Naples (Italy) - From 6-11 October 2009, the city of Naples will host the first edition of "Design Per. Settimana Internazionale della Grafica" (Design For. International Week of Graphic Design), an Icograda endorsed event. Unique to Italy, Design Per is organised by Icograda Professional Member, Aiap (Italian Association for Visual Communication Design).

Graphic design its everywhere in our daily life, although its more and more intangible. Design Per wants to make graphic design's role evident, by involving people in a series of discussions, talks, seminars. The event will investigate fields and practices of graphic design with conferences, round tables, exhibitions, workshops, open studios, typographic walks, projections. Design Per will host more then 50 speakers - designers, professors, authors - who will show us some of the several possibilities graphic design takes life today.

The event will include four workshops on different themes linked to four round tables: design for books, design for environment, design for enterprise, design for new languages. There will be also discussions on the profession and the relations with clients, on design for public institutions, on the role of medias in emergency situations as it was for the recent Abruzzo earthquake. All round tables and discussions will host designers and representatives of institutions and universities to animate confrontations and reflexions and involve professionals, students and normal people. The international conference will host designers, academics and anthropologists.

Design Per will host more then 50 speakers - designers, professors, authors - who will show us some of the several possibilities graphic design takes life today.
