Astrid Chevallier Lecture at Univeristy of Caen for her Poster Retrospective

LECTURE

Astrid Chevallier gave a public lecture on March 18,2004.

The main themes were about design research and the implication of the graphic artist in our society.

"The best moment was probably after the lecture, when a student, a young girl, came to me and said 'You just gave me hope that I have the power to do what I really want to do if I focus and work hard enough. This is priceless, thank you'. As a matter of fact, that encounter alone demonstrates that graphic artists do have an influence on the society. What is this girl going to do tomorrow?"

- Astrid Chevallier
