Our friends over at (No Subject) LA
are working with Blank You Very Much,
a recently launched e-commerce and design platform (as well as the brainchild of streetwear impresario Darren Romanelli
), that gives design enthusiasts worldwide the opportunity to re-interpret iconic brands logos and assets into fresh new concepts! Brands such as soccer legend Pelé,
the notorious musicians of the Pharcyde, and renowned street artist Krink
have all agreed to be "blanked" taking their already well-known identities and having their fans transform them in new and exciting ways. Yeah yeah, this isn't Portland specific, but considering all you creatives in the area, we thought it was worthy of a feature.
BYVM runs individual contests where creatives worldwide can submit their designs, which are then voted on by the BYVM social community. Designs that garner the most votes make it to the next round and then are voted on by an esteemed judging panel (Pelé himself is a judge!). The winning design goes straight into production where it is sold in a limited run exclusively on BlankYouVeryMuch.com. Each winning designer will be rewarded with a cash prize ($1500!) as well as have his/her name sewn into the limited edition shirts.
A few of our faves...
