Make your creativity move! Call for graphic design by OTM

OTM is looking for your creative ideas for the design of its first set of postcards, to be used as off-line communication tools whenever we present OTM at meetings, conferences and events. We are looking for fresh, original ideas that talk about international cultural mobility: working across borders, contamination of cultures, inspiration to be found in creative collaborations... and anything that "mobility" of artists and cultural professionals means to you!

What do we ask you?

An original, versatile design to explain visually OTM's mission: information and advocacy for cultural mobility in Europe and beyond (have a look at our mission to know more). 

We are going to produce postcards (10x14 cm) to distribute to our partners (organisations from the cultural sector in different countries, not only in Europe) and audience (policy-makers, organisations from the cultural, social and environmental sector...). The postcards are part of our communication tools, together with our website, newsletter and facebook - and we highly need proposals for creative designs coming from you!

What key words to give you food for creativity?

Artist - Cultural Operator - Mobility - World
Link - Exchange - Local communities - Network
Impact - Long term - Environment 

What to avoid?

- The too obvious ways to think of mobility: plane, train, boat, bus, world map... 

- A strict correlation with the layout of the website on-the-move.org 

 - And of course plagia of any sort!

Which medium?

Original photography or design. Format : jpeg in high resolution (for printing on postcards 10x14 cm). 

What can OTM offer you?

Visibility in Europe and beyond through our website, newsletter, Facebook and of course the postcards!

Once the proposals selected (maximum of 3 designs and hence 3 winners), the winners will have their names and contacts mentioned on all postcards and on OTM facebook page (620 likers to this date), e-newsletter (11,800+ subscribers) and website (11,000+ monthly visitors). At this stage we are not able to provide any monetary reward as OTM is a not-for-profit association with a small budget.  

Who can participate?

Everyone! No restriction of working field (artists and non artists can participate), nationality or age. The only criteria applying concerns the proposals, which must be original (no plagia). 

What are the next steps?

> Send your proposal by 31 August 2012 to mobility@on-the-move.org

Jpeg format in high resolution with your full name, country of residence, email address, website and/or blog/facebook + a short statement in which you certify that you are sending an original proposal. 

> OTM (together with its members) will select maximum 3 designs (possibly by different authors).

> OTM will announce the winners on the website, newsletter and facebook on 10 October 2012 (the newsletter will be sent a few weeks after) 

 

Need further information? Please contact mobility@on-the-move.org (answer will be only provided on details not included in the above call - thanks for your understanding).

Get ready for your creative move!
