The challenge was

Create a design for a t-shirt with your words of wisdom.

Every morning you wake up and stare yourself down in the mirror whispering “pull yourself together.” Or maybe your inner monologue speaks more poetically, reminding you to "make epic sh*t."

Whatever sweet nothings make up your mantra, we wanna hear em’. Give us the words that encourage you to achieve creative new heights, or just the motivational advice that gets you out the door. It can be short and sweet like "Do better." Or you can write us your personal manifesto. It should be the kind of message you hang on your office wall to get you going.

Design a tee with the words of wisdom that inspire you.
