Threadless’s Psychedelic design contest

Trippy imagery and bright, bold colors are sure to be a big factor in Threadless‘s new Psychedelic design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Psychedelic rock and hippie counterculture were at their height during the 1960s (aka the trippiest decade). For this challenge, create a design laced with the trippy, psychedelic vibes so good we’ll think we’re hallucinating. Psychedelia (well, the “rated-G version”) is all about trippy, rainbow-fueled art that looks like what we imagine the inside of a lava lamp might look like. Get high…ly inspired by the trippy album art, the Woodstock-worthy concert posters, the visuals of the psychedelic age.

Channel your inner hippie: throw some Jimi Hendrix or Grateful Dead on the turntable, light some incense, and create a design that sends those good, good, good vibrations into the universe, man.

This contest opens to entries on October 19th, 2018 and ends on November 2nd, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Poetry design contest

Threadless sets their sights on a literary art form with the new Poetry design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Whether you’re a poetry buff who knows every line of “The Raven” or your poetic abilities start and stop at “roses are red, violets are blue”, this challenge is for you. We want you to create a poetry-inspired design so good that we feel compelled to compare thee to a summer’s day. Think about everything you learned about poetry in school and the famous poets out there. What about this craft speaks to you? Little limericks? Hilarious haikus? Epic epics? There are as many directions to take this challenge as there are poems that exist in this world.

This contest opens to entries on October 12th, 2018 and ends on October 26th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).

Threadless’s Skateboards design contest

Threadless expands their horizons from apparel and housewares in the new Skateboards design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

For this challenge we’ve partnered with CCS* and we want you to bring the art of skate culture back to the canvas it was intended for: a skateboard! Decks aren’t just good for tearing up a halfpipe – they can also be displayed as a wall hanging to give home decor a whole new twist. With this in mind, design a piece of art for a deck that would look just as good on the street as it would on your wall.

The art of skate culture has left a lasting mark on the world of visual arts. Channel the vibes of this edgy, iconic art form and make a display-worthy deck that skaters & non-skaters alike would appreciate.

This contest opens to entries on October 1st, 2018 and ends on October 15th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash, a $250 CCS gift code and a $250 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
