Whether it’s the hairdressers trimming our bangs with masks on, the delivery driver tirelessly dropping off packages to our doorstep, or the restaurant workers and baristas creating our to-go orders, one thing we’re really grateful for these days are the unsung heroes within the service industry. Your challenge this week is to create a pattern that celebrates the tools needed to get the job done!


Overview

Remember, we’re looking for designs created at a smaller scale, with face masks in mind as the end-use application. Your design will preview on a swatch in voting.

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.
