Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket Design Contest

This contest is now closed.

We're looking for an exciting design for our first aromatherapy diffuser locket. If you have an idea for a locket design, enter it in our design contest for a chance to see your creation become Stimtastic's newest piece of jewelry!

What is an Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket?

An aromatherapy diffuser locket is a small hollow pendant with a cutout design on the front and space inside to hold a felt disc. When essential oil is applied to the felt and the felt is placed in the locket, the scent wafts out of the partially open front of the locket.  Here is a visual example:

The Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket Design Contest is open to all. Here's how to enter: 

  1. Create a 2-dimensional black and white rendering of your idea. 
  2. Submit it by email by January 16, 2018 with the subject line "Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket Design Entry". 
  3. In your email include: your full name, the name of your design, and a statement saying that you have read and agree to the contest entry guidelines below (you can copy this if you like: "I have read and agree to the Stimtastic Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket Design Contest guidelines posted at Stimtastic.co.").

Contest Entry Guidelines: 

  1. Download the design template and save it to your computer. Do not alter the template dimensions (30mm x 30mm at 300 dpi). 
  2. Using the design template, create your design in black and white. 
  3. Use black for the negative space (areas that will be cut out) and white for the solid areas (areas that will be stainless steel). Using the sample design above, all areas seen as dark purple in the photo would be black and all areas seen as silver in the photo would be white.
  4. Your design cannot have any solid areas suspended in negative space. All solid areas must be attached to another solid area. For example, no white dots surrounded by all black.
  5. Solid black and white symbols only. No grayscale, feathering, shadows, groupings of very narrow lines, hatching, shading or other areas of color that are not solid.
  6. Your submission must be a computer rendered graphic image. Hand drawn images are not eligible. 
  7. Submit your design as a .jpeg or .png file. 
  8. Your submission must be your original idea. No copies, derivatives or otherwise modified versions of copyrighted work. 
  9. You must be willing to give Stimtastic exclusive permission to reproduce your design as a diffuser locket for sale by Stimtastic in perpetuity.

Additional design notes

Use the template as your guide for sizing and proportion. You can fill the entire area - a border around the edge of the locket will be added automatically in the manufacturing process and your design will be fit into the usable space on the face of the locket as shown in the example photo.
