Graphika Manila 2014: Conference on Creativity

Wazzup Pilipinas!

If you are creative at heart, passionate about design or are one who appreciates the arts, you are very welcome to attend Graphika Manila.

Graphika Manila is the premiere multimedia and graphic design event in the Philippines. Since 2006, Graphika Manila has attracted over 16,000 design students and professionals and is now hailed as one of the most influential multimedia events in the country. It is the biggest creative gathering in the Philippines, with close to 3000 attendees every year.

As it celebrates its ninth year running, Graphika Manila once more brings together Manila’s creative minds to listen to inspiring stories and celebrate the works of the best multimedia and graphic designers from the Philippines and from around the globe.

Simply put it as a creative symposium with speakers from different fields of the creative arts. The conference focuses on the creative side of design rather than technology.

The event features 6 amazing speakers from around the world! Designers Jessica Hische (San Francisco), Ash Thorp (San Diego), Sara Blake (New York) & our very own Isabel Gatuslao. Also featuring world class studios The Mill (LA) and Dvein (Barcelona).

Speaker Profiles:

Isabel Gatuslao is a graphic designer whose focus is identity. At age 10, she immersed herself in graphic design and has been doing it professionally for two years now.
