Before I begin telling you about our themed competition winners, I first have to give you the low down on the South African music scene so it all makes sense.
South Africa has a huge trance scene. The record label that dominates the industry is Timecode Records. They have an annual outdoor party which draws a crowd of around 5000 people. Their DJs are always in high demand locally and internationally. Springleap had a themed competition to see who could create the official t-shirt for the trance season.
Partying alongside Timecode this season with her winning design ‘Binary Heart’ will be Louise, AKA “Cheez”, from Tinto Designs
Our other themed competition was for rock chick Louise Carver. She has been on the South African music scene since age 15. She is well known in South Africa and is currently making a name for herself in the UK.
She coined the term “organic rock” so we thought we would put it out there to our designers to design a t-shirt for her latest single “Home”. Louise choose ‘Saved by the Moonlight’ as her favorite, and designer Daya Heller will present her design to Louise Carver at her next concert in front of the entire audience.
Shaun from Novolution Studio was the runner up with his designs ‘But I’ve Got to Get Home’ and ‘I love S.A’. So talented! We were really amazed by the quality of designs that came through.
Our next themed competition is for controversial radio DJ, Gareth Cliff and his girls, can’t wait to see what the designers come up with here because the prize will be the very sort after V- festival Tickets.
