We Love Alliance Graphique International

6 October 2011

at AGI in Barcelona

Earlier this week, some of our HND students made the trip to Spain to attend the Alliance Graphique International (AGI) Open Conference in Barcelona.

The guys were lucky enough to see some of the world's most famous graphic designers showing their work and sharing their ideas.

With Paula Scher
Tadas, Jonny, Viktorjia and Sarah meet the one and only Paula Scher.

Pentagram illuminaries Paula Scher, Angus Hyland and Michael Bierut all presented talks, as did Marion Banjtes, and of course Stefan Sagmeister, who talked about his upcoming movie project, 'The Happy Film'. Educators and writers Steven Heller and Lars Muller were also amongst the speakers. In total there were 27 AGI members presenting their work and ideas on design.

Will this event ever make it to Edinburgh? We hope so! The 2012 conference will however be held in Hong Kong.
