Over the last few years, we have seen how illustration can be successfully applied over many areas - from artwork into the most popular products. I&D - Illustrators & Design is an exhibition - held during the 2019 edition of Bologna Licensing Trade Fair (BLTF).
The exhibition consised of new prototype products made by manufacturing companies from selected images, the work of the artists of the Illustrators Exhibition 2018. From fabrics for curtains, tablecloths, and sheets to lamps and other furnishing accessories: illustration is everywhere.
BLTF's partner companies were inspired by the numerous Italian and foreign illustrations selected last year to create new products or enrich existing lines of manufactured goods. After the exhibition, the products can be included in the catalogs and be offered to Italian and international markets.
I&D - Illustratori & Design offers illustrators the opportunity both to give visibility to their work and to find new opportunities for collaboration through other professional outlets.
