We evaluate your application based on 3 main criteria:
- Technical ability. Art submitted needs to be translated to Cricut cutting machines. Therefore, the technical nature of how the art is set up is a crucial component. Artwork will be cut, drawn, foiled, or even engraved into materials by Cricut machines. (Tip: To create Cricut-friendly, scalable artwork, avoid extremely thin lines, use no more than 6 colors, and outline all fonts, paths, and strokes.)
- Design aesthetic and proficiency. During the artwork review process, we’ll consider your application of design principles, including the use of color, spacing, and typography. Make sure your SVGs match your portfolio as well. We want to make sure you are the original creator of the artwork.
- Visual Clarity. Art must make sense on its own without further explanation, i.e., a cat needs to look like a cat. In addition, SVGs design must make sense on its own. Any image that requires explanation is a project, and we are currently not accepting projects.
In addition, please do not submit art that is inspired or similar to licensed content (i.e., Disney, Marvel, etc.), as this will result in automatic rejection from the program.
