The challenge was

Come on, everybody. Hug it out.

Embrace your next Design Challenge.

The pandemic has been a sobering reminder of all the simple things in life we take for granted, such as being able to hug our loved ones. Hugs are hugely beneficial to our overall well-being. They can lower stress levels, defuse conflict, and even regulate our mood by boosting levels of dopamine and serotonin. But most importantly, they make us feel connected to one another.

For your next challenge, we want you to use hugs as inspiration. What does a hug do? It comforts you during tough moments. It affirms love. It brings people together literally and metaphorically. Those are just a few of the ideas that can help you think up a new design that gives people the feels. Consider using soothing hues that can reduce stress, such as yellow or green, or drawing up something that symbolizes connectedness and compassion, like a globe or a lotus flower. Or, if you hate hugs, you can go the complete opposite route and let everyone know you prefer to be loved from a distance.

Bring it in for a group hug with this Design Challenge.
