Berbagi Perspektif adalah bentuk pengenalan DGI Press sebagai divisi penerbitan lembaga kolaboratif Desain Grafis Indonesia (DGI) kepada umum dan khususnya desainer grafis. Oleh karena itu, sesi-sesi acara akan spesifik mengupas buku terbitan perdana DGI Press berjudul “Perspektif: 19 Desainer Grafis Muda Indonesia” dari segi penerbitan, produksi, dan wacana yang mewarnai isinya. Acara ini mengundang pakar penerbitan dan produksi, dan desainer grafis muda yang sedang naik daun. Selain itu, acara ini juga akan melakukan penayangan perdana film dokumenter “Apa itu Desain Grafis” yang mencatat makna profesi, industri, dan ilmu desain grafis dari 6 tokoh senior desain grafis Indonesia.

Acara ini adalah wujud pelaksanaan misi DGI yaitu “membimbing pemahaman di antara desainer grafis Indonesia dan persimpangannya dalam seni, desain, kebudayaan, dan masyarakat”. Dalam perjalanan 7 tahunnya, DGI berkomitmen untuk membentuk “ruang belajar” kolaboratif agar pencatatan, pengoleksian, dan pengarsipan perkembangan desain grafis Indonesia terwujud.

Shit Happens

Save your time, save your energy. Because no matter what achievements you’ve made, in the end, the question you have to answer is, “how much do you make?”

We Surf The Internet, We Swim in Magazines

Can’t agree more.

-
The internet is exhilarating. Magazines are enveloping. The internet grabs you. Magazine embrace you. The internet is impulsive. Magazines are immersive. And both media are growing.

Barely noticed amidst the thunderous internet clamor is the simple fact that magazine readership has risen over the past five years. Even in the age of the internet, even among the groups one would assume are most singularly hooked on digital media, the appeal of magazines is growing.

Think of it this way: during the 12-year life of Google, magazine readership actually increased 11 percent.

What it proves, once again, is that a new medium doesn’t necessarily displace an existing one. Just as movies didn’t kill radio. Just as TV didn’t kill movies. An established medium can continue to flourish so long as it continues to offer a unique experience. And, as reader loyalty and growth demonstrate, magazines do.

Which is why people aren’t giving up swimming, just because they also enjoy surfing.
