We're expecting a new addition to our product assortment and we need a talented graphic designer to help us deliver. After the success of the So My Story Begins Babysuit, our buyers are on the hunt for the next best witty statement and creative design. We came up with the saying, now we need your help with the design.

Incorporate our phrase, "Dream big. Start small." into your preexisting design or send us something brand new (as long as you include the phrase) for a chance to see your design on our site and on the chests of our next generation!

GRAND PRIZE: $500 + 5% royalties

RUNNERS UP: Judges will provide all runner up with a critique of their work, as well as tips for marketing and growing your business. Additionally, the UncommonGoods buying team will be happy to review your full portfolio in consideration for future work.

DEADLINE: November 10, 2013 at 11:59 PM ET

HOW DO I ENTER?Submit your original artwork that illustrates "Dream big. Start small." in it. Feel free to create something new or incorporate our phrase into one of your existing designs.

What does it take to be an "uncommon" artist? Your designs should tell a story, be intelligent, show your creative individuality, and express the individuality of the customer. We love designers who demonstrate resourcefulness and out-of-the-box thinking in their work.
