10 images for Ithaca

10 Mar

While searching around I faced to an open poster design competition for an island Ithaca and when I got into the site saw lots of different and joyful designs.

“Ten Images for Ithaca” is a poster competition. It began in 2002, by Fimios, Cultural Events of the Municipality of Ithaca, Greece, as an attempt to reinforce the cultural profile of the island, through the applied arts. Throughout the years, the competition has evolved to a whole group of events and exhibitions, so that, today, it is considered a point of interest for professionals, students and, generally, people that are interested in graphic arts. The contest’s main goal is not only to accent Ithaca as a meeting point for creative people from all over the planet, but, also, to help create ideas that promote the art of visual communication.

These ten are the last year’s winners:

1)Lorans Duplan

2)Fang Yi Liu

3)Prem Balasubramanian

4)Tina Mampel

5)Athanasios Davlouros

6)Efi Iliadou

7)Lorans Duplan

8)Rodrigo Machado

9)Ian Noble

DesignBoost 2009 Will Focus on Design for Life

The theme for the first Designboost key event, DesignBoost 2007, was “sustainable design“. Year two, DesignBoost 2008, focused on sustainable cities with the theme “Long live the city“. This year DesignBoost will go deeper and look into sustainable life with a theme called “Design for Life“.

October 14-16 Designboost presents DesignBoost 2009 “Design for Life” in Malmo through a variety of integrated BoostChat (workshops), BoostTalk (lectures) and a BoostShow (exhibition).

When it comes to sustainable life there are probably many things that needs to be questioned, left could very well be right.

The objective of DesignBoost 2009 is to make everybody question, reach awareness and think in new paths when it comes to creating better lives for lots of people. This is after all the ultimate goal for all design.
