Lecture in Progress has launched a call for entries to design next year’s academic year wall planner. Following on from last year’s beauty by design studio B.A.M., the Make Time project aims to get students excited about the all-important task of timekeeping. The next iteration will be designed by a student, graduate or emerging creative with less than one year’s experience in the industry, selected from the applicants by the LIP team and G . F Smith.
Entrants don’t need to make any new work to enter, simply submit existing work that they feel is fitting of the brief. This asks designers to “consider how the wall planner is used, both as a planner and a physical object in shared spaces, and how we can help them plan their time, factoring in time for work and rest”. The winner will then receive a paid commission by Lecture in Progress to design the wall planner, which will be printed in a run of 8,000 copies and distributed to universities and stockists around the UK.
The winning creative will also receive complimentary production of a G . F Smith Make Book, according to their own design, and a bespoke Make Frame, as well as unlimited Plus membership to Lecture in Progress and a feature on their design on the site.
Submissions close on 20 August; find out more about how to enter here.
