The Volvo Design Challenge is an annual design competition for young, driven and talented designers. Volvo aspires to organize a platform where design and automotive meet and explore each others boundaries. The goal is to encourage ambitious designers and to stimulate the development of their talent.
This year they challenge design students and graduates to create a design inspired by the Volvo XC60, the Volvo brand, and to express why and how design moves you.
• Come up with a design inspired by the Volvo XC60, the Volvo brand and the notion: Design Moves Us.
• Volvo challenges you to visualise your interpretation of how these three elements 'move’ you. This can be anything varying from a moving device, a whistling essay, a smart moving textile or a mind-moving design. All design disciplines from fashion to graphic, via architecture or interior design, are invited to participate.
• Upload your most thought-provoking, mind-blowing design to the website and a renowned jury of professionals, led by Studio Job, will select the winning designs. Representative from Volvo in the jury will be Corien Pompe, Design Manager Identity & Innovation at Volvo Car Corporation and alumnus of our school.
• The Volvo Design Challenge is open to all design students connected to design and art academies or universities in the Netherlands. Also designers who have graduated within the last five years are welcome to participate. For general terms & conditions please visit the website www.volvocarsdesign.nl
