Creative Allies’ worldwide network of artists has been hard at work on a variety of exciting design projects, and now that a fresh slate of contest winners has been announced, it’s time to bask in the fruits of their labor! This batch is headlined by poster designs for UK buzz-band The Kooks and the Wounded Warrior Album Charity, which is releasing a compilation CD of singles from Athens, GA-based artists to raise money and awareness for disabled veterans. Take a look at all the winning artwork below!


Creative Allies also launched new opportunities with musicians Susan Justice and the Robert Glasper Experiment as well as The DigiTour, the first national tour featuring some of most popular musicians on YouTube. Meanwhile, several other existing contests are nearing their deadlines, including poster design opportunities with Yelawolf and Bassnectar, an album cover design contest with The New Assembly, and more. All in all, aspiring designers have plenty to work on moving forward!
