New graphic design contest on Eurospin and Desall invite you to look for new graphic solutions dedicated to the promotional communication within its stores and on paper-based, in particular flyers.

Company description

We are Eurospin, the largest italian discount group. Over 10 million customers have already chosen us and many others discover, every day, the uniqueness of our proposal. After more than 28 Years we now have 1,200 stores employing more than 15,000 employees developing a turnover that in 2019 accounted to over 7 billion Euros.
Eurospin was established in 1993 from the idea of four Italian Entrepreneurs, who meant to give an all-Italian response to the growing customers' demand for savings. Eurospin is the Italian version of the Discount-Store: our property is 100% Italian and the stores satisfy the needs of a typical Italian family, the assortment is built on the daily needs of the Italian gastronomic habits.
Eurospin’s challenge is summed up in the name of the brand itself: “SP” means Shopping and “IN” stands for smart.
Smart shopping is the ability to ensure quality products at the lowest price every day. All Brands are Eurospin Private Labels: as a matter of fact Eurospin remains to this day the only chain in Italy, probably in Europe, not to have top food brands in their assortment of packaged products.
This allows customers to access a quality assortment at unbeatable prices, as most investments are focused on maintaining the value for money. We are passionate about sourcing locally where possible, and many of our products are sourced from Italian suppliers.

What we are looking for

The brief is available in the following languages:

Eurospin is looking for new graphic solutions, which are able to reinterpret some iconic brand images dedicated to the paper-based promotional communication and within its stores (starting with the flyer cover, which will be declined).
This solution will get the concept of the Italian style and smart shopping: that is the ability to ensure quality products at the lowest price every day.


For the correct realisation of your proposals, keep into consideration the following guidelines:

Project typology: the contest subject is the graphic reinterpreting of three promotional themes, which are usually printed on several media and dedicated to the active offers communication within Eurospin stores. Below, you can find the three themes to design.

Offer everything €1
Single price, text (in Italian) to be inserted: "Tante offerte a 1€"

Offer price range
4 different prices group, text (in Italian) to be inserted: "Tante offerte a 0,50€ 1,00€ 1,50€ 2,00€"

Offer % off
Discount in percentage, text (in Italian) to be inserted : "Sconto del 30% sui nostri marchi"

Please note, all texts must be written in Italian language as you see above – don’t translate in English.

The main subject of the composition should be the text composed of letters and numbers, with a clear visual dominance of the numerical component.
For some examples of the current promotional themes, please refer to the material files attached to the contest.

Style: there are not particular restrictions related to the style you have to use, so it is not necessary to follow the Eurospin brand style.
The degree of graphic impact is a fundamental aspect, it must strike the observer and clearly convey the message. However, the composition should have an aesthetically pleasing and balanced appearance and be able to adapt to different target media. The inclusion of accessory graphic elements in line with the concepts of “smart shopping” or with the communication objective is allowed, the important is that the textual part is readable and prevails visually. It is also allowed to use free or paid fonts, which must be indicated in the project description, including name and official web link if possible.

Colours: the colour range choice will have to prefer impactful and bright colours, which are capable of attracting consumers, for example we suggest red colour. You can select different colour variants related to the proposed themes.

Target media: for the purposes of the contest, it is enough to design the three required graphic themes and it is not necessary to submit the graphic design of the entire media.
In order to present your project in the best possible way, you are free to contextualise it within a broader graphic project by inserting it in paper or poster media. The flyer cover is the main communication medium used for promotional themes.

Logo: at your discretion, the possibility to include the Eurospin logo attached to the material files within a larger graphic design for the entire media (optional).

Deliverables: upload all the images that better present your projects, at least one for each theme. Preferably, images in the gallery (maximum 5) must have a proportion of 4:3; allowed format file: .jpg, .gif o .png; colours: RGB; max file size: 1MB.
Instead, attach high resolution images and original files (.ai . psd, ecc..) inside a .ZIP archive. Images can be produced in vector format or raster one. In case of raster format, original files must have a minimum size of 2000x2500 px at 300 dpi (then, the winner will provide necessary variants for declinations).
