The Spirit of Manentines Day - DESIGN INSPIRATION

shoutOut on 15/2/12 by DuncanBoxie in wordUp

Hey there all you awesome Springleap designers.

We are so excited about our Spirit of Manentines Day contest, this is going to be such a fun theme to work with. Have you come up with any cool ideas yet?

We thought it would be a good idea to give you all a few ideas and perhaps some direction to help get your creative juices flowing.

In the original posting we laid out the ‘Mission’ of the contest:

“Create a design that embodies The Spirit of Manentine’s Day.

Show us the Spirit of Manentine’s Day by illustrating just how much you love your man (or for the guys – how you love to be loved!) and all the ways in which you celebrate him and show him your appreciation!”

Basically we are looking for a design that would show the ultimate MANS VALENTINES.

There are many guys who feel that Valentine’s Day is really just for the girls. They take their ladies out to fancy restaurants, buy flowers and even crazy expensive gifts, but what do they really get out of it? Men don’t really care about roses or boxes of chocolates, but they do love a big juicy steak or a round of golf. This is why Manentines Day is all about doing the kind of things men like to do!

No flower arranging, painful yoga classes, or tea parties with cupcakes and scones. Nope, it’s time to watch some football, down a few pints of beer and order some greasy take-out.

Here are the Top 10 Rules from the official Manentine’s Day website:

1. Plan for Your Man
2. Dress to impress
3. Present a man bouquet
4. Do something sporty
5. Do to a manly restaurant
6. Cook or bake something
7. Surprise him with a gift
8. Do something relaxing
9. Stroke his big ego
10. Sexy time

To check out the full Spirit of Manentines Day contest brief, please check out the OFFICIAL POSTING.

This contest is pretty open to interpretation and has loads of avenues for creative concepts.
Please remember that the community and the Springleap Team are here to help you create the best possible submission, so don’t hesitate to ask questions, or perhaps even collaborate with another designer.

Here is a GREAT EXAMPLE of a super cool Manentines Day T-shirt design by Noah Jacobus.
We like it!!!

Guys and girls there is obviously a ‘line’ in how far you can take your designs. Don’t make your submissions overly rude and misogynistic. We don’t mind if they are a little bit ‘naughty’, but not downright gross. We are looking for fun and quirky examples of what men want for Valentines, so please don’t be crude…after all, it’s all about the LOVE!

If you would like to find out more please check out the Manentines Day official page, Facebook page, or Youtube channel.

We are so excited to see your Spririt of Manentines Day designs coming through, we have no doubt you will all come up with some hilariously fun concepts.
