These days everyone is talking about the slim and tiny wallets made by abrAsus, a small leather goods brand that launched in Tokyo. How do you fancy having a go at designing your own pattern to go onto the surface of an abrAsus wallet?

This contest is seeking design proposals for patterns to be engraved onto wallets produced by abrAsus, the popular small leather goods brand that won the 2013 good design award in Japan. How you express yourself is up to you: your design could be a pattern, or it could be an illustration or typography. A wallet to heal? A wallet that makes you break into laughter?
How about sending us your artwork ideas for something that will grab attention, and that’s fun and exciting?

slim wallet abrAsus

This innovative wallet does away with the uncomfortable feeling of having a two fold wallet in your pocket. It was created in the pursuit of something slim and comfortable that won’t make a visible dent in whatever you are wearing. Constructed so that coins and cards won’t sit on top of one another when folded closed, this wallet achieves an unbeatable slimness of 13mm.
