Grouphug, the NYC-based design collective, invites emerging and established designers from all disciplines to submit their work for its 2018 NYC Design Week show: RESPECT ME.
RESPECT ME is a design show about female empowerment.
From the beginning of time, women seemingly fall short in comparison to men. They are viewed as inferior and as a result are paid less, underrepresented in the government and almost every industry, subject to sexual harassment, and not guaranteed basic reproductive rights. Underneath the myriad of issues, there is an inherent lack of respect. Half of the world’s population is female, why are they systematically undervalued? We challenge you to think about your own personal experience. Choose an issue you are passionate about and address it. We encourage submissions from all genders & on any LBGTQ+ issue.
All types of work are welcome. Product concepts & prototypes are highly encouraged. Product prototypes, web or app concepts, wearables, etc - anything that you feel addresses the theme.
Submit work by e-mailing krystal(at)grouphug(dot)cc. All submissions are due by
March 11 at 11:59PM. Write “Respect Me Submission” in the e-mail subject and include a sketch and description of your idea. We encourage you to submit early sketches & concepts. Submissions don’t have to be polished!
