Bear Essentials Tote (Powell's Design Contest Winner)


Bear Essentials Tote (Powell's Design Contest Winner) Cover


Synopses & Reviews


At Powell's, we often feel like we belong to our community. Our customers send us postcards from their vacations, paintings and photographs of our stores, links to blog posts about Powell's — even the occasional request to get married in our flagship store. We love it. So we thought it would be fun to hold a design contest and let you, our customers, help shape the face of "your store."

The submissions for our design contest ran the gamut from lighthearted to thought-provoking, and entrants included emerging artists as well as seasoned graphic designers. Choosing three winners was difficult, as each design captured a unique facet of the Powell's experience. You can see all of our top 10 finalists here.


"On my first trip to Portland, I spent a full day exploring Powell's Books. Ever since then, Powell's has been synonymous with Portland in my mind. And Portland is a pretty unique city. It transitions into the surrounding mountains, rivers, and forests almost instantly. I'd like to think the critters get some benefit from their close proximity to one of the coolest bookstores on the planet." Peggy Dolaghan

100% certified organic cotton tote with web handles.

All of these are very creative and expressive, but I thought this was the MOST expressive and creative for Powell's Bookstore , which I have been frequenting in Hyde Park, Chicago, since the 1980's. Brad has always reminded me of a bear, and it's perfect for Portland, too. Thanks a lot, MKM

As a both a bear lover and a book lover, this is the ideal design for a book bag for me! Well, I'm nearsighted, too, but lasix surgery prevented me from finding a perfect match with this image.

I can't wait to buy this bag! It's extremely similar to a tattoo I've had planned for a while- my brain eating a book...
