"A picture can say a thousand words.” At least that’s how the old saying goes, which is why we’ve decided to turn it on its head: can you try making an image out of a thousand words? Or even out of a single letter? That’s right guys, for this month’s scarf challenge we’re all about the art of typography.

But hey, this isn’t some simple transcribing exercise: we want you to push typographical creativity to almost unrecognizable limits. Explore the history of the ampersand, delve into intensely detailed blocks of old American newsprint, or study the miniature artworks of Chinese characters – the (typographical) world is your oyster!

This competition is for scarves. As always, don't forget that your print might need to be adjusted to fit the appropriate template. All templates are marked with design specifications to help you get your design just right. Please note that all FRS templates may differ slightly from final manufacturing specifications, so make sure your print is versatile and flexible enough for production.

What can you win?

Each winner receives a one-off immediate prize of 200€ . plus one of their products when it arrives in stock. But that is not all - each & every time we sell 500 pieces of your design, you will receive an additional €200. This means that FRS can continue to embody the spirit of fashion democracy, rewarding our top designs again...and again...and again! We will also conduct an interview with the winner, publicizing their design across the fashion community in Berlin and worldwide.
