Valve wants you to help design actual TF2-themed clothes, for cash

Team Fortress 2

By on August 18, 2014 at 10:57 am

Unlike many companies who offer artists “exposure” or say it’ll “be great for their portfolio” when submitting work, Valve have a proven track record of paying people money — a lot of money — who make great designs for them.

Now they’re looking for even more stuff, this time to actually go on your body and in your house. Shirt and poster designs are being solicited by the company in a new blog post here, where they ask for Team Fortress 2-related merch pitches, with “handsome royalties” promised for the winners.

There’s an FAQ here if you want to know more, and you check out some prospective designs here on the Workshop. Enjoy!

I feel like I’m creative enough to easily provide dozens and dozens of good ideas… And sufficently talentless that I could provide little beyond stick figures with arrows pointing at them describing what I was trying to draw. :(

Good luck to those people who can do both.

They did this with The International, releasing a whole bunch of merch that had a cut going back to the artists involved. From what I heard it made (and still makes) them an absolute mint.
