AUG 12, 2020

To celebrate Spoonflower’s 500th Design Challenge, we are shining the spotlight on you the artists, for we would not be us without you! We’re so grateful that you’ve stuck with us for 500 Weekly Design Challenges, and are still in awe of your talent every single day. To honor the community we’ve built together, we’re inviting you to share a fresh design that showcases your signature style and creative contribution to the world. No matter the topic or medium, consider how this design will let your personality shine as an individual and as an artist. This is an open theme challenge that honors the immense talent and diverse styles within our community, and the only guidepost is to be true to yourself.
