Threadless’s Dark Humor design contest

Threadless aims for a specific type of funny with their new Dark Humor design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

You gotta love dark humor. There’s something about being in that place where half of you is laughing and the other half is cringing. Dark humor can turn the scary into something to smile at (while also making you do a face/palm). That’s why for this challenge, we want you to create a design that pokes at the dark side of the funny bone. Make something that subverts horror, monsters, hauntings, etc. by adding a comical twist, a visual punchline. Fill the creepy alchemy jars in the recesses of our minds with candy and confetti.

Let the dark raven of humor pick at your right brain – come up with a design that’s equal parts creepy, beautiful, and LOL-worthy. (But, y’know, not TOO too dark. Let’s keep it fun!)

This contest opens to entries on May 25th, 2018 and ends on June 8th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash (with additional prizing to be announced on 5/25/18). Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
