28 Jan The Ancients coming up with the goods
Competition results for a challenge set by the Archaeological Receipts Fund of Greece, have just been announced. Here are some of our favourites.
The Fund asked Greek creatives to submit their graphic design interpretations of ancient themes and symbols, where the best designs would be brought to life in merchandise across all the museums the Fund represents around the country. No pressure!
From specific ‘characters’ such as the Minoan Snake Goddess and the Verging Sun, through to ancient architectural details or the shapes of famous amphitheatres, designers were asked to include upto three designs in relation to their choice of categories, each of which represent works showcased across the Fund’s museum portfolio.
Out of 200 designers who submitted their proposals, 18 are on the list of winners and runners up. Here’s a taste of some of the winning ideas:
The task set was specifically for designers to create an ‘updated visual language’, one that was imaginative, inventive and dynamic and therefore served the the needs of a more and more ‘experienced’ shopping community.
For a full exploration of the winning designs go to the Greek Graphic Designers Association pages.
