Design As It Should Be now is over!
The PDP Conference 2017, scheduled for October in Novi Sad, Serbia, invites artists, designers, students and anyone in between and beyond, to participate in its new poster design contest titled ’Design As It Should Be’.
This year, PDP’s poster design contest is dedicated to the responsibility for creating, growing and changing public opinion of those working in the field of visual communication.
The competition theme is "As It Should Be" and it’s about how working in the field of visual communication means taking responsability for creating, growing, and changing public opinion.
We live in a world filled with information. In different forms, through different channels and with different narratives, information greet us at every turn. Communication is getting faster, easier, and more unstoppable in every way. There are countless ways to transmit a message, but what makes a message worthy to transmit? As a visual creator you take responsibility to create, entice, and change collective opinion.
That’s why they’d like to ask "What’s good design" (in this day and age) anyway? Some say good design is empathetic. They say it makes you happy and helps you. They say it tells a story. That it inspires you and fills you with courage. That it surprises, makes you laugh, asks questions, makes you think. What is good design to you?
