10-10-10 contest

Threadless is currently holding a contest where they will award three lucky designers $10k each. The only criteria is "to design something iconic".

I immediately thought of two separate concepts... "Rock Paper Scissors" and "Wizard of Oz". I seem to associate iconic with bold and graphic, so here are my two submissions.

Weapon of Choice - The eternal battle between Rock, Paper and Scissors summed up in this iconic design. Be sure to check out the flash presentation!

Weapon of Choice - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

Forecast - Today's forecast includes periods of song, dance... and complete calamity! Be careful as this storm system will bring a chance of flying monkey poo as well - don't forget to pack an umbrella!

I could not think of anything more iconic than Wizard of Oz. This design captures the moment Dorothy and friends meet the Wicked Witch of the West and her team of Flying Monkeys. I imagined the quartet was not amused… not at all.

forecast - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

There have already been some fantastic submissions, including Raging Randa 2000 by the super talented Vince Chui!
