Delivery Service – Driver for Flash Delivery Flink opens a design contest and encourages residents and local artists to design the look of a hub. Creative, local artists and locals are invited to show off their creativity and determine the new look of the Flink hub at Van Limburg Stirumplein in Amsterdam.
Following the opening of Getir’s first art store, Flink is the second flash delivery company looking to improve the look of hubs for local residents. Anyone can sign up for the design from today until May 31st and submit their designs here until June 20th. “We want to not only be available to the neighborhood and listen to them, but also improve the look of the street scene with them. Therefore, we encourage local creatives to submit their designs to a facade. Together we can make a social contribution to the neighborhood, ”says Benjamin Zagel, CEO of Flink Nederland.
The submitted designs will be judged by a varied and creative jury consisting of Amsterdam rapper Dio, renowned illustrator and artist Sioejeng Tsao, a local resident of the Staatsliedenbuurt and the leader of the Flink hub. They jointly evaluate all submissions and then announce the new design of the Flink hub. The artist with the winning design will win € 5,000 and the windows of the Flink hub like a canvas. The design competition will be launched in Amsterdam, but if successful, it will be rolled out to other cities.
Flink is now active in 39 municipalities in the Netherlands with more than 60 hubs. To ensure that online shopping services and the neighborhoods where the provider operates work well together, Flink, Gorillas, Getir and Zapp signed a ‘Code of Conduct’ earlier this week. An important starting point is to involve the neighborhoods well in their activities. Flink collaborates with local producers, for example, and the neighborhood can easily contact the hubs with suggestions and any complaints.
