Creative Brief

June is LGBT Pride Month and events will be held across the country to celebrate hard-won victories, shine a light on current fights, and to commemorate the Stonewall riots. With marriage equality now the law of the land there is a lot to celebrate, but there are also attacks on the LGBT community everyday that require persistent vigilance.

For this month’s challenge we're seeking Pride posters & t-shirts that celebrate LGBT rights and victories. Proceeds will support Courage Campaign, an online community powered by more than one million members, instrumental in the fight for marriage equality.


Your Design Should:

  • Celebrate LGBTQ rights
  • Be tagged with "LGBTQ Rights" and/or "Marriage Equality"
  • Have a simple, single-color background.
  • Be a vertically oriented, 12" by 16" RGB image at a resolution of 300dpi (3600 by 4800 pixels) that is a JPG or PNG
  • Keep a safe area of at least 1" on all sides (don’t place text too close to the edge)
  • Include an apparel file that is layered or includes a transparent background (AI, PSD, PNG, TIFF)

Submit Your Design(s) Here
