Wrangle the rhombus and place that parallelogram! This week’s challenge will test Spoonflower artists’ inventiveness to create a seamless repeat using simple shapes.


Overview

Equipped with precise angles and smooth curves, we’re looking for fresh takes on small-scale geometric designs that can create distinctive face masks or adventurous apparel. Clean or complex, colorful or monochromatic, repetitive or varied; these designs can grab the viewer’s attention with just about any approach.
