The Double You

Comments Off on The Double YouGraphic Design


The Double You Theory is an ode for individualism, freedom of expression and creativity. We can be more than we let ourselves to believe. The Double You is an initiative for making the unimaginable.

We believe in the spur of the moment, breaking the form and expanding our horizons. We believe in making life more colorful and fun.”

Well okay then. As a part of this ‘initiative’ The Double You has been hosting a design challenge with a grand jury award prize of $2000 that concludes on May 5th. There are some interesting images coming out of the challenge so far and for a decent cash prize, supported by what sounds like a positive network and message you might as well throw your hat in the ring if you are feeling up to it. Visit the Double You site for more information about entering the design challenge.

The Diesel wall project is once again open for submissions. Diesel Wall is an international art contest pushing what Diesel likes to call ‘art democracy’ that aims to bring intriguing, inspiring, insightful, inciting and contemporary ideas to giant urban canvases in city centers around the globe. Diesel encourages submitters to ‘say something that means something’. The jury members for this year include Bigas Luna, Peter Saville, Terry Jones, and Wilbert Das, Diesel’s Creative Director. From May to July ‘08, depending on each city’s Diesel Wall timeline, winners will be announced both through the web site and local events to then proceed with the setting-up of the winning installations on each Wall. Artworks – conceived for a specific Wall or for all four Walls – can use painting, photography, video, performance, light, sound, text, experimental concepts including 3D, performance and show elements are also welcome.
