As part of a collaboration between the Norwegian graphic design union Grafill and International Library of Fashion Research we are excited to welcome graphic designer Ben Ganz, for a Guest Salon on Tuesday 12th of March, from 18:00 to 20:00.

At his Guest Salon “Banal Objects” he will talk about typography, image-making and objects, and his work with fashion- and design clients such as Schiaparelli, Frank Ocean’s accessories brand Homer, Nike, USM, Prada, and Shayne Oliver. Since 2020, Ganz has led the creative directon for the architecture and design magazine PIN–UP, and in 2023, Ben Ganz won the Swiss Design award for a selection of projects. “Collecting Fashion”, a book edited by Alexandra Carl, to be published by Rizzoli later this year, is his most recent project.

This is the seventh edition of Guest Salons; an active meeting point for free conversations around and beyond fashion, once a month at International Library of Fashion Research.
