Samar Maakaroun, designer and creative director, gives a new talk in the Graphic Talks series, organized by the Graphic Elisava masters.
‘Artist, Imposter or somewhere in between?’ is based on Aristotle’s idea of becoming by doing: ‘we become just by doing just things, moderate by doing moderate things, brave by doing brave things.’ That same idea translates today in the saying ‘Fake it till you make it’. But when do we make it? How do we make it? Is making it an external or internal feeling? Does anyone ever tell us: You made it. Well done. You’ve arrived.
In this talk, Samar Maakaroun will share stories, projects, moments from her career that fall somehow between the faking and the making, and what it all comes down to.
