The Unfold poster design contest

( via swarm of angels )

Palla Cityscape

Design a feature film poster for our open source movie.
Fame/riches to follow…

Palla has released his latest stunning image for A Swarm of Angels visualisations under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0), so we can use it as the main photographic element of our teaser poster for The Unfold.

We’d like you to make the final design.


The image explores one of the main visual effects of the story — the idea of the world splitting, fracturing, and unfolding. The poster should showcase this using the photograph as a core visual, but with additional typographic and illustrative elements as the designer sees fit. This is an opportunity to indulge in classic and artistic poster design free of the usual commercial imperatives and informational clutter associated with many modern examples.

Posters format:

Final size – A2 (16.5 x 23.4 in — 420 x 594 mm). Portrait or landscape aspect ratio.
Submissions should be preview jpegs no more than 1500 pixels in length maximum.
All images submitted must fall under a Creative Commons CC-BY-NC license, with the winning image able to be used in all ASOA activities.

The winning design will be decided through discussion at The Nine Orders forums, alongside Palla and myself. Besides the poster being printed, as well as featured in future publicity and exhibitions, the designer will be entitled a revenue share of any proceeds from the poster.

Submissions are welcome from members and non-members of the Swarm. You can enter by posting a link to your poster image in the comments (contact us for any questions).

The final poster will be made available for purchase so please join the swarm or sign-up to the mailing list to be kept informed and register your interest.
