主题：Shut Up Speak Up!
Show us your information superpower!
Our world-view is generated by algorithms. Data is ever-present and all around us. More than ever we need people who are openminded and are critical about the information that is presented to them on a silver platter.
Graphic designers create order out of chaos, give insight in complicated matters and have the power to create an emotional response. They visualize urgent topics so everyone can understand them in the blink of an eye.
In the post-digital age the poster is still a powerful tool to communicate important topics. With this Open Call we call upon designers from all over the world to design a poster on a topic they care about!
Climate change, plastic soup, fast fashion, fake news, fear mongering, privacy or a personal matter. Everything is allowed, as long as you use your ‘information superpower’!
Make a poster in the form of a data visualization, infographic, map or user manual. Keep in mind that your poster has to be legible from three meters distance!
For the first time we also allow moving posters! The winning posters will be displayed during Graphic Matters, the winning moving posters will also be displayed during DEMO festival in Amsterdam.
Submit your posters now!
Deadline is August 11th.
Watch the trailer below!

Graphic Matters is an international, biennial festival about graphic design. An extensive programme shows the importance of graphic design and how it impacts our daily lives.
We often don’t realise that graphic designers help us by carving order out of chaos, providing an overview of complex matters or speaking to our emotions. They visualise urgent issues so we can understand them quickly.
The seventh edition of Graphic Matters takes place from September 20th until October 27th 2019, in- and around the Stokvishallen in Breda.
An elaborate exhibition about Information Design shows the highlights of the past hundred years. Current developments become tangible in a programme of exhibitions workshops, talkshows and events.
Our programme isn’t just dedicated to designers, but also to the curious individual and anyone that deals with any kind of information professionally (journalists, analysts, scientists, statisticians, marketeers).
