Montreal (Canada) – Vilnius, Lithuania has been selected as the host location for Icograda’s first Design Week of 2011. Design Week is Icograda's signature event series addressing leading themes, thinking and trends within the communication design sector.

Spring: Icograda Design Week in Vilnius 2011 will explore design as a powerful process that transitions ideas into functional realities. Spring represents the beginning of the cycle where ideas are planted and through a meticulous strategic design process they come to life and we can reap their fruits.

Spring 2011 will be a great opportunity for designers, business leaders and government stakeholders to meet, discuss and explore design as a basis for development. Spring is a powerful tool, loaded with positive design energy waiting to be released. Spring forward with design.

Lithuania was selected based on the strength of a proposal put forward by the Lithuanian Graphic Design Association (LGDA). Symbolically, 2011 marks the 50 anniversary of the Department of Design at Vilnius Academy of Arts.
