29.10 GRAPHIC: Fickle Design? – moderated by Dawid Korzekwa

We should hear even more designers speaking about honest and intelligent design, without self-promotion and preaching, says Jeffrey Keedy and  criticizes stupid beliefs about designers and the theory of graphic design. We need to talk about Polish graphic design – we need to discuss, exchange experiences and opinions, and discuss again. After all, everything undergoes evolution. And if everything changes (panta rhei), then Polish design does, too – although it is still trying to catch up wit the West. We should remember, though, that Polish designers are perfectly able to develop their own design language, and they have a lot to say to the world. The point is: how to make the world hear them?
