UD18

In 2018, the Meeting on PhD Design Research in Design returns to the University of Aveiro for its 7th edition, which will take place on the 14th and 15th of June, at the Complex for Communication and Images Sciences (Department of Communication and Art, nº21).

This international conference, promoted and organized by students of the PhD Design Program at UA/UP (University of Aveiro/University of Porto), invites doctoral students, recent-graduates, researchers, teachers and professional from the field of design, or other adjacent areas, to share their investigations, following an anonymous submission and a blind peer-reviewed process of evaluation of their articles. Students front different cycles of studies (high-school, bachelors, masters, post-doc…) as well as academic and non-academic audiences are also welcome to attended.

This year’s edition will reflect upon the (in)visibility of design. Nowadays, the artifacts that mediate our relationship with the world, where part of our lives and memories are kept, are becoming increasingly more compact and efficient, sometimes even disappearing and transferring to the cloud.

 

How do we deal with the dematerialization and suppression of the senses that are inherent to the physicality of things? More and more often the role of design is to give form and function to immaterial objects, designing the interaction between Man and the digital devices upon which his life has become so intrinsically dependent.

At UD18, we will seek to discover and understand the new challanges imposed to the practice and the disciple of Design: benefits and dangers of the technological revolution on mankind (cognitive, social and interpersonal levels) and planet Earth; new production methods and technologies; emerging areas and (in)visible tangencies with other disciplines; territories, cultures and histories that have been forgotten or remain hidden; the erosion of authorship through the widespread, at times even ‘promiscuous’, dissemination of texts, images and intellectual content all over the internet and social media; the role of the researcher and the (in)visibility of investigations inside and outside the academic world; this represent just a few clues about the themes that this call for papers aims to pursue.

Keynote speakers

Manuel Estrada

 

Manuel Estrada created with five colleagues the innovative collective Sidecar in the early 80's, changing his original training in architecture by design and advertising.

He founded his own atelier, Estrada Design, in 1989, conciliating professional practice with the chairmanship of important design organizations: the Ibero-American Design Biennial (bid), the Madrid Designer's Association (di_mad) and the Higher Council for Education of Arts of the Spanish Government.

The studio has worked for clients such as the Cervantes Awards, Alianza Editorial, Fundión Repsol and the El País, designing several book covers for that newspaper.

He has also participated in several conferences and held workshops in several countries.

In 2017, he was awarded the National Design Prize by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness of the Spanish Government. 

 

Nuno Gusmão

 

Nuno Gusmão is a founding partner of the P-06 Atelier. Created in 2006, the studio is responsible for several projects of high projection and recognition at national and international level.

They conciliate the communication design with the architecture, museography, signage and systems of orientation, simultaneously summoning the collaboration of diverse specialists.

Museum of Oriente (Lisbon), the City of Football (Oeiras), the Museum of Megalithism (Mora), the Theater and Auditorium of Poitiers (France) are some of the atelier's latest projects, widely published in specialized publications of design and architecture.

The studio has been awarded several national (APOM, Sena da Silva trophy - National Design Awards) and international recognitions (Red Dot, D&AD, AIGA European Design Awards).

 

Kuno Prey

Kuno Prey’s natural curiosity led him to experiment with the use of new materials and technologies.

He made a name for himself as design consultant for numerous international companies (such as Alessi, NAVA Milano, Klein & More and Rexite), designing highly successful products that won many international awards.

In 2002 he returned to Italy to found the new Faculty of Design and Art at the Free University of Bolzano/Bozen that, guided by him as dean until 2010, is now rated among the most renown schools in Europe. Starting from October 2010 he has resumed teaching full time and doing research in product design. More info:

Illustration, as a dominant practice, is nowadays the privileged medium to communicate health to children.

 

Talk

Luís Adriano Oliveira
