In an ode to innovation and a look at how artists and designers can enhance the experience of millions of its users across Europe, Huawei has launched a new programme that has many excellent prizes up for grabs, as well as the chance to get some global recognition.
The Empower Designer Incentive Programme welcomes entries from anyone in the creative industries, no matter their discipline, to create Themes and Watch Faces for Huawei Themes, which allows Huawei's users to customise their phones and watches with your art and design.
The first top 100 participants are guaranteed to win a Huawei device, such as the Huawei P40 Pro or Huawei Watch GT Pro. There'll also a monthly leaderboard running through to June for the following three categories, with the top three winners in each winning a Huawei device. Categories include the monthly designer with the most uploads, the monthly most downloaded paid theme and monthly designers with the most uploads of new paid watch faces.
Meanwhile, for some inspiration, here are some recent Huawei Themes designed by Cambridge-based illustrator and lettering artist Grace Frösén and Polish/German illustrator Maggie Stephenson as part of a commission with Typespire.
