Unlock your creativity by designing an ‘Outside the Box’ Bloom & Wild letterbox this March
Bloom & Wild are calling all creatives who want to join their high-profile packaging portfolio to submit their designs for the brand’s well-loved letterbox (see images). The chosen winner will receive a commission of £2,500 and have their box seen by thousands of Bloom & Wild’s customers.
Over the years, Bloom & Wild have collaborated with brands and designers to create beautiful boxes for their bestselling letterbox flowers. Some of the big brands they have worked with include Liberty London, Boden, Mother of Pearl and Peggy & Kate.
Creativity is at the heart of the brand and they’re excited to begin the search for a new, up-and-coming designer to create the next pattern for the letterbox.
The design brief
This Summer Bloom & Wild is opening the brief to UK designers from any background, at any stage in their life, who want a chance to design our next letterbox. The theme for our range is ‘Summer Brights’. Featuring vibrant cerise and coral tones, the flowers across this range are joyful, energetic and bold.
How to enter
Send a mood board via Bloom & Wild’s competition page that demonstrates your box-design concept. You can include a rationale to understand where your ‘Summer Brights’ idea came from plus examples of previous work you have done to demonstrate your style.
We’ll ask the winning designer to roll their idea out across the outside and inside of the box, plus the finer details. For example, the sticker and ribbon around the flowers’ cellophane and a matching gift card for customers to add at checkout.
To submit your work head to www.bloomandwild.com/outside-the-box where you can upload a digital mood board, a scan of your sketchbook or whatever works for you.
We’ll announce the judges’ favourite entries on Monday 8th April 2019. The winner of this competition will be commissioned to the value of £2,500 by Bloom & Wild to turn their idea into a box pattern for the July/August ‘Summer Brights’ collection. This also includes an original piece of design for the box outer and inner, plus suggestions for a sticker design and ribbon pattern/colour and a gift card cover design or designs (at A6 spec) that ties into your theme and can be selected by our customers at checkout so the packaging sits as a set.
The deadline is midnight on Sunday 31st March 2019 to submit your entry. Terms and conditions can be found on Bloom & Wild’s competition page.
