…but still we crawl…
We’re looking for a design to celebrate the Wellcome Collection’s ‘Skin’ exhibition, a show that invites the viewer to re-evaluate the largest and probably most overlooked human organ. One of the aspects we are interested in is looking at peeling back the layers of skin to discover what’s beneath – let your imagination run wild with the anatomical workings of your body. Organs, dissections, skeletons, guts, nerves bundles, veins – get your thinking caps on to illustrate what’s beneath our skin and display the internal on the external.
In her own words, Caisa advises: “I’d like it to have something to do with body organs such as hearts, lungs, guts and blood. This is because I think the inside of the body is interesting, beautiful and, sadly, because my dad died from a heart condition a few years ago.”
As well as the pride of knowing your design is tattooed on a stranger’s body, the winner will also win a year’s free membership of the Wellcome Collection Club.
Competition closes on Friday 25 June. For more details, and to submit entries, visit www.dontpaniconline.com/designbrief/skin

“Kelsey Brookes is a former biochemist who attributes his raw style to an education system “that refuses to teach scientists to draw.” He abandoned biochemistry because, “I thought I was going to be there for a few months to get myself some money. Three years later I was left wondering if I had become what I always despised – the funny guy at the water cooler … except not so funny. I was the confused, not so funny guy at the water cooler.” Science’s loss is art’s gain.”
