Brooklyn Circus – T-Shirt Design Contest

By - May 27th, 2013

Brooklyn Circus   T Shirt Design ContestEach year, Brooklyn Circus offers a chance for budding designers to come up in their t-shirt design contest. As this year is the fifth anniversary of their Filmore Street location, the graphics will be used on the official anniversary t-shirt. Not only will the winner have bragging rights and a great addition to their portfolio, they will also take home $250 shopping spree at Brooklyn Circus. Unfortunately, the deadline is right around the corner on Tuesday, June 4, so brainstorm your ideas, and enter before noon. For more details of the competition, head over to Brooklyn Circus website or check out their flyer below.

Brooklyn Circus   T Shirt Design Contest


HILARIOUS - they expect the "worlds best" designers to create spec work that could possibly win a grand prize that doesn't even cover the cost of a jacket in their store? Doesn't sound like much of a "spree" to me...looks like an over-priced, lazy, trend-borrowing (ebbets field flannel x..., tanned leather patch print hats, etc) brand doesn't have the design chops to match the one typographically-strong "brooklyn circus" design they're milking, and is hoping to catch a break by dumping off some old product each year to whomever is dumb enough to waste more time than the brand themselves to come up with a successful/original design. Any successful designer makes double this at the very bare minimum (in cash) for a t-shirt design. Pass.
