The challenge was
Create a t-shirt design inspired by the music of Tegan and Sara.
We admit it: We’re crushing hard on Tegan and Sara. And who could blame us? The twin sister duo has drawn indie scene dedication for over a decade, but with their latest outing, Heartthrob, they’ve blossomed into full-on pop stars. Give the hook-laden single “Closer” a spin, and the obsession will kick in. You’ll be swooning over the Canadian sisters, scrawling their names on your notebook, pasting their pictures in your locker.
Your challenge is to create an original t-shirt design inspired by the infectious infatuation of Tegan and Sara’s new album, Heartthrob. Get inspired by the heart thumping, pulse quickening aspects of swelling desire. Give us a design that is anything but oh-so-typical. Check out a preview of Heartthrob for inspiration.
