“This initiative celebrates new talents and gives space to youngsters’ creativity”, said Marco Brigi, Sales Manager of Skinwall. “The bid builds a bridge between university and companies and helps students to actually embark on the job market and come into contact [with] professionals. This idea came to us so that young people could enrich their professional experience and give unique and out-of-the-box inputs to our company, which is always looking for an innovative turn”.
The images to be submitted (5 meters wide and 3 meters tall) have no restrictions regarding the technique: the design can be done either by drawing or with digital programmes. There are three thematic areas for the designs:
• natural or urban landscapes with a stark reference to Oriental style (Chinese and Japanese);
• “overlapping images” effect, where different elements merge together and overlay to form a motif. There could be the weave of a carpet, an old ornament, a profile, some fragments of a picture, newspaper clipping or phrases;
• images or illustrations realized with a painting style and complementing ornamental motives with human figures. Old classics revisited are also welcome.
