The Design Kids are proud to present Fourplay!
In design, what we produce is not precious artwork but a tool to communicate with and engage the viewer. The most memorable projects are the ones where the user is truly engaged. The show will test the creativity of the teams and highlight the relationship between the designer and the interpretation of the viewer.
Each design team (1 x studio, 1 x student/grad) picks a four lettered word and designs an A1 portrait poster working together under the studios art direction. However, the artwork must be black and white lines only and incomplete – to encourage join the dots, colour by numbers or another activity where the viewer must engage with the piece of work in order to complete the design.
This year Fourplay is limited to 80 spots nationwide. Your work will be shown in cities across Australia so there will be eight final interpretations for each piece. As people arrive at each show, they will be allocated a poster to complete and given a kit of markers, stickers, pens, etc to complete the artwork, with cryptic instructions from the design teams!
