Creative Allies does more than create art, it creates fans.

Discover emerging designers from around the world.
We let people from around the world design for rockstars
Creative Allies gives everyone a chance to submit art and designs for their favorite bands, films and festivals. Sign up for free and submit your art and designs to win prizes, sell your stuff and get your work noticed.
Here's why Creative Allies rocks:
  • It's free to sign up and submit unlimited entries for any of our active design contests
  • We're very selective about posting new design contests. Only cool projects in music and entertainment get posted on Creative Allies. (New projects are posted by invitation only, but you can contact us to propose one.)
  • For each contest, at least one grand prize winner is selected by the contest holder and awarded a cash prize and other goodies like tickets, merch and/or VIP perks.
  • Additional submissions are selected to be sold in the Creative Allies Store even if they didn't win a design contest. These items become official merch and profits are shared between the designer and the contest holder (the band, film or festival).
  • Only Creative Allies lets you redesign the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, create coloring book-style interactive posters for Tokyo Police Club and design an official poster/iPhone case combo for The Black Keys, Pretty Lights, and Ween. Check out all our active design contests.
Where we come from

Creative Allies was founded by Sean O'Connell, CEO of Music Allies, a top secret agency that handles strategy, marketing, publicity and radio promotions for music festivals and independent labels.

For the last 10 years, Music Allies has helped musicians release their music independently by providing artists with opportunities that were traditionally reserved for major labels.

Music Allies' mission is to expose new music to fans worldwide. Our current and past clients include Jack Johnson, G Love, Aimee Mann, Joshua James, Ani DiFranco, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Sia, the Hangout Music Festival, MoogFest, Outside Lands Festival, Joan Osborne, Justin Timberlake's new label Tennman Records, the Hard Rock Cafes, Martin Sexton, Matt Morris, the Bacon Brothers, Katie Costello, Cat Empire, Erin McKeown, Andrew Bird, Righteous Babe Records, Brushfire Records, Concerts For the Coast, Rogue Wave, Benjamin Taylor, Velour Music, Relix Magazine, Anais Mitchell, Flip Camera, Sony Playstation, Time Life and many more.

Now with Creative Allies, Sean and the team are following their passion to promote creative individuals. "Our goal for Creative Allies is to give artists access to creative opportunities and, by doing so, expose their talents to the world," says O'Connell.

Music Allies and Creative Allies are located in the bohemian art capital of Asheville, North Carolina. Come visit.
