There’s a 00/30 Darkmode converge up for grabs, for free, if you design a cool & unique yoyo.
This contest is running on Instagram, but because I love the YYE forums you can enter here, too. Download the template at the end of this post, draw your cross-section and type in your specs and special features. Make sure to include notes/sketches of the colorway and any engravings.
Limit one entry per person - submit your best effort only. If you have some ideas you want feedback on, feel free to post those (separate of the template) and I’ll let you know what I think!
If you are a professional yoyo designer you are not eligible.
When I started designing yoyos it wasn’t clear where it would take me. There was almost a year between my first tiny batch of Diffractions and the first bigger run of 60. I always enjoyed talking to the handful of other designers I knew, and one of my dreams at the time was to collaborate with one of them to make something special. The Converge with @opyoyos is the product of such a collaboration.
Now I want to know what your yoyo dreams are. For this contest, use the template in this post and draw a unique yoyo with something special to make it stand out. Then, post it and tag #mk1designcontest and @mk1yoyos.
We’ll pick a winner after October 1st.
Here’s the template:
It includes C-bearing guts, but feel free to erase those if you want to draw something with a different bearing size + guts.
ADDITIONAL FINE PRINT:
You retain any and all rights to the design you submit. This is not a contest where I’ll produce the winning design, the prize is an actual physical yoyo that already exists.
You don’t need to add tags in submissions here since it’s YYE and not instagram.
