“Semi Permanent is a global creative and design thinking platform. Over 14 years, we have established a community of over 400,000 people and a network of over 800 speakers and artists, across our operation around the globe.
From live event experiences to content across print and digital platforms, our goal is to not only inspire the community but also enable them. It is our hope that through Semi Permanent, the creative community are able to catch a glimpse into what is happening in design, on a global scale while also providing them with the tools to improve their own craft and the opportunity to forge new relationships and collaborations.
The name Semi Permanent was derived from a book published by the founders in 2002 – Permanent: Design is Kinky. Made sense to take what was deemed permanent in print, and move into something permanent only for a few days as a live event, into Semi Permanent.
We run Semi Permanent because we love design, and we love bringing people together to share experiences that not only inspire us but also opens doors to new possibilities for collaboration .
To us, design is so much more than traditional graphics, it’s a universal principal that can applied to every facet of life. It has an intimate relationship with communications, transportation, technology, business and more. It has the capability to affect change across social and environmental issues. We truly believe design has the power to make our world a better place”. Information from https://beta.semipermanent.com/about
