Calling all designers, artists, and fashionistas!
My girls at Shrink Boutique in the Windy City are holding their first Graphic T-Shirt Design Contest! First of all, to get ya’ll educated, Shrink is an online store that sells and promotes streetwear, sportswear, and ready-to-wear for men and women. The winning tee for this contest will be their very first, original branded product, so uh get to thinking because the winning designer receives 50 % of the gross profits for the first 6 months of sales! WOW! It’s a great way to get your designs out there and to sell your work to a great clientele that understands YOUR vision and aesthetic.
