In collaboration with Booooooom.com, Poketo is launching its first-ever open call, wallet design competition. Artists and designers are invited to submit graphics inspired by the theme, “Before Life”. Selected submissions will be entered into a final voting competition and the winner will be featured on poketo.com and booooooom.com along with the wallet being sold among the works of 200+ international artists on poketo.com.
Start designing and submit! Show us, what does your “Before Life” look like? What did the world look like before we all got here? Did it have a lot of color? Did it ooze with neon? Did that primordial sludge really look quite handsome? Design it in a 300 DPI, 8.75″ width x 4″ height and submit to Poketo. Deadline is July 3, 2011.
Complete rules and submission details at: www.poketo.com/blog/2011/06/20/poketo-x-booooooom-x-you/. Check out the other submissions at www.facebook.com/poketo.
Born out of a belief in “art for your everyday,” Poketo is an online destination for design-driven wares that take art off the gallery walls and into people’s lives.

Over the years, Poketo has been commissioned by Nike, MTV, SF MoMA and, more recently, Target to create exclusive lines stamped with Poketo’s signature fun and functional style.
To date, the shop has collaborated with over 200 international artists to produce lifestyle wares that infuse art in daily living.
