A word from our sponsors:

The Print Project

Since our launch in 2017, HÖRFA have always had a strong connection to art, displayed through our popular Printed Streetwear Collection.

Now, for the first time ever, we’re giving you the chance to create the next iconic print, in support of the NHS.

Your design can be anything you want, there are no set themes or limitations. Be inspired by nature, art, people, hope, ambition… your canvas is blank because we want to see your creativity in its fullness.

How to enter:

Visit our website HERE. We recommend submitted artwork is in the ratio of 210x140mm/px at 300dpi in .png or .jpg format. You can go taller than 140mm/px if you wish the design to be square or portrait. If you don’t have design packages or tools available, we recommend as a useful website to use.

Email your design to [email protected] by June 30, 2020, with a few words about the inspiration and meaning behind it.

How to win:

Three finalists will be chosen and unveiled on the official HÖRFA website and social media channels on July 1, 2020.

The winner, chosen by the HÖRFA design team, will receive a £100 gift card as well as the final version of their t-shirt design sent in the post.

The winning design will be sold on with 100% of the profits donated to the NHS.

If you have any questions then please email us at [email protected]

Good luck!
