GAIA10 Official trailer and laFraise Contest announced!

The Gaia Project to raise awareness for climate change, started in 2007 as an open source community project to create digital art for this cause. In the last four years a group of 5.000 designers – members from laFraise, Behance, deviantArt and other big design websites – joined them to create designs, music and articles around this major theme.

Gaia curator Marius Bauer approached Steffen Knoesgaard with a suggestion to collaborate on making the first official trailer for the Gaia project and thus adding moving images to the Gaia project for the first time.

Teaming up with fellow motion designers Fredrik Ekholm and Simon Holmedal, the team created the trailer working in an online collaboration from 4 different countries based out of New York, Amsterdam, London and Munich. Musician Kevin Durante, an contributor to earlier Gaia releases, joined in to make a custom sound track – that will be released later as a full length track on the forthcoming Gaia album.

We are very happy to launch the Gaia Contest next Monday on laFraise.

Your mission
We invite you to create an ode to mother nature, a design which represents the beauty and diversity of nature. You should not really focus on one theme, one animal or one plant, but more on the beautiful mess that nature is. Lovers of detail, this contest is for you!

The winning design will be printed on an Organics Shirt, so the t-shirt’s colour is limited to the 6 colors which are available for our Organic Shirts: dijon, light blue, light grey, Mocca, red coral and white.
From Monday 5 July to Monday 19 July – 3:30 p.m. CET
+ one week for voting.

1 winning design = €1,000
Printed on 500 laFraise Organic Shirts.
