We want you to create an inventive, individual, and delightful illustration/pattern for the lower half of the box. The “Vistaprint-illustration-layout-example.png” attached shows how the illustration will be applied. The base of the box is a blank canvas to showcase your creativity.

Every winning designer will have their profile name featured against their design on the printed boxes. A great opportunity to see your design in the hands of 1000s of business owners.

We are only looking for the illustration/pattern to go on the bottom half of the box. No branding work needed. > There is a barcode that must go on the base of the box - example attached. You must not obstruct this barcode with your design. > Please NO stock. We want to see, awesome, original illustrations. Additional note on the box layout: There is a pull-tab on the outside of the boxes to keep them sealed, which says “Open for business”, which is something to be aware of with your design. Photos of the boxes are included, along with the barcode and pull-tab, for reference. Can't wait to see your ideas!
