The SOCIETY OF HUNGARIAN GRAPHIC DESIGNERS AND TYPOGRAPHERS – www.matt.org.hu/zavar – was running an international graphic design competition in 2009. The title was “Annoying? Redesign it!” Everything imaginable found in Hungary could be redesigned: well-known logos, signage systems, passports, money, identity cards, magazines, shop graphics, street signs, tax forms etc.
Short interviews are featured on the competition’s website where internationally acclaimed designers tell their opinion about design in Hungary and their own experiences generally as a graphic designer. The newest interviews are Stefan Lucut, Ovidiu Hrin, Erwin Bauer and Peter Bilak.
Check back reguraly, the list grows!

Russian artist Veronika Fillippova has designed a puzzle toy that is not only entertaining, but also educational. Gentoy is a model of a human heart in which each part of the heart is marked by a special letter from the DNA combination GATC. The hope is that games like this will inspire more development in Genetic engineering so that future generations will be able to grow new organs, or change their structure…the packaging is also pretty sweet!
