Designing the face of the EU

An interinstitutional event and training in the framework of the Interinstitutional Digital Publishing Committee

The Publications Office would like to invite you to the event `Designing the face of the EU’ organised under auspices of the Interinstitutional Digital Publishing Committee (IDPC). Given the importance of visual aspects of publishing, we decided to enlarge the usual scope of the IDPC plenary meeting invitees. We imagined gathering graphic designers from all Institutions together with decision-makers who shape communication strategies, participate in the creative process, judge it and have a say on its implementation. We also count on the presence of several fellow digital publishing practitioners from other international organisations.

Your re welcome to enrol using relevant forms in the “Registration” tab. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the number of places in both afternoon workshops is limited – that`s the condition of a truly interactive formula. However, the morning plenary session and connecting the dots part are open to all willing participants. We hope that they will bring together all colleagues across the Institutions who want to make a difference in visual aspects of the EU`s digital appearance, make it more attractive, more pertinent and closer to our audiences.

WE COUNT ON YOUR ACTIVE PARTICIPATION !
