Let’s create

How it works


There will be four stages involved in bringing the product to life. Choose the stage that best suits your skills. Then, when submissions open, upload images, video and other supporting media that showcase your idea.


When submissions close, voting begins. Community, this is your chance to show support for your favourite entries.


All valid submissions will be judged by our internal panels to select the winner of each stage. Community voting will be a key deciding factor.


Each of the four winners will collaborate with a relevant Nothing Team to bring their idea to life. Coming together to build the final Community Edition - the ultimate version of Phone (2a).

Stage: 3 Packaging design winner

Less is More - Ian Henry Simmonds

"We were very impressed by a number of submissions but it was Ian's that really stood out. It felt familiar to Nothing but also new and interesting, with the super-macro crop. Graphically, it was bold but with a welcome level of simplicity. There is something captivating about his use of a single camera lens, so large in frame. It plays on the original Phone (2a) narrative: Fresh Eyes. Also the use of UV materials was interesting yet restrained, which felt well-considered."

Stage 2: Wallpaper design winner

Connected Collection - Andrés Mateos

"Andres’ overall effort, creatively layered process and high-quality final output have awarded him.

The approach impressively combined hand-drawn elements and a variety of tools for sketching, digitalising, AI generating, and post-editing to create a unique, layered, and rich process. Leading him to create a set of designs that would look at home on (2a) Community Edition’s phospherence-inspired hardware.

A unique concept that naturally feels part of Nothing’s DNA. Well done, Andres!"

Stage: 1 Hardware design winner

Phosphorescence - Kenta Akasaki & Astrid Vanhuyse

"With an innovative use of materials, Kenta and Astrid's submission feels true to Nothing's vision. Playful, meaningful and just the right level of unexpected. Their concept, Phosphorescence, was well-realised with a great story and research behind it. The duo clearly thought about how to communicate their inspiration for the project, and how it could work in our existing product lineup."

Every product that Nothing has released to date has been designed with its community in mind. The Community Edition Project allows Nothing to co-create, leveraging the talents of its most creative followers.

Six months, four stages, one phone. Across that time we’ll be collecting entries for the design of the ultimate version of Phone (2a). Spanning hardware, wallpapers, packaging and marketing, winners at each stage will get the chance to engage directly with the Nothing Team as they bring their creations to life. 

At the end of the project, winners will be invited to London to be part of the Community Edition launch event. Showcasing their work to the world and officially launching the device.
