Graphic Design Festival Scotland

Graphic Design Festival Scotland is a five day festival featuring workshops, competitions, talks, exhibitions and more running from 22-26 October. Based at The Whisky Bond, the inaugural festival seeks to provide a place for graphic design to become accessible to the public while creating a space for networking between designers, students and others working in the industry.

From 22 – 23 October, eight design studios will act as mentors while a group of participants work on a creative brief for the chance to win a placement with their mentor and the GDFS Best up-and-coming 2014 award.

There will be several one and two day workshops around creative processes, conceptual thinking, visual communication and professional practice with various design powerhouses including: 44 Flavours, STV Creative, Risotto, Recoat, Alexander Lis (Designbüro Frankfurt), OK-RM, Eike Konig-Hort and Freddy Taylor (Kesselskramer Outlet).

On 25 October, hear a series of 15 minute talks from designers and creatives throughout the evening while enjoying the musical stylings of So Weit So Gut, Tropical, Handpicked and The Dissolving Dancefloor. Catch curated music and live DJ sets at the Whisky Bond throughout the festival.

Finally don’t miss the International Poster Exhibition at 21 Stockwell Street from 25-27 October.
