Graphic Matters 2019: open call to design a poster for this info-superpowered competition
“Our world-view is generated by algorithms. Data is ever-present and all around us. More than ever we need people who are openminded and are critical about the information that is presented to them on a silver platter” notes Graphic Matters of its latest Poster Project competition.
“Graphic designers create order out of chaos, give insight into complicated matters and have the power to create an emotional response. They visualize urgent topics so everyone can understand them in the blink of an eye. In the post-digital age the poster is still a powerful tool to communicate important topics. With this Open Call we call upon designers from all over the world to design a poster on a topic they care about!” adds GM.
With this year's theme being “Information Superpower!” Graphic Matters gives a chance to aspiring designers to show they care.
“Climate change, plastic soup, fast fashion, fake news, fear mongering, privacy or a personal matter. Everything is allowed, as long as you use your ‘information superpower’! Make a poster in the form of a data visualization, infographic, map or user manual. For the first time we also allow moving posters!” note the organizers of the event.
The winning posters will be exhibited during Graphic Matters 2019 — the international, biennial festival about graphic design, from 20th September until 27th October, 2019 in Breda, The Netherlands.
The winning moving posters will also be displayed during DEMO festival in Amsterdam on 7th November 2019.
