Important Update—Please Read

Whether your Sun is in Sagittarius or your rising sign is in Pisces, this week’s design challenge destiny will be left up to the heavens. From daily horoscopes and natal charts to zodiac constellations, we encourage you to find harmony in your repeating designs featuring all things astrology.


Overview

With this week's challenge comes a twist! Every week, Spoonflower employees watch from the sidelines as you, our creative community, participate in the weekly design challenges. For one week out of the year, the roles are reversed and employees step off the sidelines and onto the design field to create a design for the annual employee design challenge.  This year, employees will participate alongside the Spoonflower designer community in the Astrology Design Challenge–but don't worry–there's no home team advantage here. 

Prizes

  • 1st place winner will receive a $200 Spoonflower credit.
  • 2nd place winner will receive a $100 Spoonflower credit.
  • 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Spoonflower credit.
  • Remaining top 10 designs will receive a $20 Spoonflower credit. The top 50 popularly-voted designs from each theme will be automatically made available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace (provided they are a verified seller) where they will receive 10% commission on every sale -- no $5 swatch required.

Astrology Details

  • The deadline for entries is Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at 3 PM EST.
