Since its inception, Graphika Manila has culled over 10,000 design professionals and students from different parts of the country and the globe for a one-day, multimedia and graphic design festivity. Touted as the most influential event of its kind in the country, Graphika Manila is as solid as ever as it celebrates its 7th year anniversary.
Attendees and fixtures will expect nothing less than an exciting lineup of speakers. The event will play host to the likes of New York-based motion graphics giant Psyop and one-man production house GMUNK (notable for his hologram animations for Disney’s sci-fi film TRON: Legacy). Also part of this year’s roster is Sudeep Gohil, CEO of advertising firm Droga5, and Filipino American Creative Director Jerome Austria of Wieden+Kennedy. Capping off the list are Florida-based artist Joshua Smith a.k.a. Hydro74, local artist/illustrator JP Cuison, and Manila-based creative collective Create.ph. Be sure to check out the event as it is scheduled to take place at SMX Convention Center in Mall of Asia on August 11, 2012.—ROLLIE POLLIE OLLIE
