Two Pages project invites graphic designers and illustrators from around Europe to explore Porto’s visual language and urban culture. The participants will be asked to exchange information and experiences in relation to Porto and discuss the city’s visual structure, influences and identity. Based on the concept of Two Pages, this workshop will focus on visual interpretations and spontaneous mark making.
The workshop will be run by Two Pages team: Konstantinos Trichas (designer) and Dionysis Livanis (designer and visual artist).
The participation to the workshop is free but booking is essential.
Apart from your design materials (pens, tapes, sketchbook, etc), please bring with you an object that best represents Porto.
