03.21.07 Submission: Teetonic’s Six Cities Design Festival T-shirt Design Competition
Six cities in Scotland — Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, and Stirling — will host the country’s first nationwide international design festival 05.17-06.03.07 to promote and celebrate Scottish design. Designers Wayne Hemingway, Stefan Sagmeister, Timorous Beasties, Zandra Rhodes, and D8 are designing t-shirts for the festival. The competition, hosted by Teetonic, seeks a sixth design encompassing the festival’s theme: Design is Everywhere. The public will vote for its favorite and the winner will receive a “goodie bag” containing, among other prizes, two tickets for the opening of the Scottish Show in May 2007 at The Lighthouse, Scotland’s national center for architecture and design.
