A new D-Day (Design Day) at the same old place!

Register to participate before 2 May 2011

PLACE: Stara Klaonica Zagrepčanke, Heinzelova 66, Zagreb
TIME:  11 / 12 June 2011

Last year's 24 hours of design saw an intense and refreshing mixture of creativity, education, fraternization, networking and fun, leaving us - like any party worth going to - with contacts, positive energy and a wish to do it all again.

In the second edition of D-Day we aim to conquer the space within and around Stara klaonica (Old Slaughterhouse). For one day only, the venue will host the best productions of young designers up to 35 years of age. We intend to present everything a designer's head can come up with, as well as all that it wishes and has to share with others: concepts, prototypes, self-initiated and purchased works, realized and unrealized projects, all of which are treated equally.

As always, limits should become advantages – think about the exhibiting format because every designer has a 5m² exhibition space at his/her disposal. In addition to the designer fair, we have organised an intensive programme that includes lectures, presentations, projections, workshops as well as musical and other types of events.



We invite you to participate

Why D-Day?

We wish to show the potential of design and inspire young designers to show everything they can do, know how to do and do. The purpose of D-Day is to give an opportunity and venue to young designers to present themselves to the general public, present their work to entrepreneurs and meet colleagues from other countries of the region. Design perpetuates cultural and social development and it is an important factor for the development of a competitive economy. D-Day asserts and demonstrates this potential within a short period of time, but in a format that is intensive. Last year’s 24 hours of design showed that we know how to hob-nob and party, and this year we set our goals even higher.

Participate at D-Day!

All interested exhibitors can apply by submitting the on-line registration until 2 May 2011, at the latest. The registration form consists of general information about the author and has to include a PDF document not larger than 2.5 Mb that contains several reference works and the basic concept of the D-Day presentation. Students are allowed to exhibit works created as part of their educational programme. All such works must stipulate the mentorship (i.e. the presentation should be in accordance with specific rules of the academic institution, if such rules have been proscribed).

Applications will be accepted until 2 May 2011, and the final list of exhibitors will be published on 10 May 2011. Due to the limited number of exhibitors (100 max.), organizers shall determine the preliminary selection on grounds of the quality of all submitted works. Apart from students and young authors, this year we also invite owners and distributors (above all local and regional) of designer brands to participate at the designer market, the sales outlet part of the fair. All those interested please contact us at info@dan-d.info.

If you would like to support D-Day and help with the realization of the manifestation, please contact as at info@dan-d.info.

Terms and Conditions

Only students and designers from SE Europe (up to 35 years of age) may take part at the main fair for young authors (if a work is designed by a group of authors, the criterion is the total age average, which has to be 35 or less).

The arrangement of exhibition spaces will be determined by the Organizer in agreement with exhibiting authors. Special demands regarding exhibits (electricity, assistance in installing the exhibit, etc.) must be stated in the application. All instalments are conducted exclusively by the Organizer. Authors may begin decorating their spaces two days prior to the start of D-Day, and are obligated to finish their preparations by Saturday 11 June 9pm. Exhibit spaces may be dismantled once D-Day ends, i.e. Sunday 12 June 6pm. If an exhibit space is not dismantled by Monday 13 June 12pm, the Organizer will not be held responsible for the exhibit or its components.

In case there is a justified reason due to which an exhibitor cannot conform to these rules, they are obliged to inform the Organizer about such reasons before D-Day begins. The Organizer will provide exhibitors with free exhibition cards/accreditation. All exhibitors must pick up their accreditations at Organizer’s info-desk.

The exhibitor or a representative of the exhibitor shall be present at the exhibition space for the entire duration of the fair. The Organizer is not responsible for any damage made to the exhibits.

All exhibitors must prepare a brief presentation of their work (5 minutes). The presentation must be prepared in accordance with the instructions given to all exhibitors and delivered by 5 June 2011. Exhibitors must also provide a detailed technical description of their exhibit spaces by 1 June 2011.

Additional instructions for exhibitors

Each exhibitor will be given a free-of-charge exhibition space (2 x 2,5m). The plan and photographs of the entire exhibition room will be posted on this website shortly.
