Here’s how it works: Visit the Q Design Contest landing page and download one of the three templates available. Time to get those creative juices flowing! Print the template and paint/sketch on it (you'll need to scan it later), or make this a digital project using your favorite design app.
Submit your design by October 19 and tell us a bit about the inspiration behind it (yes, we’ll be curious!). A panel of judges will pick the top five designs, and after that, it’s up to voters to decide on the winner.
There’s more! We’ll reward ten voting fans with a Fossil Q Touchscreen Smartwatch while the winning designer will also receive a grand prize of $2,000, a smartwatch and their design will be available (to wear) next spring.
Don't let the blank face scare you! If you need some inspiration, Fossil Kin Jamie Chung also created a touchscreen face featuring no other than her pup Ewok (cuteness overload!)! Here's what she had to say about the process.
Who inspired your Fossil Q face design?
MY PUP Ewok! I’m a huge advocate for adoption, and we rescued Ewok a year and a half ago. He’s our baby! I'm thrilled by the fact that when I’m traveling, I can always have him on my wrist. I’m like the crazy cat lady who has to wear the shirt, the watch and socks with their pets plastered all over them. I thought it would be cute to have Ewok's face on the Q smartwatches.
