About Weltformat

This internationally recognised festival introduces design enthusiasts to different poster trends in Switzerland and promotes the poster medium in all its facets.

Weltformat DXB is a collaboration between Tashkeel, Welformat (a collective of graphic designers from Lucerne), Cairo-based designer Engy Aly and Mobius Design Studio’s Design House, with the support of Pro-Helvetia. It will be supported by four poster design workshops, three public talks and a publication.

In parallel, there will be an exhibition of posters created in response to the theme of Delusions and Errors by a diverse group of designers from the MENA region. It attempts to explore notions of embracing seemingly imperfect processes, malfunctions, or the unpredictability of different methodologies of working.
