MEETING DESIGN AT CAFÉS

Meeting up with people in cafés has become a typical feature of Brno's modern-day lifestyle. This September and October, the Morgal, Atlas, Era and Scala Cafés will host a series of lectures, discussions and workshops that will allow the wider public to meet face to face with designers and to familiarise themselves with their works. The content of the event is linked to the 26th International Biennale of Graphic Design held in Brno and the 2013 Most Beautiful Czech Book of the Year exhibition, as well as associated topics, such as typography and book creation. In addition to traditional graphic design disciplines, the public will be able to learn more about motion and interaction design. The curator of Meeting Design at Cafés is Žaneta Drgová, Head of the No. 1 Graphic Design Studio of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Brno University of Technology.
