Merchandise Design Contest

Galvanize A Global Fanbase

Creative Allies was tapped again by Twenty One Pilots. This time they were looking for an authentic fan engagement campaign to boost the anticipation of the Ohio-based band’s latest album, Blurryface. We issued the challenge to design a tour poster as dynamic as the group’s groundbreaking album to our community of creators and to Tyler and Josh’s millions of fans worldwide. The result was a record-breaking number of clique art, a No. 1 ranking on the Billboard 200, and over $1 million in U.S. album sales.

There was an overwhelming amount of interest for this contest due to the band’s fan base being extremely creative and consistently creating fan art for their favorite duo. Creative Allies was able to draw these fans into our community for this and other contests.

A total of 10 winners were chosen – a Grand Prize winner and 9 other winners from various regions around the world aligned with the locations of the band’s world tour.
