Here’s a poster - one of dozens produced around Triratna, all seeking to advertise one or another Buddhist event and, as they do so, to communicate something of the flavour of Triratna and how we practice the Dharma in the modern world. But the question arises - could we do it better? Could you “Design This Even Better”? That’s the title of an upcoming event for Triratna designers to be held at the Birmingham Buddhist Centre on Saturday 24th March from 10am to 5pm. Jnanarakshita from the Triratna Development team writes with the details, saying -

“We’re really pleased to announce that the guest presenter on the next “Design This Even Better” day will be Margaret Lonergan, BDes, MA, ANCAD, head of the Visual Communication department at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin.

Margaret will show her work-in-progress on the new visual identity for Triratna’s Dublin Buddhist Centre. The work explores ways of meaningfully and faithfully visualising Buddha, Dharma and Sangha in a Western, urban context. This is sure to be highly instructive and relevant to anyone working in print or web design in the Triratna Buddhist Community. A wide range of themes and aspects, including copywriting and use of photography, will be highlighted.

There will also be the opportunity for designers to bring along a sample of current work for discussion, to learn from others how it could improve.

The day is being run on a dana basis (donations according to what you can afford) and vegetarian / vegan lunches will be provided. To ensure your place, please jnanarakshita [at] triratnadevelopment.org (book with me)”.
