European Design Festival takes place annually in a different European city. From June 6 to 9, Warsaw will host the event, becoming for a couple of days the European capital of graphic design. As a part of the festival the EDA award gala will be held, as well as Element Talks conference and many accompanying events.

The festival is divided into several events with novelties and evergreens: graphic tours to discover the main graphic design studios in Warsaw; film screenings on this topic including Helvetica, the independent documentary made in 2007 by Gary Hustwit to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the typeface’s introduction; a series of breakfasts offered by Bar Studio and dj nights at Cafè Kulturalna to get in touch with the most experienced graphic designers in an informal context.

There will be also workshops on calligraphy, lettering, collage, creative coding, animation and design safari. The annual Element Talks Conference hosted by the multifunctional and post-industrial complex Minska 65, and finally two competitions with a final gala evening, the European Design Awards and the Polish Graphic Design Awards, both aimed at emerging and brand new talents.
