Vinyl Pulse x Great Twins – Great Merlion Figure Design Contest
Hi all! Vinyl Pulse is happy to partner with Great Twins to bring you the Great Merlion Figure Design Contest. This is your chance to have your inspired, awesome, and eye-catching design included in an upcoming 2” Merlion mini series! This new platform figure is inspired by Singapore’s national icon – the Merlion, part lion, part sea creature. If you’ve got great ideas, would love to have your design appear on a production vinyl figure, and are able to express that design using Adobe Illustrator, this is your shot at toy immortality. Read on for all the details. The deadline for submissions is June 30th, 2018 at 11:59 PM PDT. Good luck!
