Pivotal Moments in Graphic Design

In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Des Moines, Vol. 12), visual designer Rachel McClung traverses the history of graphic design. She goes back several thousand years to paint a mural-sized picture of design's evolution. She moves from ancient Egypt’s hieroglyphics, to the printing press and other turn of the century innovations, both in technology and creative thinking, and concludes with the most recent advances in the tech world today.

#3 in the SKY

This was good! And it all started with a magnificent concerto of the delicious trio: Limona Jam: Ammalia Podlaszewska + Daniele Agretti + Alex Osipenko. Taste it in a short glimpse! This was an allover dream come true evening! We had local musicians performing together for the first time, we landed on a spectacular venue on a roof top of our city, we reached the magic 10 presentations and our audience keeps on growing! Right after the sunset, we had Rubén Robledo Ibáñez showing us his reportage photos from the Gaza Stripe where he spent several weeks among befriended Palestinians. Geographically not afar, the next was Athina Stefani from Greece who involved us in her story about Ludwig Wittgenstein's house, told by the mean her own drawings authored throughout the nights before Friday: And then it happened: the Italian-Swedish team of laughter monsters (Sara Ferraioli + Carl Ydergård) stretched our cheeks to a high level of pain with their rythmic story on how Daniele, who happened to be the guitarrist at the same evening, made his career instead of playing football. A series of 20 photomontages made us laugh through the whole 400 seconds: This was not all! Sara couldn't stop just at one presentation.. An involving walk through the streets of Naples followed, filled with street art: After a smooth beer brake extended through the stunning views over Weimar: we took off again. This time Rika Tarigan from Indonesia engaged us with her designs of modern applications of the batik textile technique. Filtered through the cultural background of Indonesian fariy tales we were covered up with 20 splendid and very colorful images: Right after some colder recollections of the last winter arrived to us from Sankt Petersburg through Lithuania in the person of the delightful pianist Simona Zajancauskaite. The first musician to present images on PKN in Weimar! Stark congratulations for the courage! We were all touched by the transcontinental message instilled in the 20 slides under the title tandem, nothing is black and white anymore. The message pointing towards a possible European-Russian friendship was carried on by the presentation by Iman Hegazy (Egipt) and Tatiana Reshetnikova - the Urban Sketchers Weimar. In a series of speedy sketches we discovered some beautiful locations from Russia, Egypt and Weimar. Thank you and good luck with engaging more sketchers in your group!  The reportages from cold Russia made a perfect ground for the next story to come - this time by the PKN city-organizer himself. Gall Podlaszewski uncovered his winterly "cultural production": the Weimar Winter Bad - a series of Monday baths in the river of Ilm taking place under winter atmospheric conditions. The involvement of some other participants proved that the idea of swimming in the winter is not Bad at all! Here, the end of first season (photo by Simona Zajancauskaite who got up on a cold morning very early just to take this photo. What a brave daughter!): Right afterwards we had another swap of functions - now Tereza Spindlerova - the second city-organizer came out of her mixxer pult and took over the mic to tell us the development of her Spanish blog - a poetic journey supported by 20 almost abstract urban images: The splendid series of 10 presentations was closed, or rather opened up by the enigmatic Mr. Grüter, who did it just as we like - decided to present just at the same evening, bringing his presentation on a usb stick. Here Mr. Grüter seizes the audience with his magic pencil: Thank you all for the great fun we had that night!!
