Cyprus : GRID19 - Design Matters

GRID19 Conference – 6th-8th December 2019 by the Cyprus Association of Graphic Designers & Illustrators Cyprus

The Cyprus Association of Graphic Designers & Illustrators is organizing the first annual GRID Conference (Graphic & Illustration Design). The GRID conference will be focused on targeted themes on graphic design & illustration, and will host lectures, screenings, workshops, as well as open discussions.

The first GRID will take place on the 6th-8th of December 2019, at the Cyprus University of Technology in Limassol, titled “Design Matters”, and will include the screening of the Documentary “Graphic Means’, 8 lectures, 3 workshops, and an open discussion. GRID19 aims to create an active network of professionals and students, to inspire, as well as offer practical and theoretical knowledge to the participants. A detailed program will follow.

Friday, December 6th: Documentary screening 19:00 – 21:00
The “Graphic Means (2017)” explores the graphics creation process from the 1950s until the 1990s, just before the advent of the computer that revolutionized graphic design.
The Documentary, directed by Briar Levit, features names that have left an era in graphic design, such as Ellen Lupton, Malcolm Garret, Steve Heller, Ken Garland, and Adrian Shaughnessy.

Saturday, December 7th: Lectures 10:00-17:00
Through these lectures, we will meet experienced designers from Cyprus and abroad, who will share with us personal experiences throughout their graphic design & illustration journeys. The lectures will be focusing on issues that concern the whole community (eg: on the different aspects of a project, on what is crucial to the development of a professional in the field.). All of the presentations will take place on Saturday, December 7th at CUT in Limassol, and will last 30 minutes each.
