Snapshot of International Design Innovators Symposium
Los Angeles is buzzing with design activity this month, most visibly with the architecture and interiors-oriented Design Festival which kicked off yesterday. But much more low-profile — and much more exciting for lovers of the current international graphic design scene — is a free, five-hour symposium happening tomorrow, June 15, at Otis College of Art and Design.
The “Work and Play” discussions are a culmination and celebration of the week’s activities. The designers will discuss their practice with respect to how they work and think. Coordinator Kali Nikitas, Otis’s MFA Graphic Design and BFA Communication Arts Chair, sees it as “a unique opportunity to see seven studios from four different countries in a setting that’s small, intimate, and collegial.” Student workspaces will also be open for viewing.
Seating is limited, so reservations are required through “Work and Play”’s Facebook page.
