Time to vote for our new library card!

The design competition has reached its next phase as the jury has selected the final four entrys. Now we need your help in deciding on which one of these will be Arcada's new library card. You can cast your vote till 16.12. A big thanks to all of those who were engaged in the competition!

Voting is now closed.

Below you can find the jury's comments on the final four.

A – The green color reflects the library’s existing choice of colour in a positive way. The design’s arrangement makes a good flow.

Dags att rösta fram vårt nya bibliotekskort!
