I participated in a t-shirt design challenge which world renowned apparel company Threadless organised. Teaming up with children's TV programme Sesame Street, the theme for the challenge was none other than the Sesame Street characters themselves! Being a fan of the show myself while growing up, I decided to choose my favourite character Cookie Monster as an inspiration for the design. I figured that to draw the character itself would be boring and unoriginal, I decided to go for a slightly abstract approach. I stuck with Cookie Monster's crazy eyes as they are easily distinguishable and typography to build up the rest of its face. I finished it off with the "C" looking like a piece of cookie that has been bitten off, just to add a little punch to it.
It was my first time ever submitting to Threadless. Though I have been designing tees and submitting my designs to other apparel companies, this is by far, the biggest platform I've ever explored. And guess what! MY DESIGN WAS CHOSEN!!!!!!
The design is now up for sale on Threadless official online store: HERE!
