Join AIGA members from across the country for an exclusive immersion in the exciting Dutch design scene with AIGA @ DDW.16!
The Netherlands boasts a legendary history of graphic design, with creative game changers a part of the tradition as far back as the Renaissance with its infamous boundary-pushing Dutch Masters. In more recent years the country has cultivated movements such as de Stijl and CoBrA, along with masterminds of design from Piet Mondrian and Gerritt Rietveld to Maarten Baas and Marcel Wanders.
We’ll learn about this proud tradition, firsthand, with local experts. The trip begins with three days in Amsterdam, visiting its legendary museums and cutting edge design quarters. Then we’ll travel to Eindhoven, to immerse ourselves in Dutch Design Week (DDW), the largest design event in Northern Europe. The work and ideas of over 2400 designers will be presented to more than 250,000 visitors from around the globe. In at least eighty locations across Eindhoven, DDW organizes and facilitates exhibitions, lectures, prize ceremonies, networking events, debates and festivities. And DDW 2016 is particularly special because this year marks the 15th edition of the festival.
This exclusive tour for AIGA members is your opportunity to connect with peers from across the country, to get creative, explore and have fun, all in the name of design.
