Thessaloniki, a special case in contemporary Greek visual communication

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Thessaloniki Graphic Design, 1980-2009, a compilation, might be a book that originated from Thessaloniki, it is however addressed to the whole world as it is about cultural heritage that belongs to everyone. Its basic virtue is honesty; it is not a patchwork of supposed to be awarded works, nor is it a DIY album for young (or old and exhausted) designers, nor a self-deceiving vehicle of this or that ‘design star’ like much of the material to be found on the shelves of hypermarkets nowadays dressed in a bookshop costume. It is about a unique attempt to visually narrate a three decade course of Thessaloniki graphic design.
