The Graphic Matters 2019, an international, biennial festival about graphic design, now is calling for entries inviting designers from all over the world to design a poster on a topic they care about!

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.

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.
