Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.


Phoenix Design Week
is upon us ... in two months.

This means the prep work and planning for the five day event filled with seminars, national guest speakers, design exhibitions, and ridiculous amounts of networking is well under way.

And that means there are some pretty sweet opportunities for local designers to submit their work. This year, there are five different categories to choose from.

And we'll explain all of them after the jump.

All of these are covered in great detail on the Phoenix Design Week website. But for the quick and dirty run-down, read on, friend.

(Or, if you're not jazzed about participating via design entries, click here to apply to become a guest speaker or a volunteer at the event.)

"IdentiPHX"
Design a new logo for the city of Phoenix. Seriously,
that's it. Wait, we take that back. There are guidelines. Click that
link up there to see them.
All submissions are due by midnight Phoenix time on August 26, 2010.

"Tesselate"
Feel like making something pretty just for fun? This call for entries is all about design for beauty's sake.
You get to create your own vector pattern and then write a little piece
about your inspiration. Go ahead, get creative.
All submissions are due by midnight Phoenix time on August 26, 2010.

"Shelved"
Here's something a little more practical: package
design. Got a good one? Throw it in the ring for a chance to be
exhibited during the PhxDW.
All submissions are due by midnight Phoenix time on August 12, 2010.

"Curated Exhibits"
Ok, listen up all you typeface designers, calligraphers, letterpress artists, and
architecture or interior designers: If you want to exhibit your work,
just apply. Easy enough, right? Well, not really. Judges
also have to think you're good enough. Good luck with that.
If you'd like to submit or know someone you'd love to see exhibit, fill out the form on the Design Week website by August 1, 2010.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
