As part of Sydney Design 2011, eskimo is hosting a screening of curated graphic design film, titles and shorts on our rooftop in Surry Hills.

Moving image is becoming a much greater part of our day-to-day visual vocabulary. As designers, art directors and brand creators, we need to be designing, exploring and thinking more in this medium. With the digital space rapidly advancing, there’s a requirement for a more engaging, interactive, and moving visual language.

The event will bring you a curated, playful selection of work from around the globe. This is creativity through design that aims to inspire, provoke thought and discussion around the theme of design onscreen.

Basking in the spectacular view of the city night lights, it’s also a great chance to catch up and share a drink with other like-minded, creative souls. Drinks and snacks are included in the ticket price.
