Become a Séura Designer
Submit your original design by Friday, September 22nd. Séura will announce the winner on November 12th at BDNY 2017.
Use any solid color in your design for reproduction using Séura's exclusive Lighted Mirror +Color technology. You may specify any solid Pantone or RAL color. RGB or CMYK formulas in your design are acceptable but we can't guarantee a perfect match. For this competition, there is no limit to the number of colors you may use, but we recommend sticking to five or less in any single mirror.
Note: +Color areas are best fabricated when less than 2" in diameter and bordered completely by at least 1/4" mirror.
Your design may consist of any mirror with a minimum of 18" x 18" and a maximum of 60" w x 94" h. Unlike previous competitions, you are not limited by etched area of the mirror and there is no template you need to conform to. Any area on the surface of the mirror may be etched and illuminated.
Use a standard Séura lighted mirror design from the Classic Design Collection as a springboard for your own design or allow your creation to span the entire mirror. Séura Brilliant LEDs are flexible and can be engineered to illuminate any shape.
Please submit your design in a vector-based file format such as AI, EPS, or PDF.
Create your design using white for areas that will be etched and illuminated. +Color areas can be designed with specified Pantone or RAL colors. Unless otherwise noted, +Color areas will also be illuminated.
Etched and non-etched details must be at least 1/8" wide for manufacturability.
We're here to help! If you have any questions about setting up your design file, please contact Séura Creative Manager, Katy Gertz at 920-857-9069 ext. 220 or email email@example.com.
2016 STUDIO SERIES WINNER

Design Inspiration: “I was inspired by the fundamental elegance of Art Deco. Geometric shapes and interesting line work is as current now as it was in the period's heyday. I'm an eclectic designer; I can see this pattern of interplaying angles featured in many different environments.”
