Challenging design paths
Patras, Greece · 19 — 21 June 2019
In 2019 the 7th ICTVC travels to Patras, Greece. In collaboration with the Library & Information Centre of the University of Patras the conference will examine the value of design for visual communication and provoke participants to challenge current assumptions.
Since its inception in 2002, ICTVC has been established as one of the most prominent international events in its field. Supporting open, meaningful dialogue, the conference attracts people from many different countries and disciplines who share a passion for research, education, and practice in relation to typography and visual communication.
