New Manufacturer Challenge: BasicGrey!

After taking a break we are ready to start the PubCalls Manufacturer Album Challenge again. This challenge allows you to create projects with a specific manufacturer's products. The resulting album gives designers a chance for their work to be seen by the manufacturer and serves as a resource for others looking for inspirational ideas.

Manufacturer: BasicGrey

Begins: 06/24/07

E-mail your images by 07/10/07

Link for the BasicGrey Album will post on 07/11/07
