In the era of the digital, what could a printed publication offer to an artistic project?
Does print media still have a place in the future of publication?
Which are the limits and which are the advantages?
How could digital media and print be combined to form a new way of reading publications?
LABattoir in collaboration with Artecitya project by Goethe Institut Thessaloniki organised:
Publication Design Workshop with Anja Lutz: The Artecitya Case
Guest Lecturer: Dimitris Koliadimas - Founder & Creative Director of Semiotik Design Agency
In a 5-day workshop, we explored the possibilities of the publication design, the ways of printing, the combinations of different media, bidding and folding techniques, and the power of book as an object and its potential of creating an experience.
Finally we worked on a real case, developing several approaches and concepts for the Artecitya publication.
