About The Challenge
SCORING CHALLENGE: Score 50 Threadless Select: Backpacks designs by 8/9. One lucky voter gets a backpack!
We hate to break it to ya, but summer’s on its last dregs. Soon it’ll be time to pack away the sunscreen and break out the books. But don’t fret, there’s one exciting thing about heading back to school: new supplies! And even better, you get to design every aspect of the most essential item in any back-to-school wardrobe.
You can create a simple pattern or design for both the outside and inside of the new Select Backpack. If your design is chosen, you will also help pick the stitching, straps, buckles, pockets, and interior organization of the backpack. But you need to be speedy, because this challenge will end super fast!
Once submissions close on August 10, we’ll immediately begin creating the chosen design right here in the USA. The backpacks will be cut, sewn, and produced in a factory located three miles from Threadless HQ in Chicago. We’ll share behind-the-scenes video of the production process daily until the backpack is released. Starting August 20, we’ll start selling a limited run of 250 backpacks just in time for the back to school season.
Please limit your design to 5 colors or less.
You have less than two weeks to submit your design, so sharpen your #2 pencils, download the submission kit, and get to work!
