Event description

Description

Join graphic designer Edda Salander-Jones* for a graphic design workshop to develop a series of communication tools (e.g. posters, flyers) for Art in the Parks: Kearsney Interpreted, an ambitious arts project in Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens.**

This one-day workshop will include an introduction to formal graphic design considerations, a segment on standards required for effective graphic-based communication (typography, image treatment, layout, colours, etc.) and the importance of letting go of all that if and when it is required or desired!

* Edda Salander-Jones is an artist and graphic designer. After working in publishing for 12 years in Berlin, she returned to the UK in 2005 where she explored different ways of bringing good design to the proverbial and real table – through the mediums of photography, text, graphics, events and cooking. She has been Dover Arts Developments's graphic designer since DAD began in 2006 aand is responsible for DAD's strong graphic branding.

** This project is being delivered by the Kearsney Parks project, a DDC project with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund Parks for People programme. This exciting project will explore the landscape designs, ecology, social and industrial heritage of the parks. It will leave a legacy of art, sculpture, poetry and artists' films that can be enjoyed for many years to come.
