How to contribute to the Wallpaper poster campaign *
Due to high demand, we have extended the deadline to May 1, 2020!
Some of the greatest graphic arts are born out of necessity. For over a hundred years, the use of creative means to convey information has helped people get straight to the point, in good times and bad. Graphic innovation has gone hand in hand with telling important stories and getting the word out, whether it’s hailing the New Deal or the birth of the welfare state, leading the way in public transport or to provide essential information on the health and well-being of everyone.
Never has such a message been so important. And while everyone’s worldview has exceeded all expectations, there are still some vital messages to get across. This is where you come in. Here at Wallpaper *, we strive to showcase creativity and support the community in these unprecedented times. Today we are announcing the launch of our global poster design initiative – Wallpaper * Poster Campaign – to reflect the unparalleled communication capacity of the creative world. You might want to share some helpful tips on social distancing, hand washing, ideas for staying healthy, or maybe you just want to share a positive message to lift your spirits.
Who will be the Abram Games during this period?
How can I get involved?
Mark your entries with #WallpaperPosterCampaign and our in-house team of writers – a global network of home offices and kitchen tables, led by editor Sarah Douglas – will hand-select their favorites. Design A4 so they can be printed at home and placed in windows around the world.
Not only will we’ll be reposting them on our Instagram, making sure to tag every creator, but we’ll be building a virtually pushpin poster wall here on wallpaper.com of the best entries. And each designer will of course own all the rights, we are there to present the designs.
In addition, a very special poster will also be featured in Wallpaper *. The new extended deadline for registrations is Friday May 1, 2020.
One thing we are sure of: Creativity thrives in adversity. Motivate yourself in isolation, increase craft time with the kids, and share your creations with the world. Get started in creation! §
