NEW Collaboration: Veeka x Society6 cycling gloves, tee, mug & tote edition

Happy new year all. We're going to be bringing many new collaboration opportunities to you this year. To kick things off, we're working with our friends over at Veeka.

We're looking for between 1 and 4 artists from Society6 to collaborate with Veeka to create a limited edition series of Veeka x Society6 cycling gloves, a graphic tee, a mug and a tote.

We'll most likely be looking for a toile (repeating pattern) design for the cycling gloves. The graphic tee, mug and tote should utilize your artwork best suited for these product types.

Some things to help you navigate this collaboration:

1. Please click the purple "apply" button only if you will contribute work if selected. You must apply by no later than February 7th to be eligible to participate.

2. If you are selected, you will be required to create designs suitable for each product type that you are selected for within a reasonable period of time (probably a couple weeks).

Again, we'll most likely be looking for a toile (repeating pattern) design for the cycling gloves. The graphic tee, mug and tote should utilize your artwork best suited for these product types. You will not likely be designing for all product types, but only the specific product that your best suited for.

3. You are not required to create new artwork to be eligible, but we will certainly encourage the selected artists to make new art (or at least rarely seen before) for this limited edition.

4. You will be notified via email for inclusion in this collaboration.

5. The gloves will be sold exclusively on Veeka's website http://www.rideveeka.com and Society6.

6. An inspirational statement from Veeka:

As both avid cyclers and designers our team has worked together with various forms to research the intersection between fashion and function. Blending the classic cycle aesthetic of a bygone era with the modern functionality demanded by today’s cyclist allows us to offer a new “classic”.

Updates to follow as we go...thanks everyone.
Collaboration Closed on: February 7, 2014

I'm not that much into patterns, but as a cyclist I find it interesting and I'll give it a go.

That's a very neat idea! I'll go for it!
Patricia Shea Designs commented on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 8:29am
Very cool - I used to design for a bodywear company and love the idea of creating artwork/repeats for template specific pieces - that's always fun and a good challenge!
Isabella Salamone commented on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 10:02am
Cool!
Elryc Bathory commented on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 2:10pm

Lyle Hatch commented on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 8:17am
Is the glove pictured going to be the style that the pattern is applied to?
Josue Ledesma commented on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 9:39am
I'd love to apply, less for the toile, and more for the Graphic tee, tote, and/or mug.
Justin Cooper commented on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 10:03am
@Lyle, the glove style will be different from what is pictured, thanks
Stephanie Gamarra commented on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 12:08pm

pretty cool!
But, how the artists will be compensated?
Mossy Design commented on Saturday, January 18, 2014 12:00pm
sweet, I'll see what happens in the studio today...
Art By Carob commented on Saturday, January 18, 2014 4:29pm
Neato!
Victoria Lasher commented on Saturday, January 18, 2014 8:28pm
Cool fun. My current bicycle designs are my best sellers, and I've been thinking of some new ideas. This is a great incentive to get them done.

I have the same question zansky.
virginia odien commented on Saturday, January 18, 2014 11:07pm
Toiles are a very specific style of art...is the request for an actual toile or for a repeating design? Or a repeating toile? And will all products use a toile or a mixture of styles will be considered for the different products?
La Señora commented on Monday, January 20, 2014 3:41pm
Finally patterns ♥
Justin Cooper commented on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 11:03am
@zansky, as you know, our collaborations are to raise the profile of Society6 artists by opening lots of opportunity for visibility. Neither S6 nor Veeka will ultimately profit from this collaboration as we are making a limited edition which is very costly. However, we can certainly discuss this in detail with whomever is selected to be sure everyone is as stoked on this as we are!
Justin Cooper commented on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 11:04am
@virgina, right now there are no strict requirements for the artwork, but we are thinking that a repeating pattern will lend itself quite well to the product. thanks for the question.
Anime~J commented on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 9:55pm
This is pretty cool :3 Liking this more with every passing second
zansky commented on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 4:24am
@Justin, thanks for the reply ;)
Sarah Price Designs commented on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 9:53am

Vivienne Gucwa commented on Friday, January 24, 2014 9:53am
Love the patterns!

Also, loving the new wall clocks! Very classy!
mindaugas gelunas studio commented on Friday, January 24, 2014 1:33pm
cool
Janss commented on Saturday, January 25, 2014 9:19am
sounds like an idea!
Joseph Coulombe commented on Sunday, January 26, 2014 6:55pm
All bikers should wear gloves . . . to protect their hands while they ride . . .
Adam Charlton commented on Monday, January 27, 2014 8:09pm
interesting concept, to the drawing board!
Stuff. commented on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 4:41pm
Great idea!! I can't believe all the cool things you guys at S6 keep coming up with. Gets me very excited down here in New Zealand!
