New Views 2: Conversations and Dialogues in Graphic Design

An international symposium defining graphic design for the future

9-11 July 2008
London College of Communication
University of the Arts London
United Kingdom

New Views 2 seeks to look in depth at the broader questions that graphic designers are facing today in terms of the profession and educational practices. At the same time, the symposium is meant to generate debate and to identify what new challenges might lay ahead for practitioners, academics, industry and the profession overall.

Themes to be addressed might include:

· Who are we? Problems of defining terminology: visual communication, communication design, graphic design, information environments

· the role of graphic design for the 'real world'

· graphic design and interdisciplinarity

· graphic design and research methods

· design writing/criticism and repositioning debates

· practice-led PhD research in the field of graphic design

· responsive curriculums and shifting paradigms

· research, innovation and new critical thinking

An accompanying exhibition of posters from designers, students and academics opens in London 9th - 21st July, 2008 and then travels to RMIT, Australia. A digital exhibition will also be presented via the conference website.

Deadline for Paper Abstracts: 1 February 2008
