Award-winning German mobile phone provider congstar leads the mobile phone space by offering their customers maximum flexibility and freedom. Recently, congstar is offering a new mobile tariff to their customers called "The way I want it" along with a fresh, bright and colorful brand design to accompany the campaign.

To celebrate "The way I want it" and the colorful brand profile, congstar invites artists around the world to design artwork for a limited edition line of congstar fashion items.

Get inspired by this mood board that shows the colors of the brand and submit your design for a T-Shirt, a hoodie or a pair of sneakers using one of these templates.

congstar will select three designs (one for each fashion item) or even more from all submissions. The selected designs will be produced as part of a limited edition congstar fashion collection. Additionally the selected designs will be rewarded with €2,000 each.
True to the company's claim "You want it, you get it," German telecommunications provider congstar offers its customers exactly the mobile and DSL products that best suit their personal habits and lifestyle.
