With 450 entries this was really a tough call to judge but we had such a great time and there are so many wonderful entries. I'm pretty sure we'll be contacting lots of you individually to discuss using your designs on future projects!
The above entry by Kirsty Newman is crowned the winner as it really is an innovative push on for male pattern. We can't wait to see it as a repeat and across many other products. A really great design and very commercial. Congratulations Kirsty!
Our runners up will be receiving a pattern related book this month and they are:
We all absolutely loved this pattern and it has so much potential across different products but also with different colour and finish treatments. Great work Poppy!
Moustaches were very popular amongst your entries and we really loved how Hannah combined gentleman' style icons for this all over print. Gorgeous colour palette too! Great work Hannah.
A really nice innovative approach to geometrics with a gorgeous colour palette. Again a very commercial design which could be easily applied to many products. Well done Bess.
A great use of an unusual icon to make a really eye catching pattern. Well done Gin.
A big congratulations to our winner and all our runners up and also a huge thank you to everyone who entered. You should all be really pleased with your work, it's not easy designing for male recipients.
