- Conversational Atmosphere
- I’m Going to Tell My Friends About This Place
As I describe in my Shareable.net article "Real People, Real Places," television is taking over our bars, cafes, and restaurants.
But not everywhere: Some just say no to television, and I think we should give them our business and tell them why we’re giving them our business. That’s why, in the course of writing the article, I devised a polite little invention called the Dollar Hollar. The idea is very simple; it just needs a great design!
That’s where you come in. If you’re a graphic designer, illustrator, artist, or student looking for exposure, extreme service to society, and a little cash, why not enter the Real Places Dollar Hollar Design Contest?
Can you put this text (or text like it; feel free to modify) on an awesomely designed paper form that folds perfectly around a dollar bill with the first line of text showing at the top? Wanna help reinforce media-free Real Places by making sure the management knows they got it right?
Send your a PDF of your design, along with your name and contact information, to jeremy (at) shareable.net by May 1, 2010. It can be a scanned hand sketch, or something more elaborate–we’ll know a good idea when we see it!
And, please spread the word of this contest to people who might enter!
