Design for The Who and Pretty Green

Winner Announced On
January 28, 2014
Along with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, The Who complete the holy trinity of British rock. It is generally acknowledged among rock aficionados that The Who in their heyday were the most exciting live band on the planet, with their Live at Leeds album hailed as the greatest live album of all time.

After a long summer on the road for their European Tour 'Quadrophenia and More', The Who, together with Pretty Green, the U.K based fashion house, are turning to the creative community for help designing new artwork.

Aspiring graphic designers are invited to submit their graphic artwork (using the provided template if desired), as inspired by the vast catalogue of The Who music, for the opportunity to have it produced and featured as a t-shirt and sold on Pretty Green.
The group began as fashionable London mods, playing a self-styled brand of "Maximum R&B," but became much more: the pioneers of rock opera, a powerhouse arena act, and among the first rock groups to successfully integrate (rather than merely fiddle with) synthesizers. Their smashed guitars and overturned (or blown up) drum kits symbolized the violent passions of a band that mixed four distinct and powerful sounds: Pete Townshend's alternately raging or majestic guitar playing, Keith Moon's nearly anarchic drumming style, John Entwistle's facile, thundering bass lines, and Roger Daltrey's impassioned vocals.
One designer will have their artwork interpreted for a t-shirt and sold on Pretty Green's online store.

In addition, they will receive:
  • 5% royalty of all t-shirts sold*
  • $2,500
  • Exposure for their submission across The Who and Pretty Green's official social media channels

*After local sales tax is applied, sold at a retail value of £40.

Pretty Green is an up-front, straight talking British clothing label founded and designed by Liam Gallagher.
