Here in Ljubljana (Slovenia) autumn means cold, rain (and sometimes snow), beautiful colors and inspiration. A lot of events about design, theater, cinema are happening and the new light invites to see things as if it were the first time. Perhaps one of the most popular events is the Month of Design, the capital becomes a traveling museum, with exhibitions, pop-up stores, conferences, performances, parties…
Here more information about the event in the words of the organizers:
Month of Design is an annual festival of know-how and creativity in design. It offers platform for a discourse focused on exploring the role of design in creative industries, business, culture and social practices. The main aim of Month of Design is to increase the competitiveness of businesses and society, establish knowledge transfers between developed and less developed economies, and emphasise the strategic, economic and cultural advantages of design.
This unique month-long design event is held in and around the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana. This year it is dedicated to a specific topic of global relevance – Thinking the Future.
Fortunately or unfortunately, the brands are part of our life and, even more, are set in our brain in an almost alarming way. We are able to identify more logos than featured works of art and to sing more jingles than songs that have sold thousands of albums around the world. Advertising is almost universal, timeless and, in some cases, when that advertising gets old, it becomes “art” (see Coca-Cola or Pepsi vintage posters).
Don’t you believe it? Well let’s do a test, how many brands can you identify in the following pictures?
