BE PART OF THE PROJECT- SUBMIT A POSTCARD DESIGN
We’ll be selecting 33 of what we consider to be the best entries to be published in the final pack. Email your design to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s how to create your design:
The front (i.e. ‘image’) side of the postcard is where you’ll use your creativity to give some insight into your life in lockdown. This could be typographical, symbolic, photographic, illustrative–whatever works best for you! It could be an observation you’ve made, the funny side of the situation, or something contemplative on the compassion, kindness, or hope that has come from lockdown.
The reverse (i.e. ‘text’) side of the postcard is a space where you can provide a paragraph or two to reflect on your experiences, and how they link to, or have influenced, your design. Maybe you’ve come to see the world a little differently, maybe you want to share some challenges you’ve overcome; maybe you want to share some of the little things that have to come to mean so much to you over this period. This part is all about your reasons for wanting to make better outcomes, whatever that means to you.
Feel free to add your name & logo, but avoid it looking or feeling like an advertisement.
Your finished file should be supplied as a print-ready PDF, in CMYK, with 3mm bleed, and trim marks. p1 should be the ‘front’, and p2 the ‘back’.
Finally, remember to keep it positive –this project is all about making people feel uplifted. It may be simple, or it may be grand, but make it sincere.
Submissions are due in by Friday the 15th of May. Download the template PDF file here: Check your downloads folder.
The completed Postcard Packs will be shared with the successful submitters, the Design Community and the Contributors that have all worked to make this possible. Submitting your design indicates that you acknowledge that the 33 Reasons Project has the right to use your design in any way it feels appropriate (with due acknowledgement of the submitter), and has the right to extend the number of packs produced or to take the project online to share with a wider audience.
