Voting is officially closed for our August Design Challenge (winner will be announced Thursday, the 25th), and in the meantime we just couldn’t wait to tell you about what we have in store for September.
We are delighted to team up with Headbands of Hope to create designs for an amazing cause. Headbands of Hope are given to children with cancer in hospitals across the US because, as Jess Ekstrom, founder of Headbands of Hope believes, fashion can be a great vehicle for positive self-identity.
In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month, we hope this month’s theme, “dreamers,” will inspire designs of celestial and sky imagery and/or future aspirations, such as travel, careers, and people to one day meet. Top 5 winners will have their designs licensed for an exclusive Spoonflower x Headbands of Hope collection.
The finished headbands are 20″ around and 3″ wide, and previews will be viewed at the swatch size (8″ x 8″) so that voters can appreciate the fine details of your dreamy small scale headband designs. We won’t be providing a downloadable template for this challenge since the final product is a simple rectangle , but below you’ll find a diagram to help you get a sense of the scale and final dimensions of the product.
In your wildest dreams, where do you see yourself? What would you be if you could be anything? We’re seeking designs that capture the wistful dreams that drive us each and every day, whether it’s traveling to faraway lands, dreaming of becoming a scientist or a ballerina, or simply the act of day dreaming. Designs must be original and created just for our Headbands of Hope Dreamers Design Challenge. Designs that don’t comply with the official rules will be removed from the contest.
Stay tuned for September 1st when we’ll make an official announcement of the amazing prizes, timeline and official rules!
