Cagdi Events

 

During 2018 CAGDI will organise three specialized two-day events specializing on Graphic Design and Illustration matters, a discussion on pricing & invoicing and the Annual General Assembly.

 


 

GRIP (GRaphic Design / Illustration / Print)
Three thematic 2day events

 

The program
Through a series of thematic two-day events consisting of lectures, technical workshops and presentations, CAGDI aims to educate and familiarize graphic design and illustration professionals in theoretical and technical issues of the industry.

The aim of these events is to create an active network of professionals that will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge on practical and theoretical matters and create an appropriate, fertile background for collaborations with each other as well as with organizations. The events are also addressed to students and practising professionals with less experience in the field.

The value of our work
(June 2018)

A fundamental issue of CAGDI, with a plethora of categories for discussion on pricing, invoicing, copyrights, competitions and other concerns that are encountered in the creative process. An open discussion that encourages the exchange of ideas between creative professionals.

 


 

Annual General Meeting 2018
(September 2018)

The CAGDI Board of Directors invites every year its registered members to the Annual General Assembly. In our second Annual General Assembly, decisions will be taken by voting on matters relating to CAGDI issues, so the attendance of all registered members is required as well as an active participation in their presence for a healthy and dynamic CAGDI.
