Design a unique and original emoji!

Got something to say? Say it with an emoji!

You gotta love emojis, a.k.a the hieroglyphs of modern times. But we’re not trying to reinvent them - much like the wheel, emojis are precious. Instead, we want you to come up with brand new, original, never-before-seen emojis to put on everything from pillows to tees for our “Emoji” challenge! Create just one new emoji or a whole keyboard of new ones, design the one you always wish existed but doesn’t, tell a visual story made solely out of brand new emojis; the is yours!

The winner received

  • $1,000 cash

  • $500 Threadless gift code

  • Plus, anyone who is printed (including the grand prize winner) will receive up to $7 on each t-shirt of their design sold on Threadless.com! Read more...
