Threadless Loves Sharpie Winner

There are many things we feel nostalgic toward when thinking of the 1980′s. Some miss the hot pink makeup and intoxicating fumes of Aqua Net, others long for the sweet serenade of a young Lionel Richie. While you could go on waiting for Doc’s time machine to work, there’s no need because Threadless & Sharpie are here to fill that big neon void in your heart.

In February, Threadless and Sharpie held a design contest challenging you to design a t-shirt inspired by Sharpie’s new 80′s Glam Limited Edition colors. After reviewing hundreds of designs, we’ve chosen a winner!

Congratulations to Rodrigo Leonardo Batista Ferreira and cheers to his winning design, Nostalgia

Nostaligia by Rodrigo Leonardo Batista Ferreira

 
“I can’t imagine an image that relates more to the 80′s for me. Who never rewind / fast forward a cassette tape using a pen/pencil to save Walkman’s batteries? Glamorous.” -Ferreira

The Nostalgia tee is available for purchase on Threadless in S, M, L, XL, 2XL for both guys and girls. Get em while they’re hot! 

for the boys

for the gals

The Hello Project centers around giving people the opportunity to say HELLO on one of the smallest, most well-known surfaces… the sticky note!  The process is simple, on a 3×3 sticky note, write, sketch, doodle your version of hello. Scan it in and email it to hi@thehelloproject.com, any day of the week and then they’ll post it on their website.  Cool right!?

Now, The Hello Project & Sharpie are excited to present this month’s contest:

A panel of 3 undisclosed judges will select the three (3) winning submissions. Winners will be announced on Monday October 4, 2010 on The Hello Project and the Sharpie Blog.
