Death is not Justice

One more year Beetroot’s entry made it in a Poster4Tomorrow contest.
Our submission “Facing death poster.” was selected amongst the 100 best posters of the “Death is not Justice” contest. It’s also one of the 30 posters that were censored in Ireland. The exhibition in the City Hall of Belfast is now cancelled by the organizers who refused the censorship.
As a selected poster our submission will be featured in the catalogue and exhibitions that are taking place around the world this October.
The list of exhibitions is available here.

Crafting Excellence Logo Competition

Great News! Our entry made it as a judges pick at the Design21 competition by UNESCO! The task was to design a logo for the “Award of Excellence for Handicrafts”. There were 658 entries from 435 entrants in 80 countries. Our logo was selected by Indrasen Vencatachellum as his Judge’s Pick.  Indrasen had this to say about his choice: I like the simplicity of the design, the use of the circle reflecting the universal scope of the Award and the symbolic representation of hand perfection.

SUMMER NEEDS

“I JUST NEED AN ICE-CREAM!”

“STOP IT YOU GREEDY THING…
WE COULD EAT  SOME FRUITS INSTEAD.”

PHOTOBIENNALE POSTER

The main poster of the PhotoBiennale of Thessaloniki had to carry a lot of information. The photographers, the venues, the dates, the strong identity that was used throughout many different applications. In order to follow the brief we decided that we should modify the medium in order to deliver the complex message. The poster turns into a huge hanging on a wall brochure. It does not only carries all the info, but also creates an interesting “interactive” visual effect.
