Symposium

Datum

Sa 8.10.22 / 11 - 16 Uhr

Ort

Stattkino, Löwenplatz 11

A pair of moderators, two short questions and six well-known guests from the graphics scene make up the mix that makes the two-part Symposium. For each question, three luminaries speak with the two moderators on stage. The first part is about motion design and its qualities as well as possible effects. The rest of the discussion will focus on what moves designers and how they deal with the changes in society, digitalization and their profession. With the symposium as a prelude, the Weltformat opens its doors on Saturday, 08.10.2022 at the Bourbaki in Lucerne.

Panel 1: Motion Design

This panel is about motion design as an essential part of today's design practice. It sets graphic elements in motion, often adding sound to them, creating new forms of visual storytelling. Due to the popularity of moving content in contemporary visual communication, the field of motion design has recently experienced a boom. This is spawning a broader field of experimentation and leading to new opportunities for the profession. In this way, this panel discusses the connection between motion design, creative coding, and artificial intelligence. At the same time, it highlights the potential for commissions in both the commercial and public sectors, and builds a bridge to the relationship between type and motion design.

Guets - 11am till 1pm

Panel 2: Moving On

This panel responds to the festival theme Never Not Moving with an expanded understanding of the principle of staying in motion. Design is constantly evolving, which for designers means constantly re-creating professional identity. The panel offers insights into three different types of practices that contain elements of motion design, but at the same time pick up on the development of new fields of activity, forms of work, and attitudes. The positions range from an exploration of augmented reality as an artistic tool, to the diverse professional and personal possibilities offered by 3D art and animation, to critical reflection and alternative publishing strategies in type design.

Guests - 2:15 till 4pm
