The Itinerant IllustratorDecember 27, 2014
Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology
Interim Semester, 2014-2015
On the 18th and 19th December 2014, the 5th International Illustration Research event took place in Bengaluru, India. Hosted by Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, this symposium and the accompanying exhibition focused on the praxis of illustration in an expanded field, including histories of local/ regional illustrative practices and the traversing of diverse media platforms. The exhibition was the first of its kind in India and showcased a range of projects and practices by illustrators from several countries.
For this Interim Semester project, undergraduate and postgraduate students worked together in interdisciplinary teams that included space designers, product designers, visual communicators, design managers and text editors. Facilitated by Sandeep Ashwath, Alison Byrnes and me, the task was to conceptualise the space design and visual identity for the event as well as put together a cohesive, professional and engaging exhibition of contemporary illustration. The project began with an immersion into the various thematic strands of the symposium. The team then created proposals and work plans for developing the exhibition display style, space layout and improvements, murals, event identity, banners and signage, exhibition brochure, speaker programme, conference kit, pop-up shops, event promotion and documentation. Aside from these mandatory deliverables the students also developed personal projects that responded to the overarching themes of the symposium.
