A0 (ALSO Collective + Mason Studio) invites you to The Perimeter Series—a series of panel discussions on issues related to contemporary design practices, academia, and industry. 

This third and final panel of our 2014 Perimeter Series tackles a topic close to home—or distant depending on your vantage point. Design and National Identity investigates the interplay between design, geography, politics, economics, history, and how they shape—and are shaped by—national identity.

This event is hosted by the Design Exchange, and moderated by Shauna Levy. The panelists are:

+ Michael Prokopow, OCAD University
+ Vanessa Eckstein, Blok Design
+ Todd Falkowsky, Canadian Design Resource
+ Catherine Osborne, Azure Magazine

The Perimeter Series was developed by A0, the joint efforts of ALSO Collective and Mason Studio. The studios share philosophies of design, but originate from two distinct practices. ALSO occupies a space in digital media and graphic design, while Mason inhabits physical interior space. The PerimeterSeries was developed as an opportunity to share in the conversation between the studios to explore a shift in the boundaries of design. Come take part in our discussions!
