Orange is the New Black has become Netflix’s most-watched original series. The series revolves around a woman in her 30s who is sentenced to 15 months in a minimum-security women's federal prison in upstate New York, and the complex relationships and dynamics between the prisoners. The blend of outrageous comedy and drama has brought many well deserved nominations and awards.

Design unique content for the Netflix hit series Orange is the New Black. Your artwork should reflect your own interpretation of the show’s themes, relationships or situations, and various personalities within the cast of the show.

Designs are mainly for use on apparel products (light and dark garments), but could also be used on drinkware, cases/covers, and home goods. 

Suggested Theme & Style Guidelines

How would you create artwork to capture the unique relationships and situations found within the walls of Litchfield Penitentiary? Feel free to create original artwork, designs, and slogans inspired by the TV Series OINB. However, please do not include any form of the logo, for this would call for disqualification. The designs should focus on the events / characters from the show, without using images of the actual actors. Carefully read through the "Things to Include" and "Things to Avoid" sections for more details.


You may also create artwork simply inspired by the name Orange is the New Black and whatever the show means to you. Head over to the More Info page to read more about the show and check out the previews.
