Design a Kickass Hip Pocket!

Hip Pocket Design Competition

I drew this in class. ;)

Details of Contest

OBJECTIVE
Design a kick ass hip pocket for my shop. Stylize it, redo it, accessorize it, paint on it, wreck it.
  • If you're a painter, paint on it.
  • If you screen print, print on it.
  • If you sell purse/belt accessories, deck this baby with your hardware, fill it with buckles and straps, and I'll use your hardware on the new design.
  • If you design plushes, make this hip pocket into a cute little stuffed animal.
  • If you sell fabric, well, you know what to do.
Do what you want. Be creative. No limits!

PRIZES
1st place
  • Your winning HP for yourself
  • Your winning HP sold in the shop with your name on the tag
  • $50 gift certificate to jennyndesign
  • Fame and fortune
2nd place - $30 gift certificate to jennyndesign
3rd place - $15 gift certificate to jennyndesign

If the top 3 have completely amazing designs, I could make them all available in the shop (with the names of the winning designers on the tag, of course).


TOOLS TO USE
Design your hip pocket in Photoshop, Illustrator, CAD, Rhino, a notepad, a napkin, your hand, your foot, a collage, a billboard, or tattoo it on you. Don't care. As long as you submit the image(s) to me in .jpg, to whatever size your e-mail can hold.

RULES
1. Submit as many designs as you want (the more, the merrier!).
2. All the designs do not have to be submitted as once. Submit as you have flashes of genius.
3. The dimensions do not have to be the same as the ones offered in the shop. Change them.
4. Don't bother sewing a hip pocket to make it, use an image from my shop and edit it as you wish.
5. Images don't have to look perfect. Be as specific or as vague as you wish. I base the winner on creativity aand potential. I can look past messy photoshopping. Trust me.
6. If you place, your prize gift certificate is transferable. Give it to your mom, sister, dog...
