//Talk// Thursday at 7:30pm (Feb. 6th)

Eps51 (Sascha Thoma and Ben Wittner) will give an overview of their scope of work over the past 5 years with a focus on typography and bilingual design (English and Arabic). Furthermore they will virtually guide the audience through the exhibition RIGHT-TO-LEFT, which took place in Berlin in December 2012 displaying over 160 bilingual posters by designers and artists from the Arab World and Iran.

//Workshop// Sun/Mon/Tue (Feb. 9-11th)

Topic: Bilingual Poster Design
The poster belongs to the most essential media announcing issues or promoting events – posters are meant to be displayed and seen – they are created to inform and communicate. To fulfill their purpose of spreading information in nowadays globalised world, posters increasingly need to be set-up with more than just one language – sooner or later every designer and artist will be faced with the task to design a bilingual poster. A particularly hard challenge is working with two scripts with opposed writing and reading directions.

In their 3-day-workshop Sascha Thoma and Ben Wittner will give an insight into bilingual poster design (Arabic and English). Stay tuned for more information on how to sign up!
