WANT TO COLLABORATE WITH US?

To celebrate the launch of our new Mechanical Pencil – now funding on Kickstarter – we have teamed up with select artists, illustrators and even cartographers from around the world for special edition collaborations.

Now we are looking for an artist, illustrator, designer, doodler, amateur or professional to partner with for our fourth and final limited edition spot.

The winner will have their design laser engraved along the barrel of our brass and stainless steel Mechanical Pencil, which will be made available on our Kickstarter page for the remainder of the campaign.

The artist will also win their own limited edition Mechanical Pencil featuring their artwork, plus five more to gift to friends and family.

 

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

As you will see from our previous collaborations below, bold line drawings work well as the laser engraving can accurately pick out intricate detail. However, colour and shading doesn't work so well.

The Mechanical Pencil "canvas" is 29.85mm width x 65.00mm height. The design can feature on just one section or wrap around the barrel of the pencil. If the latter it will need to work as one continuous design, such as Lei Melendres' example below.

If you have a design ready to go, we will ideally need a vector file, but a hi-res jpeg or png of your submission will be fine too. We'll also need the name of your design and a brief description about your artwork.

So to clarify:

- We're looking for black and white artwork
- Line drawings work well
- Try to avoid large areas of shading – good use of negative space works best
- The Pencil's canvas size is 29.85mm width x 65.00mm height

 

HOW DO YOU ENTER?

To enter, please send your submission to hello@wingback.co.uk.

Entries close at midnight on Sunday 11 April so get your submissions in quick.

We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Every product that I have bought from Wingback has exceeded my expectations and then some.
My favourite items have been the flasks which I have bought two and the pen.
You can’t buy better than Wingback.
