Donald Duck T-Shirt Design Challenge

by Threadless / None /


Design a t-shirt inspired by Donald Duck

He’s got style and on-screen personality, so it’s no surprise that Donald Fauntleroy Duck has landed major roles in cartoons and comics over the past 77 years. Feature films, short films, video games, TV, books, you name it! Donald has done it all. And even though he’s been at it for years, this iconic character shows no signs of retiring his sailor cap any time soon.

Your challenge is to design a t-shirt inspired by Donald Duck. Plenty of tees already feature his legendary yellow-orange bill and smiling eyes, so use this challenge as an opportunity to create a unique design that captures the essence of Donald’s being, like his cheerfulness or penchant for losing his temper. Capture classic Donald, or adventurer Donald, or whichever Donald you like!

UP FOR GRABS -$2000 cash -$250 Threadless gift certificate -Jeff Shelly’s original 11x14 sketch of Donald Duck framed with the chosen design -$700 in Donald Duck prizes

Threadspotting: Vlog Edition

by KyleGeib / None /

Ahoy, Threadlubbers!

Here at Threadless, we know just how exciting and awesome online communities can be. This week’s Threadspotting, therefore, will be dedicated to some awesome vloggers doing very special work with their vlog community– and they’ve been spotted doing so in Threadless gear! WOOT!

Brothers Hank and John Green are the minds behind the very funny, perfectly nerdy Vlogbrothers channel on Youtube, but their reputations don’t stop there. The community that they’ve built around these vlogs, lovingly called Nerd Fighters, have taken it upon themselves to “fight world suck,” as they put it. Through their vlogs, music (yes, music!) and online community, these guys have been helping raise money for various charities.

Both Gary and Leah have spotted Hank wearing some classic Threadless tees. Thanks guys, and thank you, Hank!

Make sure to check out Project for Awesome, a project these guys created that asks Youtubers to upload videos promoting their favorite charities on one specific day with the hopes of flooding Youtube with enough videos to spread some awareness and raise some money! So cool!

Remember, as always, if you see Threadless tees in the wild, send us a note at and we'll talk about them here... AND we'll give you some Street Team Points to boot! Enjoy!
