If you've ever dreamed of customizing your very own ballin' baseball cap with an awesome and eccentric design, the New Era 'Introducing' project should be right up your alley. The company, recognized worldwide for its famous 59FIFTY hat, wants up-and-coming artists from around the U.K. to modify the traditional cap model to create a unique and bold design. The winner will not only have their design featured on the New Era Introducing site, but will also receive a £10,000 bursary.
Ranging from completely wacky to sophisticated and sleek, the New Era Introducing project submissions are all incredible pieces of artwork. One of my favorites is a steampunk-inspired hat with a moveable cap on a hinge. Check out the rest of the submissions, along with the 2010 winners, to get inspired to submit your own daring designs before the Sept. 7, 2011 deadline.
