Examen från Beckmans Designhögskola, Form 

A colour design competition for newly graduataed and students of design, architecture, visual communication and art in Sweden.

PRISAD FÄRG will put colour in focus and has been founded:

  • to create a deeper interest in and awareness of the significance of colour
  • to highlight how we can use colour
  • to show good examples of colour use

This year´s theme
Colour – Form – Future

Colour enriches form. How will form be coloured in the future?

With inspiration from this year’s theme, you create a product, a room, an environment, a city space, a phenomenon, an installation, a picture or any other kind of experience where your feeling and experience of the colour’s influence on the form will be your contribution.

The project is presented in digital form as a PDF, for presentation to the jury members. Do not enter your name on the attached competition contribution. Enter your name, school and how we will most easily get in touch with you in the mail itself.

Also be prepared to display the three winning presentations in fysical form. They will be shown in a separate exhibition. You must also assume that the presentation, after the award ceremony, will be displayed on and possibly in other similar contexts.

  • What feeling do you want to creaate with your colour selection?
