Inside the head of a designer

Channel Four need you!

I meant to blog this at the start of the month as the entry submission for this is Friday 26th March.  Channel 4 need you to design that ‘big thinger’ in front of their entrance that they call the big four. Stephanie Imbeau’s Shelter is spectacular and now this is your chance to create a landmark piece of art.

In short, it’s open to current art/design students and recent graduates.  They need 6 images of your work you’ve created in college/uni and 4 images of the project proposal including a one liner and a short written statement.  You might ask why post this so soon before the entry date (you really have about 48 hours).  I’ll let you into a secret, I submitted mypolice about 8 minutes before the deadline and it was a simple sketch and synopsis.  So just do it!  For all the details go to their website.

How to become the next Big 4 artist

Channel 4’s Big 4 has become something of a London landmark since it was erected in 2007, so it’s great news that planning permission has been secured for another five years. As with the last iteration by Stephanie Imbeau, the fifth skinning of the Big 4 is being awarded to an artist through a competition.


Channel 4 is looking for a fun, playful design to inspire and entertain passers-by, visitors and C4 staff.

Your design must work with the pre-existing 50-foot high metal structure in front of the Channel 4 building on Horseferry Road, be weatherproof and hardwearing, and be able to be lit (from the outside or the inside) to make a statement after dark. The winning design will be conceived as a 3D experience rather than a 2D design.
