One Flag Design

A AdBusters lançou a competição One Flag.

Até 1 de Dezembro de 2008, é uma competição que tem um prazo bastante alargado e que dá uma oportunidade a todos os Designers (e não só) de terem o seu trabalho revisto por um painel de “ultra-especialistas” do Design de Comunicação: Jonathan Barnbrook, Michael Bierut, Vince Frost, Steven Heller, Kalle Lasn, Rick Poynor e Dmitri Siegel.

Visto originalmente no Type for You.

Além de ser uma competição bastante aliciante, é uma iniciativa bastante louvável. Pode ler-se no site:

The One Flag

One Flag

A First Things First Project

Design is at war with itself. We are taught that design is about finding solutions. But the success of these solutions is judged so narrowly – Did it ooze desire? Did it shift units? – that we find ourselves implicated in problems far greater than the ones we solve.

The time has come for a radical shift in priorities. We are now faced with some of the most daunting global challenges in human history. These are real targets, worthy of our problem-solving skills, ripe for our intervention. Yet those who have the vision to rise above national and political boundaries still have no symbol to rally under. We invite you to create a flag – free from language and well-worn clichés – that embodies the idea of global citizenship. A symbol that triggers pride and cohesion, whether worn on a backpack, displayed on a door, or flown on a flagpole. A symbol for anyone to declare membership in a growing and vital human cooperative. We invite you to prove that design has a real role to play in the fate of our world.
