About Design ‘N Gather 2017

At the intersections of digital and physical, art and technology, Artaic continually stretch the bounds of what can be designed in tile, and we are welcoming you to do the same. Together we invite designers from all backgrounds to become digital mosaic artists.

We will provide you with proprietary software with which to create your own original design, which can be submitted to the Contest for the opportunity to be produced by Artaic.

The Contest welcomes designers from all disciplines: architecture, product design, fashion, interior design, photography, painting, furniture design, and any other creative field to come together, pick up new tools and create a one-of-a-kind piece that has lasting impact on the space and on the individuals that experience it.
