WEB/ONLINE: Don't Panic

As I was perusing some other blogs I noticed Lucy Timon had wrote about 'Bag thing' a new free collection of information about gigs, events etc all contained in a brown paper bag and it reminded me of Don't Panic, which follows the same format of being a collection of flyers for gigs, events, shows etc, which is distributed in music shops, clothes shops and cafes for free. What is great about Don't Panic is it is also a great opportunity to showcase illustration and design talent.

The design of the cover of the pack changes every issue and can be designed by anyone by submitting your ideas on the website. Not only can the cover be designed but also an A2 poster is available with each pack that has a different design on each side.

What is great about the website is the design competitions don't stop there, they have a full section dedicated to different competitions for you to get involved in and is also a great way to look at some other peoples reaction to different briefs. There is no specific creative area to stick too so the entries vary completely which is always refreshing. The website also has lots of competitions to win a whole heap of other stuff such as tickets to gigs and events, cd's, clothes etc.. click here to look at what you can win!
