Online Poster Design Project
Kalimera Mellon / Merhaba Gelecek / Good Morning Future
A project by Grafist 16, the 16th International Istanbul Graphic Design Week, about the future of graphic design, on the occasion of Icograda World Communication Design Day
27th of April, the birthday of Icograda (International Council of Graphic Design Associations) is celebrated each year as the World Communication Design Day.
Grafist 16, in celebration of this important international event, is organizing an online poster design project to introduce new ideas and come up with creative solutions for the future of visual communication design, design education and the design profession: "Kalimera Mellon / Merhaba Gelecek / Good Morning Future".
The structure of visual communication design and design education along with the identity of the designer are changing constantly, owing to the developments in the social, economical, cultural and technological spheres.
The economical recession experienced throughout the world and especially in the European Union left its greatest impact on our neighbour Greece. It is now the people of Greece who have to pay for the mistakes of their governing bodies. During the intensity of the economic recession, life has become very hard also for the Greek graphic designers. The youth who are currently in education cannot look forward with hope to the future of their chosen profession.
Grafist published a call addressed to the world’s graphic designers, design educators and design students:
We would like to propose our colleagues in design education to organize and lead a workshop on 27 April 2012, Icograda World Communication Design Day. We invite the students who will participate in the workshops to salute the Greek graphic designers and student friends by saying: Kalimera Mellon / Merhaba Gelecek / Good Morning Future".
We believe that our fellow graphic designers who are not still teaching, will also show their solidarity with their individual contributions to Kalimera Mellon / Merhaba Gelecek / Good Morning Future, Online Poster Design Project."
Our aim is to publish the online posters, participating in the project on the web and also exhibit them in various venues as part of the events taking place in Grafist 16.
With our sincere thanks to the designers, educators and students for their contributions to the project.
