We want you to design a new Helpful Hacker sticker for the Envato Community!
Note - the above image is our current Envato Market Helpful Hacker badge - your design doesn’t need to look like this one, though!
What we’re looking for
Your mission is to design a Helpful Hacker sticker, ready to adorn the laptops of our intrepid bug hunters around the world. Our Engineering team will be sending out sticker prints of the winning design when we thank people for successfully identifying and reporting software bugs in our products.
Here are some winning entries in previous design contests to give you an idea of the standard we are looking for!
- 2019 Envato Community T-Shirt by RautanStudio
- 2018 Envato Community T-Shirt, also by RautanStudio
- Envato 10th Anniversary T-Shirt by WonderArt
- Moderator T-Shirt by TrueNorthStudio
- Envato’s 404 Error page, designed by kotulsky
How to Enter
- Create a sticker design to thank the tireless bug finders who search for and report issues with our sites.
- Your design must be in a scalable vector format that you can share with us (.eps, .ai, or .psd)
- We anticipate printing these at around 50mm x 50mm, but exact sizes will vary depending on the final design.
- If we ever use this design on garments, we’ll be printing digitally - so you can use colours and gradients however much you like! No screen-printing or spot colour restrictions here.
- Your design can incorporate the Envato logo if you wish - you can download a copy here!
- You may use the leaf element of the Envato logo by itself, or you may use the logo in its entirety (leaf logo + “envato”.) For more information on logo branding usage, please see here.
- Post a JPG version of your design in our official forum thread.
- Keep a copy of your source file! We’ll need to contact you to obtain it if/when you win.
- Only one entry per person please, so please submit your best work!
- Please read our full Terms and Conditions (see below).
