As part of the first-ever Powell's Design Contest, we want to give designers the opportunity to show off their skills. Submit an original design* inspired by Powell's Books for a chance to win one of three Powell's Gift Cards. Each of the three winning designs will also be featured on a limited-edition Powell's organic-cotton book bag. Is that cool or what? Totes!
First, create your design. Designs may include vector graphics (line art), text (must be converted to paths), scans of original artwork, and/or photographs (mono-, duo-, or tri-tone).
The theme of the design should represent Powell's Books, Inc. Your design should include the words "Powell's Books" in some way OR one of the company's logos. You can download official logos [on page for contest there is a link].
