Pinup 2014 Design Competition

The Morpholio Project invites students and young professionals around the world to enter the Pinup 2014 design competition and share their voice with the collective intelligence of a community of visual thinkers.

Submissions can be of anything produced for a design studio as a student as well as any un-built theoretical or conceptual project.

Pinup 2014 challenges you to confront the world with your work. By sending it out into the field you will test yourself and your projects. You are the designer, the curator and the critic.

The following types of entries are encouraged: 3D printing, architecture, interiors, interior public space, surfaces, furniture, interior graphics, furniture, interior products, renovations, conceptual space and digital fabrication.

The Competition poses the following questions: What are the aspirations by which we evaluate design today? In an increasingly networked culture, what makes a project capable of cutting through the virtual noise, and starting a new conversation? How do evolving forms of media affect the way in which your message reaches its destination? What is your message?

Entries are collected in two competition categories:

  • Future Voices (students only)
    Future Voices aims to discover upcoming design voices within academia.
  • Emerging Talent (young professionals or enthusiasts)
    Emerging Talent is oriented to all young professionals and upcoming practices.

All winning entrants will receive the title of Competition Winner(s) and will be featured on ArchDaily as well as in a public press release. Additional Honor Awards, Special Recognitions and Honorable mentions will be included in all press releases.

Pinup 2014 was assembled by designers, professors and students as a means to publically promote the research, exploration and investigation currently happening in academia and amongst today’s emerging talent. The competition is supported by ArchDaily, Shapeways, the AIAS, IIDA, ADC, AIGA.
