We are so excited to officially announce our “Double Take” July Design Challenge with Betabrand! Here’s the skinny: In addition to winning great prizes, all of the top 15 popularly-voted designs will be featured in the Betabrand Think Tank for a second round of voting in August. Any number of these designs could end up on real garments, making real money, but the popularly-voted winner of the Think Tank round of voting will win a $750 shopping spree at Betabrand.com, as well.
Make us do a “Double Take” with your design!
We are looking for quirky new takes on classic patterns, designs that reveal more than meets the eye upon a second glance, an allover print that could be two things at once, or simply something original, bold, and sure to invite conversation. See the design examples below (which have appeared previously on actual Betabrand garments) and check out our Pinterest board and last week’s blog post for even more inspo.
*Important notes* Designs previously published on the Internet are not eligible for this contest. Designs must be uploaded to a new design slot in your Spoonflower account. Designs do not require printed proofing to enter the contest. Designs will be previewed at 150 DPI in a fat quarter size (21” x 18”) on the voting ballot. Moderation will take place at the close of the contest deadline. All entries adhering to the theme and created for this contest will be eligible for public voting.
