Design for Mumford & Sons

Winner Announced On
June 11, 2013

Mumford & Sons are challenging artists and designers from around the world to create official t-shirt designs for their official store!

A quote directly from the band:

"Some of the drawings and artwork we get sent in blows our minds. Sadly we don’t get time to respond to much of it and so, recently, we thought we’d come up with a plan for a way in which we can celebrate the creativity of Mumford & Sons fans far and wide – and in a way that will last too, not just as a fleeting moment in time.

So here’s the plan: we’re really thrilled to invite you to design for us a t-shirt.

The emphasis here is on originality. We’re really keen to see some totally new ideas, using fresh designs and imagery and unlike any of our previous tour ranges. We’ll be looking to add the winning design to our new tour range.

Thanks for taking part and we can’t wait to see what you come up with.

M, B, T & W x"
