Design Democracy is a non-profit project campaigning for democracy and respect online with digital posters that depict democratic values. Designers are invited through recurring online open calls to design political posters. We then distribute these posters like digital leaflets on social media. 

Design Democracy is currently only available in German. Anyhow, if you would like to participate feel free to enter your poster through the german participation form in english. If you struggle with the form feel free to e-mail us and browse through our posters in the meantime, as luckily graphic design can overcome language barriers.
Please note that you must accept our terms and conditions in order to participate.

With the posters we create visual counter-speech. We want to prevent radicalization and form a counterpoint to discrimination and ignorance. In order to penetrate the non-democratic filter bubble, we specifically use undemocratic hashtags when sharing the posters on social media. This is how the posters work where a peaceful, democratic and tolerant discourse is urgently needed. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and:or Twitter to see all new posters as soon as they are published.

We particularly want to reach people who, in their regular environment, have little contact with peaceful and tolerant messages. As a counterpoint to controversy and ignorance in the usual digital discourse, we attach great importance to not dismissing any opinion as unimportant. Every person, even if s:he belongs to a certain group, is an individual with feelings and own ideas. And every human should be treated as such. We believe that our society will get further with tolerance and respect, rather than with generalizations, hatred and prejudice.
