The challenge was
Create a t-shirt design inspired by creatures of the forest.
Imagine yourself sitting within the quiet confines of a serene forest, a world where old growth and ascending new life exists simultaneously. The bird’s song creates your soundscape, unrepeatable and composed in perfect harmony with the gentle rustling of a nearby fawn surprised by your unexpected presence. You have a spiritual moment, at peace with nature and your place in the universe.
Now it’s your turn to show your appreciation for the wondrous macrocosm we live in as we team up with Music for Relief to help protect humanity’s balance with nature. We challenge you to channel your inner being and create a design inspired by creatures of the forest.
Founded in 2005 by the rock music masterminds and general do-gooders of Linkin Park, the non-profit organization Music for Relief has raised over $5 million for natural disaster relief and environmental programs aimed at disaster risk mitigation. The organization has helped survivors of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, 2010 Haiti earthquake, and most recently Hurricane Sandy and Oklahoma tornadoes. Music for Relief has also restored wetlands, funded conservation, and planted more than 1 million trees to combat climate change.
Here at Threadless, we love mother nature and all of her creatures! That might be pretty apparent by the abundance of flora and fauna we feature on many of our tees. So, dance with ideas of wolves or flirt with foxes and fawns to spawn an organic design to the envy of all naturalists. 25% of the net proceeds from the sale of the t-shirt will be donated to Music for Relief and there’s a Macbook Pro and some seriously sweet art prizes at stake to culture your own creative natural growth too!
