Ocean Purpose Project X Epic Water Bottle Design Competition
What do you need to do?
Ocean Purpose Project needs creative volunteers to help them come up with a bottle design that fits the theme of Ocean Purpose Project. This is open to everyone, both professionals or budding designers with no minimum age requirement.
We commemorate World Water Day (WWD) annually on 22 March & this year’s WWD theme is “Valuing Water”. Water is a valuable resource that allows us to function daily, spend time with our loved ones and achieve our goals.
What should you consider when designing the bottle?
Ocean Purpose Project is a social enterprise that tackles ocean pollution and marine conservation through :
1) Plastic to Fuel
2) Seaweed & Mussel Bioplastics and
3) Behaviour Change.
Though Ocean Purpose Project is based in Pasir Ris, their projects have implications around South East Asia and beyond.
What do you think Ocean Purpose Project represents visually? Look at Ocean Purpose Project logo for instance.
What do you see? A whale? A plastic bag? When Ocean Purpose Project logo was designed, they wanted it to represent both the problems and solutions around marine life- oftentimes two sides of the same coin.
Get creative and play around with their logo, motto & cause! Bring in other ideas into your design because we cannot wait to see what you have in mind. Check their socials to see the work they have done:
Why Epic Water ?
The UN estimates that 790 million people across the globe do not have access to clean drinking water, while 1.8 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation due to industrial and agricultural pollutants; all of which contribute to single-use plastic bottle pollution.
To mitigate this, Epic Water Filters presents a unique solution – a bottle with a robust coconut carbon filter that allows you to drink rain or river water without falling ill.
Why Should You Participate ?
Within Epic Water’s OG Artist series, the chosen entry will be the first design from Asia to be printed on an Epic Water bottle. The chosen entry’s designer’s name will be printed on the bottles too – let the world see and appreciate your artistic work. Beyond recognition, this newly designed bottle will be used by Ocean Purpose Project team whenever we are out in the field dighting for ocean conservation, and proceeds will be channeled into funding Ocean Purpose Project’s local conservation efforts.
