11.06.13 | Chus has received an Honorable Mention for his «Press Reset» project in a competition organised by the International Festival of Poster and Graphic Dessign of Chaumont.
Our graphic designer is now studying at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in the Hague and participated in the competition “Etudiants, Tous à Chaumont!” with two other students, Roos Groothuizen and Nazanin Karimi.
The theme of the competition was "revolution will not be televised", referring to the way media treats the Arab Spring. The international jury selected twenty projects which evolved around the media covering of this combination of protests and demonstrations, the echoes in social media or the new ways of activism, considering the role of the designer in all these contexts.
Chus, Roos and Nazanin's project focuses on a promotional video about a designers agency which specialises in the development of revolutions: «Press Reset. Restart the system». Its members, experts on strategy, design and technology, constantly question the world and search for new ways to make it better. Their style is defined by simple designs, they do not obsess over aesthetics however at the same time they are provoking, original and of broad scope.
Besides his participation in the competition, Chus was a guest for a series of workshops about graphic design, typography, illustration multimedia, signage and set design amongst others, which took place during the 23rd edition of the festival between the 27th and 31st.
