There’s something about the perfect T-shirt − one that’s stylish, eco-friendly and comfortable − that just makes life seem a little bit brighter. Holstee, our recent partner, agrees.

Holstee is a lifestyle brand that expertly combines sustainability with functional and minimal design. When the founders began in 2009, they launched a line of shirts made of 100% recycled plastic bottles where 10% of all sales were donated to entrepreneurs in extreme poverty. This began their tradition of environmental awareness and corporate social responsibility and now, after much growth and success, Holstee’s offerings have come to include 100% organic cotton T-shirts, upcycled wallets, organic cotton bibs and more. They haven’t strayed from their killer design aesthetic or their dedication to giving back and this is apparent in their powerful manifesto:

An excerpt:

“This is your life.

Do what you love,

and do it often.”

So, in the spirit of Holstee creation, we bring you the “This Is Your Life” T-Shirt Design Contest, where you can unleash your creativity and embrace life. Please join us.

The Challenge:

Soon-to-be-designers: your challenge is to create a T-shirt design concept that combines the Holstee lifestyle and what’s meaningful to you. Take a look at their brand aesthetic and use it, but don’t lose your own point of view. Submit your T-shirt design in pictograph form, words, a drawing or video − however you feel best expresses the life of your design.

Here’s some inspiration advice from the Holstee team:

"Fads come and go, but simplicity and quality are timeless. We don't design based on the latest trends but rather focus on what will stand the test of time, not only in their material life but in their design aesthetic." 
- Dave Radparvar, Co-Founder & Head Designer
