From slithering snakes to captivating crocodiles, lizards, chameleons, and turtles too, this week's design challenge celebrates the Reptilia class, but with a colorful twist. Put those neutral shades away and break out your best bright, bold palette for this one!


Overview

While many reptiles can be a bit frightening for some, your design should showcase a fun and whimsical take on our scaly, ectothermic friends in a design that could be perfect for a variety of applications from garment sewing to wallpaper and home decor.
