Threadless’s Curse Words design contest

Turn to the dark side of the dictionary in Threadless‘s new Curse Words t-shirt design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Do we like to swear? You bet your ass we do! Curse words are the funnest damned words to say. They’re surprising, they’re naughty, and they make people squirm. Depending on your tone and delivery, they can add oomph to your sentence or intensify your meaning. For example, there’s a big difference between “cold” and “cold as fuck.” How many degrees? We don’t know exactly, but you should probably wear a coat.

For your next Design Challenge, we encourage you to turn off your filter. No dagnabbits, fiddlesticks, or snickerdoodles. We want you to go full swear ahead, featuring those delectable curse words in all of their profane glory. You might consider basing your design around a common phrase such as “Get your shit together” or “Tha fuck?” Or maybe you’d like to illustrate a literal asshat, or show a metric shit ton to human scale. Heck, if you’re a fan of language and prose, you could even draw a portrait of William Fuckin’ Shakespeare himself. Don’t be afraid to go blue! We won’t ground you or give you detention.
