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!

Nope, it's not all his. That's a compilation of minimalist art done by a participating threadless member, 3 or 4 years back.
