MADE #YEG Barricade Re-Design Competition

Earlier in the season we met with the great team of professionals over at MADE Edmonton. We gave them them our thoughts for what we thought “Festival City” should have for barricades at all of our amazing events happening outdoors year round. They put out a call for submissions and here we are!

This is a competition.  An exploratory one.

The existing barricades make our festivals, events and markets look like construction zones.  Let’s see what local designers can do to re-design them in a contest.

Barricade should fit within an 8’Wx3’Hx2′, shall weigh between 20-30 lbs., shall be portable + durable + stable, shall be bright + light-reflective and/or lit, shall be able to mount signage, can be made of your choice of materials.

Come down to the market this Thursday August 15th to check out all 8 submissions and let us know your thoughts! You can also view the submissions here barricade finalist poster-2
