WHO AM I? I volunteer as a community moderator for 99designs Designer Community. I in conjunction with another four (4) moderators and various staff members from 99designs want to make the forum a clean, safe, helpful, and friendly place for designers to connect, advice, learn and participate in healthy debates and discussions. THE COMMUNITY The 99designs designer community is an online community spanning the globe. We are diverse and with diversity complexity comes. While we, the moderator try our best, it is also the designer’s responsibility to keep the community as healthy as possible. https://99designs.community/
What's your vision?
WHAT AM I LOOKING FOR? I am looking for an illustrative interpretation that will encapsulate the theme of UNITY and INCLUSION (Inclusivity) within a global diverse design community. Your work must communicate this theme. It is the central focus. 1. UNITY / UNION 2. INCLUSIVITY / INCLUSION 3. DESIGNCOMMUNITY You are welcome to ask anything to gain clarity and to discuss your idea with me before you start working on it so you can take a better informed decision. You are also welcome to submit work-in-progress. I want you to first focus in the big picture and not waste time in little details until you gain your points for your concept creativity and rationale. If you prefer to tackle them all at once, that is up to you. PRIMARY USE: PRINTED POSTER Architectural D Size; 24 x 36 Inches (609.6 mm x 914.4 mm). ADAPTABILITY If your work can be cropped to fit a landscape orientation or an 1:1 aspect ratio without failing to communicate its message, that would be great. However, this adaptability is not compulsory and it won't be weighted in the final decision. STYLE There is no restriction to the illustration style. It is open to the designer’s preference. Work on the style you love or experiment new techniques. This theme is inspired by the 99d Designer Community and San Francisco Design Week (SFDW) which is currently running the theme of CommUNITY. 99d Designer Community: https://99designs.community/ San Francisco Design Week (SFDW): https://sfdesignweek.org/ SFDW 2019 Theme: https://sfdesignweek.org/announcing-the-2019-theme/
STAR RATING / POINTS Submission will receive points (stars). Each point will represent something different. There will be three (3) main points that will evaluate concept creativity, rationale/communication, and concept execution. The last two (2) points will be reserved to the leading and winning ones. These last two (2) points will be given near or at the end of the contest. Below is the order of the points. 1. CONCEPT CREATIVITY 2. RATIONALE / COMMUNICATION* 3. CONCEPT EXECUTION 4. LEADING DESIGN 5. WINNING DESIGN *Please provide a clear explanation about your concept. No short sentences and no wall of texts. The rationale and communication skills will be evaluated together. ATTACHED IMAGES The current attached images below were taken at San Francisco Design Week (SFDW) Opening Party. These are the creations of leading San Francisco and acclaimed international designers. They are for reference purpose about what has been done already and I am not looking for a copy of their ideas. For more, explore the hashtag #SFDW on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/sfdw/ Attached you will also find a few examples of illustration styles that might help you get inspired in style directions you would like to take. Either minimalist or complex, abstract or concrete, it does not matter. What matter is to COMMUNICATE in a creative and clever way the theme of this contest: UNITY & INCLUSIVITY within a design community. 500 Startups: Unity + Inclusion Miami Summit 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AF3yJNxTanc&t= QUOTE IN REGARDS TO INCLUSIVE DESIGN "Inclusive design doesn’t mean you’re designing one thing for all people.
