Submit an A3 (3 colour) poster in your own style inspired by the things you love or hate about modern life and contemporary culture - a visual snapshot of now.
The mascots and motifs that represent contemporary culture - the underground scenes, passions, protests and alternative ideas. The accessories and trinkets, the logos and images. Or maybe it’s your personal placard about everything that’s wrong with the world.
Would it work in a collage? Think how this might look in a cut-and-paste riso style, those ideas and images that have hit cult status.
Be as abstract as you want.
What excites you? What’s pop, or what drives you round the twist? Think politics and crisis, celebration and parties, digital overload or mindfullness mayhem .
Think about what we say or where we’re at. New slang or catchphrases that already have cult status. Bumblr profiles and aubergine emojis? Or selling bananas from a pram and walking dogs at the Flea Market.
Think swiping right, must-have tattoos or your curated collection of classic Air Jordan trainers. Big ass bling jewellery, sushi and succulents or an ode to all those damned doughnut shops.
Celebrate late nights, tram lines and cycling half-cut around the city at night? Skateboards, dolly birds, mosh pits or record sleeves. Think about festival fashions, goths and raver subcultures. Or that tragic first time you tried to get in to Berghain.
Be abstract and adventurous, political or serious. It’s riso so no idea is too out-there to try. But most importably embrace the print format, its quirks, and wonderful overprint aesthetic.
