Raw will be commemorating 5 years of work and collaborations tonight at our home Islington Mill Studios. We’ve had over 100 submissions from illustrators and designers around the world, who have created unique pieces of art based on our birthday theme, which will be exhibited and available to buy during the evening. Any pieces that are still available after the event will be available online from tomorrow on raw5.co.uk

All of the profits raised will be donated to the Wood Street Mission www.woodstreetmission.org.uk, offering practical help and support to the children and families that surround our design studio.

Win up to 2750USD in a design competion against the likes of Pete Harrison (UK), Rik Oostenbroek (NL) and Mike Campau (US).

A new lifestyle brand from Finland called UU Theory gathered ten inspiring artists around the world into a friendly competition and promised to pitch in a competing entry themselves. In addition they will select 40 challengers from an open challenge to compete in the final. The task is quite free – besides the format (Horizontal A4 300dpi), the only limitation is that you have to somehow include the brand’s logo in your creation. To make the competition more memorable, all works of the 51 finalists will be compiled into a book.

The deadline for submissions is 24.4.2010.

Download the UU logo and find out more about the competition at: http://www.uutheory.fi
