The challenge was

Create a design using a language other than your own!

Hello! ¡Hola! Jambo! Ni hao! Guten tag!

Something as simple as saying hello comes in innumerable forms. Language, as different as it can be, has the same purpose: connecting people. It has the ability to transcend the barriers between cultures, express one's feelings, or provide a means of communication. We want you to explore a language or multiple languages other than your own!

Create bold text-based designs that celebrate the art of foreign linguistics. Combine the text in illustrations, keep it simple with clean typography, or create patterns with a whole different vocabulary.

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...
