The team is set to release a series of posters to mark Earth Hour, which takes place on 29 March 2014 and is searching for young creatives to join the likes of Neville Brody, Quentin Blake and Rankin to contribute to the series.

The competition is open to UK residents aged between 16 and 25 who can make posters in any discipline – such as graphic design, illustration, copywriting, photography or product design.

Entrants are asked to create a poster design to inspire a more sustainable lifestyle – it could be about turning things off, buying less, using things less, or any issue that makes people think and act.

Six finalists will be chosen to attend a creative mentoring day at Pentagram’s London office to work up their ideas.

Three designs will then be put forward for a public vote and the winning poster will join the line-up and become the face of the campaign.

Last year’s Do the Green Thing campaign featured 23 limited-edition designs from the likes of Michael Bierut, Pete Fowler, and Google’s Tom Uglow.
