    The design challenge keeping creativity flowing during lockdown

    Parkside Architectural Tiles has launched a lockdown challenge, asking designers to create innovative tile designs…

    We have all seen – and probably have been nominated to take part in –the various challenges that are currently doing the rounds on social media. From the 5K Challenge to the Hospitality for Heroes Campaign, each hashtag has a purpose that goes further than taking a selfie for ‘The Gram’.

    Hotel Designs has identified a new creative lockdown exercise for the design community that will keep the creative juices flowing during lockdown.

    Parkside Architectural Tiles, which only a month ago was on display at London Design Week, has launched the Lockdown Tile Design Challenge. Have you always wanted to have your own tile design produced but never had the opportunity? Well now’s your change, as the three winners will get their tile design printed onto a 15x15cm tile.

    Submit your entry by 5pm (BST) on May 8, 2020

    The three categories, which will be judged by three guest judges and Parkside Architectual Tiles’ very own sales and design directors Richard France and Mark Williams, are:

    Category one – Freestyle
    Guest judge: Charlie Luxton
    Let your imagination run wild – anything goes (Parkside’s words, not ours).

    Category two – Geometric
    Guest judge: Kirsty Thomas, Tom Pigeon
    A trend that isn’t going anywhere soon, geometric tiles continue to rein on the commercial interior scene. This is your change to show off your creative edge in a category that is all about shapes.

    Category three – Colour 
    Guest judge: Vanessa Konig, Konig Colours
    If you are mad about colour and colour combinations, then this is the category for you!

    How to enter

    1) Create your design either by hand or electronically, making sure it’s in a square format
    2)Submit your entry via Instagram DM or via email by 5pm on May 8, 2020, specifying which category your are entering

    Top tips: Your design can be colour or monochrome, although Parkside Architectural Tiles has suggested using colour in the colour category. Each design can be entered into more than one category and you can enter more than one design. The winner of each categopry will be decided based on a combination of judges and Instagram votes. The Instagram vote will take place from 9am (BST) on May 14, 20. The winners will be announced on May 17, 2020. Good luck!
