There will be several simultaneous workshops.
All participants have to bring their own laptops.
Registration opened soon
May 26th – May 28th
Conversation between North and South
Communicate ideas – social design – visual type.
The aim is visualization of the given topic in terms of communication, social activity and solidarity, by any means of information (poster, basic page of a site, intro, audio-visual, etc.)
Students may "design" the certain meaning of the message using types, photos, graphic designs and multimedia.
Schedule: Open lecture and workshop instructions on the 26th of May
Topic «Multimedia project»
lecture / presentation – overview of the work at school (1st-7th semester)
the program’s results, creativity and activity in design of Technological Educational Institute of Athens
May 28th – May 29th
Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technologies
Augmented Reality and Unity 3D
Augmented Reality technology allows merging a view of real-world environment with computer generated elements. It could be 2D and 3D objects, audio or video files, textual information, avatars, interactive interfaces etc. The user can interact with these digital virtual objects superimposed upon or seamlessly mixed with the real world. AR allows real and virtual elements to coexist at the same time and space and gives promising posibilities to create interesting visual communication and art projects.
During workshops students will be able to build AR scenes using automated editor - Metaio Creator (Windows/MacOS) and interact with them on mobile Junaio AR browser (Android/iOS). Thanks to easy configuration and simple workflow no advanced programming skills are required. Students will use different content like images, text, videos/animations with alpha channel, animated 3D models, sounds, buttons etc. to enrich surrounding world and create unique interactive experience. Various tracking technologies based on images, objects and environment will be introduced and tested. In addition students will learn how to integrate AR scenes with Unity3D (Windows/MacOS) game engine.
Final works will be presented during public exhibition as posters and working interactive projects available for everybody with Junaio AR browser application installed on mobile devices.
After completing the workshop, students should acquire the following competences:
Knowledge of using AR technology, including its pros and cons.
Understanding technical requirements and available solutions for building AR projects.
Preparing one’s own AR project for mobile devices using automated AR editor.
Documenting final work in the form of a poster with the description of results.

NODEBox – sound and image
The first day of the workshop will be a course on NodeBox3. This course will cover the basics of NodeBox3. It will explain the Node interface, how to build networks with nodes, how to deal with variance (subnetworks) and how to deal with data, specifically musical data in this workshop.
Beforehand students can make their own music files (mp3 format) to avoid publishing issues later on.
Life music through microphone capture is possible as well.
The second day students will make proposals and these will be discussed, studied, and hopefully solved by the third day: presentation at 14:00.
On sunday during the Motyf conference all of these results will be shown.

Processing Program in visualization – basic exercises
Processing is an easy to use programming language especially developed for visual designers. It allows to quickly create images, animations or interactive graphics through code. In this workshop we will give an introduction to Processing and then explore some basic possibilities of how you can deal with color, shape, typography and sound in this dynamic and interactive context.

General Outline Stop Motion Typography
Understanding and exposing the conceptual potential of motion graphics over images of typographic forms made by daily objects.
Aim – General Outline
Expressing the interaction between typography and motion graphics from different (analog and digital) applications. Revaluating the daily objects by giving them typographic forms and faces. Building a bridge between 3 dimensional objects, typography and content.

Dynamic text exercises in After Effects
Aim – General Outline
Whether it is film, TV or the internet, whether it is on projection screens or smartphones
– we encounter animated typography more and more frequently and on all different
kinds of platforms. In this workshop, poetic texts in type, audio and graphics will come to live. The plan is to start exploring on the level of text and spoken text and by interpreting a poem. In the studio, texts can be recorded, sung or freely interpreted. Handmade sounds may accentuate the animation. Simultaneously, the actual experiment begins with defining the visualitites and running first animation tests. The workshop is accompanied by technical introductions to Audition, Illustrator and After Effects (CS6). The borders of readability are to be explored and new ways of possible interpretations (meta level) are to be implemented.
Audition, Illustrator, After Effects (CS 6)
20 Students, working in Teams ( 2 – 3 students)
Bachelor year one plus and Master; Level: basic knowledge
Expected results (not limited to the number of students concerned):
1. Animated 2D sequences with moving images and sound in group work
2. Exploring, determining and developing of individual design concepts
3. Discussing type in motion (designing varied motion parameters),
audio (designing speech and sound) and overall aesthetics.
4. Discussing readability in moving image media.
