  • Icon lightning.svgHappening

Have you always dreamed of putting your drink on a coaster designed by you? Of course you did. Now it is your chance to realize it. Together with our partners ONLINEPRINTERS / DIEDRUCKEREI.DE, we are looking for coaster designs matching the 2019 Forward Festival motto “The Odd One Out”. Three selected coasters will be produced and given out at the festival venues in Vienna, Munich, Zurich and Hamburg. The oddest one out will receive 2 tickets to Forward Festival in the city of their choice plus a EUR 1.000 printing budget at ONLINEPRINTERS / DIEDRUCKEREI.DE. In addition, the first 3 winners will be rewarded with a 1 year membership of the Interaction Design Foundation.






The Odd One Out


Show us your odd side! Creative people can not be forced into social norms. We know that. Forward doesn’t want you change you, but encourage you to embrace your odd side and let your creativity flow freely. Let’s throw all the rules and logic overboard and start creating the most unique coaster that you can think of. Show us your oddness, because we are looking for artworks that stand apart. Show us your oddest coaster that doesn’t need to fit in with all the others.


Deadline for submissions is March 15th 2019.
To participate, please note that the coaster has a diameter of 10,3cm and it needs at least 300dpi plus 2mm bleed.
