Creative Speeddating at the Forward Festival

Creative Job Speed Dating

Call for Projects 2017

Pro Helvetia is taking a new approach in the promotion of design and interactive media.

Apply for support

Our call for design projects was successfully launched at the Forward festival in Zurich.

Festival highlights included in particular the ‘creative job speed-dating’ event co-organised by Pro Helvetia, with a large number of designers benefiting from the opportunity to “date” an equally large number of potential business partners. After all, similar rules apply to private and professional life in this respect. The chemistry must be right, a feeling of mutual understanding sparked. Personality, charisma and perceived competence count a lot. In brief – first impressions matter. Among the companies taking part were Nose, Mini, VIU and FRANKE.

Despite the pull of the warm summer weather, the festival was completely sold out. Representatives of Zurich’s creative scene came together to forge contacts and exchange insights and experiences. The young festival organisers managed to attract reputed keynote speakers, including Stefan Sagmeister, Snask, Pfadfinderei and Niklaus Troxler. Going forward, we wish all the ‘creative speed-dating’ participants some stimulating follow-up dates!
