Threadless’s Analog design contest

Get back to basics with Threadless‘s new Analog design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Remember the satisfying click of your typewriter keys as you pounded out an interoffice memo? Or spending entire car rides untangling the magnetic tape of your cassettes? What about calculating statistics with your abacus? Or the pleasant smell of ink from a freshly delivered newspaper? Ahhh yes, the good old days. When vinyl wasn’t the hipster way to listen to music, it was the only way.

Let’s harken back to simpler times, before this whole digital trend (we’re pretty sure it’s a fad). Back when waves, like sound, were recorded and physically translated, perhaps onto vinyl or tape. We want your best, outmoded art of anachronistic devices in our analog design challenge. Give us designs inspired by old-school audio recording, cuckoo clocks, wristwatches, record players, and more. So, flip the album, drop the needle, and design away!

This contest opens to entries on September 13th and ends on September 27th 2019. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn up to $7 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
