Hi Storied Hats and Creative Community:

As a small, new-ish hat company, there is not a ton we can offer the world right now. But what little we can do, we’re going to do. Times like this require lots of actions, both big and small.

The independent creative community is going to take a hit over the next few months. We want to do our small part.

If you're an independent designer or artist who recently lost some business (or know someone who did), and want to take a shot at designing at hat and getting your name out there via our platform, we’d love to explore a collaboration that pays you for your design + a percentage of hats sold (if your design gets produced).

Please share this link with any artistic friends and online design groups. Creativity, camaraderie, and everyone doing as much as they can is how we come out of this.
 
 

Hi Storied Hats and Creative Community:

Here's how it will work...

Submit designs by April 19 -- email them to info@storiedhats.com using the template below.

Open voting via Instagram and our website April 22 -24.

Top five vote getters receive $250 each.

You can submit up to three designs. One prize per person.

From the five finalists, Storied Hats selects the design to be produced. The designer will receive 20% of net profits from those hats' sales.

We realize this is not a lot of money for talented artists, but as a small company it's what we can afford to re-allocate at this moment – and we'd rather do something imperfect than nothing at all.

A few notes about design...

While we are style agnostic, we never use words or logos on the outside of our hats.

Emphasis on design that utilizes symbolism to express a larger meaning or story.

You can design the whole hat, including the inside, not just the outside. Here’s some examples of our unique hat designs: (Cactus Sunset, Forest Sky, Pride, Waves).

Designs are fully owned by the designer who submits them. Storied Hats will not produce a design unless there is a written agreement with the designer.

Please use these Adobe Illustrator templates for your design. Using the templates is preferred, but we’ll also take sketches or mockups in other formats if desired. (Note about templates: they can be modified or reformatted to your best use. They are setup as editable vectors. Please reach out if any questions on the files.)

 

Please feel free to share this link, and we’re excited to see all the awesome designs!
