Three third year London College of Communication (LCC) students from the BA Graphic Media Design course are celebrating the hand-in of their final year’s work with a trip to Grafist, an international graphic design education event held in Istanbul, Turkey.
Attracting students, educators and designers from all around the world, the five day event, which began on Monday 7 May, gives those attending the chance to meet, discuss and exchange ideas about the future of graphic design within a global context of education and practice.
The three students, Julian Goll, Caroline Claisse and Tsevetelina Tomova where chosen to attend the event by LCC tutors Sarah Temple and Gulizar Cepoglu and will be making the most of their time in Turkey at Grafist’s workshops, seminars and activities alongside additional events taking place on the shores of the Istanbul’s Bosphorus river.
Grafist 16 will also see the launch of a new collaborative online poster design project titled ‘Good Morning Future’, drawing attention to the economic recession experienced throughout the world and especially in Greece, Turkey’s neighbour country.
