Tell us why design matters

Every month, Computer Arts magazine commissions a new creative to express why design matters to them through an illustration for the print issue, which is animated for iPad.

Computer Arts would like to know why design matters to you, too. Draw a sketch, craft a pithy tagline or write a poem – the method is completely up to you.

The team will pick the most original, inspiring and creative answer, however it's communicated – and the winner will receive a two-year subscription to CA's award-winning digital edition, plus a one-year D&AD membership and the entire CA Collection Volume 2 (six issues).

If you're at D&AD New Blood, you'll find entry forms on the Computer Arts stand. If you're reading this online, simply enter by emailing: with the subject line: Design Matters Competition, and the following details:

  • Full name:
  • Email address:
  • Website (if applicable):
  • University/course (if applicable):
  • Design matters to me because:
  • Please attach your sketch/text as a low-res JPEG or TIF

The Computer Arts team will be at D&AD New Blood 2015 all day on 1-2 July, so make sure you come and say hello.
