Crowd Sourced Design Site Teezilla First Ever Winner is the all Powerful Warrior

Share Article

Teezilla, the crowd sourced tee-shirt design competition site has announced its first winner, Joshua K Marshall. Marshall will receive £200 and get his design printed on a tee-shirt, which will then be up for sale in the Teezilla online shop.


Teezilla, founded in late 2011, connects both professional and amateur designers, artists and illustrators to create a community where they decide who wins, with sharing and commenting on each others ideas.

Joshua Marshall, an illustration graduate from Kingston University London, created an eye catching and thought provoking black and white design entitled Motubu Aka - the all-powerful warrior, who because of his endurance and inflexible will to win, goes from conquest to conquest, leaving fire in his wake. Marshall is currently based in North London and his imagery surfaces in a diverse range of commissions for tee-shirts, posters, magazine and book illustrations.

“I’m very pleased with the feedback from my design for the Teezilla competition” Marshall said. “I’m excited to have won the first Teezilla prize and hope to create more designs for the brand. Thank you to everyone that voted for my 'Motubu' design.”

The illustration proved popular earning 145 votes in its 14 day cycle, around 22% of the total votes cast for last month. Runner up was Joshua Owen’s design Queen Panda with 126 votes and Teo Surman took a close third with Yankee War earning 123 votes. All the entries from March will be pulled together and the site organisers will choose a further two designs to be made into tee’s and put them up for sale in the Teezilla shop.

Teezilla co-creator Mark Panay commented "The response and quality of artwork on the Teezilla site in just a few weeks has been amazing. We remain committed to encouraging people to visit the site and further boost its profile by entering their bold and creative artwork. I'm surprised that there hasn't been more crazy slogans but there's always next month for that…"

Teezilla is going strong with 11,345 visitors last month and high quality illustrations being entered into the competition. The site can be accessed via where users are encouraged to visit throughout the weeks to see the design entries as they are submitted, and to vote.
