Graphic Days® Vol.7


September 17 - October 2, 2022


The Graphic Days® festival is an event dedicated to Italian and international visual design which, since 2016, has involved artists, professionals and the most relevant studios on the international scene.

The theme

In 2022 the festival changed format and adopted a widespread approach in the city through a program of initiatives structured in 6 main locations and articulated over time. The main theme of all the initiatives is the Kids theme.

From the world of publishing, to the production of games to the development of dedicated programs by cultural institutions, children in fact offer a field of constant experimentation for visual design and social design. The festival will be an opportunity to highlight the point of view of children / teenagers: the use of play as a key to interpreting the world, the imagination and the ability to see beyond (obstacles, appearance or evidence), the importance of attention for the future, through three interpretations:

Design For Kids: examples of visual design applied to the creation of products and services for children.

Design Like Kids: experiences that highlight the power of a design culture based on a playful attitude and an immediate, colorful and fun visual language.

Design With Kids: laboratory activities and initiatives carried out together with children.
