When we introduced our latest fragrance, Brooklyn, last month, its breakthrough street-art surface design brought praise and a barrage of responses. Well, we already knew that aficionados of the borough of Brooklyn can be opinionated. But so many strong opinions reached us about what a Brooklyn bottle could look like that we realized we’d better offer more options if we knew what was good for us.
So throughout March 2009, Bond No. 9 invites everyone—amateurs and artists alike—to join our Brooklyn Bottle Design Competition and create additional visuals for this contemporary male-oriented cardamom-cedarwood eau de parfum.
Create your design to fit within the outline of the Bond No. 9 superstar flacon and to include the circular “token” logo. You will need to download the image of the bottle from the Bond no. 9 website (I can't find it there now; if anyone can find the direct link let me know).
You can use any style, figurative or abstract.
Inspiration can come from anywhere in Brooklyn—DUMBO, Park Slope, Flatbush, Canarsie, Midwood, Bay Ridge, et al.—or from the very idea of Brooklyn.
Any medium is okay: oil, acrylic, watercolor, house paint, pastel, crayon, Magic Marker, makeup—even a ballpoint pen or pencil will do.
Submit your completed design to email@example.com by March 31, 2009. The two winners will see their designs put into production with their names on the bottles, and will each receive one bottle of Brooklyn every month for a full year. (via press release)
