From 28 August to 27 September 2009 the red dot design museum will present the exhibition “100 best posters 08 – Germany, Austria, Switzerland” and thus the results of the competition with the same name held by the association “100 beste Plakate e.V.”. The 100 winning posters, which were selected by a jury of six from the 1,521 submitted entries, present the most current trends of contemporary poster design from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The wide spectrum of designs with regards to styles, techniques and subjects, was staged in the unusual exhibition concept of an interdisciplinary study project of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam under the direction of Nauka Kirschner and Prof. Hermann Weizenegger. The organiser is the Deutsche Plakat Museum (German poster museum) at the Folkwang Museum, Essen, in co-operation with the association “100 Beste Plakate e.V.”, Berlin. The exhibition opening will take place on 27 August 2009 at 6:00 pm at the red dot design museum on the Zollverein world cultural heritage site.
A poster is regarded as an effective, demonstrative, and immediate means of communication. With a stylised design language the exhibition thus uses the visual image of a demonstration. The posters are presented on so-called “lollipops”, which are placards typically seen at demonstrations, and the room installation brings across the vivid character in a dynamic way.
Members of the jury chaired by Bastian Abry and Dimitri Broquard, Zurich, which was in session on 26 and 27 February 2009, were Cordula Alessandri, Vienna, Prof. Georg Barber, Berlin, Dr. Anita Kühnel, Berlin, and Christian Lagé, Berlin.
Besides the presentation of the 100 best posters 08 in Berlin, the red dot design museum in Essen will be the second stop of the exhibition before it will be on show in Lucerne and Vienna at the end of the year.

Creativity is the capacity to evaluate, organise, deconstruct, interpret and synthesise chaos. The result? Assigning a systemically simple well-packaged new proposal to a problem.Creatives definedCreative people are often the last resort 'descramblers'. They can sort contradicting or problematic information all the while letting their supercharged imagination glide over the mess. Most of the time, they have a springy attitude carrying their assignment with pure childlike delight. They feed and soar on the 'gravity' of problems. They shine their true best in the worst of situations. They get enthused over the smallest sparks! They see a magnificent cathedral-like solution in a few significant strokes.
About the designThe recent situation over water, such as the droughts, desertification, and flooding caused by global warming and abnormal global weather patterns, is becoming serious. These posters were created to produce such an awareness of the issues.

Even though the overtly expressed search for orientation and identity by individuals, organisations and entire communities cannot be overlooked, designers and identity strategists hardly engage with the unanswered questions sheltered in contemporary hybrid society and markets. Most identity construction and visual identity production remain based on modernistic Eurocentric or neo-liberal Anglo-American methods of identity and representation although social realities have changed over time.Since the Internet started to be a vital part of consumer daily life we have experienced a worldwide hegemony of branding strategies in professional communication. This superimposed identity plays an enormous role in contemporary society mostly in the form of 'consumable identities' such as product brands, brands of services, political bodies and places, etc.Due to the vast expansion of (online) media possibilities, the production of visual identities to express, manifest and seal artificial identity constructs has increased over the past twenty five years. These constructs have become a new occidentally rooted Esperanto of global culture since they are a cross-cultural, cross-economic, cross-political, cross-religious and cross-geographical phenomenon.
Como transformar 30 cm de borracha e duas tiras,a preço médio de 8 dólares,numa marca mundial. Juntando o simples com a alegria. Exuberância com irreverência. O design com a cor. Toda manifestação da marca, seja ela na mídia que for, tem sempre na sandália o seu ponto de partida. Refletindo a cultura e a alma brasileiras,vamos formando uma identidade única. Deixando de ser uma simples sandália de borracha,para se transformar na primeira marca mundial verdadeiramente brasileira.
