Design Engineering Society – poster competition

The Design Engineering Society are launching the first ever design competition in collaboration with SSCP DTP Challenge Team ‘Plastic Proof Imperial’! We are looking for smart minds to submit brilliant ideas to make Imperial College London a more sustainable university.

In line with the #OneLess campaign across London, we are trying to reduce amount of single use plastic bottles used every year.

We want YOUR HELP to come up with a new bottle and/or a logo design for Plastic Proof Imperial, which needs to be affordable and made of a biodegradable material.

This would inspire people to be more considerate of our environment; encourage students and staff to fill up their water bottles on campus and ultimately reduce the use of single use plastic and its impact on our fragile ecosystems.

The competition is opened to all Imperial students and staff.  Prize money: £350

If you have an idea for either a brand or a product, submit at this link:
