Garry Emery Design will be on hand for the opening session of DiGiT to give key insights into its award-winning designs; Sweden Graphics will give trouble-shooting advice for when designs don’t turn out as hoped; while Parcel will teach designers to escape from the design rulebook and explore further possibilities.
Also on the agenda is tips for designers to get to top management from professor Ron Newman, Andrew Hoyne will take visitors through a brand journey to identify unique traits and personalities within a brand hierarchy, while Phillip Brophy will explore digital art form and crack the myth of interactivity.
DiGiT 2004 will also provide visitors with a rare personal opportunity to join a small group of fellow aspirants and discover the talent, philosophies and workings that have made David Carson one of the leading names of typography and graphic design.
Carson will be on hand and will set a student assignment and together, teacher and ’creatives’, will be guided through a self-critique. DiGiT organisers say Carson’s workshop methodology enables the student themselves to discover and pursue their own self-realisation. This workshop offers the student artist a space to redefine and rediscover the creative - an environment that will provide options and opportunity for new visual communications, new graphics solutions and constructions that are sure to look beyond the rigid rules and boundaries that are set by popular culture design.
As usual, DiGiT 204 will also provide informative seminars on such topics as photography, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Web-day and Quark, to name just a few
