Style Your Smart – Design Contest

Do you love to design things? Or you just want to have fun with an online platform and evaluate, comment or discuss designs with others? You got it! In this contest you can create your cool smart fortwo exterior design! We invite you to take part in this contest and inspire you to open your mind for your creative designs.

Many good things come in small packages and the ‘smart fortwo’ is no exception. Its revolutionary design conveys innovation, functionality and joy of life. ‘smart fortwo’ is an expression of individuality. The ‘style your smart’ design contest is an opportunity to graphically display ideas for creative exterior design(s) for the ‘smart fortwo’.

These designs could some day be applied via foil. Thought starters for design themes can be but are not limited to … environment, family, puzzles, animals, graffiti, art, urbanization, technology, sports … YOU decide, YOU create, YOU should have fun doing it :)

Objective

The ‘style your smart’ design contest aims at helping to identify exterior graphic themes and motives that YOU and/or others like. The designs and themes could be used to inspire future smart fortwo exterior; instead of another color there might be gallery type graphic themes to choose from or even the possibility to have your own theme and graphics. The submitted design will not be produced in series without the submitted person’s approval. However, Daimler AG reserves the right to realize this contest’s designs as prototypes; this might or might not include modification of the submitted designs.

Prizes

All submitted designs have the opportunity to win cash prizes amounting to a total of  €5,000 and much, much more publicity and exposure… No purchase necessary. A purchase will not increase your chances of winning. The best three designs are influenced by the star-rating and number of votes. Ultimately, a professional jury will decide who the winners are.

  • Design First Prize: €1,500
  • Design Second Prize: €1,000
