Breda Poster Competition

Designers in MICA’s GD MFA Studio II created posters for an international competition held in Breda, The Netherlands, in connection with the city’s Graphic Design Festival. 2,100 designers competed from 69 countries. Out of 50 winners, two are from MICA’s Graphic Design MFA program: Katrina Keane and Shiva Nallaperumal.

The competition brief reads, “Graphic designers connect ideas, information and people. This is an important responsibility in a world where image affects behaviour and opinions. Your personal imagination helps others to review, research, reflect and reconnect to new political, economical, ecologic and social systems. Your poster displays a personal way of handling contemporary challenges.”

Some designers chose to comment on global issues such as human trafficking, income inequality, and privacy, while others focused on topics from within the world of visual communication and media, such as body image and the economics of white space.
