Graphic Design Challenge: People Against Covid-19

The Department of Graphic Design at SWPS University in Wrocław is announcing a graphic design challenge “People Against COVID-19”. The challenge provides an opportunity for artists, designers, and anyone to support the #StayHome and #socialdistancing campaigns and also bring a bit of hope and cheer during this difficult time. Submission deadline is April 30, 2020.

The competition is open to everyone.

 

Design Challenge in Challenging Times

Posters have the power to make people reflect on events, bring their attention to important issues, educate, instill socially relevant knowledge or unsettle people to make them notice some issues. The history of poster art, especially in the recent years, indicates that graphic design can integrate or polarize big social groups. Community building by means of various tools is especially important during difficult times.

Best projects of the “People Against COVID-19”competition will be presented at SWPS University’s Graphic Design Gallery and on the graphic design study program webpage at grafika.swps.pl
