Graphic Design Festival Breda: Everyone is a Designer | Breda NL
Mark John DeYoung, through Jumping Dog Design, was invited to participate in the Graphic Design Festival Breda, The Netherlands. Designers and non-designers alike created a T-shirt and/or a sign to focus the Graphic Design Festival on issues of concerns.
The event democratizes the conversation on design, enabling the audience a voice in addition to those scheduled to speak.“We create the future we can imagine. This DIY project is a way in which attendees have a voice. The public becomes participants making design connect and encouraging a positive, creative response,” said DeYoung. “Across the world, (citizen) designers are no longer accepting the idea of serving as a mindless mouthpiece for corporate industry and we’re here to underline that. We are here to emphasize solidarity to our participating design theorists and our fellow citizens.”
