Design Dialogues #28: A Book on the Head


17/06/2017, 19:00 - 20:00

Location: Park fra Grge Martića

Organization: DCZ

Among all the wonders of the 21st century, educating yourself with good old (and new) books is still the best way, and can be fun as well. Ever since the times of Johannes Guttenberg, if not even earlier, it helps if your book has a good design, and designer books are one of the most challenging and esteemed media: the better the design of the book, the greater the master who made it.
Even though books haven’t radically changed their form even today in the time of Kindles and tablets, many breakthrough moments happened within their pages, and designers have travelled a long way from mandatory legibility to the complete destruction of text, and back again. Some of the best publishing houses in Croatia, the smaller ones more often than the bigger ones, stand out with their unique visual identities and book designs that attract their readership. We will be talking to three expert and experienced designers about all the secrets of their craft. Lovers of good books (and design) shouldn’t miss this event!

GUESTS: Damir Bralić, Lana Grahek and Igor Kuduz

MODERATOR: Bojan Krištofić
