Shapeways Bathroom Signs Contest

Our Factory of the Future in Long Island City has been under construction since October and we’re getting close to the finishing touches. As well as being the place we create your models, we want the Factory to be a showcase of your talent too!

Ben, our Lead Industrial Engineer explains our latest contest:

We’re thrilled to announce that multi award-winning designer and typographer Craig Ward, will be our judge. His work blurs the lines between typography, illustration and installation and he has done some incredible projects. We know the the possibilities of 3D printing let your imagination run wild, so he’s the perfect partner to judge our contest.

To help you out with some inspiration, head over to Craig’s website or check out his book, Popular Lies About Graphic Design. The prize? $200 in Shapeways printing credits and eternal fame as your design will live forever in our factory.
