Calendar Design Competition

Visions of the Future – a visual expression of the future through typography & colour.

Open to all design students in Singapore, this is an exceptional opportunity to practise your design skills in real life – following a job from brief through to print. This year’s theme revolves around typography and colour.


    1. Think about the future and how you feel the world may change for the better – this could be anything – for example: fashion, art, transport, technology, space exploration, the environment.
    2. Create a 2–5 word saying about the future – examples: Fashion Forward (fashion trends, Reality Bites (augmented technology, Hands Free (autonomous vehicles)
    3. Create a visual expression of your saying that represents this, combining type, colour and other created graphics (the wording must appear in full). You can use chosen typefaces, hacked type, or create your own lettering.
    4. The image must be typographic based – but can also use illustration to support the overall artwork. No stock or AI-generated imagery is allowed. If you use photography/raster-based images, please ensure these have a (minimum) effective resolution of 300ppi at the required physical size (Download T&C here).
    5. Lastly, choose an OVOL paper stock, from the swatch provided, that enhances your design.
