Paradigm Shirt got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Fresh t-shirt design for a clothing brand trying to make the world a better place! (+royalties)
Check out Paradigm Shirt's T-shirt contest…
I'm looking for a fresh, trendy, hipsterish style visual inspired from the following quote: « The rescue of one animal doesn't change the world, but for the animal the whole world changes » - PETA Beautiful calligraphy can be used. Let your creativity run wild, to turn these words into a beautiful illustration that will convey the idea of the quote. The whole design should generate strong positive feeling and inspiration by just looking at it. Color tones should also support and trigger those positive emotions. A licensing agreement will be signed with the winning designer after the contest so he can retain ownership of his art, and receive 5% royalty on each sale. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Paradigm Shirt is a 100% ethical, responsible, and ecological clothing brand, aiming to transform the 2nd most polluting industry in the world, and vastly non-ethical in terms of labor policies: Textile. While spreading positive paradigm shifting messages through its designs. To go further, 10% of each sale will be redistributed to a charity/association/NGO of your choosing. 3 goals: - Change the textile industry by offering a responsible, and most clean alternative - Spread paradigm shifting messages through positive visuals based on powerful quotes - Put money back into the right hands (organizations committed to make the world a better place) Cutting edge sustainable production process: - Polyester from recycled plastic bottles - Waterless dying The target market is first environmentally conscious people, but the goal it to be able to target the mainstream market as well.
- Illustration/visual inspired from the quote: « The rescue of one animal doesn't change the world, but for the animal the whole world changes » - PETA - Design must trigger strong positive emotional response (happiness, love, compassion...) - It must include typical animal shelter animals (dogs, cats, maybe rabbits and others…) - The quote itself must be readable with a fresh/hipster font, or caligraphy. - The quote needs to be well integrated with the design, it must flow with it. - Can include, nature, colorful ink/water colors, human, double exposure... - The designer must also suggest the solid background color for the dye of the t-shirt, no white or light background. - It should not use the inverted triangle/brand logo or shape All images used must be very high definition for perfect professional quality print (around 5000px width @300dpi). Work file must be minimum 300dpi, and at least 30cmx35cm.
What to avoid
- Integrate the quote in a way that makes it unreadable. - Make a completely abstract design that doesn't illustrate the quote. - Use illuminati, masonic symbolism. - Use a classic, boring font that does not bring that fresh hipster look - Use a cartoony style NO FREE STOCK IMAGES! All images must have full commercial use copyright, or be hand-made vectors. You can use previews images from paid stock images in your submissions.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. T-shirt starts at €179.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their t-shirt.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Paradigm Shirt collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
