Graphic Matters is an international biennial festival, which celebrates graphic design and how it impacts our daily lives. The seventh edition of the festival takes place from September 20 until October 27 at various locations around the city of Breda

Graphic Matters 2019

Formerly known as Graphic Design Festival Breda (GDFB), Graphic Matters sheds light on the skillful way in which graphic designers carve order out of chaos to provide an overview of complex matters. The goal of Graphic Matters is to explore current developments in graphic visual culture and share them in both artistic and professional ways. 

Serving as a platform for international designers, artists and tech developers, the festival hosts over 15.000 visitors and crosses paths with more than 75.000 passers-by through presenting work in both public and private spaces to emphasise the impact of visual culture. 

Through these confrontations and the associated presentations in galleries and other temporary locations, graphic designers and visual artists are able to engage the audience with a contextualised display of the latest in graphic culture and visualisation. 

Theme of Graphic Matters 2019

The theme of the 2019 Graphic Matters festival is "Information Superpower." Graphic designers represent a nexus who must integrate technology, social and cultural sensitivity into complex, easily understandable solutions. The event will focus on the role of design and the designer in developing solutions through sharing information and utilising feedback to constantly improve systems. 

Today, information is key for critical journalism, a sustainable world, balanced politics, personal health and privacy. This theme explores the impact of information design.
