The challenge was

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 winner received

  • $2,000 cash

  • $500 Threadless gift code

  • $300 Lego gift code
