Whenever I hear about a design challenge, I instantly want to tell you about it (especially when the prize is cash in your pocket). So if you are a graphic designer, illustrator, doodler, artist, or dabbler, be sure to check out the latest UncommonGoods Design Challenge.
The designer who creates the winning look for this challenge will not only win $500, that person will also have their design featured on a sustainable line of party cups and plates that will be made available for purchase in time for Memorial Day weekend. Pretty exciting!
Think picnics, potato salad, and corn on the cob because you’ll be creating something with uncommon style that can go from pool party to a causal outdoor wedding in a breeze.
Here’s some inspiration for that “blank” summer canvas you are designing for (remember there are cups too)…
I wish I could enter this competition myself. I have so many ideas brewing!
Like all of Uncommon Goods’ design contests, it is super easy to submit your work for consideration (mention you found ’em via papernstitch in the form), but the deadline is REALLY SOON, March 15th, so get to it!
Guest judges for this opportunity range from Candace Holloway (UncommonGoods buyer) to food stylist Diana Yen (who has styled for Kinfolk Magazine). This is a great opportunity to get your work seen. And I was told by the folks at UncommonGoods that even if you dont win, it will get your name out there for future graphic design opportunities.
Here’s your chance to get your work seen on a larger scale and get that $500 in your pocket! Deadline for entries is March 15, 2012 at 11:59 PM ET. Enter now.
