Global Talent Search Contest

I've completed the first assignment for the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search contest. We were asked to create a journal cover for the company PaperChase. The theme was a child's playground scene.
It was really great to have an actual assignment with specific direction. I can always use this design for a future greeting card! The shortlist of winners will be announced Aug.1st. 50 people will be selected from the first round, then they narrow down to 8 and then select a winner. The winner gets a two year contact with the Lilla Rogers Company as well as a contract with Robert Kaufman Fabrics- wahoo!

Here is the finished design- and below that is the process I went through to arrive at the final picture. The column of dots on the left will be the spine.

Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search

I signed up for the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search a few weeks ago and TODAY we receive our very first design assignment. This is a contest that the Lilla Rogers company is having to find their next designer. I think it's a great idea and should be a fun learning experience. I'll be sure to post our first assignment as soon as I get it. Wish me luck!
