Knitting Design Competition
Open design competition for Knitting Fashion Accessories
Design for the Birlinn Yarn Company and win a holiday in a beautiful Hebridean Thatched Cottage.
Deadline extended to Friday 18th August.
At The Birlinn Yarn Company we are seeking a knitting designer who understands our established brand but who could give us a wee contemporary twist.
Our brand definition incorporates: Norse and Hebridean heritage and culture; Seafaring and Wilderness; Traditional croft practice and Sustainability.
We regard our brand values as: Quality and purity; Positive and meaningful engagement with customers; Valuing local heritage and culture; Caring for our fragile and unique island ecology and Global environmental issues.
We would like our new branded knitting pattern designs to be influenced by:
- Spirit of adventure, wild places, ‘vintage’ explorer
- Scandinavian purity, natural palette, pared back aesthetic
- the Norse origin of our Hebridean sheep
The winning designer will see their patterns developed into two small-scale knitting sets. Their prize will be a week holiday in Lamraig Thatched Cottage on the beautiful Hebridean island of Berneray during summer 2018 plus £200 travel/spending money.
If this appeals to your creative sensibilities and you fancy a peaceful Hebridean holiday then, please download Competition Design Brief for full details.
Enquiries and proposals should be submitted via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Competition closing date extended to: Friday 18th August 2017 17:00.
