One Design Week Plovdiv 2015
The topic of ONE DESIGN WEEK (June 19 – 28, Plovdiv) festival’s seventh edition is Digital One. The theme will be explored in the central exhibition of the festival Being Post-Digital, which is curated by René Beekman. The Being Post-Digital exhibition shows a selection of works by artists from Bulgaria and abroad. The featured projects combine various artistic fields, such as contemporary art, design, fashion and photography, which illustrate the interdisciplinary artistic approach of the 21st century. The topic about the post-digital era is accompanied by various special events that are part of the festival program.
In the last day of the festival, the forum day, I had the opportunity to hear many different designers and artists talk about their work. The ones that capture more my attention and interested was KARLSSON AND WILKER – A graphic design studio based the USA. I was amazed by their work, very avant garde and variety of projects that include identities, signage & wayfinding, print, motion, web. – YURI SUZUKI – Is a sound artist, designer and electronic musician. He produces work that explores the realms of sound through interactive and exquisitely designed installations. – and last Halla Helgadóttir – She is Manager Director of Iceland Design Center and talk about Iceland and how rapidly is developing a in the world of design. Strategic support of design as a discipline has come to be recognized as a successful national policy.
