CREATE A UNIQUE T-SHIRT DESIGN INSPIRED BY MINECRAFT
Last year we asked artists to get out their pickaxes and shovels and build something never before seen on Threadless. Our first Minecraft challenge was so popular it received over 3,000 submissions, more than any other challenge in Threadless history. That’s a lot of blocks! And a whole collection of awesome tees.
Your challenge is to craft a unique, unexpected, clever, or otherwise extraordinary t-shirt design inspired by Minecraft. We’re looking for designs that will delight hardcore ‘crafters, so dig up your best inside jokes and discard anything familiar, like Minecraft logos or straight-up creeper designs.
Take a few hours away from exploring the Nether and griefing your neighbors and get to work constructing the best Minecraft tee yet.

Create a Design Inspired by Music, TV, Movies, and Toys of the ’90s!
Stop, collaborate, and listen. Or just stop, work independently, and read.
Open up the Trapper Keeper of memories that is your mind and create a design that celebrates the final decade of the 20th century.
Think about anything that made the ‘90s great: Power-Rangers-filled afternoons, Babysitters-Club book-reading marathons, grungin’ out with Nirvana, and Lisas Frank, Turtle, and Loeb. Switch off that Super Nintendo and start designing! When you’re done, you can take a look at your submission and wonder, “Did I do that?”
Olly Moss has 25 Threadless designs! He’s a great example of someone who’s artistic style “grew up” thanks to the comments and input of the Threadless community.
Check out his talk at Offset 2012, a creative festival in Dublin, about his past and current projects, his perspective on different types of art mediums, and his view on the value of a good concept. Congrats on your success, Olly!
