I could have posted this design competition announcement earlier, too bad I found about it late after digging links to some design forums when the submission deadline was only two days left to go. Veerle never provides email subscription to her blog, I got a little upset to my self, why I didn't subscribe to any feed reader before.
The basic concept of this contest is to come up with something creative or witty that visualises the question 'What is Graphic Design?'. Veerle is the only judge and jury for the contest and she gathered attractive prizes to win from sponsors like Adobe Creative Suite CS3, Expression Engine CMS and much more.
Veerle put forward her own poster design, and got interesting comments by other Flickr users. :D She used the same color scheme as shown on her blog, but the design visualized what Graphic Design is in different typos.
The closing date was 15 February 2008, and the contest got the mass attention nearly up to 600 design submissions. As some of you probably know that Veerle's Blog gets PR 8, so this should not be a surprising thing if you find enormous numbers of great poster design entries. You can surf down to enjoy each entries in a Flickr pool group called: What is Graphic Design Poster Competition.
This was my final shot only in 24 hours before the deadline ;p "Feeling Red" LOL it could have been more worst than this one. Check out and please comment and give your critique if you wish.
You can also put your comment to the group pool by login to Flickr or register first if you still don't have Flickr account.
I will add the updates for the winner announcement as soon as Veerle gets the judge result! Stay tune guys :D
Here is my favorite one, designed by gravitymachine, this poster just captured my eyes right away.
