Threadless’s Blast From the Past design contest

Nostalgia is back in fashion with Threadless‘s new Blast from the Past design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

More often than not, we don’t actively think about nostalgia for it to strike us. No, we have nostalgia thrust upon us. Such is the idea of “a blast from the past”. Create a design that will transport all who view it to an earlier time. We all have things that take us back to a specific feeling, memory, or decade, whether it’s a time we lived through or an era we’re fascinated by. Opening up a time capsule that was buried in the ‘50s. Finding an old toy in your parents’ basement that you haven’t seen in YEARS. The packaging of your favorite snack when you were a kid, seeing “the one that got away” at a high school reunion, or opening up the ol’ yearbooks and remembering inside jokes you forgot about amidst all the “H.A.G.S!” messages. Sometimes, things that are universal are enough to spark specific memories in all of us. Now go create a design that acts as a mental time machine!

This contest opens to entries on June 29th, 2018 and ends on July 13th, 2018. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Additionally, all designers printed will earn $1 minimum per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
