Are you an artist or do you aspire to become one? If so, the ZOX CREATE is a great place to refine your skill, gain exposure, and make money to support yourself.
Here's a step by step of how it works:
- Create your artwork in one of our templates. For Photoshop, click here. For Illustrator, click here. It must be submitted in these templates to be considered.
- Once you've done that, submit your design to us via this form.
- Once we've received the design, we'll submit it for review to our board of artists. All artists have a formal art education, so it's like submitting to a teacher for grading. The ZOX Artists Council (ZAC) reviews submissions and scores them based on this card. I've included an example review, as well as critiques made by myself on an old design.
- If the design scores an average of 70 or less, we'll send it back to you along with a scorecard and critiques to help you improve. If scores 71 or higher, it will be added to our queue and you'll be sent an expected launch date.
- Once launched for pre-order, your design will have two weeks to determine how many Straps will be made and the payout you'll receive:
<250 - $100, only 1,000 will be made and sent to pre-orders and randomly in Mystery Packs + Extras
250-499 - Fully Funded. 5,000 will be made and you'll receive a $500 payment + Extras
500+ - Fully Funded. 5,000 will be made and you'll receive a $1,000 payment + Extras
Free Straps- Artists will receive 10 free Straps of their design at all levels.
Seamless Repeating Design - Fully funded designs that are seamless-repeating will receive a $200 bonus.
Artist Codes - If your design is featured, you'll receive an Artist Code to share with your friends/followers to give them $2 off Straps on their first order from ZOX. In return, you'll get 25% of the total sale price (excluding shipping and discounts) from their first order. This code will work as long as you have designs on our site, so you'll always be able to promote your designs and earn extra money.
To make sure new artists always have a fair chance at becoming a CREATE Artist, we promote artists after they've had 4 fully-funded designs. When you're promoted, you'll work with us directly to create designs as an Artist Collab. This comes with tons of extra perks:
- $500 or $1000 per design with 5,000 or 10,000 pieces made (on very rare occasions) + $200 for seamless-repeating designs and the chance at extra bonuses.
- Opportunity to design Imperials for $500 4 times per year.
- 35% Commission on ‘Artist Code’ sales.
- Minimum of $100 payout on all designs with use as Secret Stash Straps (Limited to 500 pieces and only available to subscribers).
- $200 payout on White Star designs.
- Designs are made and kept under wraps until the release.
- Artist profile on our site.
- 100 Straps of your design or an extra $250.
- Wholesale pricing of your designs.
