Graphics Project 2018

The Graphics Project is an annual series of lectures, discussions, and portfolio reviews exploring the role of graphic design within the field of architecture.

Over two weekends, we examine various methods of visual communication used to convey concepts to both specialist and general audiences.

These events aim to help students build a successful graduation portfolio while simultaneously unpacking the topics, tools, and trends of contemporary graphic design.
