About The Challenge
More people live in cities than ever before, and many of them are taking their bikes to the city streets. Cyklar, bicicletas, and vélos are fun and inexpensive and they’re infiltrating asphalt cracks of cities across the world! For this challenge, create a t-shirt design inspired by the street, the bike, and the people of the urban biking movement. Take to the city streets. Visit bike hangouts. Research the history of urban cycling. Look at how bikes are reshaping your own city, from the social and economical impact to music, design, photography, and street art.
Keep in mind Chrome believes in simple, honest design; stuff that works well on a bike and in the bar. Create a design with all sorts of urban bikers in mind — commuters, professional messengers, fixed-gear freestyle riders, and journeymen on cargo bikes. We'll choose several designs from this challenge. We'll sell one on Threadless and the rest exclusively in Chrome stores and online.
The purpose of this challenge is to create a stand-alone design inspired by the theme, not a brand tee. Your design should not have brand names or logos on it.
