About The Challenge
Have you ever been jolted awake in the night by a really brilliant idea — perhaps a business or invention that could make the world a better place or even an amazing Threadless t-shirt design — only to scribble it a notebook and never follow through? Maybe you just needed a bit of help, inspiration, and know-how to turn your idea into a tangible thing. And that’s exactly the purpose of Chicago Ideas Week.
From October 10 to 16, more than 100 speakers from all over the world will bring their insights and ideas to Chicago. Throughout the week, they will discuss critical issues, social topics, and breakthrough concepts that are changing today's world in a variety of fields including tech and web, creative processes, film, and food. Your challenge is to create a t-shirt design inspired by the theme of ideas. The chosen design will be worn by staff, volunteers, and available for purchase to nearly 15,000 Chicago Ideas Week participants.
100% of net proceeds from the sale of the chosen tee will go to Chicago Ideas Week, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The tee will be available at Threadless.
*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.
