AOD Competitions

Re-Design @Reveal Competition 2019
In celebration of Reveal 2019 and AOD’s long standing history of supporting the next generation of talent that will lead the future of design, we invite all young budding designers to predict the future through Re-Design student competition.
It’s not about creating something from new materials but re-creating something from old to be the new…

Student requirement:
Work must be clear and concise to your core idea of how your design will challenge and change the future for a more sustainable. All work must show evidence of original sketches or photographs, and what the original was before it was transformed, and clear photographs of the process.
Key questions to think about:
How does your re-design improve the lives of others?
How can it be done better?
What’s your key message or point of view?
Key words: Upcycling, recycling, redesigning, circularity, design for prosperity, design for good, eco/social friendly, future of design, make a difference
The 3 step challenge:
Step 1: What do you think the future holds? What can we do better as a society? You as a future designer will have to redesign something based on our future needs, but what is it?
Step 2: You decided how you wish to express your ideas through which ever category you feel most comfortable
Fashion and textiles – It can be a garment made from recycle fabrics, a redesign of something old or a new material that you make and work with.
Fashion marketing – It can be a new fashion brand or concept for fashion that you make up that sells and promote re-cycled and up cycled fashion.
Visual communications – It can be a poster or a campaign idea, it can be an ad to educate people, or any sort of visual art form that you want to use.
Interiors – It can be the design of a shop of the future made with sustainable materials that you want to use.
Step 3: Submit your work via Google Form
