Vote 1 for me!
Hi guys - if you can spare just a minute of your time, please vote on my condom tin design (Yes. You heard me).
I entered this competition on a whim the other day and they actually encourage entrants to have their minions vote, which won't work out too well for me as I have very few minions due to a pervasive habit of letting people see how ridiculous I really am. VOTE 1 FOR ME!

http://www.stidesigncompetition.net.au/Vote.aspx?d=UYU80

The actual design I submitted is all vectors, and thusly crisp as a baby razor blade, but their compression process... well, you'll see.

*Voted*

The compression is a bit shit.

The compression is HORRENDOUS. They do that to all the designs. I guess at least it's a level playing field. Like, a "razed to the ground" playing field, really. ;D

I had never even heard of condom tins until I saw this on facebook. Good luck!

Thank you! :3 I'm all for better methods of carrying necessities. Man, tampon cartons? THE WORST. I use a little silk bag for that. One company started releasing tampons in cute little tins and their sales skyrocketed. I think the government is hoping for the same effect if they try it with condoms.

I use this new contraption that came out not too long ago. I keep my condoms in that. Amazing thing. Always got it with me. It's called a wallet.

Because I don't need an added step, like opening a tin, between me and sex. ;-)

Thats a really really cute design, and I actually love the idea of a condom tin.

Cheers! I like the idea too; I'm surprised nobody does it yet! Even tampons can be bought in tins these days. Tins rock.

Actually, it looks like they've been around for a while. They're even collectable! O_o
