Few objects capture the blissful enchantment of the holiday season like a snow globe, whose contents burst to life in blizzardy glory with only a gentle shake. Now that the holiday season is racing toward our chimneys, let’s look to snow globes for some yuletide inspiration for the next Design Challenge.
What are the key features of a snow globe? It encases a miniaturized scene within a glass dome. It’s filled with water, “snow,” and glitter. It’s a classic toy still beloved by children around the world. With those details fresh in your mind, create a new design that recognizes the holiday season in a unique way.
The possibilities are endless. You could spoof a yearly tradition such as gift giving, illustrate an abominable snowman shoveling his driveway, or show shoppers duking it out in a department store. Whatever you decide, consider framing everything in a glass orb, or incorporating snowy and glittery details to create your version of a winter wonderland.
This contest opens to entries on October 16th, 2020 and ends on October 30th. One winner will earn $500 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. All designers printed will earn up to $7 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
