Plus International Design Festival - Call for exhibitors
Thursday, July 10, 2008
Press release from the issuing company(July 09, 2008) Run by designers for designers, the Plus International Design Festival provides a platform for professional designers, artists and makers; servesas an arena for experimental work; a forum for debate; and a meeting pointfor the international design community.
The 2008 Festival is now seeking exhibitors to work to the theme of Hybrid, which has been chosen as the focus of this year's event as it not only aptly describes Britain as a nation but it also expresses the current state of graphic communications. Britain is a hybrid community that absorbs, transforms and transmits myriad influences from around the world to create something new and exciting, but is still recognizably British. Graphic and typographic design are also fusion disciplines that amalgamate graphic languages from around the world and from across the other creative sectors ? often with surprising results. The 2008 Festival seeks to expose the hybrid in design.
