Everything's Going to Be Alright


The phrase in Greek above translates to, "everything is going to be alright," and I optimistically agree. Designreport Greece is a design research project conducted by Anastasios Koupantsis and Alexandros Michalakopoulos, two University of Dusseldorf students. In early 2010, they spent several months in Greece observing the local design scene, the history of design in Greece, and also the current political and social changes happening within the country. This study materialized into a 74-minute documentary providing insight into the Greek approach to design. For those of you in Athens, it will be showing this Saturday, September 17th at the Onassis Cultural center. More information can be found on their Facebook page, or you can see the trailer here.
