designist are delighted to collaborate with sean o'sullivan from Badly Made Books on a very special project which will all come together on April 25th for dublin design night. In the meantime, we need your help! We are looking for submissions from you on the theme of Badly Designed Dublin, the winning entry wins a €150 voucher and their design on a special edition run of handmade notebooks.
Have you ever noticed a building, bollard, street sign or skyline and thought, 'that's a really bad design!'?
When looking for 'bad design' you also start to see that 'good design' is often 99 per cent invisible (the title of our favourite design podcast, which takes it's name from a Buckminster Fuller quote "Ninety-nine per cent of who you are is invisible and untouchable").
CompetitionAs well as starting an online conversation about design in Dublin, we are running a COMPETITION for the BEST Badly Designed Dublin entry. To enter, email your image* to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with Badly Designed Dublin in the subject line. The closing date for entries is 18th April.
And then what?
Our team of judges will select three finalists, which will be displayed in designist for Dublin Design Night** on 25th April 6-9pm. The Design Night audience will vote on their favourite image, and the winning image will be made into a very special limited edition notebook, handmade by Sean O'Sullivan of Badly Made Books. The winner also gets a €150 voucher for designist.
*Images should be landscape format, high res (300dpi) and size 200mm x 300mm .
