Make Art Fueled by What’s Forbidden

Ideas off-limits

Artists, writers, and creators of all types have been censored by governments or institutions throughout history. Censorship is the suppression of information, communication, speech, or ideas on the grounds that content is somehow harmful, objectionable, or inappropriate. But who controls those definitions?

Say what can’t be said in this design challenge inspired by all that’s been outlawed. Create designs depicting blurred-out art and NSFW designs. Share scenes based on blacklisted art, banned books, or other restricted forms of information. Typography or graphic elements will help you convey the forbidden nature of your designs. Speak out by sharing your censored art for this suppressed challenge.


Featured designs:
Bad Apple by Tan Nuyen
Shut Your Fingers Up by Rodrigo Leonardo Batista Ferreira
