Ljubljana (Slovenia) - On 20-21 May, 2008,  at the Garni Hotel in Ljublijana, Slovenia, Carin Goldberg (Carin Goldberg Design), James Biber (Pentagram) and Gail Anderson (SpotCo) will be speaking about their various experiences and projects in the design industry.

The schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, 20 May 2008
Carin Goldberg will talk about her influences, how they have all inspired her view of the world, and how they have moved her to create something new. She will also talk about the obsessive-compulsive side of design and how she gets lost in the process. She will share her explorations for recent projects including a magazine for Gallup and the design of an identity for the New York restaurant City Bakery’s first annual Hot Chocolate Festival, and talk about how the journey of an idea can be as fulfilling as the final result.

James Biber will share the eleven most important things he has learned about design, using cinema as his inspiration. He will also survey the history of Pentagram; talk about projects, old and new, including his designs for some of the best-loved restaurants in Manhattan; the challenge of putting rock ‘n’ roll and motorcycles in museums; and the design of a luxury home on the Atlantic Ocean.

Wednesday, 21 May 2008
James Biber will discuss experiences as varied as revisiting mid-century modernism in the 21st century for a private home; riding a motorcycle across the U.S. for the Harley-Davidson Museum; and restoring the luster of a movie-star home from Hollywood’s Golden Age; among others.

Gail Anderson will look at life on the Great White Way; what it's like to design for Broadway, New York's theater mecca. Learn about her transition from the world of magazine design to working in an advertising agency. She will talk about teaching graphic design to the talented, the curious and the bored. Listen to tall tales and see examples of student typography videos and high school workshop projects. Discover the world of design education, and learn about advanced degrees in our field. Explore the world of working on design books, and how the process has helped keep her work fresh in the classroom.

The seminar will take place on 20 and 21 May 2008 at Garni Hotel, Miklošičeva 9, Ljubljana, between 9:15 am and 4:30 pm. The lectures will be held in English and will have no simultaneous translation. The fee for the seminar is 320 EUR (VAT excluded), and 110 EUR (VAT excluded) for students.
