2co everyday

June the 8th 2018

In collaboration with our friends at Liverpool John Moores University

our first 2COeveryday will take place on:
Friday, June the 8th

from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Liverpool School Of Art & Design
John Lennon Art and Design Building - 2 Duckinfield Street
Liverpool - L3 5RD - United Kingdom


For several years the Graphic Design and Illustration course at LJMU has been an educational partner for the 2CO Communicating Complexity International Design Conference.

This June we asked John Moores University to host the first of these “seminar gathering” in Liverpool. It will involve a series of short presentations from academics and professionals and lots of opportunity for discussion between both sides about the challenges of communicating complexity through design.

School of Design, University of Sassari, Italy

As part of a larger dissemination project, over the last year we have been working on making the contents an ancient XIV manuscript – the medieval statutes ‘’Statuti’ of the city of Sassari – more accessible to the general public.

The project involves exploring animation as a way to inform, entertain, excite, combining historical facts with storytelling
