EDA AT THE YUGOSLAV DRAMA THEATRE

The BDW 2013 conference ended with a grand ceremony: The prestige European Design Award took place at the iconic Yugoslav Drama Theatre at 21:00 of the last festival day, showcasing yet another time the best of the European communication designers for 2012, in front of a sold out design-mad public from all over the world. Before that, five selected members of the European Design Leaders, one-of-a-kind professional club of Europe’s leading communication design studios and agencies, gave their lectures at the special session about graphic design at BDW’s conference.

This year the European Design Awards received a record number of submissions. A difficult task for any, but the ED-Awards jury, made up of representatives from 15 design magazines (coming from 15 different countries), is the most competent of its kind. Their decisions were officially revealed at the Award Ceremony.

The Belgrade Design Week was the best design conference I have ever enjoyed – the specific spirit of the city in a kind of in between status, the rough tension which can still be felt ten years after the bombs, the pride and the looking for new orientation especially in the young generation – all this is giving the BDW a special flair far away from the current events of the global design circus. In addition the enthusiastic organizational team trying hardly but unsuccessfully to keep the program along the schedules, the informal exchange between the international speakers, the loss of any discipline, the parties on the river … what ever and how ever the interrelations between these aspects are working – it makes the BDW an unique, likeable, inspiring and productive event, I will never forget.
