AND NOW EAST Poster Festival | First Edition

AND NOW EAST Poster Festival | First Edition

Festival Graphic Design


When? 17-26th of September in Bucharest Romania

Where? Point – 10 Eremia Grigorescu

The WHY? Not so long ago, we had two Europes separated by History into West and East. West was fresh, colourful and smart, East was cold, grey and Utopia. And we are all aware of the stereotypes, but something still lives as a legend. Now borders are off, the Internet is on, we have ponies and rainbows, and we are repeatedly asking ourselves if our grass is as green as on the other side. Or maybe greener? AndNowEast looks right of the imaginary fault line and asks: is there an Eastern European visual genius loci? From Intaglio to Indigo to Instagram, the poster has continuously adapted to answer our communication needs. The placard is a versatile vehicle, a mirror of our social and cultural environment, and a summary of our material and immaterial appetites. In short: a coloured radiograph of civilisation. AndNowEast is a local initiative with a regional reach and a global mindset.

OPEN CALL UNTIL 30.08.2021, we invite all designers, students, freelancers and all graphic designers from Eastern Europe to continue to subscribe their work here:
Eligible countries: : Romania, Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, The Czech Republic, and Ukraine. Not sure if your work fits? Drop us a line at

50+ poster exhibition from all over Eastern Europe, workshops, talks, special guests and more is what we’ll cover for this first edition of AND NOW EAST | POSTER FESTIVAL coming on September 17th.

We are here to help in case the Info section did not answer your questions. Also, we are happy to welcome volunteers and partners, so send us an e-mail on if you feel like we can work together.

AND NOW EAST is a poster festival initiated by Local Design Circle. A young, but experienced team. Aside from individual achievements, the group is the organiser of PosterJam, a monthly poster challenge, and the curator of Poster Reposter, the most prominent poster dedicated account on Instagram. We aim to become the voice of Romanian designers, facilitate access to education, and help shape a healthier visual environment.
