Student Pizza Box Design Comp Winners 2015

Gung Ho! Pizza Student Pizza Box Design Competition

To be honest, when we first announced the launch of our inaugural Student Pizza Box Design Competition we had no idea how it was going to turn out. Needless to say, we’ve been completely overwhelmed by the response. We’ve received 179 submissions for the talented young artists of Beijing, from schools such as Beijing City International School, the Internatinal School of Beijing, the British School of Beijing, the Beijing World Youth Academy, Harrow International School, House of Knowledge and more! So many, in fact that we had to enlist the help of previous Gung Ho! Starving Artists Kang Haoxian and Zhan Zhan, and their fellow artists Momo & Li Longfei to help us judge.

But even then there we far too many to judge. So we’ve expanded the prizes!

Gung Ho! Pizza is stoked to announce that we’ll be featuring not 2 but 4 different pizza box designs, one from our judges and one from our Gung Ho! design team. Each of the four winners will also receive a certificate, and a pizza party for them and their friends. We will also further celebrate the work of the 7 finalists in each age group, each of whom will receive a certificate and a 200rmb gift voucher from us.

It was incredibly hard to judge this competition. The work submitted was all of an incredibly high standard and unfortunately we couldn’t choose them all. The work was judged on accordance with the theme of Summer in Beijing, and then creativity, composition, technique and personality.

We are proud to present the winners of the 2015 Gung Ho! Pizza Student Pizza Box Design Competition! Congratulations everybody!!

Note: Art shown is not original submission but has been color-tweaked (technical term) and placed on our own mock-up template. We’ll be posting larger versions of all the submissions through to next week here and on our Facebook.

The competition has been a HUGE success. I don’t know. We should get students to do all of our work, ah, creative stuff. We’ve had over 50 submissions, and enjoyed the support of Beijing’s biggest and brightest schools, such as Beijing Youth Academy, Beijing City International School, the British School of Beijing, the International School of Beijing, House of Knowledge, and more.

TOMS Comes to Lush for a Day Without Shoes

Blake Mycoskie @ Lush

Shoeless Blake

On Thursday May 21st our sister stores Lush and Sugar Shack were proud to play host to the TOMS annual “Day Without Shoes”. TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie himself was there, presenting the TOMS story to a packed out house. Gung Ho! Marketing Guy Rich had a chance to talk to Blake and says he was incredibly supportive of our sustainability efforts.

There were over 300 people in attendance – both local students from the surrounding universities and international students from Beijing University brought in by Project Pengyou who had partnered with TOMS for the event.

It was an inspiring experience, to meet someone who has taken the socially conscious business model to such great success, and even more inspiring for our own dreams of sustainability.

Read more about the day on Project Pengyous coverage!

The TOMS Story

While traveling in Argentina in 2006, TOMS Founder Blake Mycoskie witnessed the hardships faced by children growing up without shoes. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a new pair of shoes for a child in need. One for One®. What began as a simple idea has evolved into a powerful business model that helps address need and advance health, education and economic opportunity for children and their communities around the world. They’ve given over 35 million pairs of shoes to children in need, teaching them 35 million lessons. Since 2006, customers have helped us achieve this amazing number – and it’s leading to bigger and better things, like giving different types of shoes based on terrain and season, or creating local jobs by producing shoes in countries where they give.

**TOMS® Shoes are always given to children through humanitarian organizations who incorporate shoes into their community development programs. TOMS® Shoes giving partners in China include Heifer International China, Save the Children, World Vision, Stanford REAP andYouChange. (See TOMS China link for Chinese site)

Beijing Hikers Earth Day Great Wall Clean Up

Mission Accomplished Beijing Hikers

Clean up on Tower 5!

April 25 was The Beijing Hikers annual Earth Day Great Wall Clean Up and as usual, we were proud to host them at the Gung Ho Hut at Jiankou for a little R&R afterwards. The Hikers were surprised to find the GWall a lot cleaner than they expected – last year turned up more trash than they could carry. It turned out they weren’t the only clean-up crew on site that day. Looks like word is spreading! Good work guys! Learning – and leading the way. Learn more about the Beijing Hikers on their website!

Student Pizza Box Design Competition

Students Pizza Box Design Comp

In celebration of Children’s Day, anticipation of our new Kids Menu, and most importantly, a rapidly diminishing stack of pizza boxes, Gung Ho! Pizza is throwing a STUDENTS PIZZA BOX DESIGN COMPETITION! If you’re a student and love to draw, enter our competition for the chance to get your design on the cover of our pizza boxes, a shout out for your school, and a pizza party for all of your friends!

The competition is broken up into elementary and high school brackets and will feature a winner from each. The deadline is June 14, 2015 so get moving!

School’s In!

Of course we’d love to have the support of the fantastic international education network in Beijing. If a talented student from your institution wins, we’d be happy to feature your logo on our box next to the winning design. Also, we can provide a design brief for the project that would make a great lesson plan for art/design classes – and our Marketing/Design guy Rich Akers would be happy to come to your school and give a brief presentation on what it’s like to be a Professional Pencil Jockey! If you’re interested, please drop him a line at

The Deets

COLORS: Black & Pink (On White Background)
MINIMUM SIZE: 20cm X 20cm

The design needs to fit in a square space. The small box dimension is 28.5cm. We will resize the design for the large box. We need a 300dpi scan, at least 20cm x 20cm but ideally 30cm x 30cm.

The design needs to able to be printed in flat colors, so no gradients (though half-tone is okay). The colors are pink (90% Magenta) and black (100%) on a white background. NOTE: The design will eventually be printed on brown cardboard, so be aware of that.

In the event that you win (good luck!) we’ll also need a hand-drawn or designed self-portrait.
