council at the Graphic Design Festival, Breda.

The seminar was titled 'Design and Personality' and instead of repeating myself, find out more info on the Design Council's brand new blog. Or read my text copied from the blog, below:

"A brand new celebration of graphic design took over Breda for 6 weeks in May and June under the banner of The Graphic Design Festival Breda (GDFB).

Graphic design proliferated the city with exhibitions, public installations, seminars, workshops, events and 100’s of visiting and invited designers and researchers from all over the world.

The focal point of the Festival was the opening of the first-in-the-world, Graphic Design Museum, a sharp new space in the city tracing the history of Dutch graphic design and inviting international designers to exhibit their work.

This month's featured designer is Ji Lee who has displayed some of his personal work, such as The Bubble Project, a way for the public to engage with our every-growing advertising and media culture, and make their own voice heard.

The Design Council was also invited to present an international perspective of design at a seminar during the festival. I talked about ‘Design and Personality’ and how personalities in graphic design influence the work of designers and carve out new areas for them to work within."
