Arjowiggins Creative Papers [Client] , the world’s leading manufacturer of creative eco-sustainable papers, has launched a new international design contest in partnership with Design Week. The aim is to encourage and promote new talent within the UK and global design community by providing a platform to showcase work inspired by the world’s leading range of creative papers – the Curious Collection.
Inspired by the Curious Story, created by top fashion photographer Grégoire Alexandre for last year’s rejuvenation of the Curious Collection, the contest is looking for a range of entries including illustration, printed artworks, 2D computer generated graphics, 3D sculptures and models that capture the imagination of designers in the UK and across the world.
Open to both professionals and students, the brief for the contest is for designers to create a visual representation of their own Curious Story, where the paper is the hero. Like Grégoire Alexandre’s story of a girl’s vivid journey through different, colourful paper worlds, entries should reflect the curious nature of the designer as well as showcasing originality.
Designs need to be created using papers from the Curious Collection, or featuring them as the centre of the story, and must be submitted via www.yourcuriousstory.com – where a picture of the design work will be posted. In order to receive samples, designers will be required to contact their local distributors or send an email to an address indicated on the website, including a brief description of their planned submission. The deadline for submissions at the international level is September 30th, 2010.
