We felt it would be an appropriate way to spread some of our own baseball caps among our fans.

Today, we are sharing a genuine prize draw with our audience; something we usually just get tired of while on Facebook. Still, we felt it would be an appropriate way to spread some of our own baseball caps among our fans, followers, and visitors. A Cap and Win Prize Draw? Really? Yes. You’ll find all the details below.

The cap we designed in collaboration with Pinwin and Grassroots California

Rodesk User Experience Design

This one-of-a-kind baseball cap is thefruit of collaboration between Grassroots California, Rodesk, and PinWin. Grassroots is a progressive clothing brand producing merchandise for the J Dilla Foundation, Method Man, and NASA, to name but a few. Although they are celebrated in the USA, they have yet to make a name for themselves in Europe. For Grassroots, this co-op symbolizes the jump across to the European mainland. Grassroots looked to Rodesk and Studio PinWin, run by the Lastplak collective, to grant them a safe voyage, and the outcome is this baseball cap.

The cap represents the crossing of the Atlantic Ocean: a boat from Rotterdam crammed full of caps displaying the Los Angeles and Rotterdam skylines facing each other. They are exclusively available from the manufacturers in the US, but if you simply can’t wait to get your hands on them, they are exclusively available at Gorilli right now.

About the prize draw

As Europe and America share a long history of trade and exchange, we have reserved three caps we want to exchange for… for what, actually? We don’t have the slightest idea; that’s up to you. At any rate, it has to be something you think we can put to use. So what do you need to do to enter? The steps to follow are listed below:

  1. Like Rodesk on Facebook and share the post on this exchange event with your friends;
  2. Mail us a picture of the object you wish to exchange for a cap, including your explanation, to interactie@rodesk.nl;
  3. Calmly await the outcome until  Monday April 29. We will contact the winners by email to settle the exchange.

Happy Trading!

Update (May 1, 2013): We managed to make a few winners happy with our caps, and so this draw comes to an end. However, if you still want to own a cap yourself, then simply send us an email stating your suggested bartering object as described above; we still have a few lying around.
