We’re heading to the mediterranean to celebrate the artistic culture of Greece. This week we’re challenging you to create a repeating design inspired by one of these art forms. From ancient Greek ruins to mythological creatures, greek keys to evil eyes, we hope you won't be saying “it’s all Greek to me” by the end of this challenge!


Overview

The Spoonflower community is a melting pot of designers from all over the world and during January’s design challenge, we’ll be celebrating this designer diversity with a sampler of five international inspired themes. We’ll be starting our adventure in Africa with a challenge celebrating the newest exhibit at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and ending our excursion in Turkey honoring a handwoven form of artistic expression. Pack your tool box because it’s time for a design adventure!
