DESIGN CONTEST: Nokia 'Pimp Our Devs' - $2700 in prizes

shoutOut on 17/4/12 by Duncan Boxshall-Smith in wordUp

Contest REBRIEF! 

It's true - our designers have been given a great opportunity to help Nokia's Developers experience the extraordinary, everyday! 

We’ve rebriefed this contest to up the wow factor, so here’s an opportunity to take your imagination out of the box and let it run wild and free!

And not only has the contest been rebriefed - designers have been given an extension, and can now submit until 20 July!  


Show off your talent in the search for the perfect design to pimp out the Nokia Developer community and win large heaps of cold hard cash! 


To inspire the Nokia Developer base by creating an imaginative t-shirt design that appeals to app developers and illustrates the coolness of being a Nokia Developer. 
Nokia Developers are proud technologists, but are trendy and adventurous. People should see your t-shirt design and instantly recognise the wearer as a Nokia Developer or associate it with the brand, but always keep in mind that your design must include 3 important aspects:


1. Imagination (new ideas / innovation / smart apps / inspiration / outside the box / infographics)

2. Mobile (experience & device)

3. Lumia (illuminate/light/Bauhaus)


Important: your designs should illuminate the life of Nokia developers, and don’t forget – you can submit 5 designs, to increase your chances of having a winning design selected!

Also important: you’ll receive a logo pack as part of your contest entry – these are optional and provided to assist you in your designing. 



1.     Designers must use the BLACK t-shirt template from the Springleap.com Submission Kit.

2.     Don’t imitate the Metro style or colours (the boxes of colour on the images below)
