artists + rock stars + Internet celebrities + design + fashion + social media + charity = MASScanvas.
MASScanvas is represented as a Facebook application (developed by the Ignited team) and is described as follows:
In its simplest form, MASScanvas is about giving designers a T-shirt-shaped stage to showcase their talents while, at the same time, giving back to the community.
A full 10% of all sales on MASScanvas (not proceeds, sales) goes to the charitable cause associated with a particular design. On top of that, MASScanvas is responsible for the artists' prize money, and shining the spotlight on some serious creative talent. In this, MASScanvas is thus not only about supporting good design, but doing good through design, and "Designing with a purpose."
And ultimately, MASScanvas isn’t just another T-shirt design site. It’s a celebration of the creative process and the power of a collective. It's a forum for perpetual self-expression. A collaborative community of good and good artists.
We believe that everything we design, create, write, think and support adds to our own personal canvas. But beyond that, everything we put out into the world ends up a part of a much larger collective canvas. And that’s what MASScanvas is really about.
Whether you’re designing a T-shirt, voting on a submission, sharing a video or buying a shirt, every MASScanvas action helps unify creation, content and cause into one never-ending quest for good.
Good design. Good collaboration. Good will.
