From 1919 to 1933, the Bauhaus School was the epicenter of architecture, art and design; it's often regarded as the “most influential school of all time.” The Bauhaus movement had a core style of clean geometric forms, balanced visual composition, bold typography, striking colors & a futuristic yet functional look. Using these iconic elements, create a repeating design reflective of this art form.


Overview

Can you believe Spoonflower’s very first design challenge was held almost 8 years ago? The daffodils theme challenged the Spoonflower community for the very first time and holli_zollinger’s daffodils_yellow won the hearts of the community as she took home our very first grand prize. Since then, the weekly prompts have made Thursdays our favorite day of the week (after Saturday, of course!). We can’t wait to see what designs make it into the winners’ circle during our May and June challenges.


If this is your very first challenge, don’t forget to review how to submit an entry before you get started and as always, have fun!
