During the three-day Weltformat workshops, participants work with renowned designers on their own projects and thus get to know new design approaches. In addition, the workshops offer participants the opportunity to get to know other graphic designers.
This workshop is booked out.
Fachklasse Grafik, Rössligasse 12
Would you like to get to know new design approaches, specific techniques and work intensively on your own projects for three days? This year’s workshop leaders will make you leave your comfort zone and show you new ways of designing. Playfully, they’ll broaden your horizon and challenge gridlocked patterns. You will work on your own designs and get profound feedback.
Take the opportunity to meet designers from all over the world during the workshop and the Weltformat Graphic Design Festival. The workshops not only offer valuable inputs and inspiration for your own work but are also a chance to meet, exchange and network.
Ines Cox is a graphic designer and runs her own studio in Antwerp. In 2009 she graduated from the Luca School of Arts (Gent, Belgium) and continued her studies for a second Master's degree in typography at Werkplaats Typografie (Arnhem, Netherlands). She has realised a range of digital and print-based projects with a variety of artists, publishers and institutions. In addition to commissioned works, she also carries out self-initiated projects.
From 2014 to 2019 Ines worked as a researcher and lecturer for typography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp, Belgium). Additionally, she has conducted workshops and lectured at various international institutions. In 2019 she published the book SAVE, the result of a two-year research project. SAVEexplores the relationship between designers and the technology they use. For the publication, Ines observed and documented digital interactions and computer- or software-generated processes and consciously imitated their aesthetics. That way, the designer recorded seemingly unimportant work steps that ultimately lead to satisfactory results.
