Bond No. 9 is looking for talented graphic designers or just plain simply talented people to enter a design for their new perfume Brooklyn (flacon pictured there). They already have launched it with an original design but would like to use the surface of the bottle as an art street scene, if you will, a blank surface to be filled in. It does NOT have to be inspired by art street though. So how should a bottle of perfume about Brooklyn look like according to YOU? Deadline is March 31st, 2009,
"When we introduced our latest fragrance, Brooklyn, last month, its breakthrough street-art surface design brought praise and a barrage of responses. Well, we already knew that aficionados of the borough of Brooklyn can be opinionated. But so many strong opinions reached us about what a Brooklyn bottle could look like that we realized we'd better offer more options if we knew what was good for us.
So throughout March 2009, Bond No. 9 invites everyone--amateurs and artists alike--to join our Brooklyn Bottle Design Competition and create additional visuals for this contemporary male-oriented cardamom-cedarwood eau de parfum."...
→ Create your design to fit within the outline of the Bond No. 9 superstar flacon and to include our circular "token" logo. (See outline with logo, attached to this press release, and also downloadable at www.bondno9.com.)
→ Any style, figurative or abstract, is fine with us.
→ Inspiration can come from anywhere in Brooklyn--DUMBO, Park Slope, Flatbush, Canarsie, Midwood, Bay Ridge, et al.--or from the very idea of Brooklyn.
→ Any medium is okay: oil, acrylic, watercolor, house paint, pastel, crayon, Magic Marker, makeup--even a ballpoint pen or pencil will do.
→ Completed designs should be submitted to email@example.com or Bond No. 9, 9 Bond Street, New York, NY 10012 by March 31, 2009.
After our two winners are chosen in early April, we'll put the victorious designs into production, with the winner's names displayed on the bottles. Each winner will also receive one bottle of Brooklyn per month for a year."
