The competition for the “Rising Star” a graphic designers contest is now open.
The aim of “Rising Star” is to help launch the career of the most talented young graphic designers. The winner has a chance to win an internship at a top advertising agency, Leo Burnett.
Graphic designers and students are encouraged to create and submit any fictional brand and corporate identity on the www.openbrand.com/risingstar website and gallery.
The 20 designers with the highest amount of public "likes" will win certificates and a host of prizes like design software, Adobe plugins from MadebySource.com, life-time OpenBrand Pro accounts, and more.
“There are lots of hugely talented students who'd love to get some recognition, especially in the advertising world”, says Martin Klco, Managing Director of Leo Burnett Prague. “It's time to shed some light on them and maybe even fast-track their careers,” he adds.
OpenBrand.com , a cloud-based, design and marketing platform, created the contest. They wanted to discover the talents of young graphic designers.
“For the contestants, and we have invited the world's top 25 Design schools to participate, we have these cool tools that require no school, like a mock-up building engine to turn their logo into a t-shirt, business card or decal on an airplane in seconds”, says Tim Addison, Marketing Director of OpenBrand. “They’ll be able to focus on the creative and just use us to show off their work quickly and with minimal effort,” he adds.
First round submissions are due May 12th, 2014. The winner will be judged and announced on June 2nd via the public and the team of Martin Klco, Managing Director of Leo Burnett Prague, Martin Pasecky, Creative Director, Tim Addison of OpenBrand and others.
