We have a serious love for graphic t-shirts, so when Flavorpill NYC’s managing editor Leah Taylor was chosen to be the judge of Social Designer’s Kids Story t-shirt design competition (which benefits our friends at 826 National — a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting expository and creative writing for kids ages 6-18.) we were all over it. That, and we’re a big fan of both their owl mascot and unbelievably cool mission: “to spark new thinking about the issues that matter most by encouraging the design community to create fun, socially-relevant graphics for tees, totes and other goods.”
You can get involved too, by submitting a kid-story inspired design. Illustrate a single scene or line from the story, or just the overall gist; be warned that Leah is partial to any story involving peanut butter and The Big Lebowski (we’re not sure where you’re going to find a child who can spin that kind of yarn, but you never know.)
The winner will get $2,000, and the thrill of seeing their design on a t-shirt.
Entry closes on Monday, August 3; you can find more contest details on Social Designer.
