Design & Fly : the contest

To all designers of the world, whether professional or amateur, this is the competition you have been waiting for!

We have partnered up with ShowUsYourType, a creative project founded in 2009 that provides a platform for artists and designers from all around the world in order to share their talent while exploring cities from a unique perspective.

Over the past 10 years, ShowUsYourType explored 26 cities, 10 exhibitions around the world, spoke at international conferences, implemented typography workshops and was featured in numerous articles.

Since both of us share a love of travel, stimulate people’s sense of adventure and inspire them to explore their world, we have collaborated in order to organize the contest ¨Design & Fly¨ in 3 different cities divided across 3 months.
