Peterborough graphic designer Emma Scott’s work was recently featured in the New York Post, with an unusual twist — it’s a design for a condom wrapper.

Emma’s design, which includes a hat and the text “Beanie For Your Weenie”, accompanies a New York Post story about Boston-based condom company ONE Condoms earning the first-ever approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market a condom for anal as well as vaginal sex.

“I have done a few designs for ONE Condoms over the years and turns out their condoms are the first to be FDA approved for anal,” Emma tells kawarthaNOW. “So my design is just the cover art of the story which is cool.”

Previously the FDA had approved marketing of condoms only for vaginal sex, but ONE Condoms submitted results from Emory University of the largest clinical trial of effectiveness of condoms for anal sex ever conducted, which found that ONE Condoms’ condoms used during anal sex failed less than one per cent of the time.

The FDA’s authorization allows ONE Condoms to now market its condoms as helping to reduce transmission of sexually transmitted infections during anal intercourse as well as during vaginal intercourse.

Emma originally submitted the condom wrapper design featured in the New York Post story for a ONE Condoms contest in spring 2019, when it was selected as the grand prize winner by voters and a panel of judges, winning Emma a cash prize, a year’s supply of condoms (365) featuring her design, and a donation of condoms to the health organization of her choice.

It’s not the first time Emma has taken home the grand prize in a One Condoms contest. In 2017, the company held a “ONE Canada Design Contest”, where contestants were encouraged to submit condom wrapper designs celebrating Canadian life, culture, and history for Canada’s 150th anniversary.

Emma won for her design featuring a bucket on a maple tree with the text “I’d Tap That”, and was also selected as a runner-up for her plaid design with the text “Get Plaid” (with the P crossed out).

“I never thought I would be so excited to see my art being ripped up and thrown away, but here I am putting my designs onto ONE Condoms wrappers for all consenting adults across Canada,” Emma said at the time.

“This contest was the perfect way for me to sprinkle my sense of humour into my design work, and I’m so glad Canada loved them,” she added. “I hope that safety is the only thing people take seriously with these fun condom wrappers.”

As the grand prize winner, Emma won a cash prize, a year’s supply of condoms featuring her design, and 10,000 condoms donated to the Canadian health organization of her choice. As a runner-up as well, she won a year’s supply of condoms featuring her design and a 7,000 condoms donated to the Canadian health organization of her choice.

Her condom wrapper design called “One Night Stand”, featuring a night stand beside a bed, was also a staff pick for a 2017 ONE Condoms contest.
