When talking about the festival of 2016 there are some important changes to mention. First of all, the color of DESIGN WEEK LITHUANIA visual communication is changed to grapefruit orange. Thanks to our Facebook fans who helped us to choose this color! What is more, in 2016 the festival will have a special theme “Connections”. With this theme we want to emphasize the huge impact that design can have on increasing the welfare of our country and also encourage artists to look for unusual ways to produce and present their works.
