This November, Pictoplasma, the global character design conference from Berlin, returns to New York for its eighth edition—to present the day’s freshest talents and probe the workings of the creative mind on character.
The conference fosters creative exchange and promotes the evolution of style-defining, character vocabulary—from illustration to animation, interactive, game and toy design, to urban and graphic arts. The event also includes a screening of experimental shorts and music videos a far cry from family entertainment.

After payment, all attendees receive a personal registration code via email (sent together with the invoice to the email address used during the payment process, so keep an eye on your Spam-folder!). Attendees are asked to print out this email (especially the included registration code) and bring it to the conference venue together with their valid ID. The full passes (wearable, non-transferable wristbands) will be available directly at the conference venue.

Tickets are generally not refundable once purchased. A participant, who is unable to attend the conference, can name a substitute in writing, and the ticket is transferred.
Cancellation of registration might be possible in writing before September 1, 2019, but an administrative fee of 50,- USD will have to be subtracted from the refund. There’s no chance for reimbursement after September 1, 2019, and absence from the conference does not entitle to reimbursement of the admission fee – simply because all fee’s by then have been spent on the production of the event.

Pictoplasma is an unique project wholeheartedly focussed on contemporary character design and art — abstract figurative entities that create a direct emotional bond with the viewer and have invaded all media over the past decade. The brainchild of Peter Thaler and Lars Denicke is renown for its style-defining book publications, immersive exhibitions, international conferences and festivals, that continuously push anthropomorphic appeal to new limits.
Since its inception in 2004, the annual Pictoplasma Berlin Festival has established itself as the main meeting point for an international audience of visual creators and producers. The event is an unconventional design conference, a forward looking animation film festival, a communal playground for collaborative creation, a surprising tour of gallery exhibitions – and is all about the fun of encountering like minded people. In 2008, Pictoplasma has established a second home in New York in collaboration with Parsons The New School for Design, while further events keep bringing the project from Mexico via Paris to Madrid and around the globe.
