Design Walk Festival ( finally more pics)

13 Graphic Design Studios resolve 13 contradictory elements within the creative process.The walk takes place in the vibrant area of the city next to the Acropolis, leading the visitor between cult shops and hip bars to discover works by award-winning graphic designers, in one of the most inspiring neighbourhoods in Europe, where ancient Greece, West, East,yesterday and tomorrow meet. For the 2010 walk, double decker , the London-based curatingagency, is challenging 13 Graphic Design Studios to create a piece of work inspired by thecontradictions / oppositions with which every designer has to deal, and which arise from fundamental questions in design methodology.

The resulting exhibition, POLES APART, will give a unique visual insight into the creative process – as well as its curious contradictions.
