We’d love for you to have a go at our just for fun design competition and create a quote from our Co-founder Rachael Taylor’s book Power Up Your Creativity. Win exclusive prizes!

Your design needs to be as colourful, vibrant and dynamic as the book design and Rachael’s brand. Use the same colours from the cover for your design, or we’d love to see your own interpretation. Designs could be text based or a combination of typography, illustration or print and pattern design. We want you to have fun and share your unique style!

You can find out more about the book here.

Full artwork submission details and terms and conditions for this design competition are available below.



There’s beauty in every step of the journey.

Always stay true to your authentic self

If we dream small, we act small.

Sprinkle your magic and see where it lands.

I’d rather look back knowing that I tried, grabbed life with both hands, and gave everything a go.

The more we go after our dreams, the more we become fearless.

Everyone will go through life at their own pace, and that’s okay.

You deserve all of the good things.

Follow your weird.

Create from the heart.

We all need to be able to give ourselves permission to have more than one finish line.

When things don’t go how we expected, I love to say it’s just a “plot twist” and carry on!

Let things out, welcome things in.

Why not dream that little bit bigger.

Don’t deny what your creative heart wants.

Success is for everyone (not just the people you admire).

Growth can be uncomfortable and painful but also necessary and beautiful.

Start your day with “I get to” rather than “I have to.”

Creativity is a magical power we each hold within us.

Create the work you want to attract.

Always have faith in your own magic.

Become a champion of powering up your creativity.

Make things happen and have the courage to dream big.

If you believe it, you can achieve it.

When you make magic, the world deserves to see it.

Live the creative life you have always imagined.
