The challenge was

Create a design based on a fictional alternate history

"Well everyone knows Custer died at Little Bighorn. What this book presupposes is ... maybe he didn't?" - Eli Cash, The Royal Tenenbaums

Everything about who and where we are today is a result of how things occurred up this point. Think about a very crucial point in history and consider what would be different now if things had ended differently then.

Your challenge is to create a design inspired by an alternate history that you create.

What if the continents never broke apart and we all still lived on Pangea? What if dinosaurs never went extinct? What if peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches were never invented? Dig into your history books and start makin' edits. This is your chance to rewrite history.

  • $2,500 cash

  • $200 Threadless gift code

  • historical action figure prize pack (includes Einstein, Alexander The Great, Shakespeare and more)

  • Alternate Histories of the World by Matthew Buchholz (hardcover book)
