Simon Guibord | Designer and Musician

Simon Guibord | Designer and Musician | Pecha Kucha Ottawa Vol #7 - Tuesday December 4, 2012 at Shopify Lounge (126 York St., back entrance) | Scoop.it

Over the years, Simon Guibord has established himself as a leading designer in the region. He has worked with countless cultural organizations and artists to define a new kind of visual language in print. His refined designs seek a kind of aesthetic purity without ever delving into strict minimalism. We can find some of these same qualities in his music compositions and sound art, which have been presented in many different contexts, such as the MUTEK festival in Montréal.

A Manifesto for Pecha Kucha Ottawa on "Creative City-Making"

A Manifesto for Pecha Kucha Ottawa on "Creative City-Making" | Pecha Kucha Ottawa Vol #7 - Tuesday December 4, 2012 at Shopify Lounge (126 York St., back entrance) | Scoop.it
