Design Odyssey: Reach Wider Audiences with Classical Values - S8008

Share this page

Join visual designer Charis Tsevis as he walks you through how he’s designed and built a design career based on the ideas and values of the classical world from The Odyssey that are used in the world of visual communication. Starting with the view that a moment of crisis is also a moment of opportunity, Charis will describe how a crisis he faced many years ago helped him reshape his career. He’ll also explain how a designer can reach wider audiences and better markets using classical values, good time management, and clear goal setting.

Specifically, Charis will share:

  • How ideas from Gestalt psychology, computer algorithms, and art concepts helped him introduce variable-size mosaics and gain world recognition and a prestigious client list, while dealing with success but staying humble
  • Examples of specific projects from R&D phase to realization, including the creation of mosaic murals for the USA House at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics
