Project Passion: Call for Entries

The exhibition call for entries is now open.

The Project Passion exhibition series showcases the self-initiated work of graphic designers. With this show’s theme of collaboration we aim to highlight how creatives are working together to pursue mutual obsessions/fascinations—outside of client support and feedback. This year’s show will be juried by three exceptional collaborative teams:

  • Jessica Carpenter & Tad Carpenter of Carpenter Collective (Kansas City, MO)
  • Katie Kirk & Nathan Strandberg of Eight Hour Day (Minneapolis, MN)
  • Jonathan Black & Richard Roche of Cast Iron Design (Boulder, CO)

Deadline: June 15 until 11:59pm Entry Website: projectpassiondesign.com Eligibility: Any graphic designer in the world Cost: No submission fees to enter Questions? Contact [email protected]
