Competition: Spoonflower presents a design competition with the theme “Spoonflower”. What does Spoonflower mean to you?

What does Spoonflower mean to you?

Read the press release below.

The theme is simply: Spoonflower. What does Spoonflower mean to you? What kinds of things come to mind when you think about the brand? Is it sewing? Design? Community? Flowers? Spoons? Put it all down into a unique, never before seen repeating surface pattern.

Here’s the tricky part: you are allowed to use just 3 colors. Elements of the winning, all-over repeat design will be screen printed onto both white t-shirts and charcoal gray (the t-shirts shown above are the actual shirts we will use) so make sure to pick a color palette that would look great on both.

The Prizes

The grand prize winner will receive $500 in cold hard cash (cha-ching). In addition to the cash prize, the grand winner will receive a $250 Spoondollar credit and a free t-shirt printed with their winning design. The design itself may continue to be available for sale in the Marketplace where you can earn up to a 15% commission.
To decide the grand prize winner, Spoonflower will be choosing the design we feel best fits our brand personality from the top 10 popularly-voted designs entered into the contest. Once a winner has been chosen, we will then work with the winning design to add our logo, and pick out elements that we would like to go on the t-shirts.
Please keep in mind that while we are asking you to create an all-over print that would look great on fabric yardage, wallpaper and gift wrap, we are just going to be pulling out certain elements of that design to place onto our t-shirts.
