We are excited to bring you this brief in collaboration with 99designs, the ultimate platform for finding and working with creative talent.
As fellow creatives, we challenge you to come up with an illustration that represents the idea of creativity and what it means to be a creative person.
You have complete freedom to use hand-lettering/creative typography, illustration or a combination of both. You are not required to have any text in your composition if you can convey the message by using purely illustration.
Please do not use:
- Stock photos, stock illustrations, fonts
You have the freedom to work in Photoshop, Illustrator, Procreate, etc. and you can also do mixed media. Please work in high resolution, ideally 3000px x 3000px or above. Winning designers will be required to provide PDF and PNG files (with transparency) and layered working files (PSD, AI).
Here are some simple phrases you could use in the composition if you decide to have typographic elements incorporated: (You do not need to come up with any new phrase)
- Design your career
- Have fun learning
- Spark your creativity
- Yes I'm a designer
- Ignite new ideas
- Learn, create, inspire
Feel free to use these phrases as inspiration for your illustration, even if you don't use any typography. Don't forget to check out our references to have a complete overview of what we are (and aren't!) looking for.
The winning designs will be printed on merchandise for our online shop, which features T-Shirts designed for creatives by creatives. The shirts are proudly worn by us in our YouTube videos and by our fans.
In addition to snagging a cool $500 for your winning design, there's an educational opportunity for grabs. We'll be hosting a livestream during the qualifying round and review entries in real-time.
Additionally, winners will receive an interview feature on the Yes I’m a Designer blog and social media shoutouts. Stay tuned to the contest page for a link to the livestream later this week.
