Graphic Design Festival Scotland
22–26 November 2019
Over a period of five days, Glasgow will be the venue for the sixth Graphic Design Festival – collaboration is given high priority here. Since its first edition in 2014, the organisers have welcomed around 200,000 visitors. Once again this year, Glasgow is going to host many well-known graphic designers, including Angus Hyland (Pentagram), Stefan Sagmeister and Eike König. Issues currently driving design forward will be elucidated in discussion groups and workshops. The aim is to exchange ideas, debate, and interlink the design scene across the world. Younger voices in the field will be bringing fresh ideas: students and alumni will be able to participate in a live project supported by established design agencies. There will also be an international poster competition in which the three best posters will be rewarded with cash and prizes.
