In celebration of their 40th anniversary, the legendary rock band Queen came to Talenthouse in search of fashion designers, illustrators and graphic designers to create a new t-shirt design.

During the two month submission period we received an impressive amount of creative designs from artists all over the world.  So many, in fact, that the band members decided to push back the winner announcement date in order to make the best decision possible.

Guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor took the time to look over all 1000+ submissions and we are so happy to share the results with you!
