Okay, show of hands, who doesn’t think penguins are crazy adorable? No? No one huh? What if said penguins also were I dunno maybe personalized and had cute little props and were carefully handmade by an equally lovely former classmate of mine? Even cuter I think! My lovely friend Akiyo of My Dear Darling makes very cute detailed little penguins, I plan on gifting one to my niece for her upcoming bday. In the meantime there’s a nifty GIVEAWAY going on over at the My Dear Darling blogspot, enter now for your chance to win your very own mini penguin!
55DSL is a streetwear brand that’s been around since 1984. They pride themselves on shaking things up on a regular basis and always getting in on a piece of the action. Their motto is to “live at least 55 seconds per day”….whatever that means. But I digress.
This year they’re partnering with Cut&Paste to present the 55DSL Logo Remix. The Logo Remix challenges graphic designers, illustrators, and typographers, as well as all-around creative types, to take the iconic 55DSL Shield logo and spin it into a remix that reflects 55DSL’s culture and spirit, its origins and its future.
The Grand Prize winner’s design will be featured on a T-shirt design for the 2010 Spring/Summer collection and 1,055€. Which amounts to, given the current value of the dollar I’d say a buck fifty, about $350. Deadline is December 5th, so hurry up and get your entries in!
