Designers

Amman Design Week is seeking to exhibit conceptual, experimental and realized design works and projects by designers of all ages, across all disciplines (urban, architecture, interior, landscape, product, automotive, fashion, brand, communication, packaging, digital, animation) that demonstrate social, business, intellectual and aesthetic impact on our lives. We are aspiring to create a showcase of design that engages with and challenges our contemporary reality, learns from it, adapts with it, and changes it.

Open call for participation for the next edition of Amman Design Week will be announced soon. 


Call for Participation: Microfund for Women x Amman Design Week

In collaboration with the MicroFund for Women, Amman Design Week invites university students to apply to take part in a program that engages social responsibility and gives back to the community.

The program, running from July to August, will guide selected participating designers to develop branding and packaging solutions for women supported by the MicroFund for Women. This social initiative not only offers participating designers a chance to build their portfolios, but also provides a real-life work experience with entrepreneurial women, who work in small home-based businesses selling food products across Amman.

The participating students will collaborate with these women and will be challenged through a mentorship program to propose designs that reflect their unique food products. Solutions must be sustainable, affordable, and innovative taking into account the capabilities of the small business, and its future growth and development.

This is a chance for aspiring designers to use their skills to transform communities and small businesses, gearing them towards economic and social autonomy and empowerment.

Deadline to Apply: 28 June 2018.
