Benjamins. Moolah. Dough. Bread. (No, not that kind of dough and bread.) I’m talking cash. Cold hard cash you can use to buy whatever you want. (May I suggest some Primal fare from a local farmer or dining establishment ?)
The winner of this design contest will receive $500. If I actually print the design and distribute the poster the designer will receive an extra $1500, for a total prize value of $2000.
The Primal Blueprint Poster (click the image to the right to zoom in) was designed a few years back. While it’s holding up OK, I think it’s time for an update – a makeover, as it were. And that’s where you, or at least all the graphic designers amongst you, come in. Design the next Primal Blueprint Poster for a chance to win the prize above and have your design end up on garage, bedroom, classroom and gym walls around the world.
Now, what’s this poster all about? The purpose of this poster is to showcase what the Primal Blueprint is and – at a glance – how it is done. So it needs to be educational, but it also needs to be eye-catching and engaging. The best designs will capture the spirit of the Primal Blueprint in the design (we went with a sandstone background and savannah imagery for the last poster), and the message of the Primal Blueprint in the content (what it is, the problems it solves, why it works, how it’s done, etc.).
Here are a few of the things you can include to accomplish this, but there is no requirement to use any of them:
- The Primal Blueprint 10 Laws
- The Primal Blueprint Food Pyramid 
- The Primal Blueprint Fitness Pyramid 
- The Primal Blueprint 4 Essential Movements (Squats , Pullups , Pushups , Planks ; see Primal Blueprint Fitness )
- The Primal Blueprint Carb Curve 
- The Primal Blueprint 8 Key Concepts 
- The Primal Blueprint 5 Action Items (covered in MDA articles last and this week, they are: Action Item #1: Eliminate SAD Foods , Action Item #2: Shop, Cook, and Dine Primally , Action Item #3: Make the Healthiest Choices Across the Spectrum, Action Item #4: Exercise Primally – Move, Lift and Sprint!, Action Item #5: Slow Life Down)
- The Primal Blueprint Shopping List  (PDF )
One requirement: “Primal Blueprint” needs to remain in Trajan font. (And if you’d like to use the Primal blue, it’s hex code #1962c6.)
Be creative, have fun with this, and see what you can bring to the look and feel of this poster. Once you’re happy with your design, email it to me  in PDF format. Include “PB Poster” in the subject line of your email. I receive hundreds of emails a day. If the subject line isn’t correct, there’s a chance I may miss your submission entirely.
Open to all denizens of planet Earth.
