Young Balkan Designers 2016 now is over!
The Balkan Design Network has recently opened the call for its 2016 product design competition named Young Balkan Designers with a theam ’New Analogue’ calling for design projects − products, concepts, services and scenarios that are bringing human touch back into design process and manufacturing.
The Young Balkan Designers (YBD) talent platform is hosting 2016 edition of its product design competition inviting young designers on the Balkans to participate.
Young Balkan Designers (YBD) is a regional talent platform founded in 2011 with the aim to identify, promote and develop creative potential of the Balkan region in the field of product design through its product design competitions.
"Young Balkan Designers" competition consists of two Open Calls. The first one is challenging young designers to experiment and research their immediate surrounding through the topic "New Analogue".
The second call is custom tailored for business partners and reserved for five projects selected in the first call.
The Balkan Design Network challenges you to think about humanization of the production process, implementation of local manual skills and crafts in contemporary design methodology, with the focus on involvement of your immediate local community in problem-solving process and production, instead of fictional relations offered to us through social networks.
Applicants may be individuals or groups of creators. Each applicant may submit more than one entry.
