CREATIVE WAYS TO CREATE GRAPHICS FOR PRINT AND DIGITAL

The Workshop takes place
@Flachbau / Alte Kongresshalle

About the workshop

My workshop is designed to increase creativity in paper and digital formats.
We’ll use different artistic techniques, such as sculpture, stop motion... to improve our graphics and surprise our readers. We'll start with sketches for the print version using pencil and paper, later we'll sculpt a piece to create a real 3D model. Finally we are going to create a storyboard for the digital project to design a motion graphic.

SEMANTIC AND HIEROGLYPHIC CALLIGRAPHY FOR EASIER, SMOOTHER, AND EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
(in English // Saturday: 9 am – 2 pm)
The Workshop takes place
@Halle27, Hirschgartenallee 27,
80639 München
 

About the workshop

When a word is fixed through typography, or written characters, the word holds our every emotion: joy, anger, sorrow, pleasure. Usually the typefaces or these feelings, become refined or purified, leaving only the will or intention untouched. To put it another way, typography serves its function most truly when it stores and conveys information. However, this alone does not encompass the entirety of the written character’s function. When the lives and voices of humankind living together with nature are expressed, then communication becomes smoother and easier. In other words, people can disclose the invisible sound and to elucidate the making of letter forms in which sound and shapes are combined. More specifically, effective calligraphy can be combined with the design and penmanship, to let the sound be more audible or visible, and to show the weight, time, and space of writings. This workshop begins by raising this question.
First, we begin by understanding the expression of the character’s prototype and by understanding calligraphic writing, personifying the differences between Eastern and Western handwriting, to finally express emotions and invisible sounds using a brush. Next, after understanding the principles of creating the uncomplicated, scientific Korean letters, we express the meaning, sound, and form of Korean words such as KKOT(flower), CHUM(dance), and BARAM(wind), through calligraphy. By means of this workshop, we seek to incite serious thoughts to find ways of easier, smoother, and effective communication.
Through this workshop, designers can learn how to naturally sculpt the meaning, sound, and shape of the letters into fonts. It is meant to replenish the design and artistic value of alphabets through this approach of work, and to revitalize the idea of an easy, smooth, effective, and enjoyable communication. Today, letters are more than just recording or fixing speeches that fade away, but they are becoming objects that laugh, cry, dance and sing with us and with nature!

About Byung-In Kang

Byung-in Kang is a prominent calligrapher and visual artist in Seoul, Korea. His endless passion and dedication on Korean calligraphy ever since his middle school time. However, he majored in visual art and design at college and worked at a design company later, as an editing designer at a publishing company for about 20 years. The experiences at those design companies have helped him variously in coming up with the new designs in his calligraphic exploration. He has taught numerous art colleges/institutions including Hong-ik University where he earned his Masters degree.
Byung-in Kang has been adopting the creation principles of Hangul into his work philosophy and showing works that have wholly preserved our life and sound of harmonizing with nature. His calligraphy, which combines chirography with design, promotes the diversity and beauty of the Hangul font through a modern reinterpretation of convergence and tradition. In particular, he explains the creating principles of Hangul in a simple way through calligraphy and actively shows the solidity and imagery of the Hangul font through his own unique interpretation of Hangul as semantic pictography.

About the workshop

A magazine title turned out well displays the content of a title story in a condensed, dramatic, and captivating way. Ideally, everyone will understand it within less than a second. And will immediately be inspired by the visual idea and its execution – whether graphic, photographic, or illustrative.

Stefan Kiefer is a veteran cover and creative director at SPIEGEL magazine. In this intensive and practical workshop, he will provide insights on the essentials of a “good” cover. You will learn how to generate and realize fresh and new cover ideas for (customer and corporate) magazines.

Distinctive and successful covers of international magazines will be introduced and discussed to serve as a source of inspiration. Furthermore, you will gain access to the extensive wealth of experience your tutor has built up from estimated 10,000 cover layouts for the SPIEGEL.

The goal of this workshop is to understand and to learn how to apply the basic principles of a successful cover. In the course of the workshop day, several cover ideas for fictitious magazines will be developed, scribbled, and immediately created in teams, following an intensive routine. You will gain first-hand experience in practical, condensed creative cork under positive time pressure and with directly visible results.

Target group:
Art directors, graphic designers, illustrators, and picture editors. And professionals who are not involved in creative work on a daily basis, but who have to “get to the point” in pictures and texts for specific projects to best communicate their requests.

About Stefan Kiefer

Born on Sylt in 1957, father of four grown-up children. Until 1996, he worked as an illustrator and art director for numerous notable national and international publishers, agencies, and firms. He then was with the Spiegel for 18 years, 13 of which as cover and art director. In late 2014, he founded Hongkong Studios in the HafenCity Hamburg, turning a former storehouse of more than 400 square meters into a creative lab for graphic design, workshops, art, and photography.

ALL ABOUT PICTURES ON ONE DAY
(in German // Wednesday: 10 am - 7 pm)
The Workshop takes place
@Getty Images, Auenstraße 5, 80469 München

No special requirements needed – just be familiar with the common design software.

About the workshop

1 day, 3 instructors, 1 topic: pictures! By means of practical examples, the daily issues regarding technical and creative image processing in the print sector will be explained. The terminology will be clarified, the context will be illustrated, skills will be improved by means of practical exercises, tips and tricks will be exchanged, and questions will be answered. The workshop is subdivided into three parts based on each other. It is aimed at media designers, photographers, graphic all-rounders, occasional image editors, and beginners.
The prerequisite is good knowledge of the basic tools in Photoshop.

COLOR MANAGEMENT

The widespread mistake „I don’t use colour management,” leads to disappointments and unpleasant surprises in image output and print production – time and again. Erroneous software settings and a lack of knowledge regarding the use of colour profiles unsettle graphic artists, image editors, media designers, photographers, and agencies.
There’s no witchcraft required for handling colour settings and profiles. In the first part of our workshop – which will take around 90 minutes – we will teach you the basic knowledge required to understand colour management. Additional links and tips will provide you with the right tools to achieve ideal results within a very short time. Once you have understood it, it will be easy for you to communicate with experts at eye-level and to process your data in the right way.

Keywords: Basic knowledge colour management // Use of colour spaces and profiles // Tool box with useful links

PIMP MY PICTURE

Can I extrapolate a picture? How do I adjust the ideal gradation? How can I get more out of a picture? In the second part of the workshop, examples from everyday practice will show you how to best handle your pictures, how to optimize and finalize them by means of simple tools. We will show you tips and tricks you can easily adopt without worrying about destroying your picture.

Keywords: Simple routines to judge and improve a picture file // Optimization of picture qualities for perfect print results // Simple picture manipulation to apply the desired picture effect

VISUAL LANGUAGE

In the third part, we will deal with the creative picture effect and show, by means of current examples, how a consistent visual language can be achieved. Which image trends can be taken up and used for one’s own work? The range covers everything from colour spaces to compositions to storytelling. Helpful tips will be offered and experiences will be shared.

Keywords: Defining a visual language // Simple rules of picture editing // Current trends
