Threadless’s Mid Century Illustration design contest

Threadless is headed back in time with their Mid Century Illustration design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

The charm of mid-century modern illustration is the fact that it looks futuristic and retro all at the same time. For this challenge, create a design that would look right at home on your Grandma’s “1940s-1960s” dream board. Go with the retro-futuristic look that brings to mind the art of _The Jetsons_ or opening credits of _I Dream of Jeannie_. Bring in iconic design elements of the time – bold color pops, stars and boomerang shapes, martini glasses – for a retro pattern. Create a fake movie poster that you might see at a ’50s B-movie night at a drive-in, or channel retro pop illustrations worthy of being a New Yorker cover back in the day.

This contest opens to entries on October 13th, 2017 and ends on October 27th, 2017. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code (plus more prizing to be announced on 10/13/17). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
