A few years ago, I broke my rule and I entered a design competition. It was mostly just because in the past I have had some success in entering design competitions for my own and my friend’s favourite bands. So with Jamie Cullum being a favourite of my best friend, I thought I’d enter and try and win those backstage passes or whatever the prize was.
I unfortunately didn’t win, it was a crowd vote, with the results potentially being skewed unethically, but either way I am still quite proud of the design. It also gave me an opportunity to try new things and experiment with only needing to please myself.
