Create a design for e-readers! E-readers are people, too... Oh, wait. They aren't? Oh well, these beloved electronics need accessories to make them snugglier for when we curl up for a good read.

Create a design for mini-skirts! Girls often emblazon messages on their chests, leading to awkward glances, welcomed stares, or both. Why not garner the attention on the other set of assets?

Create a design for men's vests! Guys look sporting in that 19th century bartender look. A Threadless men's vest would look even sporting-er.

Create a design about Hobbits! Not a nasty, dirty, wet design, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy design with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat. Also, that movie is coming out. Timing = mucho good-o.
