E-V-O-L-V-E Poster Series: Call for Entries

2019 E-V-O-L-V-E Poster Series Call for Entries

The theme of the 2019 PHXDW Conference is Evolve Design, an homage to the ever-changing nature of design and how it is constantly pushing us to explore new directions, learn new techniques, and evolve our style over time. To help capture this beauty of evolution and display it at the conference, we’re searching for designers to help us create frame-worthy posters that together spell E-V-O-L-V-E. Your poster, along with the others in the series, will become part of the visual brand impact of Phoenix Design Week 2019 and will also be offered for sale at the 2019 PHXDW Conference as collectible items for attendees.

If you’re interested in creating one of these special pieces for the conference, here’s what you need to know: You will be contributing your design on a pro-bono basis in support of AIGA Arizona. Should you be chosen, AIGA will be granted unlimited reproduction rights to your design, however, each artist shall retain copyright to further use of their work for their own purposes after Phoenix Design Week 2019 has concluded. All of the proceeds from Phoenix Design Week poster sales will be collected by AIGA Arizona, a 501(c)(3) organization.

As we search for designers, our creative team will be looking for:
• Variety – how unique is your style and body of work
• Unsung Hero/ine – we hope to include designers and illustrators who have not been featured before; don’t be shy, this is your opportunity to shine
• Diversity – how is your work reflective of our state’s population and rich culture

As a thank you for their hard work and commitment to PHXDW, the chosen designers will each receive one complimentary two-day pass to the PHXDW Evolve Design Conference and 5 copies of their printed poster.

To be considered, send a portfolio link and/or PDF of samples (no larger than 4mb) to ryan@ideascollide.com by 5pm on August 12, 2019. Limited spots are available.

We can’t wait to see your work.
