Design It Yourself is an interactive design exhibition where everyone can design a magazine cover, a stop motion animation and T-shirt design. In the exhibition, both children and adults are challenged to set to work as designers. There are several parts of the exhibition there you can let you imagination run free.
We have the 'Stop we have motion' a race against time to make a stop motion animation with all the moveable design elements in the exhibition room. There is a camera hanging from the ceiling which makes a picture every 10 seconds and this results in a stop motion animation.
We also have 'On the cover' where you can design your own magazine cover with the moveable design elements. The cover is marked on the floor and it's so big that you actually can lie on the ground and be part of the cover. Here there is also camera hanging from the ceiling which makes a picture of your design.
There is 'Back to the drawing board' here you can draw on a (bigger than) life size paper t-shirt. Here is also camera hanging from the ceiling which makes a picture of your t-shirt and the result is placed in a magazine template.
There also is a pictogram-drawing-contest-machine the 'Design-o-mat', the machine works like a slot machine and will give you a random crazy assignment. For instance; design a pictogram for 'a swimming pool - for hamsters - in the desert' or ' a parking lot - for annoying people - with humor'.
When you've finished your design you get a receipt and with this you can check your design online and forward it to your friends. All the results are published on the Design It Yourself website, there are new designs being made every minute.
We enjoy working at the cutting edge, challenging ourselves and those around us, looking further than the length of our nose. Our way of working is between that of a design studio and an ad agency. We create conceptually and strategically strong projects with clear, clever designs and solutions. We think before we act, but we act before we talk. That is what we call Smart Design.
Smart Design on a daily basis means that we work for very different clients, like museums, cities, government, educational institutes, charity but also pr-marketing agencies and commercial clients. We like to work on total concepts, to create not only the logo but also the name of the product, the image, the message, the strategy. This results in a strong graphic design in which the form follows the content. And because of this we are a multi-disciplinary agency that works in the field of identity design, publication design, event design, exhibition design, campaign design.
