OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Design Competition! Yay!

Hello all you lovely people who are designers, creative types and appreciators, welcome to our first blog competition!

The Made On The Left Marketing Gurus (SarahG, SarahD, Felicity, and Lauren) are currently expanding our Merch range from art posters and badges to include such lovelies as tote bags for your shopping ease, and... Bumper Stickers, so you can wear your MOTL loyalty on your sleeve (or car, or school file, or design folio... or anywhere really!).

The design for the totes wasn’t much trouble (I (osier) had a go at illustration at it was really fun!), but we decided to let you guys at it for the bumper sticker, and reward you for your efforts with a tote bag and a few other super-duper knick-knacks... what a fab prize!

The guidelines are:
1. Must include the words "Made On The Left"
2. Must be
3 inches by 10 inches @ 300dpi
3. We'd love it to have a super cute slogan like "honk if you're made on the left" or other such nonsense!
4. You may use our text logos for the design, but not our posters.
5. Visibility from a distance will be judged favourably.
6. Must be submitted to Lauren@madeontheleft.com by
5pm Sunday the 8th of November.

Yup, that does mean you have less than a week to come up with a design!
Better get cracking! (We hope to have them for sale at the November Hyde Park Hotel event)

Any questions can be posted in the comments, and please link to this competition on your blog, we want as many entries as possible!
