Remember the hours you spent as a kid (or still do as an adult!) coloring the black and white pages of your favorite coloring books? During July’s Design Challenge, we’re reversing the roles and challenging you to create an inspiring coloring book page to be featured on the app we can’t stop buzzing about, Lake Coloring. Before you start designing, get to know more about one of 2017’s Apple Design Award winners and find out what makes a picture-perfect coloring page. Oh and don’t forget, the deadline to submit your entry is 3 p.m. EDT on July 24, 2018
Lake is a coloring app for iPad and iPhone that helps you de-stress through creativity. It comes with an ever-growing collection of coloring books from Instagram popular artists, offered exclusively on Lake. Right now there are 36 artists offering over 500 beautiful drawings, and there is something for everyone’s taste! Each coloring book includes 12 beautiful illustrations, a custom color palette, and endless coloring possibilities. Just as with Spoonflower, when you make a purchase on Lake, you support artists directly!
Don’t miss the exclusive (and free!) Spoonflower pack featuring the top design challenge entries, coming to Lake August 23, 2018.
