Design for Communism

Design for Communism

The ICOGRADA is hosting their International Conference just 90 miles off the southern tip of Florida. There is currently a United States trade and travel embargo against the Communist Dictatorship. Do you think ICOGRADA is sending the US a message, or are they merely fond of Cuban cigars?
Havana, Cuba October 20–26
The Icograda World Congress will celebrate fresh perspectives on the intersection of contemporary culture and the evolution of design. The congress will address the influence culture has on design, how design shapes urban identities and the opportunity to use design as an economic development tool. Havana will become the international capital of graphic and communication design in October—a place for designers, consultants, design managers, buyers of design services, educators and students to gather, share and learn. “
