Work in Progress

This is a creative invitation to all textile designers to leave your work in an aesthetically unfinished state. €6,700 prize pool

This is a creative invitation to all textile designers to leave your work in an aesthetically unfinished state.

Background

The intense smell of the ink is still in the air… Your pencil has just softly touched the paper. Your work is not yet finished, it’s still in progress. That special moment right before your artwork is completed. You can already imagine your final design...it’s almost there!

This is a creative invitation to all textile designers to leave your work in an aesthetically unfinished, incomplete state. Your work in progress is the final result. You are encouraged to leave space in your artwork so it looks perfectly unfinished, even though it’s nearing completion. Your design can combine hand-drawn elements with illustrated details and color highlights. Combine digital elements with sketches. Mash up botanical layers with floral arrangements. Your random splash of color is the DNA that keeps the design interesting and enchanting.

The best designs submitted on jovoto will be chosen and presented to select international fashion brands by the client, who is a renowned textile supplier. In addition to winning up to 5,000€ in community awards, a huge opportunity awaits, to be licensed by a large fashion brand. For every licensed design, you will be paid 100€ for the initial design and an additional 0.20€ in royalties for each meter printed. The amount purchased can be up to 20,000 meters per design.

Be inspired by the previous textile design projects and see all the excellent designs that were created in the Artificial Garden, Chinoiserie-Chic and The Lacemaker!

Textile Orbit – The second challenge!
“Work in Progress” is the second textile design brief in the Textile Orbit, a carefully curated group of the best textile and pattern designers on jovoto. The designers in the Textile Orbit have the opportunity to access this challenge and ongoing exciting textile design challenges in the Textile Orbit.

The client
jovoto and our client wants to revolutionize the textile industry with you! Textile Orbit is not only the first talent pool on jovoto, but also a completely new way of working within the fashion industry, which you will play a part in establishing!

The client is seeking to build up a long-term relationship with you and throughout the course of the project  you will get to know their values, structures and business, piece by piece, little by little.

To establish this relationship, the client wants to enable you to create the best possible patterns based on the latest fashion trends by giving you comprehensive feedback from the fashion market. You will also gain confidential insights into how their business works that will help you understand their complete design process. As soon as a good relationship and a solid process has been established, the client will reveal their identity!

They are super excited about the road ahead and invite you to participate and share your ideas and feedback. Stay tuned for more information about them soon!

Aim

The goal of this project is to gather a wide range of textile patterns focusing on the theme “Work in Progress”. The best designs will be presented to well-known international fashion brands to be licensed and used in their current and upcoming collections.

Task Definition

Create a pattern for the fashion industry’s most recognized brands to be used in their current and upcoming collections. Express your imagination and show us your interpretation of an unfinished artwork based on the theme “Work in Progress”.

Target Group

  • Womenswear
  • Women aged between 15 and 55 years old
  • Summer design
  • Full range of the collection including trousers, shirts, dresses, blouses, jackets etc.

Tonality

  • Hand-drawn and illustrated
  • Pencil-sketched
  • Large-scale elements
  • Random splashes of color
  • Modern
  • Delicate
  • Unconventional

Mandatory requirements

For templates and other details, please check the provided Rotation and digital print dimension, Presentation Template and How to Create a Print-Ready Design Guide Book, which can be downloaded from the ‘Materials’ section.

As we are working with labels in the fast-paced fashion industry, the client will be closely following the project and may select designs that catch their eye at any point (even before the project ends).

Be aware that in order to evaluate the quality of your design for future production purposes, your design will go through a test printing and may be presented to clients. Please make sure you have uploaded the sourcefiles when submitting a design.

There is no guideline as to whether you depict the content with photographic or purely graphic elements. In any case you should only use images and fonts:

1. for which you own the full copyright
2. for which the exclusive rights can, if required, can be passed on to the client.
If 2. applies you need to clearly highlight the third-party image material.

Due to the needs of the client, it is important that the designs submitted in this project are unique and exclusive. Therefore, it is imperative that you state any use of:

  • stock materials
  • open-source materials (created by you or otherwise)

Please note in this project there is a twelve-month exclusivity period in which only the client can license your designs.

Required file formats

To speed up the licensing process, please upload the open layered file in the following required file format when you submit your design:

  • PSD or TIF files at least 150dpi in layers.
  • If the files are bigger than 1GB, they should be  compressed with Win Zip or Win RAR.
  • If you used AI-files, please export into PSD or TIF before upload.

Please note that jovoto will only download the open layered file if the client wishes to test print your design for evaluation purposes.

Halftime Feedback

Dear Textile Orbiters,

We are aiming to create an innovative and unique opportunity for your designs to be sold and produced in the industry. There is an expert team of textile designers evaluating your work and selecting designs based on their expierence of working within the fashion industry.

The goal is to submit print ready designs that the client can present to their clients, which means clean and exclusive designs, that are mainstream and marketable. We want to support you and this innovative process. So let’s hear the latest round of feedback:

Work in Progress

The theme “work in progress” refers to that unfinished look. Unfinished, yet everything is more or less “worked out”. A mix of sketchy lines and colour fields fill your designs to give a general idea where your design is going- it’s almost there but not quite.

The client would like to see more variation in realistic elements combined with sketches and colour washes to flush and fill out the space.

Check out the mood & inspiration board on pintrest and see how your designs look in comparison.

Complexity

Think about the complexity of your design. Can you easily see the repeat? Are you using more than one layer? How does your design work together as a whole?

The goal is to create activating and interesting space. Using layers could be one way, or mixing it up in your pattern another. The client would love to see more tension and experimenting with composition. Check out the How to Make a Print Ready Design Handbook for some tips and  examples.

Design scale and file resolution

If you are mapping your design on a dress, the design will be quite large: therefore you need to provide a higher resolution file.

We added the question in the description area, at which size is your repeat so you can keep this in mind. You can find some measurements in the Rotation and Digital Print Dimension pdf under the Download material.

Clean Work

This is going to be a reoccuring theme!  If you enlarge a pattern, make sure there are no loose pixels floating around. If you cut something out, make sure the edges are completley clean.

This is the most important aspect and could make or break your designs. If you submit a design that looks great but isn’t made well (and it takes the client’s designers more time to clean up your work) there is less of a chance that it’ll be presented in the industry. Show us how you can step up your game!

I keep saying that this is really exciting and that’s because it is. We’re all learning and working to improve how we create together. 

Thank you for your engagement, patience and enthusiams. Let’s rock this and I’m so looking forward to see the designs you come up with in the next (almost) 3 weeks!

I've had problems with the uploads of the source file in the past project The Lacemaker, and wasn't able to upload some of my ideas due to the fact that the thource file had to be uploaded with the jpeg images. Is there another way of uploading the source file?

Hi jupelegrinello, Thanks for your feedback, this is a very important point. We are working to find the best solution for uploading the source files. It's difficult with such large data and varying internet connections, but we're going to optimize the process for you! All the best, Jess

I've had the same problem and only can upload jpg files. Should I continue to do so until we hear otherwise? Also would you like this mocked up on trousers etc to match target group?

Hi there, I'm here to help! You'll need to upload your source file (which is a psd or tiff file) with a jpg. If that's what you've already tried and it's not working, there could be a couple of reasons. You're files could be too big (more than 1 GB) or sometimes the internet connection isn't strong enough and it takes quite a while to upload such a large data file. Once you've checked the file size, and it's still not uploading, get back to me and I can help you upload your source files. And yes, mapping your design on a garment is very helpful! Have a look at the How to Create a Print Ready Design Guide Book for more helpful tips on how to create and present your idea. All the best, Jess

Hi Jess, I'm not able to upload my design. When I post it it says i'm not uploading a source file, which I'm doing, so I don't no what to do

Hi Juana, What kind of file are you uploading? You can send the file via wetransfer to me at jsnidersich(at)jovoto.com. All the best, Jess

Hi Textile Orbiters,

These are exciting times here at jovoto! Working in the Textile Orbit is new for us and we're learning with you every day. Thanks for your support and feedback along the way. We really appreciate it.

You should also be proud of all the beautiful work you've been creating! We certainly are. So with that said, we'd like to welcome you to the second project in the Textile Orbit, Work In Progress. I'm absolutely sure you will rock this one into outer space!

All the best, Jess

I am excited about this project, at the same time is so liberating that need a bit of time to think this one out. :) Good luck everyone!

are the designs you are after for this project primarily floral patterns? I have lots of very expressive but modernist/abstract sketches that I could incorporate into designs... also they have an unfinished quality to them which is quite perfect for the brief. I was just wondering whether to scan and submit them as I notice in the project terms that I would not be able to show them or submit them anywhere else for another 12 months... and all the designs I see that have been submitted so far are floral inspired sketches.

Dear Garth, I know the client is looking for florals, but I will check today in our feedback talk how open they are for other works in progress :) Best, Jess

Hi Garth, The client is more open than to just florals, but it should be in an organic direction. Something very geometric or 'harsh' wouldn't be suitable. Have a look at the moodboard and see if your designs would relate. Hope that helps answer your question! All the best, Jess

Has anyone else had problems uploading in the last couple of days? I had no problems with the Lace project, I managed to upload a design for this project but when I tried to upload an updated source file it constantly times out or gives me error messages. Today I tried to upload a completely new design, at various times of the day, and it just won't work. I am not doing anything differently so can't figure out what is happening.

You can try to achive it as .rar or .zip. I uploaded without any troble a .tiff file archived as .rar. I hope this will work for you too!

Thanks Mariya, they are already zipped psd files and I have had success uploading these files before. The annoying thing is that I have had no issues uploading, suddenly there is a problem. Just now it got to 100% and when I hit save all the files disappeared, very frustrating.

UPDATE: Suddenly it is working! Extreme perserverence seems to be the solution!

Thanks for your perseverence! But don't worry we are working towards a solution where it is not required! Thanks for your patience and perservence :)

I'm about to lose my marbles! For anyone who has no problems - are you uploading the files and then submitting as soon as you see 100% uploaded for the Source file? Every single time, like 7 times at this point, the file uploads relatively quickly but when I hit Submit it claims I still need to upload a source file. Has anyone who has had success but perhaps have encountered this problem before having success have any advice? I tried, PSD, a compressed PSD, a TIFF, a compressed TIFF and a non compressed TIFF bc that file is not over 1GB anyway. I use Mac so using WinRAW which costs money seems strange when I can right click and compress - any help would be soon appreciated!

Hi, I had the exact same problem and i'm using a Mac as well. I tried reducing my dpi( thus the size of the file, i ended up with uploading with the minimum requested which is 150 dpi. maybe try this ? :)

Good suggestion Sarah!

Thanks Sarah - I actually am already working with 150dpi so I;m not sure what else to do. One thing that I think could reduce my file size is the amount of layers - so my next question for Jess or anyone who might know is: how much information should we have in our source file? I have all the layers of my motifs but currently I also have the tile of the full repeat for EACH color way and I'm sure that's having a huge effect on the file size. Should I even have the full repeat tiled out? Should I do it for each color way? Should I use multiple source files maybe?

Hi Generallo, I'm with you on the losing your marbles comment. In the last project I managed to upload 4 different compressed psds (using mac) with no problems. This project I was able to upload one, until I made changes and wanted update my source file, suddenly it isn't working (and the file size hasn't changed). I noticed that even though it says 100% uploaded the thumbnail doesn't update, i.e. the image still looks like the grey and white box you see while uploading. I did a test with a 7mb psd and it uploaded without any issues and the thumbnail did update and show source file and I was able to save successfully. I have a good internet connection so I don't think that is the problem. I am considering flattening my layers too. With all the time wasted on this, plus time to design and comment/rate ideas, then not be able to show your work for 12months I am beginning to wonder if it is worth the effort.

Hi AGenerallo, The files should include layers at min. 150 dpi. You wroe me by breaking up the colors that it worked? That's a great tip! So you managed? Hi mahanidelborrello, I'm sorry to hear your frustrated! We are truely working on a solution to make this easier for you and we really appreciate your patience. Even though it says 100%, you may have to wait a little while. When the file says 100%, wait until it is no longer grey to hit save. You can also send your files to me at jsnidersich(at)jovoto.com and I can upload them for you. The reason there is a 12 month exsclusivity period is because the client is selling designs to big fashion brands and they need assurance that the designs aren't already on the market. We'll be updating you with more info about the client soon and the other licnesed ideas in Chinoiserie. Thanks to everyone for your patience and participation, we're on it working to make the process smoother! Best, Jess

Hi everyone,

Some tips gathered to make uploading smoother: - use the min of 150 dpi if your design isn't going to be scaled up (depending on your design) - separate source uploads for various color ways (thanks AGenerallo) - and even if it says 100% uploaded, wait until the thumbnail is no longer grey before you hit save! It could take another couple of minutes, but when it's not grey, it's fully uploaded (we are working on adjusting percentage bar!) - if you are having trouble, contact me or the jovoto suppoer center at support(at)jovoto.com

Don't hesitate to reach out! We're here to help :) All the best, Jess

Hi, Jess
Do the client prefer to see the REPEAT combine with the pattern layout together ?
: ) Best, Suzie

Hi suzie, I'll check on that in our clients feedback today. Best, Jess

Hi Suzie, The client wants to see your designs! The idea is to create a print ready design, so yes, show us your repeats :) Best, Jess

Wow! Thank you Jess. This will be very helpful ! Will show you and the client a complete presentation for this project ; )
Suzie

Looking forward to it :)

This is going to be so great! The designs are already blooming. ;) Quick question; is the buyer looking for something quirky and unexpected or classic English chic?

Hi Nikky, I would go for a classic floral with an interesting and modern twist like, varying line quality, realistic and sketchy elements and colour washes. Hope that helps answer your question!

It really does help. Thank you very much.

You're very welcome!

hi Jess and the Support team, I'm still not being able to pass the "encoding" step and even tried uploading from 2 different computers. I reached out for help and I'm still waiting on support. Have you guys considered creating an alternative - something like upload first to wetransfer (to a designated email address), get the email confirmation, copy the download link and paste into the submission form to replace the present Source file that gets stuck at encoding for so many of us. Dunno how feasible this is, but it might be an idea :) Thanks. Looking forward to hear from you guys ;)

Hi Ralucaag, Thanks for your suggestion, it's not far off from some ideas we're going over of how to optimise this process for you. We're working on a solution at the moment and thanks for your patience! I'll get in touch via private message now. All the best, Jess

Hey there,

After a long talk with the client, I just posted the latest halftime feedback under the briefing. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me about your designs. I'll also be working on more comments under your ideas. You've really picked up momentum in the last days, keep up the great work!

And I can't forget to mention, we just launched the Textile Orbit's Pintrest page. Extra, extra pin all about it!

We'd love to introduce our very first guest pinner, Breeze Studio- We're so excited to see the inspiration it'll bring and if you'd like to contribute as a guest pinner with your own board, we'd love to have you as the next!

Be in touch :) All the best, Jess

You're welcome - and thank you! :)

Hi Jess, just wondering if there is any naming protocol when it comes to revising ideas. I have made 2 separate revisions to an idea and am wondering what would be the best way make it clear how the idea has progressed or if there is a standard we can introduce so everyone can use the same naming convention? Thanks Mahani

Hi Mahani, I'll think about this with our Project Manager Caro, who is responsible for filing files :) Best, Jess

Also, I just noticed a new section to fill in "HOW BIG IS THE REPEAT IN YOUR PATTERN? IF YOU’RE SCALING YOUR DESIGN ON A LARGE AREA WITH A LARGE REPEAT, KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN CHOOSING YOUR DPI.*" Do you want us to put the size and dpi e.g. ...cm x ...cm at 300dpi

Hi Mahani,

Good question. Some designs have been shown in your presentations at a large scale mapped on a dress, but when the client's designers try to test print your design for that scale, the dpi is too low. That's why we added this to keep the dpi in mind when you upload your source file.

If you are preparing to answer that question, the goal is for all of you to keep in mind- ok, my design is mapped on a dress, so the repeat is rather large at 90 cm (for example), so just I'll have to use a higher dpi. And if there is any problem uploading, let me know!

Does that help answer the question? All the best, Jess

Jess could not understand for rotation printing size should be 60-90cm and 300 dpi and for digital maximum 150x150cm and 150 dpi? or not strange for me that digital less dpi then rotation printer///

Hi irfa, I'm sorry, I don't see where you found those dimensions. Are you looking at the Information for Rotation and Digital Print? All the best, Jess

Yes this is from this document - 2.2File resolution 254dpi = 100Lines/cm 508 dpi = 200Lines/cm (only at very fine elements / contours) 2.3. Screen extent 64 cm (standard all over, most costsaving) 82 cm (not a current standard, limited availability of screens)91,4 cm (primarily for placed desings and borders and - 1. Information for digital print. 150DPi and maximum 164cm So my questions still) is it not mistake -may be 254DPI -for digital printing? and 150 for rotation? Could you see my logic?)

Hi irfa,

For rotation print: smaller repeats you can use 150 dpi and up to 300 dpi for larger scale designs. The fabric size should be as the diagram shows, a width of 140-164 cm (depending on what kind of garment you are designing for) with the height of the roller, either 64 (standard) 82cm or 91,4cm (speciality prints).

For digital print: it should be a minimum of 150 dpi and again, if it's a larger scale design, I would go up to 300 dpi. The fabric size should be as the diagram shows, a width of 140-164 cm (depending on the kind of garment you are designing for) and the height is adjustable (depending on what is needed for the repeat).

Hope that's more clear for you! Best, Jess

Hello Jess! There is a glitch in the uploading facility!

Hi Kashmira, Is your source file getting caught encoding? The developers are aware of the problem and are working on fixing it! In the mean time you can send your files to me at support(at)jovoto.com

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience! Best, Jess

Hey there,

Today we've got some exciting news that our team has been working hard to make happen for you orbiters. Starting on September 11th, we'll provide you with monthly trend forecasts from, Promostyl a leading international trend research and design agency.

As long as you've submitted an idea in the Textile Orbit's latest project (in this case, Work In Progress) you'll receive a 10-12 page trend direction forecast that includes all of the most up to date information on styles, trends, colours and textures.

We wanted to say thank you for working with us in a way that will help you create designs and develop as designers in and out of the orbit! For more details, check out the blog post here.

All the best, Jess

This is absolutely awesome. Thanks :)

Sounds fantastic! Great job!

Exciting! Can't wait to get 'em :) thanks

That is fabulous! Cheers :))

That is an unexpected surprise, fantastic & Thank's :))

Hello Jess, I am have problems uploading an idea.

Hi Liliana Duarte,

What is the problem that you are having? If you explain a bit more I can hopefully help you!

Best, Jess

Hi Jess, I solved the problem already. Thanks.

Hello Jess, I've got to the encoding stage of uploading but it seems to be taking a long time? Is there a problem or is that normal? Thanks.

Hi Zara,

Sometimes it can take a while to upload your idea so please be a have a bit patience. Here's a few tips that can help: Once the percentage bar has reached 100%, wait until the thumbnail isn't grey before you hit save.

If you use AI files, export to PSD or TIF before uploading. Compress files with Win Zip or Win RAR. Files should not be larger than 1 GB.

To make files smaller, separate colour variations and upload as independent files.

Let me know if you still have issues and I will try to help you!

Best, Jess

Thanks Jess, I've uploaded now without any problems. It was actually a problem with my internet connection I think.

Hi guys,

Have you seen that we have a new guest pinner on Pinterest this week? It's Kcauvin (Kerrie Cauvin) and you might have received great feedback from her since she won the "Best Feedback Award" in the Chinoiserie-Chic project.

Kerrie is a print designer with over 10 years of experience located in Sydney Australia and during her week as a guest pinner you can expect pins that show great repeats, interesting placements, design resources and lots of inspiring design and images.

Check out & follow her board here!

And read a quick interview with her on the jovoto blog here!

Best, Jess

Hi Jess I was wondering this morning about why I've not submitted anything to the last two projects when I'd so enjoyed the first two and realised it was because of lack of feedback. Not personal feedback but the client's general feedback as to what they liked and didn't like - what fitted their brief and what was way off (even if good design).

The community feedback is great, but I'm assuming it's not necessarily the same as the client. The assessment criteria is entirely different. And I don't want to be designing things just for my peers to appreciate or not, I want to get on brief!

What I realised I didn't want to do was to spend hours (enjoyably) designing and submitting but then not being able to use them anywhere else for 6-12 months even if it's entirely not what the client was interested in. I want to take them away and redevelop if they're of no present use. Not being experienced in the world of licensing designs I'm ignorant of whether this is unreasonable - but it seems very reasonable to me.

I would find it so helpful to know what was hitting the brief and what wasn't, according to the client's criteria. Then I can learn to understand a brief more clearly (even if they are totally clear anyway!) and develop my work to be more commercially acceptable. Does that make sense, and is it way off to ask?

Many thanks, Anne

I agree with this but for different reasons. I make and license patterns after pattern making full time at work. It's hard to justify spending time on these projects without client feedback. So I find myself rushing the work. This frustrates me and I feel sad because I love the community and briefs.

Hi there, First, thank you for expressing your opinions so constructively. We do understand and see the need for direct feedback from the client. We're actually in the process of developing a feature for the Textile Orbit that addresses exactly this aspect of the processes. It important for you as designers to know what the client wants and it's important for the client that you know what they want so they are getting the designs the are aiming for, a symbiotic relationship. And that's our goal! In order to that, we'd like to develop a way in which you can get direct feedback and know if you're idea is on brief or not. Up until now, we have never had the client giving direct feedback on jovoto, however the Textile Orbit is a new way of working for jovoto and the needs are different. For the time being, we have set up weekly feedback reviews with the client. A lot of the feedback I'm giving, is directly from the client, but to make it more clear, I will write this in my comment. We're learning and developing and we appreciate your talent, expertise and support as we go. Thank you! All the best, Jess

Thank you Jess for working on respectful solutions!

You're very welcome! That's what we're here for :)

I have the same things to say as Anne Reynolds!!

Hi Kashmira, I answered above to Anne's comment. You can find my response there :)

Hi Jess, getting feedback from the client will definitely be awesome! Looking forward to that, and thank you Anne for bringing it up ;)

Coming right up! :) All the best, Jess

Thanks for addressing it Jess :)

Jess you are such a lovely and eloquent direction here on Jovoto. Thank you for all your work and compassion. You're a big reason I'm investing in these projects. :)

Hi Nikky, What a lovely thing to say, thank you so much! I'm happy to be here and support you & the textile community. Have a great weekend :) All the best, Jess

And you're very welcome Anne! Thank you for addressing it as well. We need your support and feedback to develop too :) Have a good one! Best, Jess

Dear Orbiters,

Check your mail! Today the trend forecasting from Promotsyl went out to all the designers in the Textile Orbit who submitted designs in either 'The Lacemaker' or 'Work in Progress'.

Thanks for all your great work!

Have a great weekend and all the best, Jess

PS: If you submit designs in the 'Work in Progress' before Tuesday and want your issue of the trend forecast, just send an email to Olof (our head community manager, who organized this for us- thanks Olof!) at: oekman(at)jovoto.com

That's great Jess, got it :) Have a fab week.

Hi Jess, in relation to the comments above about client feedback, I have been wondering if the designs that are licensed are made public or if only the designer is made aware. If it was public I think this would go some way to illustrating to everyone what kind of designs the client is looking for. I look forward to seeing how Textile Orbit moves forward. It has been fun participating so far :)

Hi mahanidelborrello,

yes they will be made public as quick as the licensing agreements are all done, which they will be very soon, so stay tuned!

Best, Jess

Question about submission logistics: is there a way to SAVE during the process of uploading designs? Let's say - I write and then upload half of my designs - can I save that to get back later and finish the upload? Thank you ;)

Dear Amido,

I am not sure I understood what you mean. But I will give it a try nontheless.

You are flexible in attaching images/files to your idea. You can upload let's say .. half of your work. And then in a few days, upload more updates and then later the rest of your work.

However, the saving process in itself is not technically possible - you cannot "pause" the saving of an image and then come back later to it and finish the saving.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Cheers, Diana

Thanks, Diana - I was talking about the moment where I GET READY TO POST . . . . writing the story to the design, then uploading pictures one by one . . . . it has happened, that I was not ready yet to SUBMIT what I had prepared for posting - had to leave my computer and then a few hours later, I had to start over again, writing and uploading, because nothing was saved yet as I had not submitted it yet. What I do now: I post as soon as I have 2 pics uploaded and the writing done - then go in and upload pics one by one and submit - meaning - I spent sometime 1-2 hours going back editing. So I was wondering, if there is a SAVE function - but I don't think there is :)

Hi Amido,

There is no save function for now. So when you want to upload your idea, I would recommend you to try to do it all in once. Or upload what you got at that moment and then add more images later.

Best, Olof

Hi Jess, I to have a question about uploading. Say I upload my project and a few days later I wish to add to it, say for example another colour option or something else. Is that possible or changes can only be made within the 24 hours of the original upload? Cheers! :)

Hi Ute,

You can add updates & changes any time you wish. The 24 hours frame is only for deleting on your own ideas and/or attachments. After that period of time, you must ask the project guide.

Hugs, Diana

Thanks for that Diana. Cheer & Have a great day!

Could you please give some informations about how many designs/ideas the client will choose?

Hi ru_flair!

There is no set amount they will license each time, it depends on how many of the designs they think they can sell out of all the submissions. In the 'Artificial Garden' project for example, the client licensed at least 18 ideas which will be marked and announced on that project soon. And the goal is definitely to try to license as many ideas as possible of course.

Best, Jess

Thank you Jess for this important informations!

Hey there Orbiters,

I hope you’re wrapping up your works in progress because today is the last day to submit :)

On the last day of our last project The Lacemaker, due to the large file sizes of the source files and server capacity, there was some trouble with uploading your submissions.

We know what a scramble it can be as the time is ticking, so we wanted to mention a few tips to help you upload better before we wrap it up with Work in Progress:

  • Even if the upload says 100% uploaded - WAIT until the thumbnail isn’t grey anymore before you hit save !

  • Delete extra layers and unneeded elements and compress your files on your mac or using Win Zip or Win RAR, etc. Data must be smaller than 1 GB.

  • Separate colour variations and upload as independent files.

  • It’ll go quicker if you upload only a couple of files at a time.

And of course if you continue having trouble uploading on jovoto (which hopefully won’t be the case!) but before you pull your hair out, then upload your files to WeTransfer, and send the link and an email to directly to us at: support@jovoto.com.

In the email please include: Your real name & address A statement that you agree to the Project Terms Title of your design The answers to the description questions & the links to any third party material

*we will only upload files that have been sent before or just after the 17:00 UTC+0200 deadline. Later files will unfortunately not be accepted anymore.

Good luck, internet speed be with you! Best, Jess

Hi there,

One last thing. We ourselves are making the upload manually as well. So, if you send us a transfer, we can make the upload for you only in urgent situations – so, once or twice. Otherwise, please try your best to upload them yourself. :) We appreciate your effort and we are working on making the upload quicker hopefully already with the next Orbit.

Thank you for your dedication and hard work!

Jess

Hi Jess, me and Janina Bourosu have had also a problem with the upload and sent an e-mail with the files before the countdown and I also have sent you a private, long-long message (sorry about that). :( Could you look into it when all the craziness cools down and you have the time? Corina

Hi Corina,

I have replied to your message and we will help you upload your idea, no worries! :)

Best, Jess

Dear Orbiters,

We thank you SO much for your patience! There were quite a lot of technical issues with uploading yesterday, and we are still working on uploading some of your ideas.

If you've sent a file and you don't see it yet, please hold tight, we are working on it! And it will be uploaded latest tomorrow.

Thank you again for your patience and support! Best, Jess

Dear participants, Because there were many late uploads, due to technical errors, we have extended the rating period until Thursday the 24th for a fair chance to view and rate all ideas. We apologise for the inconvenience! All the best, Jess

Last but not nearly least, congratulations to Mariya Vasileva Feedback Award. Thanks for your communication and feedback, making the platform more beneficial and fun to work on!

Great job! I’m still really excited about the potential and all the exciting and beautiful designs here, as we figure out the best ways to work together. Looking forward to continuing!

Have a great weekend :) All the best, Jess

Congratulations everyone for your wonderful submissions! :)

Good job Mariya! Congrats! :)

Wow! Corina you are so nice!

I'll do my best to give advices and tips as much positive as I could. Sometimes it is hard to do a constructive criticism, because I'm aware that the owner could get me wrong (or even get offended). I never intend to do any harm, so please don't get mad at me. :) Why to spare the knowledge when I could possibly help - this is my motivation.

I think you and Janina deserve the praise on the double! ;) Many, many great designs overall and not only the top ones. Can't wait to see what the client has to say about them. :)

Congratulations, dear Mariya! So well deserved! I am extremely happy for you to have received this recognition for your continuous and valuable opinions. I also find it very pleasing that other community members really appreciate your feedback as a valuable one :) Keep up the great work!

I know what you mean dear Mariya about being careful not to offend anybody. :) Also, I wish The Coboat project had a best feedback place so you could get it for being so helpful and kind. It's great to have people like you on the platform :)

Mariya is a great help and designer...well deserved!

Cynthia very kind of you! :) :)

Well done everyone! All around excellent project.

Project terms

The following Project Terms are the legal basis for your participation in this particular project.

In §3 we define the rights that you pass on to jovoto when you submit an idea (for example, that jovoto is allowed to display your idea on the website and that you are not allowed to show your idea anywhere else for 12 months).

In §4 we define the rights that you pass on to the client (for example, that the client is allowed to evaluate or review your ideas in order to help them make their decision). From §4.2 onwards, you find the details about which rights you pass to the client once the project is completed if they decide to license your idea.

In §5 you will find important points on what you will be held responsible for (like respecting copy rights and clearly marking all third party material (including stock and open content material) in your submission).

Project Terms for the Private Project “Work in Progress”
 

1.    Scope

1.1    These project terms supplement the Terms of Use for creatives and apply to private projects in terms of sections 3.1.2 to 3.1.4 of the Terms of Use. Definitions contained in the Terms of Use also apply to the context of these project terms. Private projects may be viewed by creatives in the jovoto.Private layer. All registered creatives in the jovoto.Private layer may submit ideas for such projects provided they accept these project terms.

1.2    By submitting an idea to the project, the creative accepts the terms of use and these project terms.

2.    Right to be Named as Author

By accepting these project terms and the terms of use, the creative waives any right to be named as author if the client wishes this when licensing the creative's idea. As long as the client does not purchase the idea, jovoto will ensure that the creative is named as author.

3.    Granting Rights of Use to jovoto

PLEASE NOTE. IMPORTANT

By submitting an idea to the project, the creative grants the rights of use listed in section 3 to jovoto.

3.1    The creative submitting an idea to a project grants to jovoto non-exclusive transferable rights, without restriction on time, space or content, to use the idea, including associated creative works and any comments submitted therewith to the extent required for the operation of the platform. In particular, the creative grants to jovoto the right to make every comment and/or idea and the associated works on the platform accessible to third parties and to make any reproductions necessary for this purpose. The creative grants to jovoto the right to edit the works in question in order to present them more favorably on the website. The client's trademarks and other related rights may only be used if and when the client explicitly allows this for the performance of the competition.

3.2    The creative agrees not to exploit or use his idea, or to publish it in any other way for a period of twelve months following the end of the submission period, but instead to make it available exclusively and privately to the project in accordance with the terms of these project terms.

3.3    In addition, the creative grants to jovoto the right to make comments and/or the idea and the associated works, within the private layer (exceptionally and with prior consent from the client also in the public layer), accessible for the purpose of presentation beyond the confines of the project, for example in the jovoto newsletter or in its blog, to distribute them and to edit them, in particular to create and present summaries or individual pictures of videos and texts, scaled-down versions of photographs ('thumbnails') etc.

3.4    Furthermore, the creative grants to jovoto the non-exclusive right, without restriction on content, time or space, to use the ideas and associated works in any medium for the purpose of communicating and promoting the project and/or ideas submitted to the project. To this end, jovoto may reproduce the ideas and associated works, distribute, edit, rearrange them, make them publicly accessible, broadcast and publicly play them in other ways, whereby this includes in particular making them available or broadcasting them by transmitting the content to fixed or mobile terminal devices of other creatives as part of automated subscription services (push services) or download services (pull services) (e.g. by podcast, RSS feed, Atom feed, XML interface or other technologies). The parties to this agreement consider the right of public reproduction also to include, in particular, the right to render the idea and associated works on the website using methods to play back audio and video data that can be received and simultaneously played by creatives (streaming), including the possibility of configuring the stream in such a way that the broadcast data can be stored by the recipient. In order to document the project and/or to promote the platform, jovoto may in particular include the creative's idea, alone or together with the ideas of other creatives, in a catalog of ideas, which will be made available to the client on conclusion of a project, and which it may reproduce as a different form of print publication and distribute (including as poster), where this serves as an appropriate form of publication for the platform, present at trade fairs (in particular in the form of banners, posters, video clips), make accessible as "best cases" on the platform, also in conjunction with other projects, or make generally publicly available, include in press releases or make available to third parties in the course of normal public relations work (for example for external press reports in journals).

3.5    In order to secure the greatest possible level of awareness and reach for the creative's ideas, the creative additionally grants to jovoto the right to publish the creative's ideas, and/or to have them published, on websites of external providers, to make the reproductions required for this and to transfer the individual works (i.e. the corresponding files) to the relevant third party, and/or to grant these providers technical access to the ideas for the above-mentioned purposes, including the right to reproduce the ideas for inclusion in their own websites. In order to achieve the aims mentioned in this sub-section, jovoto may use popular technical methods (e.g. embedded functions). The creative therefore consents to the relevant third-party provider adopting the works in question and also publishing them.

3.6    The creative will receive no monetary recompense for granting the aforementioned rights of use to jovoto. In return for being granted the rights, jovoto will present the creative's ideas on the platform’s private layer and will give him the opportunity to sell his ideas to the client (exclusively for a min. of twelve months) or to jovoto and to participate with his ideas in the project.

3.7    In technical terms, the platform is a highly complex system with a large number of links. The content of creatives builds on from different user content and is cross-linked with it in many ways, etc. In addition, as a platform for creative services, the platform must provide a high degree of transparency and traceability – also covering the possibility of investigating or searching through events set in the past. The granting of rights of use in accordance with section 3 is therefore irrevocable and extends beyond any end to the user agreement. Content submitted by the creative to the platform can therefore remain accessible on the platform even after this license agreement terminates or the creative is no longer a user of the platform for other reasons.

3.8    jovoto also endeavors wherever possible to allow the creative every freedom to exploit his ideas vis-à-vis third parties. Within the scope of this project the creative has the opportunity to subject his idea to open content licensing terms (such as Creative Commons licensing) after twelve month’s exclusivity. Whether and to what extent this is to apply in an individual project (including the relevant details) will be specified in the corresponding briefing.

The creative will explicitly indicate the use of third-party materials, including those that are subject to open licensing.

4.        Granting Rights of Use to the Client

PLEASE NOTE. IMPORTANT

By submitting an idea to the project, the creative grants the rights of use listed in section 4 to the client. The granting of rights of use in accordance with section 4.2 ff. is subject to the condition precedent that the client decides to acquire the creative's idea.

4.1    By participating in a project, the creative grants to the client the non-exclusive right of use, without restriction on content, time or space, to present his ideas and works as such outside of advertising campaigns or in order to promote the project, alone or together with the ideas and works of other creatives participating in the project, in any medium. Moreover, the creative grants to the client the right to use the ideas and works for the purpose of internal and external market research and for preparing the acquisition of the exclusive rights of use to the ideas and works. This may require the distributing and making the ideas and works publicly accessible (outside of the jovoto.Private layer), limited to the aforementioned purposes.

4.2    By accepting this license agreement, the creative grants to jovoto, subject to the condition precedent of the client's decision to acquire the corresponding rights from jovoto, rights of use to the idea that the creative has submitted to the project, together with all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, and to elements protected by copyright, design and performance protection rights associated with the idea (hereinafter referred to collectively as "works"), for exploitation in all known and unknown manners of utilization, in particular to the extent detailed below. This includes in particular – also in cases where rights arise at a later date – the exclusive, transferable right, unrestricted by content, time and space, and capable of being sub-licensed in parts, to reproduce the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, irrespective of whether for payment or not, to distribute them, exhibit, rent out, to publicly render, in particular present, perform, display, make publicly accessible, broadcast, relay via cable or other systems (cable rebroadcasting), reproduce through video or audio medium, to make public via screen, loudspeaker or any other technical device, programs already broadcast or recordings made on the basis of public transmissions or to reproduce in any other intangible form, to edit and rearrange as well as to publish and use any such edited or rearranged form.

4.3    The aforementioned rights of exploitation for commercial or promotional purposes include in particular:

4.3.1    The right to reproduce the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, in any tangible and/or intangible, digital or analog, form, e.g. through reprography or transfer to analog media (e.g. packaging, promotional material, advertisements, placards, books, stickers, printouts, pictures, illustrated books, books, comics, leaflets, flyers, photographs, photocopies, photo-mechanical processes, posters, magazines, newspapers), through digitalization or any other form of digital storage and to temporarily and/or permanently store on any other known type of data, video and/or video/audio media such as diskette, DVD, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, HD DVD, Blu-ray Disc, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, CD-Audio, Super Audio CD, audio cassette, vinyl record, MMC, SD, MS, MS Pro, Flash Card, Smart Card, Secure Digital Card, memory stick, MiniDisc, DAT, hard disk, server, proxy server, USB stick and/or via transmission in the Internet or other data networks or through transmissions or in database systems; in particular this also includes the right to use the idea and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea for company-internal and -external presentations, in company-internal media such as intranet, PowerPoint presentations and for the creation and distribution of advertisements in print media and in electronic, especially online, means of advertising;

4.3.2    The right to distribute or put into circulation the idea and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea in any known way and on all physical analog and digital media independently or in combination with other works, especially in support of a product, and/or to offer these to third parties, in particular to rent and lend out irrespective of the distribution channel and the embodiment, in particular through distribution of the idea and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea on the aforementioned digital or analog media via wholesalers, resellers or retailers, mail order and irrespective of whether by remote sale, electronic transaction, free transfer or free distribution;

4.3.3    The right to transfer the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, in any known technical manner and to make them known, and in particular accessible to the public. This includes, in particular, the fact that the idea and the associated works may be stored in digital form in a data processing system from which they may then be retrieved by third parties 'on demand' as a stream or download or any other form as digital signal via wired or wireless media and/or transmitted there with the consequence that the stored data are transferred to the receiving device of the third party where they may be decoded after storage, intermediate storage or immediately, i.e. converted into text, images and/or sounds and made visible or audible. The idea and the associated works may also be made available to the third party in such a manner that he/she may store the idea and the works contained therein and/or parts thereof in his/her receiving device and may access them there repeatedly. Interactive use by way of on demand is characterized by the ideas stored in digital form being made available to members of the public who are not present at the source of where they are made available, and being made available in such a way that members of the public have access to them and can request their transmission at independent times and places even if transmission of the works to third parties takes place at a later point in time than at the one requested. The online right of use exists independently of the form of transmission chosen by the client or his licensees for the use of the protected material and includes, for example, interactive or non-interactive online systems, electronic databases, the Internet, the World Wide Web, social networks and platforms such as YouTube, Twitter, XING, Google+, LinkedIn or Facebook, Apps, IRC or news, file sharing or application service providing;

4.3.5    The right to publish the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, first in any desired form at the point in time of the client's choosing irrespective of whether on any type of tangible media or in intangible form (e.g. on the Internet), irrespective of whether independently or in combination with other content such as a collection or multimedia work or as part of an encyclopedia;

4.3.6    The right to commercially exploit the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, through the manufacture and sale of goods of all types (e.g. dolls, toys, stuffed animals, sports articles, household, bathroom and kitchen items, garments, printed matter including comics, sound storage media, headgear, buttons) and/or to exploit the media listed and described in this sub-section, the marketing of services of all types using the circumstances, names, titles, figures, illustrations or other relationships related to the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, including the right to exploit the idea fully or in part through the production and sale of games/computer games, including interactive computer games, and/or other multi-media productions and/or other forms of work and to promote goods and services of any kind using such elements or through edited or unedited excerpts from videos ("merchandising right");

4.3.8    The rights granted exist irrespective of the technology used as the basis for the use of the right. In particular, the granting / transfer of rights of use are not bound to the form of data transmission (analog or digital), to the means of data transmission currently used or to the type of end-user receiving device. The client is especially entitled to allow this access via any type of equipment or device that is technically able to call up and /or represent the content provided. Access can be effected in particular with the aid of fixed devices (e.g. personal computer, set-top box for digital TV or Internet terminal) and mobile terminal devices, especially mobile telephones (via WAP, SMS, i-mode and any future standards), smartphones, electronic organizers, so-called personal digital assistants (based on operating systems such as Stinger, EPOC, Palm OS, Windows CE/Pocket PC), in particular via wired connections (telephone networks, TV cable networks, ISDN, DSL, Internet fixed line, etc.), via wireless connections (wireless local loop, satellite, radio [in particular DVB-H], mobile telephone networks [GSM, CDMA, HSCSD, GPRS, 3G, UMTS], wireless LAN) or in the process of synchronization with other electronic devices (e.g. via cable and network connection, Bluetooth or infra-red) and on the basis of various transmission standards and presentation formats (e.g. TCP/IP, SMS, MMS, EMS, PMS, smart messages, DVB, HTML, WML, cHTML, e-mail) in all online services, data and (tele-) communications networks, in particular the Internet.

The client is to be able to use the idea fully and exclusively and to exploit it commercially, in particular for advertising purposes and across all media.

4.4    In addition to, and above and beyond, the above provisions, it is agreed that, if the creative has created a computer program, only the client will be entitled to exercise any proprietary rights to the computer program after the transfer of rights by jovoto.

4.5    Following the transfer of rights, the client is entitled at its own discretion and without the separate agreement of the creative, to transfer the rights listed in section 4 to third parties or to allow third parties to exercise such rights irrespective of whether in the original form or in an edited form. This applies independently of the content and scope of the license terms agreed with the relevant third party, i.e. irrespective of whether through the transfer of the exclusive right of use or through the assignment of individual or several fully inclusive or non-exclusive rights of use limited with regard to content and/or time and/or space.

4.6    The above provisions also apply in the event that the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, have been combined with third-party protected material. If a collective creative work with shared copyright ownership has resulted from the combination of the works with other protected material, the creative herewith agrees to the exploitation of the collective work to the extent specified by the above provisions.

4.7    The use of material covered by open access or open content licensing terms for the development and creation of the project idea is prohibited, irrespective of whether this is done by the creative or third parties. The creative warrants that he will not use such material.

4.8    The idea will also remain visible on the platform even after being sold to the client. It will however be marked as sold ('Client's Choice').

4.9    The creative waives his right to be named as author in the exploitation of the idea. jovoto will work towards persuading the client that the creative's authorship should be acknowledged as author and that he should be named as such in accompanying material in cases where it is not possible to achieve such mention on specimens of the work.

4.10    Where the creative has used material and/or works of third parties in the course of developing and submitting the idea (for example photographs from publicly accessible databases, fonts, sample texts or similar), he also grants to jovoto and to the client rights of use to this third-party material and to these third-party works in accordance with the provisions of section 4.10. The sole exception to this are those parts of the idea that have been identifiably used for illustrative purposes and are marked as such components used solely for illustrative purposes and are explicitly titled as "SAMPLE" or "SPECIMEN" in the idea. Third-party materials and third-party works that are not marked as such will be treated as if they were the creative’s own works.

4.11    The condition precedent for the granting of rights in accordance with section 4 will be deemed to have been met when the client has made the decision to acquire the rights to an idea of the creative as specified in section 4, the client has informed jovoto of this in writing and jovoto has accordingly informed the creative in writing. jovoto will grant the license rights to the idea to the client immediately after the condition precedent becomes effective and the creative has been informed.

4.12    jovoto will immediately inform the creative in writing in cases where the client desires a direct license of rights from the creative. The creative and the client can then reach an agreement on the scope of the rights granted – if necessary with jovoto as mediator. jovoto will provide a specimen agreement on request.

4.13    The granting of rights of use in accordance with section 4 remains unaffected by the termination of the contractual relationship between the creative and jovoto and the underlying terms of use.

5.        Creative's Guarantee, Indemnity

5.1    The creative guarantees that he has developed all ideas, and works associated with the ideas together with the individual elements, himself, and that he is the owner of all rights that are necessary in order to grant the rights of use in accordance with sections 3 and 4 and to meet any other applicable conditions. The creative also guarantees that his ideas and associated works are free of any third-party rights.

5.2    The creative also guarantees that he will not submit or offer any content, in particular ideas or work samples, that encroach upon the rights of third parties or where content is ineligible in accordance with the above provisions. The creative must check whether his ideas and the associated works infringe the rights of third parties. Indications for such contractual infringements are given when, in particular,

5.2.1    Works subject to copyright, e.g. graphics, videos, photos or text (even when edited or alienated, unless the original can no longer be identified), are used that were not created by the creative himself;

5.2.2    The ideas contain performances subject to copyright or related rights such as live recordings of concerts, plays, circus performances, etc., or parts thereof, or include other performances protected by other related rights such as television programs (including opening and closing sequences);

5.2.3    Third parties have collaborated on the production of the content in such a way that they are able to acquire ancillary copyright, for example for recording, direction, editing, sound engineering, camerawork, etc. unless the persons in question have agreed to the exploitation of the idea created with their collaboration on the platform;

5.2.4    The content includes personal or other sensitive information about individuals or groups of people, unless the necessary consent and/or exploitation rights have been obtained by the creative;

5.2.5    Third parties are portrayed in photographs or videos in such a way that they play a major role in terms of their significance for the photo/video, unless the creative has obtained their explicit consent to the scene and to the exploitation of the results on the platform.

5.3    The creative also guarantees that he is not prevented by any contract of employment or other such agreement from contributing the relevant idea and participating with it in a project.

5.4    The creative will indemnify jovoto from any claims that third parties may assert against jovoto for infringement of their rights as a result of the ideas submitted by the creative. jovoto will inform the creative of any such assertion in writing immediately. The creative will make every effort to support jovoto in preparing a suitable defense. The creative will assume all costs incurred by jovoto in this connection, including reasonable costs for a legal defense. The creative is entitled to prove that the actual costs incurred by jovoto were lower than those claimed.

5.5    The same applies in the event of claims asserted by third parties when the creative infringes legal positions of third parties, in particular trademark rights or personal rights, or other legal provisions (such as prohibitions contained in the Act Against Unfair Practices – UWG) through the subject of the content, irrespective of the authorship thereof.

6.       Deliverables

IMPORTANT: By uploading your idea, you are declaring that, if your idea is selected by the client throughout the project for test printing in order to evaluate the design or within twelve months for licensing, you are able to deliver the open data for your textile design. To speed up the licensing process we ask you to upload the open layered file in the following required file format when you submit your design:

  • PSD or TIF files at least 150dpi in layers.
  • If the files are bigger than 1GB you have to compress them with Win Zip or Win RAR.
  • If you used AI-files, please export into PSD or TIF before upload.
