The “Printemps de la Typo” at the Estienne school, the International Poster and Graphic Arts Festival in Chaumont, a season of Graphic Arts in Le Havre, Designers’ Days in Paris, lectures (Robin Kinross, Matthew Carter, Office abc, “Knowledge in Architecture and Graphic Design” in Valence, and Graphic Art Today at the Cneai), workshops (Processing Paris, the WaWaWorkshop), exhibitions (Vincent Perrottet, Philippe Millot, Etienne Robial)… Spring is on the way, a new season is about to begin, and with it, a whole series of events devoted to graphic design are lined up, showing how dynamic this sector is in France, with everyone wanting to share their methods and challenges. Schools are opening their doors at the end of the month and showing their students work – another opportunity to go and discover where teaching and curricula are headed right now. And there is plenty happening too beyond our borders: 100 Years of Swiss Graphic Design at the Zurich Museum, the Fernand Baudin Prize award ceremony in Brussels, and for anyone visiting New York in the next few months, there’s the “Millennium Magazines” exhibition at MoMA.
Come on, wake up! It’s time to get out of the house.
