Design a coffee cup to express a haiku #2
Check out jscroft's Cup or mug contest…
Art & Design
We are creating a line of merchandise featuring graphic designs inspired by original haiku.
What's your vision?
A coffee cup that expresses and showcases ONE of these haikus: dreams of tomorrow memories of yesterday sleeves rolled up today value most highly the ordinary genius of a life well lived every good idea carries within it the seed of a better one pain begat practice but pain has fallen away while practice rises success is moving from one failure to the next with great confidence this imposing stone offers no impediment if I am water Please pick whichever one of the six sparks the best idea. I will pick the design that I think best reflects the chosen verse.
We will be using the Zazzle Classic Mug template, which you can see here: https://www.zazzle.com/custom_value_mug-168910016229703585 Some guidelines: - Design for the Classic Mug and similar styles: neither the frosted glass mug, the stein, nor the travel mug. - Your design should work for both the 11oz and the 15oz sizes. - Note that the print zone stops near the mug handle, and the mug underneath is white. Please take that into consideration. You can upload your design to Zazzle to see it rendered on a mug. If your design includes a dark background, that's fine, but please include an alternative that fades to white on the left & right edges. An abrupt transition on the top & bottom is fine. - The haiku verse and the Twitter handle @17morae should be fully visible when the cup is in either hand. In other words: put it on both sides of the cup. - No upper-case or punctuation in the verse, and please do not change the line structure. Use it exactly as it appears in the brief: lower case and new lines only. - I am looking for expressive imagery, so please no pure-typography designs. - I prefer free fonts and images to licensed stock. Original artwork is best of all!! - If you have a great idea that does not QUITE fit your chosen haiku, show me. Often we can tweak the verse to meet the design.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their cup or mug.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
jscroft collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 3 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
