session / conversations with graphic designer ARTHUR HERRMAN
Micamera, Milan, January 31st-February 1st
The eye does not see things but images of things that mean other things – Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
Discover the opportunities of interdisciplinary collaboration. We will see how photographs are the means, the instrument to tell your story.
With practical and hands-on tips along the way, we will research different solutions for the presentation of your work: book, exhibition, web documentary and even transmedia.
Many photographers are conservative when it comes to present their projects, not realizing that their work isn’t their actual work until it is presented. On the other hand, many designers have difficulties in determining their role, and deciding when they need to get out of the way or when they should just stand in the way.
During the workshop, designers and photographers will actively explore and work in a collaborative effort on the photographers’ projects. Designers are also welcome to bring somebody else’s work.
The course also includes an individual evaluation of the students’ portfolios.
Arthur Herrman will run a 2-day session open to photographers and designers who wish to explore the possibilities in conceptualizing, presenting and disseminating their visual stories.
Arthur Herrman (born 1969) is running Dutch design office Kummer & Herrman with creative partner Jeroen Kummer since 1998. More than an office for design or communication they are thinkers and creators with a strong editorial involvement. They believe that design should do much more than just look good.
Most importantly it should enhance the stories which need to be told, fueling them with the right energy to move, surprise or inform. Originating from a background in print, Kummer & Herrman developed into a multi-disciplinary office with expertise in print, spatial as well as interactive design. Over the years they gathered a lot of international acclaim for their work, quite often in the field of (documentary) photography. Recently, they we’re shortlisted for the Prix Italia Web Competition in the category Best Digital Storytelling with their transmedia documentary Love Radio, and they won the Dutch Design Awards 2014 with all projects they’ve realized for The Sochi Project. Arthur is lecturing at HKU Media, University of the Arts Utrecht.
