Today we have a very special giveaway from a design community darling you’re all likely familiar with. That’s right, Threadless. It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 10 years since they burst onto the scene in 2000, and our ironic t-shirt wearing lives have never been the same. Avid Threadless member or not, you’ll want this gorgeous 10 year documentation of graphic design, pop-culture, and accidental business savvy.
ABOUT THE BOOK-
Threadless recounts the 10 year journey founder Jake Nickell and company have been on ever since they decided to post a t-shirt contest (in the forum thread of another t-shirt contest) resulting in the very first, Threadless tee. With over 300 awesome designs and contributions from the likes of Seth Godin and John Maeda, as well as favorite community designers, this book, designed by a-side studio, is a must have and a coffee table gem.
ABOUT THE COMPANY-
Threadless is one of the internet's most creative design communities, or as founder Jake Nickell put it, "a giant group of friends making cool designs." And while that’s definitely the attitude, the sentiment is pretty modest considering Inc magazine called them, “The most innovative small company in America.” Truly a company after out own hearts, Threadless is a place for design community and inspiration. This is their story.
ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY-
Participation in this giveaway is easy, simply write a comment on this post telling us about your favorite Threadless tee and what you like best about artistic community. Best two comments gets a free book, and the runners up get shirts :)
