The State of Design Festival is the largest and most innovative design event in Australia and the heart of design thinking and design activity each year. Taking place from July 20–31 2011, the State of Design Festival increases awareness of the value of design and showcases how design generates innovation and adds value to both business and society.
Under the 2011 theme of Design that Moves, the Festival surveys design in, on and around projects that are transformative, mobile and networked. Workshops and forums explore the nomadic, the cyclical and the role of design systems. Events will be presented in transitional zones: platforms, revitalised spaces, foyers and stairs as the Festival explores how Melbourne can use design to become a more active city.

Bumpers, promos, idents, teasers... the world's TV stations are in a fierce battle for your subconscious mind now that multi-channel satellite and cable delivery systems — and zapping through them with the remote control — have become the norm. This presents designers with an enormous opportunity — and a stiff challenge.
What is now known as "tactile design" is coming increasingly into vogue as designers grow disenchanted with what they perceive as the soul-lessness of digital techniques and feel a need to be more involved with their material, more hands-on. We have gathered designers who came to the concept of tactile design after having started out in the digital field, to demonstrate how tactile illustrations jumps off pages, billboards and screens.
