Forward Festival 2019

Forward Festival 2019

Othmar Handl and Lukas Kauer are the Forward Festival founders, which is celebrating five editions this year. Both have many years of experience in the design, communication, and creative field, so the natural step for them was to create an interdisciplinary network some years ago, a meeting point where artists, designers, creatives and communication and marketing professionals had the possibility to interact and interchange some ideas. The Forward magazine, which was launched in March 2018, offers regular insights into the world of design and weekly content in collaboration with current…
