In the past, Google has collaborated with top fashion designers, including Zoe Jordan, Rebecca Minkoff and Ted Baker, to create exclusive watch faces for Android Wear smartwatches.
This year, Google is asking the creative denizens of the Internet to design its new Fall Android Wear watch face collection.
To celebrate the upcoming fashion weeks, PAPER and Android Wear are sponsoring a social media competition - launching a global search for unique watch face designs. Whether you're a design student or just a fashion lover, this is your chance to free your inner designer. No need to be a computer whiz: snap a picture, sketch on a napkin, play with fabric, paint on canvas… If it inspires you, we want to see it!
PAPER has engaged the services of among the industry's most respected design and fashion experts to judge the designs, ultimately choosing five to be turned into fully functioning Android Wear watch faces, made available for Android and iOS users to download and featured in Android Wear's fall fashion collection.
Our panelists (judges) include the legendary Cynthia Rowley, industry maven Jenné Lombardo, Queen Bey's visionary stylist, Ty Hunter, Android Wear designer Morten Just, and PAPER's own Editorial Director, Mickey Boardman.
The Grand Prize winner will be awarded a mentorship with one of the aforementioned panelists, a dream trip to Paris Fashion Week, and of course, an Android Wear watch.
This opportunity is pretty insane.
