This week on Design.nl a fascinating film about legendary designer Maarten van Severen was released last week in Milan. The film looks into the personal and professional life of Van Severen who became the victim of the design industry in a similar way to how many crumble under the pressure of the music industry. The film is yet to gain distribution in the Netherlands, but will be televised in Belgium and shown at selected cinemas. We speak with initiator of What Design Can Do, Richard van der Laken about his successful yearly design conference which found its origins in a time of crisis. Established names stand next to young talents and visitors will play an active role during a series of break out sessions during the fourth edition of WDCD. Also this week we visit the Graphic Design Festival Breda which shows us how graphic designers can play an active role in the social debate. Reconnect the Dots is this year's theme and links parts of the city through interventions, workshops, lectures and exhibitions.
