New Brief !!!!





For the second part of this two part project, you are invited to send in a 20x20cm tile to be made into a repeated pattern on wrapping paper.

Each sheet will be a collaboration between two artists, one in black and the other in white on brown kraft paper. The first pattern will repeat more densely as it will be 10x10cm. The second, which we are now asking for, will repeat less densely at 20x20cm. Over- printed, it’s bound to be a stunner.

We won’t judge you based on your experience, qualifications, location or age, as long as it’s in by midnight on May 1st (that’s a Sunday night in 3 weeks time) and so long as it fits the rules outlined below, it should be fine.

You can send in a design even if you have submitted to the first part of this two part project and you can send in as many designs as you wish. You must be prepared to see your designs combined with another artist’s design.

The chosen designs will be judged on their ability to tessellate, stick to the rules outlined below and be a tip top rad design. As a tip we’re not too hyped on swirls and hearts. Go to our website and have a scoot through our blog to see previously chosen artworks.

Frinton Press is grateful to IdeasTap for providing funding through its IdeasFund for this project.


Name your file with your name separated by an underscore e.g.Andrew_Lansley.jpg -if you don't do this, we won't look at it, or might not, depending on the weather.

Email your artwork by midnight Sunday 1st May 2011 with the subject line 'WP11' to frintonpress [at] gmail [dot] com
