The FADER presents: Ratatat Design Contest

Ok so Mike Stroud and Evan Mast met while going to Skidmore, I went to Skidmore, so pretty much any excuse I find to post their stuff is going to be exploited.

Anyways, here’s a pretty straight forward contest for all you creative types out there. THE FADER wants you to design some RATATAT merchendise, could be anything, and if you win you get a custom RATATAT bike. Fresh. Though there are many, here are two of my favortite tracks. Enjoy.

Ratatat – Kennedy

Beanie Sigel & Jay-Z – Glock Nines (Ratatat Remix)

Here’s the official press release and pictures of the grand prize…
