Hassle Plague Tapes Design Contest

A summer compilation made for/from the underground


We’re looking out at our community artists and designers to submit ideas for our Summer 2021 Plague Tape design(s). Filled with some of your favorite local artists (so far, Tiberius, Squirrel Flower, Mei Wei, Auden, and more!), we’re creating a fresh batch of classic cassette tapes for your consumption. We did this a few years ago—check it—but the scene has evolved! The underground has risen and we want to dig ourselves an even deeper sound hole.

Although there are no specific thematic guidelines for your submissions, you’ll see below and in the form the general outline for how your submissions should be formatted. (.png or .jpg only please)

here are le specifics you’ll be working with

Here are some themes we’re particularly excited about right now. Feel free to go off of these ideas for the design or create your own wacky art!

We’re looking for weird shit so we can carry it around in our pockets, stuff in our totes, and keep safe in our backpacks. We’re looking for rule-breaking, boundary-bending, creepy-crawling, truth-telling designs to smack on all of our cassettes.

The deadline to submit art is 5/22. We will announce chosen designers shortly afterwards.  Email [email protected] or [email protected] with questions!
