Weekly updates from BLDG 25

Free People Design-A-Bag Contest!

It is my great pleasure to announce the Free People Design-A-Bag Contest!
Using the colors green & blue, create a design that will be screen-printed on our medium cloth bags, used at all Free People stores and trade shows!
Aside from having their design used, the winner will receive a $200 gift card that may be used at any Free People store or online, as well as 10 cloth bags with your design on it for you and your friends!
A Few Guidelines:
-Use no more than 3 colors in your design, and try to stick to cool colors. Green and blue are what we are looking for most.
-The bags are made from sheer voile fabric in a natural color that will have the design screen-printed on it. Because of this, please keep in mind that it is difficult to have any colors that look water-colory or less saturated. It’s more of an all-or-nothing deal, where the color is there, or it isn’t.
-Please avoid things like landscapes or other things that wouldn’t look good upside down– the design needs to be versatile and look as good upside down as rightside up.
-Please don’t worry about putting the Free People logo or your name on the design. Our cloth bag team will add the Free People logo and a small “designed by Winner Person for Free People” to the winning design.
-The bags will be in use for Spring 2009, starting in January. Try and make your designs kind of Spring-esque!
-The ideal size for designs is 11inches by 16inches. If you are turning in your entry by email, make sure it is scanned at 200 dpi, or a higher resolution.
-All e-mail entries must be received by Friday June 27th, 2008 and all regular mail entries must be postmarked by Friday June 27th, 2008 and received by Friday July 5th, 2008.
-Be sure to include your name, address, and phone number with your entry! One entry per person, please!
Email your entries to:
Mail your entries to:
ATTN: Pruitt Shutt
5000 South Broad Street Bldg#15
Philadelphia, PA 19112
A friendly reminder: Regardless of which way you enter the contest, be sure to read the Official Rules, as by entering the contest you will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by them.
Below, find a couple pictures of past bags for inspiration!
Best of luck to all that choose to enter!




ANA -June 11, 2008, 6:06PM

You said things should look as good right side up as upside down so no landscapes but in the past bags there is a landscape…?
That aside this sounds cool. I love the pink bag with the whimsical horse.

melissa -June 11, 2008, 9:04PM

I may have missed this when reading through, but is it limited to one submission per contestant? Fun contest (:

pruittfpgirl -June 11, 2008, 9:51PM

These are really good questions! I apologize for not addressing them in the original post!
Ana, I should have thought of a better example than a landscape for my description of how the design should look good up or down. There was a landscape in the past bags but I think that is something we have tried to avoid in more recent bags. I do think though, that things like houses or ponds and such could work in a design, maybe if they were splayed around the page in a number of directions or in a way like the pink bag with the horse… Actually, you guys can show me! :)
Melissa, yes it is one submission per person.
Thank you so much for your questions! If you have or anyone else has any more questions, please, please feel free to post them here!

Jocelyne -June 12, 2008, 12:19AM

HI! :),
I would like to know, i’m a drawer who mostly does illustrations, i’ve never made a bag before but I really want to participate in this contest. Do you need the final submission to be the actual bag with the design or just the design with sketches/drawings of the final idea?
Also one more thing wouldn’t the winner also recieve a percentage of the money if the bags sell as it’s the winner’s design that’s being put on these bags?
Thank you! :)

Chelsea -June 12, 2008, 4:24AM

Is there a certain type of medium we should use? Paper and pen, etc… or computer programs, or fabric and paint, perhaps to send into you?
This sounds like so much fun!!! I can’t wait to get started!

heatha -June 12, 2008, 9:08AM

Hi Jocy!
Re: profits. We actually do not sell these bags. We give them away at our stores as shopping bags-instead of using paper or plastic bags. :)

pruittfpgirl -June 12, 2008, 9:49AM

Hi Jocy! Thanks for your questions!
The final submission should not be a bag or anything, just a 2-d design that would either be on an 11 by 16 sheet of paper in the mail, or over email, a file that would be about the equivalent size of an 11 by 16 paper, scanned at 200 dpi or higher quality. I’m afraid the make of the bag – as in the shape, size, cut, etc… – is not something that can be changed as we have a format and size that we always use. What you will be designing is literally the screen print on the material that the bag is made of.
Also, to Chelsea, I would say most any 2-d medium is fine, though it is limited to being on paper, so fabric and paint wouldn’t be good. But paper and paint would be fine! Or paper and pen, paper and markers, photoshop, paint, etc etc etc… :)
Finally, as Heatha correctly pointed out, we do not make any profit from these bags. These bags are the bags we use to hold clothing that the shopper has purchased.
But, just FYI, here is some legal jargon from the Official Rules : “Submitter understands and acknowledges that Submitter will not be paid for or receive any form of compensation for her/his design submission (except as is stated in “Rule 7:Prize” herein) in exchange for granting Sponsor these rights.” (The rights referenced are the rights to ownership of the design.)
Hope this helps! I am so excited to see all the cool designs you guys will submit!
And again, please, please feel free to ask any other questions you might have! I will do my best to answer them quickly! Thanks!

andrea -June 12, 2008, 1:31PM

love this!!
also, if you can, try to come by my Fly event next week at a super cute boutique in South Philly.

JillZilla -June 12, 2008, 3:29PM

This is too cool!!! I will brainstorm my heart out! Thank you Pruitt, and free people!

Sam. -June 12, 2008, 4:15PM

I’ve got another question to throw into the fray: Is adding the actual words ‘Free People’ to the bag out of the question? Or other words, for that matter, just as long as they’re obvious from any direction what they say and as long as they relate to the actual graphic? I’d like to add my own hand drawn type to my design but wanted to check in before I took off with my idea…
Any help would be righteous :)

pruittfpgirl -June 12, 2008, 4:32PM

Hey Sam!
I wanted to be sure people knew that the Free People logo itself is not necessary for their design, but I don’t see why you couldn’t put the words ‘free people’ or any other words in the design. What you are describing sounds totally appropriate and cool.
Basically any words that are appropriate, either to the brand or to your design, and like you say, are pretty obvious from any direction, would be fine.
It sounds to me like you have the right idea!
Let me know if i can help you in any other way, and as always, please, everyone feel free to post any other questions!
I look forward to seeing your entry!

aileen -June 13, 2008, 1:45PM

I’m really psyched about this project!! I was wondering if there is any sort of theme or is it “anything goes”? From what I read, I know you’d like an all-over print for spring in cool colors…. Is an Illustrator file an acceptable form of submission? Thanks for the fun opportunity! : )

pruittfpgirl -June 13, 2008, 3:54PM

Hello Aileen! I am so glad you are pumped about the contest! We are too!
An Illustrator file is absolutely acceptable! Do save it as a .jpeg as well though, just in case, and for ease of sending, etc…
As for a theme- not really! Sounds like you had about the right idea – springy is good, and greens or blues are pretty key, and of course a Free People-y feel! But other than that, it’s pretty open.
Best of luck in the contest!
Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have!

tiffany -June 13, 2008, 9:02PM

at the end of the contest, will we get our original designs back (if sent by mail)?

daisy janie -June 13, 2008, 9:57PM

How awesome of you to offer this! I will definitely work something up!!! All the best to you!

pruittfpgirl -June 14, 2008, 8:46PM

Hey Tiffany!
My first thought in regards to your question about if you will get your original designs back is that no, you probably won’t. But, I want to look into it, and see if it might be possible to get them back to you, so let me ask around at work on Monday and see what people say.
I think a more likely thing would be that we would, after the winner is announced, put all the entries up on a flickr account for everyone to see, and thereby you could possibly get your design back, as well as see everyone’s awesome entries.
More as I get it.
And please, all feel free to ask more questions as you have them!

emily -June 14, 2008, 10:42PM

i love this contest! what a sweet idea.
i know the theme is greens and blues, but is it okay to have a very small amount of one other color somewhere in the design? i’m just thinking of a little pink as an accent and i was wondering if that was acceptable.

pruittfpgirl -June 15, 2008, 8:33AM

Hey Emily!
Thanks for your question! I’m so glad you like the contest! I have been so pumped about it. :)
One other color in the design is totally fine!
Just so long as you don’t have more than three colors in the design.
But yeah that sounds great!
Best of Luck!
And please feel free to post any other questions!

Caroline -June 16, 2008, 4:42PM

I have a similar question to emily’s but…
Would our chances be totally squashed if we did not use say green…?
I have an inspiration that does not really include alot of green
be honest though becuase i could keep brainstorming
this contest sounds amazing
i love you!

pruittfpgirl -June 16, 2008, 5:05PM

Hey Caroline!
Thanks for your question.
I would say that your chances would not be totally squashed if you didn’t use green, but they would be totally squashed if you didn’t use cool colors. For example, if you don’t want to use green but used blue or purple or black etc, that would be fine. I hope this helps! Good luck, and I’m so happy you are pumped about the contest!
Any other questions, keep ’em coming!

Caroline -June 16, 2008, 10:09PM

Thanks for an awesome contest! I’m so excited about it! I just had one question, does the actual design have to be 11 x 16 or can it be like one design repeated multiple times that fills up an 11 x 16 space? I hope I explained that okay. Thank You!

pruittfpgirl -June 17, 2008, 9:44AM

Hello Caroline! You explained that just fine! :)
It can be a design repeated that fills up an 11×16 space, that would be totally okay!
Thanks for your question!
If anyone has any more questions, please feel free to post them!

Halie -June 17, 2008, 3:42PM

Hi! I have a question…you said three maximum colors, but can we use different shades of each of those colors? (i.e., dark green and light green, along with shades of two other colors). And also…should we send in the original design, or a copy (you said something about scanning in the guidelines…). Thanks!

Carly -June 17, 2008, 3:45PM

This idea is sooo awesome and I already have half of my design drawn, but I was wondering if by ‘three colors’ if I could use a few different shades of green and have that count as ‘one color’ (green) or if by using 4 shades of green that would count as four colors? I hope this is easy to understand. I just don’t want to end up using five different blues, 3 greens, and one purple and having that count as using nine colors instead of three.

pruittfpgirl -June 17, 2008, 4:25PM

Hi Carly and Halie!
You guys basically had the same question so I will answer you both at once! :)
Four different shades of green would be four different colors. So yes, you can use different shades of the same color, but unfortunately, for the purposes of this contest they would count as different colors. The reason for this technicality and rule is because of the price of printing colors. When printing, different shades of green are different colors, and save for the most recent bag, we have tried to use as few colors as possible for our bags, which is why we have a three color limit. I hope this helps and doesn’t make too much trouble for your design!
Also, Halie, you can send in the original design or scan a copy, whichever suits you. The scanning guidlines are for those people who are emailing their design and are scanning it from an original not done on the computer. Or, if they did their design on the computer, we want them to know the resolution necessary. Obviously, the scanning guidelines don’t matter if you are sending in your entry via snail mail.
I hope this info helps you guys out!
Please do post any other questions you might have!
Good luck in the contest!

Joy -June 17, 2008, 8:25PM

I’m soooo excited and I actually am going on a trip this friday so will probably be doing my design on the plane. (Hehe:-)
So yeah, im really excited, but I do have a few questions!:
1. What do u mean by “cool” colors? Like not hot pink?!? And more like purple?
2. Do we have to use the whole 11 x 16 space? It seems like A LOT of space to draw….. ?
ThankYou very much!
luv~ hawaii gurl!

Halie -June 17, 2008, 9:25PM

Okay, I see! Thanks for clearing that up. Would leaving white (blank) space count as a color as well? Or would that just represent a place you wouldn’t print on?

Brooke -June 17, 2008, 9:55PM

Hello, I was wondering..I’m mailing in my design and the paper isn’t 11×16. But my design may be repeated over and over and arranged in anyway( even upside down) to fit an 11×16 space. So is that okay if its on like say a 10 x 6 peace of paper?

Allison -June 17, 2008, 10:47PM

Can we put our design on a regular peice or printer paper for when we send it to free people?

pruittfpgirl -June 18, 2008, 12:10PM

Hello Everyone! Thank you for all your questions! These are good questions!
Hawaii Gurl – The cool colors are shades of green, blue, or purple. Warm colors are reds, oranges, and yellows. (and pinks! ) The main colors we are looking for in designs for this contest are green and blue, but purple would be fine too. We just really want to avoid warm colors, red in particular, since we have used warm colors for most of our bags in the past. We want to try something new!
As for the paper questions, which I have recieved many, I’m sorry I haven’t been more clear! You can put your entry on any sized piece of paper, as long as your design could be repeated over and over to fill up a space about 11×16. 11×16 is a big space! If you want to fill it all the way up, go for it! But you don’t have to, as long as you have a versatile design that we can use to fill up the space later. Also, regular pieces of printer paper is fine!
… I’m actually still not thinking what I just wrote was very clear about the paper, but I can’t think of a better way to put it just now… So if that didn’t help, please feel free to ask again or ask other paper questions! I will try my hardest!
And also, Halie, you are right to suspect that a white or blank space would just be an area not printed on. Those areas will just appear as a natural color, which is the color of the voile fabric we use for the bags.
I hope this helps you all! If not and you have any more questions, please post them! I will get back to you as quick as I can. That goes for anyone!
Good luck!

Joy -June 18, 2008, 4:04PM

Thank You P! that did help alot!!!!! thx!
I’d like to say GOOD LUCK 2 every1!!!!!!
Luv- Hawaii Gurl!

Brooke -June 18, 2008, 5:35PM

Thank you P! Yes that helped..and I mailed mine today! Good luck everyone!

danni -June 18, 2008, 6:37PM

Hi P –
Ok so I have a question (sorry if this is repetitive but I read through all the comments & your answers and now I have a question, hehe)
So I was planning on doing my entry in Illustrator/Photoshop; my concept was to use scanned in textures (since the ‘feel’ & look of free people to me entails this!) and also add some vector elements to it as well (illustrator, my favorite!) But after reading one of your answers, this can only be a THREE-color maximum design, so really my random scanned elements & textures, even if they are ‘cool’ colors, wouldn’t work cause I guess that would be a lot more than 3-colors? :(
Thanks so much!
– danni

Rebecca -June 18, 2008, 9:49PM

Hi. I am so excited for this contest, but I have a couple of questions.
1) does black count as a color (to outline the drawings)?
2) is there an age limit for this contest?
3) is the 11×16 size the size of one side of the bag? or is it wrapped around for both sides?
Thank you!

Alli -June 19, 2008, 12:10AM

I am SO incredibly excited about this contest! I always complain to my friends how although I absolutely LOVE doodling swirls and leaves and stars and dots, it can’t really go too far (sadly, there isn’t exactly a college which excepts a doodle portfolio). Now I can put my love for doodling towards something and (hopefully!) get an end product. But, rambling aside I have a quick question. For the design, are you looking for a new and fresh idea? A new look for Free People? Or are you looking for something that would fit right in with Free People? Thanks for this opportunity, can’t wait to see if my design makes it!

pruittfpgirl -June 19, 2008, 10:02AM

Hello Danni, Rebecca and Alli!
Don’t worry about questions or repetitive questions or anything like that! All your questions are welcome! :-)
Danni, I am sorry to say that yes, it does sound like your idea, (though a darn cool idea!) would probably have too many different colors to work for this particular contest. That would be a really cute screen print for a shirt or a skirt though! I’m sorry it won’t work for the bag, but I am confident you will come up with another awesome idea!
Rebecca, the age limit for the contest is 18 years old or over, on account of some laws regarding contests in the USA and such. (If you are 16 or thereabouts, a good way around it would be to ask your mom if she will enter your design for you.)
Black would count as a color, yes. Even to outline stuff.
The actual size of one side of the bag is 17 inches by 16 inches. The actual size of the main strip of material on the one side of the bag is 11 inches by 16 inches. The main reason that we asked for about 11 by 16 was more to give you guys an idea of about how big a space the one side would be. However, I wouldn’t worry too much about that, because your design would be printed on a long strip of material, which later gets cut and sewn into the bags. That is why the design has to look good from any angle and any which-way, since it is just printed over and over on a long strip of viole.
Alli, I love to doodle too! You could always try art school! They are more accepting of doodlers! :-)
As for your question, I would say we are definitely looking for something that fits in with Free People and is brand appropriate. …Though I do think that new and fresh ideas will inherently come in since we are getting ideas from all you guys, and seeing how you view the brand and what you all think fits in with Free People! But yes, do try for something that you feel fits in with the brand.
Thanks for all your questions! Please as always feel free to ask any other questions you might have, and if I missed anything, ask that too!

Rachael -June 20, 2008, 4:04PM

pruittfpgirl -June 20, 2008, 4:24PM

Hello Rachael!
I’m so glad you are excited about the contest!
And no need to be sorry, all questions are valid and welcome!
The contest is to create a design that would be screen-printed onto the cloth material that we use to make our shopping bags. So rather than buying a bag and sewing or drawing on it, your entry should just be a 2-dimensional design, like on a piece of paper or on photoshop or paint etc…
However, there are a couple limits on the designs – they should use no more than 3 colors, and ideally be in highly saturated, cool colors- green and blue especially.
For more details on what type of designs we are looking for, please check out the “A Few Guidelines” section of the original post.
I hope this helps!
If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to ask!

Emma -June 20, 2008, 8:14PM

this is the SWEETEST contest ever–i am so psyched!! but im only sixteen so how can i have my mom enter my design for me exactly? like what type of information do i need to include with it? thanks!! :)

Tasia -June 20, 2008, 11:34PM

This is such an awesome idea, I love Free People and the whole FP look!!! I have a question, which hopefully hasn’t already been asked. I understand about the 3 colors rule, and how different shades count as different colors…but if I was going to use watercolors for my design, would the difference in opacity count as separate colors? Sort of like the Post & Preview buttons below this comment box, would they count as two different shades or would the same color just be printed lighter? Would it be better to use markers and have solid colors instead? I guess that is more than one question, whoops! Anyway, I am very excited about this and thank you to everyone who organized it and is taking time to answer questions!

hippiegrl -June 20, 2008, 11:41PM

what if we arent 18 ..can our parents enter our drawings?

pruittfpgirl -June 21, 2008, 1:39PM

Hey Everyone!
If you are under 18 then you can have your parents enter your drawings for you, but it would have to be entered under your parent’s name, your parents address, etc… You would need to enter it as if your parent had made the design, since legally we are not allowed to have anyone under 18 participate in the contest.
Tasia, I’m pretty sure colors that are less saturated would count as a separate color, just like a different shade. However I’m sorry to say it would probably be better if you did not use watercolors or any less saturated colors as those types of colors do not work very well when using a screen-print. When screen-printing, less-saturated colors do not show up very well, so we would like to try and use more vibrant and saturated colors that will show up on the screen-print. I hope this doesn’t throw off your design idea too much!
Thank you for all your questions, and again, please feel free to ask any other questions you might have!
Good luck in the contest!

Claire -June 21, 2008, 3:37PM

hi, i would love to participate in this contest, but i had a question…
what kind of bag is it going to be printed on? I am excited to submit something! thank you.

kara -June 22, 2008, 3:46PM

i am quite sad that the contest is not open internationally, but am excited to see the results :)
maybe another time.

rita marie -June 22, 2008, 7:26PM

should the design we submit be 11″ wide by 16″ in height or the other way around? it’s hard to make a non-repetitive design work right side up or upside down without this info… thanks!

Jaime -June 22, 2008, 11:11PM

Hey!! First off, ohhhhh myyyyy goddddd am I excited! I work in the Hyman showroom down in Atlanta during markets ,(so this has been a crazy weekend!!!!), and show Free People!!! I got home from market yesterday, (which by the way, the new deliveries are doing amazing and i’m obsessed!!), and read this contest and literally said “YESSS!” out loud to myself, ha ha. So i worked on it for literally 4 hours last night! I’m so pumped!! Free People has been my passion and love since I was in middle school and my mom bought me my first sweater in the Walnut Street store in Philly (which by the way I’ve ripped the lining cause I wear it but I’m not 14 anymore). when your website was like just 10 pictures and read “coming soon” !!!!
Ok, no more ramble…I have a few questions…!!
1. My design is slightly intricate but completely a line drawing, no crazy shading or anything… is that ok?? its 10000% free people! I just want to make sure you aren’t looking for something really simple (although thats not the free people style, in my opinion ha, but someone said today i should just make sure it was ok to make it slightly intricate). so i figure its ready to be safe than sorry!
2. i was also told today that i’ll have a better chance of winning if i turn it in via email. now this person is a die hard “do everything on the computer” person, but i’m an art/fashion major and love doodling and sketching by hand! plus i definitely doubt you’d give the options but favor another. ha, thats not s free people move, ha. I know this is such a stupid question cause i’m sure i know what your answer will be! ha, but i want to win soooooo bad so i’m ask silly questions just in case!!
Sorry my post was so long, but I just wanted to thank you all for your questions and Free People for your great answers and for the contest!!!!! So many of our questions i never would have thought of and I probably would have done (aka shades of colors, never thought of that!). Thanks “Free People” people, ha. and ya, Free People, thanks for the inspiration everyday and this sweeeeeeet contest!! ohh yaaa!

pruittfpgirl -June 23, 2008, 9:52AM

Hello Everyone!
I am so excited to see everyone’s interest in the contest!
Claire – The bags are made of a material called voile. The voile has the design screen printed on it first, then it is cut up and sewed into the shape of our bags. Our bags are used essentially as shopping bags, we give them to customers when they make purchases at our stores and put their newly purchased clothes in it.
Hey Rita! Sorry about that. 16 inches tall, 11 inches wide.
Jaime- I don’t see why your design wouldn’t work. A line drawing should be fine, intricate or no.
Also, email or snail mail, makes no difference. May the best design win!
Thank you so much for all your questions, they are not silly at all!
If anyone has any more questions, please feel free to post them up!

zareen -June 23, 2008, 10:41PM

actully i m really confuse .i made my original bag with color green and blue and submitted but suddenly when i read yor comment section i came to know its only on paper plz help me what can i do now can u use the pic of bag on your blog ..give me suggestion plz i already submitted on uy freepeople @gmail.

pruittfpgirl -June 24, 2008, 10:33AM

I am so sorry! We recieved the photos of your bag and the bag is just beautiful!
It’s true, we are looking for designs to be screen-printed on a bag, therefore we are looking for a 2 dimensional design that would be on paper. But there is still time left in the contest! You could always create a 2-D design and submit it before the contest ends!
Again, I’m so sorry for all the time you put in already, but at least you have a beautiful purse to use, and the time left!

Brooke -June 24, 2008, 7:28PM

Hey there again!!! Well I mailed in my design, i think it may be there by now! I was just wondering if you could tell us how many entries you have recieved so far?? ( And hey, if you’ve seen my design, i’m Brooke Lerma, let me know if you like it! I’m in suspense!!!)
Good Luck Everyone!!

Lindsey -June 24, 2008, 8:36PM

I created my design on an 8×11 piece of paper, however, the design is an all-over print of butterflies that can be copied and repeated multiple times to fit onto the larger bag. Do you think this size may be acceptable?
Thank you!

Kaley -June 25, 2008, 2:08AM

So i did my drawing 11 inches tall and 16 inches wide. I guess I missed that part, opps! so i should probably redo it to have the design on the 16 inches wide and 11 inches tall. or can I turn it in the way i did it? is that considered something i could be disqualified for? i’m just wondering if those are the specific dimensions of the bag pattern or just the space we can take up. i definitely don’t want to make a mistake and get disqualified!

pruittfpgirl -June 25, 2008, 9:35AM

Hello Brooke, Lindsey and Kaley!
Brooke, we have received your entry, and it’s lovely! The dragonflies are so cool! We love all the entries so much! We have posted them on a wall in the office so we can admire them as they come in – everyone enjoys standing at the wall and looking at them all! So far we have received about 35 entries. After the contest is over, we plan to post all the entries on a Flickr account so you can all look at them too! I’ll be sure and let everyone know when that account goes up.
Hey Kaley, you don’t have to redo your design! It sounds like it will work fine. You will NOT be disqualified!
Lindsey, your design sounds totally fine too, especially since it is a repeating design. That will work great.
Neither one of you needs to worry! :) I am so excited to see your designs!
If you or anyone else has any more questions, please feel free to ask them!
Good luck good luck in the contest!!!

heyy me again.. i wanted to know u asked for the age do have to put my moms age cause im under 18

Hello Hippiegirl!
You don’t have to put your mom’s age, but you Do have to have her enter the contest for you. You have to be 18 or older to be eligible to enter the contest, so rather then just putting your mom’s age, you should have her enter the contest for you, under her name, with her address and phone number, etc…
Hope this helps!
Good luck in the contest!
Any other questions please post them on!

I know I’m a day late, but if I get my entry in through FedEx by July 5th, 2008, can I still qualify?
