Berlin Appeals 2021 – Poster Design Workshop

online course
when 11 October 2021 - 15 October 2021
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 490

Posters are a public matter. As life-sized images, they dominate in the public space and affect us with their unavoidable messages. This relationship between the poster and space will be the focus of the workshop. We will create poetic posters that will make the voices of young designers seen the city streets of 2021.

By considering the interchangeability of artistic expressions and sociopolitical persuasion, we will establish a specific attitude in a personal and contemporary interpretation of ‘the poster’. Focusing on individual positions, we will find our personal space in public to reflect on our stories as observers, designers, authors, researchers, mediators, publishers, and human beings.

Your experience will guide you through the subsequent design process where we will deal with the following questions:

How do I develop my message out of my research field?
What is the interplay between its content and form?
What are the appropriate rhetorical means to express my message?
What role do the different iconic and typographic components play, and how do they interlace?

The output is your appeal for and in the public space in the form of a poster.
