After receiving many, many entries to the NHS Design Competition and with some fantastic responses the judging was incredibly difficult.

We landed on Abbie Hopper's sunflower with the uplifting words of 'you are thriving'. 

The idea of a simple, but cute and impactful motif on a T-shirt portrays many things, positivity, encouragement and hope in a way that is relatable to everyone.

Winning Design Revealed: Abbie Hopper

Abbie Hopper's Winning Design: you are thriving.

Abbie says: 

“For this design, I wanted to create something that would be light-hearted but also get across a message of empowerment and positivity. It came from the idea that you don’t just survive, you thrive! This felt very relevant for not only our key workers but for anyone that could do with a boost of positivity right now.

The flower illustration helps to symbolise the idea of thriving, and combined with the type it creates a fun design that I hope anyone can wear to feel a bit more uplifted!”

Abbie's design is available to pre-order here now

Runner Up: Amala Andrews


When it comes to presentation Amala Andrews did an absolutely stunning job. Whilst sharing the story of her mother who is a nurse and key-worker, which is mainly what inspired her designs, along with the other key-workers including teachers and the fire service. 

Through her presentation, she took us along a journey of where the ideas initially came from, how she pressed flowers from her own garden to the designs she did and didn't like and landing on the final subject which is shown above. 

Amala Andrew's workings and exploration of her final design

For the absolutely stunning way of presenting, Amala is our competition runner up.

Amala says: 

"My design is to say thank you to the NHS and all other key workers, to show our support and love.
The five flowers represent hope, love, loss, healing and new beginnings."

We are looking at working with Amala in the near future.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the competition with your fantastic designs. We will be in touch in the near future to discuss the opportunity to onboard you with our upcoming platform. 

Once again, congratulations to Abbie Hopper and Amala Andrews on their winning designs.

For everyone that entered we sent MDC Gift Cards for them to spend online. We believe competitions should be transparent and fair, and with all the amazing work put in by entrants, we felt it was important to highlight their contribution. 

We will be working with all the entrants in the future.
