“Before Life” / Finalists

Last month we launched our “Before Life” project with Poketo and we finally have our finalists but we need your help to choose which one to make into a wallet! Oh yeah, everyone who votes is eligible to win one of the wallets!

We received nearly 300 submissions so narrowing them down was not easy! I picked my favourites, the Poketo team picked theirs, and after some arm wrestling we were left with these 5 designs:

FINALIST #1 – Jessica Fortner (see larger design here).

FINALIST #5 – Alice Maca (see larger design here).

VOTE HERE: facebook.com/booooooom

Poketo will produce 50 pieces of the winning design to be sold alongside the works of 200 other international artists. The winner gets 20 of the 50 limited edition wallets to keep and one of you voters snags a wallet too!

Voting ends Wednesday 9pm PST.

    FINALIST #4 – Andrew Lawandus
    FINALIST #5 – Alice Maca

    I know you said pick one but I couldn’t resist!

    • cool ray – jump over to facebook and vote and maybe you’ll win it too!

  • BAM! Alice Maca says it for me.

  • Max

    FINALIST #2 – Jake Pauls

  • Yoshi

    They’re all great but considering that I’m thinking of legally changing my last name to Xylophone at some point in my life, I think I know who I’ll pick…
