Entertainment & The Arts
Hello Creative people,,, We’re a startup based in London (UK) called Eddison Wordplay, and we’re still at a pre-launch stage. Our brand aims to showcase literary art with visual creativity by giving life, through illustrated artwork, to our original thought-provoking one-liners, all written by our founder, Robert Eddison, who is a thinker, journalist and playwright. Through practicing his hobby, he has written over 32,000 one-liners (aphorisms) on over 150 categories, making him the world’s leading aphorist who writes with consideration to quality and quantity. We are looking for designers to illustrate our one-liners in a way that reinforces the words. The designs, along with the words, will be used to put on our merchandise and social media. Our brand values reflect boldness, wittiness and thought-provoking. We target all males/females from ages 15-40, but mainly from 16-27, who are interested in art, language, artistry T-shirts, wall art, etc...
What's your vision?
For this contest we would like you to create a drawn illustration that brings our one-liners to life; Illustration is a function-based artistic manifestation. It means to possess easy-to-understand quality while rocking people's mind. By this we mean that the artwork should reflect, speak, reinforce and enhance the words. The artwork must adhere to the following values: -Thought-provoking (most important) -Bold -Quirky -Witty The artwork should follow the following guidelines: -Similar to one-line art -Drawn from scratch (original) -Main colors are black, shades of grey and white (You have the option to add very minimal pops of one other color if you think it needs so) Here are 3 one-liners for you to choose from (to illustrate) - Promise me the earth and I’ll settle for a coffee - Play hard to get and you risk not being got - Some take it easy; most take it difficult It is your decision whether you would like to illustrate the words figuratively or in a literal sense whichever suits the concept best. The words can be in whatever position, font style, size you see best. They can be: -Scattered -In a pattern -Small font -Angled... etc. The only condition here is that they are existent and readable from a close distance at least. Just to be more in-depth, these will be applied on our merchandise (mainly: wall art, T-shirts, and other products) and social media pages. Thank you
I will include an example of a one-liner that was illustrated for us very creatively. This inspiration photo is only to further explain what we mean by "illustrating the words". You can see in the example that the design speaks and reinforces the words in a visual sense. The design can be as simple or as complex as you see fit, as long as the end result matches all the factors mentioned before. Note: you don't need to have the text laid out as shown in the attachment. Please feel free to arrange the words in any way you wish as long as they are present and for the font size you can make it small as long as it's readable from a distance. Thank you

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 illustration or graphics.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
merchh collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.

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.
