MadLab T- Shirt Design Competition


Its quite clear that the fashion world is in need of our artistic direction, so we are going to kindly help the couture of Manchester by creating our very own t-shirt!

However… we need a little help from our friends.

So its competition time again for you guys!

We need you to create a t-shirt design that represents what Madlab means to you & the digital, creative community. A visual interpretation of what we have given, and what has come from all these chaotic brain storms that have been knocking socks off all over Manchester.

After all, Madlab is your hub of technological innovation & artistic wanderings, a place where you can read about the latest in the digital world with a cup of tea, debate your new favourite graphic novel or concoct a newfangled beeping blinkering badass bot. We are a not for profit community laboratory ready & willing for all your explorations, & so we want to spread the love & show our affiliation, loud and proud on our t-shirts!

Once created, they will be our exclusive limited editions apparel!
