We’re delighted to be hosting the POST Design Festival again. Denmark’s only festival focused on graphic design, illustration and visual communication
POST returns to SPACE10 this August to explore the social impact of design, the politics of image making and the ethics of creative practice.
POST, which made its debut last year and bills itself as a celebration of “the working life of the visual communicator and the ethics of design”, will take place our headquarters in Copenhagen’s buzzy meatpacking district on 17–20 August. It will bring together some of the most progressive voices in the design world—from designers and illustrators to image makers and academics—to consider contemporary visual communication from the perspectives of society, politics and ethics.
Speakers from a range of disciplinary backgrounds will discuss how graphic design, digital design and illustration can and should have a positive impact on the society in which it operates. They include as Mark Hurrell, Head of Design at the UK’s Government Digital Service, and Adrian Shaughnessy, designer, educator and writer of “How to be a Graphic Designer Without Losing your Soul”. According to the festival’s organisers, “speakers will explore the personal and political aspects of their work, debates will tease out the realities of personal and commercial practice, and workshops will allow participants to explore new approaches to creation and communication”.
The POST programme will include a series of talks, debates and workshops during the day and social events in Copenhagen’s buzzy meatpacking district in the evening. To buy tickets—visit postdesignfestival.org/
