On saturday May 25th 2014, LYNfabrikken curated and organised a one-day seminar about scandinavien graphid design. We called it: Nordic Action – A seminar about crazy, clever and curious graphic design from Scandinavia
We invited some of our favourite graphic designers to Aarhus. To present their work, and maybe answer some of our thought and questions about Nordic Design. Does it make sense to talk about nordic design? If yes, what is it? How does it look? Is there even such a thing as a danish style, swedish style, and so on, or how does the designers feel about these questions.
We had a sold out audience, and enjoyed an amazing day at LYNfabrikken. With clever and thoughtful talks, and nice and cozy breaks.
The nice young people from I Do Art made a little film. And we also recorded most of the presentations, and you can watch it all here.
