The challenge was

Show us your contrasting creations

The ask is CONTRAST.

By definition, contrast is the difference between two objects, people or places - a state of being strikingly different from something else in juxtaposition. How do you interpret contrast? Summer and winter, dirty and clean, smooth and rough, blue and orange, Cher and Tom Cruise… the list goes on. Anything can be used to create contrast, whether that’s texture, typography, color, or shape. The important thing about contrast is that the elements should be *completely different* - not just a little bit different.

For this design challenge, we want you to take inspiration from the greats and explore concepts from one end of the spectrum to the other. Create something attention grabbing - we want to see your coolest contrasting creations, your divergent doodles, your polarizing prototypes (you get it).
