Create Original T-Shirt Designs for Pact’s ‘Urban Nature’ Fall Line!

Creators Selected On
August 26, 2019

Pact makes guilt-free clothing and apparel by using only organic cotton and only manufacturing in Fair-Trade Certified factories. They feel that good clothes don't have to come at the cost of the people who make them or the planet.

Focusing on style and affordability, Pact believes that everyone deserves access to better choices. The goal of Pact’s new fall collection is to break stereotypes of organic apparel with vibrant colors, unexpected silhouettes, and sophistication -- proving that style and sustainability can coexist.

To help bring their new fall collection to life, Pact is calling on you! Creators from around the world are invited to create original and unique t-shirt designs that represent Pact’s new brand vibe dubbed "Urban Nature".

Pact’s recently defined “Urban Nature” aesthetic is the juxtaposition of the raw, modernity of urban settings with the lush, vibrancy of nature. Each submission should be artwork you feel could be brought to life on Pact’s organic apparel and captures the “Urban Nature” theme. Use this mood board and the photos throughout this brief as inspiration -- and let your creativity flow!

Pact’s Product Design: There are many stereotypes about what "organic" clothes look like -- drab, outdoorsy, crunchy, hippie-like, taupe, etc. Pact wants to show that organic can be fashionable. As such, for this project, Pact wants to shy away from "typical eco" iconography, symbols, colors, etc.

Pact’s Brand Vibe: A Pact customer loves to bring the beauty of nature into their modern city setting. While Pact can articulate the idea in words and through editorial photography (visible throughout this brief), they haven't been able to translate the notion into a graphic/illustration that would make for an emblematic t-shirt that espouses the overall vibe.

Pact’s Dream: One day we will live in a world where "organic" is an unnecessary adjective.
