Art in the Park: Kearsney Interpreted Graphic Design Workshop

Kearsney interpreted

Dover based creative practitioners joined graphic designer Edda Salander-Jones in June 2018 for a graphic design workshop to develop a series of communication tools for Art in the Parks: Kearsney Interpreted*, an ambitious arts project in Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens delivered in partnership with Dover Arts Development to explore the landscape designs, ecology, social and industrial heritage of the parks and leave a legacy of art, sculpture, poetry, artists’ films and inspiring graphic design.

This one-day workshop included an introduction to formal graphic design considerations, a segment on standards required for effective graphic-based communication and the importance of throwing away the rule book sometimes!

What was the best thing about today?


Everything: enjoyed meeting new people, gaining knowledge/ideas. Learning about Graphic Design and Rules.

Do’s & Dont’s of design. Non-computer layout. Practical working together.

Fun Collaborations, learning InDesign and meeting like minded people: A fantastic day!
