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!

Maybe half the number of windows? I like it better with them but it seems kind of overpowering with so many.

Yeah the sutle windows look better, I'd still have some widows not there, you know like the lights not on tharefor you can't see it, just randomly scattered around. But great job!

I might add to your confusion, but I like the first version more maybe with less windows. But anyways the subtle windows looks good too.

Also this, haha

Thanks Ryder :) And big thanks for coming up with this challenge. Seriously I wouldn't have made any such designs if it was not for this challenge and I can think of many more but time doesn't allow me to make more.
