Scarves design challenge
Submission Deadline: 19 February, 2013, 6pm CET
Voting Starts: 20 February, 2013, 6pm CET
Front Row Society has partnered with Design Milk, a website dedicated to modern design run by Jaime Derringer, for an über exciting scarf design challenge. Join in the fun, will you?
The sand falling through your fingers. The rough edges of a generational table. The rust that's built up on the hinges of an old nail. A cat's tongue. Acupuncture. Re-creating texture using a computer isn't easy, but it's your new challenge. Observe your environment and locate the formations in nature, find beauty and structure in micro cosmoses, or seek pattern in the man-made. But be sure it's something that you can truly feel without touch. Feel free to use your hands, drawings or Photoshop to manipulate images to create a texture that evokes a visceral response; in other words, something you can immediately feel; an image that makes your touch senses react. Anything goes. Be creative and don’t hold back! Every object has a texture and depth, and we want you to bring it to life.
From this very special design challenge, FRS and Design Milk will select three winners, whom will receive a cash prize of €800 ($1000), 3% of sales and the opportunity to land in some fantastic retail shops around the world. But that's not all! The three winners will also get a scarf of their own design so they can show it off.
We will also conduct an interview with the winners, publicizing their design across the fashion community in Berlin and worldwide.
Here comes the boring part - but we have to make sure for your best interests!
1) All the artwork has to be original and can’t have been submitted anywhere else – the bar is set high so make sure you bring your A game!
2) Please try as hard as possible to stick to our colors and theme.
3) Over a period of 8 days, the FRS and Design Milk community will score and comment on your design. These scores and comments will help us decide which designs should become the next Three scarves to represent FRS and Design Milk.
What can you win?
Each winner receives a one-off immediate prize of €800 // $1000. plus one of their products when it arrives in stock. But that is not all - each & every time we sell 500 pieces of your design, you will receive an additional €200. This means that FRS can continue to embody the spirit of fashion democracy, rewarding our top designs again...and again...and again! We will also conduct an interview with the winner, publicizing their design across the fashion community in Berlin and worldwide.Download Submission Package View latest submissions
