Long live the poster


Edit your future

1/ Edit you future – invites the viewer to piece together their version of future and by default create new hybrids, new ideas. The future seems to have so many to-be-determined factors we felt that what may result, interms of ways of living and outcomes, may be notions that challenge and seem potentially alien.


Now is tomorrow

2/ Now is tomorrow. People have a habit of putting themselves in the middle of every situation, and one wonders with the gloomy mood of the community whether the fundamentals of life will change.


Vision for a new world

3/ Visions of a new future. As the climate and world changes it requires people and communities to embrace the present and see the potential in current circumstances.

Poster exhibition submissions
Australian Graphic Design Association
2009 Australian Poster Annual

The poster annual invited designers to respond to:

Sampling The Future – Society is in a continual state of flux. We are now dominated by five major global conditions:

* Climate change
* Diminishing fossil fuels
* Globalised economic crisis
* Generational change, and
* New technologies

In response we felt that one could get caught in the negatives of what the future holds, so we were driven to present a positive perspective of the poster annual’s theme. In challenging times we wanted to make visual messages and impressions that empowered the viewer with possibilities rather than hopelessness.

As a first for AGDA all entries are being published online, along withe the judges‘ choices, allowing you to be the judge, assemble your favourites and vote
