The Brilliance of the Past Year in Turkish Design
It’s easy to get lost in our own design bubbles—but as Istanbul’s Association of Graphic Designers proves, it’s been a powerful year for Turkish design.
Following an awards ceremony on Nov. 29, the organization’s 39th Graphic Design Exhibition is now online, and the results are a visual wonderland.
Sponsored by Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi, the exhibition features 746 pieces from 283 designers. Mobile events around the collection are currently in the works—as are plans to launch a full Graphic Design Exhibition Digital Archive that will offer a broad look at the past four decades of Turkish design, showcasing the evolution of styles and trends alike.
From among the many, many pieces in the latest exhibition, here are some of our favorites. With a particular emphasis on posters, and a bevy of exciting student work, the future is bright, indeed. Browse the entire collection here.
