Three events of particular interest in visual communication and design are scheduled for this October, focusing on Nicosia. The first is the hosting of Ink Project.Exhibition for the first time in Cyprus. This is an initiative of Corn Studio, which combines graphic design and illustration with other applied arts or trends of nowadays, and is a poster exhibition executed by designers and creative design companies inspired by the relevant themes. Travellink is the 5th consecutive exhibition of the project, after Swink, Dressink, Shakink and Filmink, which combined design with swing / jazz culture, fashion, cocktails and cinema respectively.
Travellink comes from the composition of the words Travel and Ink and is a call for designers to capture their ideas through modern “digital ink” in relation to the subject. This project was created to unite designers from around the world who share the same passion, graphic design and poster design in particular. On the occasion of the Travellink theme, the collaboration of the ΙΝΚ Project.Exhibition with Graphic Stories Cyprus occurred, which will host the exhibition in Cyprus, adding twenty posters of designers from Cyprus and abroad. The purpose of Ink Projects is to promote the concepts of graphic design and illustration to the general public that may not be aware of their meaning. For this reason it has the form of an open party-event.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Saturday, October 21, 2017, at 20:00, at Aigaia School of Art and Design, located at 81 Ayion Omoloyton Ave in Nicosia, while the works of the creators will remain available in the exhibition until the end of the month.

In these meetings new and old members meet, analyze creative strategies, look at their portfolio, connect and socialise.
