A showcase space to present young Italian talents in today’s world of visual design. An observatory on the experimentation of new languages in visual communication in Italy.

Neologia

2021-2022

Open Call

Neologia is a Graphic Days® project that aims to create a showcase space to present talented young Italians in today’s world of visual design: a democratic and constantly evolving environment that brings together the best projects of young creators, rewarding quality and the experimentation of languages, thus allowing new creative minds to become part of a dynamic and international context.

As in the lexicon, the term “neologia” indicates an enrichment process through the creation of new words and expressions. In the same way, with the call, we wanted to highlight the ability of young designers to embrace stimuli, sometimes external to the world of design, reinterpreting them and making them flow into new forms and orientations.

Smart Italia, a cooperative society that offers support to workers in the fields of culture, creativity and knowledge supported the first and second edition of Neologia by selecting and rewarding an absolute winner in 2021 and two winners in 2022 with a total amount of € 1000 that could be spent in training for each edition.

Neologia is aimed at young Italians (or those that have lived in Italy for at least two years) aged 18 to 30, who can submit projects within one of the following catagories:  Motion Graphic, Poster Design, Editorial Design and GIF.

Neologia is looking for innovative, experimental works characterized by stylistic and language contamination with the aim of monitoring and presenting an observatory of new trends of visual design in Italy.
