Open call for designers, graphic artists and students

EUNIC Brussels is looking for a designer to create the visual elements of the Transpoesie poetry festival for the next three editions, 2021-2023.
Transpoesie is an annual poetry festival organised by the Brussels cluster of the network of European Union National Institutes for Culture, and its partners. The festival, now in its 11th year celebrates language diversity by bringing poetry in as many languages as possible to the public in Brussels.
Our goal is to mark the annual European Day of Languages and Linguistic Diversity on 26 September by organising a series of events in September and October. To learn more about the festival and its goals, please visit our website:

What we expect:
For the next three edition of Transpoesie, we are looking for a fresh, attractive design that may express poetical thoughts and at the same time to captivate the attention of the public on banners displayed in public spaces.

We need the following visuals:
- 20/25 banners presenting a poem in 3 languages (number of banners depends on the number of poems – to be confirmed shortly)
- general poster with details about the events (A3)
- brochure (A5 / tabloid) with photo, bio and poems in 3 languages of 20/25 poets
- flyer / postcard (10x15)

We will provide you with all content including texts, pictures and logos by 20 June. We expect the final design ready for printing on 16 August.
