Seasonal Savings: 20% Off Everything

Chocolate covered faces and sticky fingers come to mind when thinking about warm summer visits to the neighborhood ice cream truck. A joyful sign of the season, they make their rounds serving the sweetest of treats to kids of all ages. In this week’s challenge, we are looking for designs inspired by the nostalgic melodies, frozen novelties, and sprints down the street to the Ice Cream Truck!


Overview

Here’s the scoop: Challenge results will be revealed just in time for National Ice Cream Day celebrations in July, so whip together a colorfully cute repeating pattern being careful to avoid logos and brands in your designs. We can’t wait to see what you churn up!
