Cowbird 2013

A symposium over two days organised by Norwich University of the Arts that will explore the relationship between print and digital, and the coexistence of media in a wider sense; how they combine, and how they provide unique opportunities.

As the design industry embraces dramatic changes in technology, the Cowbird Symposium will look at graphic design as an output, a practice and a profession, exploring the relationships between print and screen-based communication. Guest speakers, all leading thinkers and practitioners themselves, will be invited to comment on the future of the distributed text – the book, magazine, newspaper and poster, as well as the challenge and opportunity afforded by new technologies, tablets, e-readers, smart phones, augmented reality, social media, digital displays, and new practices, crowdsourcing, coding, data sharing, and social reading.

How will the future objects and methods of graphic design and the industries it serves be reconfigured?
