Threadless and Cartoon Network Enterprises Team up for Regular Show T-shirt Design Challenge!
Threadless’ Design Community to Create Original Regular Show Artwork for Graphic T-Shirts
Cartoon Network’s Emmy® Award-winning Regular Show animated series sprung from the zany mind of creator and show-runner J.G. Quintel, but now the rad-tastic show is calling upon the members of Threadless’ global design community to reimagine the world of Mordecai and Rigby through brand-spanking new art. Kicking off today, the Threadless.com design challenge will give artists three weeks to submit their original designs. The approved submissions will be voted on by the Threadless global community of 2.4 million members through April 29th. The winning designs will be printed as graphic t-shirts and sold exclusively on Threadless.com. The contest can be found at http://www.threadless.com/regularshow/.
Cartoon Network Enterprises, the licensing and merchandising arm of the network, and Threadless previously combined efforts for an incredibly successful Adventure Time design challenge in 2011. The winning designs have been Threadless fan favorites ever since.
Debuting in September of 2010, Regular Show follows the day-to-day adventures of best buds Mordecai and Rigby, a blue jay and a raccoon who often get mixed up in over-the-top predicaments while avoiding their jobs as groundskeepers of a park. With the tagline “It’s anything but,” Regular Show’s off-the-wall humor and goofy characters fit perfectly with Threadless’ creative community of graphic artists. Earning itself an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Short-format Animated Program, Regular Show has become a Cartoon Network staple for both kids and adults.
The winning design from the challenge will receive $2,500 cash, a $500 Threadless gift certificate, and a Cartoon Network prize pack stuffed with Regular Show goodies.
