Graphic Design Principles

The Institute of Research & Improvement in Social Sciences (IRISS) is in charge of the implementation of Art Always Applies Project which aims to provide knowledge and awareness of basic art design principles to leaders in the community, who might not normally be associated with the sphere of art and design. Establishing art and design in disparate sectors of everyone’s everyday life, will enable to provide a critical fresh take that leads to success.

Our mission is to target the right members of the community to become involved in the project, guiding the participants in their application and providing the art design principles training, which is confirmed for 10th to 13th October 2016. The training will be provided by Francesco Zagami, a Visual and IU designer based in Milan, and an experienced marketing and branding professional with a flair for visually appealing design. Mr. Zagami will give participants the opportunity to involve the art of each participants’ organization, as a developed and innovative approach and to develop new skills to meet a number of challenges in their fields.

The implementation of the project will have 5 key stages: starting with the awareness raising aspect which involves targeting the right participants on social media, targeting applicants from the social sciences, policy, economics backgrounds closer to the principles of art sectors. Then, the application and participant selection, in fact we need to restrict the number of participants to approximately 15 persons, hence we highlight the importance of the motivation of candidates and the strong sense of what the training would bring about and help them in their work or study. The wrap-up and reporting will enable us to analyse and discover the participant’s feedback after the training and the provision of the training in their environments. And finally the follow up, in order to setup new courses and workshops on the same theme.
