The Minimalism Challenge (Post your ideas/progress here!)


Create a design using simple shapes, less lines and half the halftones.


The Minimalism Challenge began after Threadless community member Ryder Doty created a series called “Threadless Minimalism” showcasing various community members in their most minimal form. From there a challenge was born that captured the creativity and ingenuity of Threadless artists around the globe. Now, in its fourth year, the Minimalism Challenge is back!


How much can you say using as little as possible? Strip an idea down to bare bones without losing the concept. You’ll be surprised how little you really need!


The Challenge is LIVE!

Go Here to Submit!


Feel free to post your WIP images or your final sub links here so we can see the awesomeness!

So much good work! I hope we see lots of prints from this comp. Anyway, here's my first attempt. It's called "Anticipation" and it's an out-of-season concept. Is it xmas yet?!!

New WIP. critiques welcomed! this idea may have been done many times in various ways, but what do you all think? Im thinking of having less film sticking out, and just a small portion of the picture frame sticking out, just enough space for the sad smile. IDK.

Tentative titles: "tough times in a digital world" "Negative"

Idea I had about a year ago called Mondrian Mime Catcher. Initial idea was way different but thought this rework of it would fit in with the challenge given that it's based on Mondrian. Just something for fun, now it's outta my head and I can move on :)
