T-shirt Design Contest

​About Indigo Volunteers

Indigo is a charity that recruits volunteers and connects them with humanitarian organisations around the globe with a focus on the European refugee and migrant route.


They provide a straightforward, fee-free matchmaking service, placing people where they are needed most. They’ve found that small grassroots organisations often don’t have the time or resources to find the volunteers that keep their projects running. Conversely, people who want to volunteer often don’t know where to start and find it difficult to identify a legitimate project where they’re really needed. Their aim is to remove these hurdles so that charities can continue to keep going and focus on objectives.


Indigo is partnered with Help Refugees UK (Choose Love) who have a huge T-shirt campaign and recently collaborated with various designers. Here are some examples from their ASOS shop. We are looking to do something similar.

We launched our t-shirt fundraising initiative last fall and want to continue it with a new series of designs to be rolled out throughout the year. Probably 1 new design per quarter. This will keep the campaign fresh and allow us to use as many designs as possible. Launch campaign examples

We are looking for a design that reflects your thoughts on the current refugee crisis. This can be done typographically, a pattern, illustrations...whatever you want. We just appreciate any help we can get from great artists like yourself. Designs should be simple to reproduce on the t-shirts and other items. They can be simple one colour or very colourful. Once again, it is all up to you.


There is no hard deadline as this will be an ongoing campaign. And a new design will be introduced every few months or so, depending on the amount of designs.


Our poem for the campaign by Ellsie Hewer



Humanity, sometimes hard to put your finger on

But it’s that sparkle in the sky when all light is gone

It’s a glimmer of hope

When your journey is long

The kindness of strangers

No matter where you come from

8 billion people and all of us the same

2 lungs, and one heart pumping blood through our veins

So in the presence of animosity

We will bring unity

And when the tide turns and we are faced with calamity

Hold fast stand strong and remember your humanity


Our logo and brand colours. But feel free to use as you wish to suit your design.
