Create a design based on Original Monsters. Who doesn't like Monsters and the chaos they wreck on humanity? Forget Godzilla, King Ghidora or that huge creepy thing from Cloverfield. Your aim is to design an original Monster (No, not Charlize Theron kinda stuff). A monster from your own imagination. Make it scary, make it lovable, make it funny. It's your choice. It's your Monster.

Create a design based on Mythology. You know the stories. You know the characters. Gods, Creatures, Epic Behemoths; Norse, Greek, Hindu. Whatever your cup o' tea is, your aim is to make a design based on mythical beasts and heroes and mash them up so that it looks awesome wearing it around.

Create a Design based on '' Black and White.'' It is nice sometimes, to get away from color. Color can be blinding sometimes. It can be distracting. Very colorful might not be thematically very bright. So go ahead and create a design that has only shades of black and white. Exploit that spectrum. Create something that will put color to shame.

It has to be a simple idea that would make another person go WOOOW! when it shines in the bright Sun. Go ahead and let your design soak up the Sun!

**Create a design based on the theme " Time Travel."**Here is what you have to do. Go back in time or go far ahead into time. See what could have been changed. See what could be changed. Pick that imagination and make it into a design that will speak out strong on a tee. Take this trip.

Create a design based on the theme Threadless Loves Partying! Haven't you been to a party and seen someone wear something and went, 'Wow, maybe I should have worn that, maybe I should have made that!'. Well, it's your time to make something that would put all other party gowns and suits to shame. Create a cool party wear design on the tee. Wear it and let all eyes be on you.

Create a design based on Threadless Loves Twists. You have heard of Seth Grahame-Smith. He is the guy who twisted Abe Lincoln's history into a Vampire Hunt and put Zombies inside 'Pride and Prejudice'. This, is the TWIST. Your aim is to make a design that will take a well known/ humble/fantastic/famous story and twist it is a way, it would make heads turn. Or roll.

Create a design based on Threadless Loves Outdoors. Your aim is to create the perfect tee that can be worn to a nice outdoor event. Like a holiday, a fishing trip, maybe a picnic, a family get together somewhere in the valley. It has to features beautiful elements of mother nature. Wind and water, the rains, Earth and wood. Birds and rocks. Make it look awesome, so that one look at the design will make you smell the earth, our home.

Create a design based on the theme, Changing World. It's not rocket science. We all know how much humans have screwed around with mother nature and let things go out of hand. Land fills, melting ice caps, swans swimming in oil, polar bears looking to migrate, shaking earth, garbage in the atmosphere, dying animals, sick humans, lost children. It's all happening. Slow, but still happening. Create a design invoking awareness into this bad change that is slowly swallowing everything we have been doing to evolve. Shout it out, though that tee.

Create a design based on the theme, The Unknown Deep. What could be there deep in the ocean? Deeper than the deepest depths that we have come to know? Maybe ancient creatures who have been hiding because the surface has become hostile? Maybe treasures? Maybe all the myths come to life there. It is up to you to decide. Make a design based on an underwater experience that you think will be fantastic. Make it shades of blue and green and coral. Make it look as if, the one wearing that design, is submerged in all that blue fantasy.
