Looking to move away from the ubiquitous coffee mugs and provide museum shops with more innovative products to sell, Release 1.0 is a design competition that offers winning contestants a fair deal. Unlike most other design competitions, winners are promised a percentage of sales revenue, as well as the traditional good publicity and international exposure. Not limited to a single museum, the winning designs will be stocked by spaces such as the ICA in London and Berlin’s Deutsche Guggenheim as well as being sold online at Those lucky enough to be picked will receive 7% of the product’s wholesale price, which compares well with the industry standard of 3-10% for commissioned designs.
