Call it the Design Assembly Christmas party, the end of year wrap party or just an excuse for a drink with your fellow designers. Whatever you call it, you’re invited.
When: Wednesday November 17
Where: The Lounge Bar, Galatos
17 Galatos Street, Auckland St
Partake in a yuletide drink or two and while you’re at it, enjoy the sounds of DJ Peter Mac and the visual projects of Renee Lam and Ralph Matthews.
Peter Mac – DJ Peter DJs on BaseFM, KiwiFM & in bars and clubs around the city. He also makes music as Dub Asylum (dubasylum.co.nz). He blogs, tweets, and designs. Sometimes all at once.
Renee Lam – Graphic Designer Project: A basic Truth ‘A basic Truth’ explores the communication of a quote taken from The Bhagavad Gita that can be seen to represent at the very least one designer’s journey, if not an issue every human being will encounter in life. Worms were chosen as the vehicle for the text due to their humble nature. In contrast the light emanating from the laser cuts bestow the quote with an almost sacred and ethereal feel paying homage to both its origin and profundity of its message.
Ralph Matthews – Moving Image Designer Ralph’s project will explore a series of visual idioms through moving image.
