Open Call | Identity for DesignMarch 2013
DesignMarch are looking for designers and designer teams to create the festival identity for the 2013 edition of DesignMarch. This is the first time the festival identity will be selected via an open call.
DesignMarch is the most important annual design event in Iceland and the largest annual project run by the Iceland Design Centre.
Next year, the festival will be held for the fifth time, taking place on March 14-17. DesignMarch has both a standard look and an annually changing identity, that has in previous years been designed by Siggi Eggertsson and KarlssonWilker, among others.
The DesignMarch identity can be graphics, illustration, photography or any other visual format. It should be unique, clear and suitable for promoting a large festival. All designers and design teams are welcome to take part.
