In 2021 Single O turns 18! And we want to celebrate! However, given the average age of our staff is around 30, that ‘18 feeling’ is a ‘lil hard to truly remember. So, being the authentic brand that we are, we’d prefer to let someone who is living that 18 feeling to tell us what that is really like – through a piece of art. This is an exciting opportunity for an 18-year-old creative/artist to design/create the label for our next limited release 18th birthday coffee.


Your challenge, as part of our vibrant creative community, is to “turn Single O 18” by creating a cracking visual concept in your style conveying what it’s like to be ‘Freewheeling 18’ – that sense of freedom that comes with ‘coming of age’. We want to be transported back to being ‘18 and free’!!


Your field of play includes both the front and the back of the wrap around label. The creative concept can include illustration or any other type of creative visual genre, as well as creative copywriting (the label reverse could contain poem, a statement, a manifesto – it’s up to you!).


Label Design: $1,500, and a year’s worth of Single O coffee to fuel your creativity
(a bangin’ 12 month coffee subscription).

Plus your work will be displayed and promoted via Single O’s channels.
