THE BRIEF
The brief is to design a cover for an imaginary issue of DG magazine with the theme: Famous Designers.
Download the Call for Entries. Download the templates.

The SUBJECT can be, for example:
> From any era.
> The work of one or more designers.
> The work of a group of designers that constitutes a particular style or movement.
> A generic sub-group of design (such as fashion, graphic, typography, industrial, performing arts etc.)

The IMAGERY may include: > Emphasis on the style of a particular designer or group of designers. > A portrait of the designer – but this is NOT mandatory. > Examples of the work, e.g. iconic designs, stylistic references, etc. All entries must use the templates supplied by DGi Media (Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop). Templates can be downloaded here. It is important that all of the graphics are the entrant’s own work. Images may be sourced from third parties but they must not be used “as found”. Entrants should use photo-imaging techniques to create unique cover images.
