Spring: Icograda Design Week in Vilnius 2011

Venue: Vilnius Academy of Art

Spring represents the beginning of the cycle where ideas are planted and through a meticulous strategic design process they come to life and we can reap their fruits.

Through the theme of 'Spring', Icograda Design Week in Vilnius 2011 strives to explore design as a powerful process that transitions ideas into functional realities. Spring 2011 will be a great opportunity for designers, business leaders and government stakeholders to meet, discuss and explore design as a basis for development. Spring is a powerful tool, loaded with positive design energy waiting to be released. Spring forward with design.
