Lauremont School Design Challenge

 

As TMS transitions to Lauremont School, we want to engage our students in our new branding. We are launching the Lauremont School Design Challenge to all students from CH2/3 to Grade 12.

Children's House 2/3, Elementary and Upper School students will have the opportunity to design funky and fun socks, while Upper School students also get to design their own ties.

The challenge will launch Friday, February 2 and end at 4pm on Tuesday, February 20.

Winners will be announced prior to March Break.

Submission Criteria

 

A good competition comes with exciting instructions (of course!), and this competition is no different. Be sure to create your designs following the criteria below. 

 


Criteria

Students can be creative as they like but need to follow these criteria:

  1. Only new school colours can be used in your designs. Please see the right column for the colours you are allowed to use in your design.
  2. Make your designs abstract, without the use of text and logos. 
  3. Do not include fine/small details in your design.
  4. The socks and ties need to convey either:
    • joy, fun and positivity OR
    • the concepts of curious, connected and compassionate.

Please note that we will include the Lauremont School Logo on both the socks and ties when they are created. The approach is outlined in the templates. 

Lauremont School Colours

Please only use the following 7 colours in your designs:
