2011 is the ninth year of Semi-Permanent conferences held all over the world. Simon Velvin, founder and worldwide director of Semi-Permanent says of Semi-Permanent “It’s a raw, edgy conference, People share their work, their lives, their passions, what pisses them off”.
Semi-Permanent was developed to unite and provide the international design community with a creative experience. It incorporates all design disciplines and is more like a party then a conference.
The aim of Semi-Permanent is to gather creative people to share ideas, experiences and learn through local and international experts.
It’s a celebration of all things design including Graphic Design, Film, Art, Illustration, Web Design, Photography, Visual Effects, Animation, Graffiti, Motion Graphics, Stop Motion and many more.
The conference consists of speakers, exhibitions, competitions, workshops and parties. Conference speakers are at the top of their profession and speak about their experiences and knowledge. 2011 speakers consist of Production Designers, Artists, Musicians, Graphic Designers, Typography experts and more.
To date Semi-Permanent has hosted 26 events in 9 cities, covering 5 countries, with 164 speakers and over 42,000 attendees.
Semi-Permanent is a great source of “inspiration” and speaks directly to the individual. Discounted student prices enable the next generation of creative designers to be part of the conversation.
