THE DESIGN GENERATOR & INFORMATION PACK
Mesh Mash is a social enterprise that empowers young people aged 12-25 to bring their art to life. Quality limited edition printed clothing, Homewares & accessories are produced from the design studio based in Laverton in Melbourne’s inner west and all profits from sales go back into supporting creative workshop programs and opportunities for young people.
For more information:
Alongside our creative workshops, Mesh Mash is running The Design Generator, a new way to connect for emerging young designers and artists from the western suburbs who are keen to be part of the Mesh Mash story. We are looking for creative young people to develop designs for the Mesh Mash product range that address one or more of the following themes:
1. Natural Environment
Under this theme we are looking for artworks that explore biodiversity; examples include flora, fauna and images of our coastal, wetland landscapes. Works under this theme will be selected by the Mesh Mash crew.
2. Social, Political and Environmental
We are looking for work that responds to social, political and environmental themes which could be expressed in the form of text, drawing, collage, poem or composition of images. Works under this theme will be selected by the Mesh Mash crew.
3. Western Suburbs
The designs can be provided as sketches, collages, graphic compositions or photographs. The design will need to be scaled and prepared to become a one or two colour print.
Tips for creating screen print ready artwork
Use a black pen or marker to create artwork final to create clean and clear lines.
If using collage use contrast for the best positive/ negative balance.
Use appropriate language.
Use your own ideas.
Create a design appropriate/ suitable to our product range.
Create a design within the parameters of the theme (s) nominated or selected.
Limit to one or two colour.
