"Sustainable Refrainables" A Compostmodern Core77 Poster Design Competition

Core77 and AIGA SF’s Compostmodern have a challenge for you: Create a poster that illustrates the phrases that help designers move their clients and the public toward sustainable design and business solutions.

“Sustainable Refrainables” is a poster design competition celebrating words of persuasion. One of the most complex ideas we deal with is sustainable design—how to approach it creatively, and how to garner support from our clients to do it effectively.

The Compostmodern Core77 Design Competition invites designers to share the mantric phrases they find most powerful in communicating positive action. Maybe the phrase is something as simple as “I never use the word ’sustainability.’” or “The first rule is to listen. The second rule is to ignore what you heard and do it better.” or “There is no silver bullet, just silver buckshot.”

Whatever your magic phrase, design it up in poster form, upload it to the competition site, and comment on your favorites. We’re looking for your most graphic, persuasive quotables!

Entries will be judged on originality, point of view, graphic design and persuasiveness. The top five participants will be awarded prizes.

Deadline for entries is January 2, 2011.

Read more about the competition, important dates, how to collaborate with other entrants and rules for entry on Core77.
