Quiksilver “Design a Difference” Tee contest

Hello Humans, Quiksilver is stoked to team up with DesignByHumans to present the Design a Difference Tee Contest. Quiksilver has a deep artistic heritage in board sport culture. Each season, Quiksilver partners with an aesthetic visionary in the creation of our Foundation Tee Shirt Collection benefiting a range of social, economic and environmental causes. For Fall 2009, the charity is the Tony Hawk Foundation and the artist is you! DesignByHumans and Quiksilver will donate 6% of proceeds from the sale of each t-shirt to the Tony Hawk Foundation which helps fund recreational programs and the creation of public skateboard parks in low-income communities.

Check out our board sport inspired collections at Quiksilver.com for some creative direction. Your submissions can be logo or art driven, that is up to you, but all submissions should utilize the Quiksilver name or logo in some fashion.

Submissions are due by March 15th at Midnight. Winning designs will be announced beginning April 5th. Good luck!
