Beyond Surface Design Contest

Toca Me & Lounge Seventy-Two™ Present


everyday we meet people, talk to people on the web, watch beautiful faces on ads and tv. at the end of the day we often resume that there was lots of communication but we don’t know anything about each other.

we want you to allow us a view behind your nice face. show us your thoughts and feelings. your fears or pleasures. what you are occupied with in your daily life. from sadness to happiness. from global issues to personal thoughts. we are interested in you – so let us follow you beyond surface.


your artwork: the technique could range from photography to graphic design, from illustration to typography. you are all free – just use your preferred style for your interpretation of the topic

deadline is 1st december 2007

in the “entries section” all entries are shown and can be immediately commented and rated by public voting. end of december the public voting will be closed and out of a selection of the top rated entries a jury (speakers of the TOCA ME design conference 08, TOCA ME and LOUNGE SEVENTY-TWO™ members) will choose the winners.

please make sure to be aware of the terms and conditions.
