Aggeliki tell us about her poster: “I created this poster for the 2022 VIDAK International Winter Invitational Exhibition & Conference: D-space. My perception on the theme is that the infinite possibilities of design in the digital era can be symbolized by the vastness of space. Just as the universe expands endlessly, so too do the creative possibilities. From virtual reality to artificial intelligence, the future of design is limitless. The central idea is that design in the digital era has limitless potential, and that this potential is symbolized by the vastness of space. By linking the concept of design to the idea of space, the poster suggests that design is something that can expand and evolve infinitely, just as space does.
From a second point of view, I wanted to emphasize on the idea of limitless potential by directly comparing the expansion of the universe to that of digital design. By making this comparison, the poster reinforces the idea that the possibilities of design are infinite and constantly expanding. Finally, I wanted to convey that the future of design will be characterized by innovation and cutting-edge technology, emphasizing on the idea that there are no boundaries or constraints to what designers can create in the digital era. Overall, my poster is intended to convey a sense of optimism and excitement about the future of design in the digital era. By linking design to the concept of space and emphasizing its potential for expansion and innovation, the poster suggests that there are endless possibilities for creative expression and problem-solving in the world of digital design”.
