Twine here – we’ve got something super exciting to share with you!
Note: We’ve had an update! Check out our new and improved Ultimate Design Challenge! Now packed with challenges for a variety of specialisms – we’ve taken the best bits of the Logo, UI & Illustration Challenge, and combined them to create the pinnacle of design inspiration. Sign up here!
We’ve heard all about this dreaded artist block that’s filling the heads of our fellow creatives out there, and we’ve decided enough is enough.
That’s right, our terrific Design Team has started a weekly Twine Logo Design Challenge for our incredible community of over 400,000 freelancers, with the aim of:
- Allowing freelancers to challenge themselves creatively
- Helping you avoid artist’s block
- Showcasing the work of our freelancers within the Twine ecosystem
Here’s how our Logo Design Challenge will work…
- Each week, you’ll receive our Logo Design Challenge through your inbox 💌
- The challenge will have a specific topic or theme – completely random, which makes it all the more fun! 🏖
- Sometimes, we may add an artistic constraint to the challenge – e.g. you can only use 2 colours or work with a certain ratio etc 🌈
- Once you’re finished – post your designs to #twinelogodesignchallenge and share your creativity with the rest of the Twine Community! 🤗
Each week, Twine sends out a weekly creative challenge (Logo Design, UI Design, Illustration – seriously, we have a challenge for everyone!) designed for you to let loose and have your imagination running wild! Our challenge briefs are fun and have no limits – great practice when you’re looking to build a great portfolio, and secure work with future clients.
For example, this was our Logo Design Challenge for Week 1 – to see the complete and up-to-date list of all the Logo Design Challenges, plus the incredible entries, click here.
“Design a logo for a café that incorporates a rose, a leaf and a cup.“
Our incredibly talented freelancers seriously know their stuff! We’ve had some amazing submissions over on the #twinelogodesignchallenge hashtag on Instagram – seriously, check these guys out!

Why not get involved?
Our weekly design challenges began as part of our wider mission – to empower creative individuals.
Whether you sign up for one or more of our weekly challenge series – or even if you’re just browsing through this list, you’re setting yourself up for creative success!
Let’s take a look at the benefits, shall we…
Practice makes perfect:
If you’re looking to tighten up your drawing skills, practicing often is the way to go. Our list of design challenge ideas allows you to create at your own pace – plus, we’re updating constantly. You’ll never run out of fresh content again!
Beat the BLOCK:
Our freelancers haven’t been shy when telling us all about the dreaded artist’s block – one of the biggest struggles that creatives face.
At Twine, we’ve got you covered – our design ideas give you a clear framework to work from – including style, text, color, and even an example client brief!
Build your portfolio:
When breaking into the industry as a freelancer, you’ll need a diverse portfolio to show prospective clients. This is where these design ideas come in handy! After each week, make sure you’re saving and sharing your creations in order to build your own creative archive.
(We also know how hard it can be to gain valuable experience when you’re first starting out – so we’ve geared our design ideas around the type of briefs you’d typically receive from a paying client!)
Network with creatives like YOU:
At Twine, we’re not just a freelancing platform. We’re a global community of over 400,000 creatives – just like you.
Our design challenges have grown an incredible following behind them, with participants supporting and promoting each other’s work on social media.
Show off your work:
Every week, our in-house design team compiles together their favorite entries from our weekly design challenges. These are then promoted across Twine’s Instagram accounts – a combined total of over 900,000 followers. This is a huge opportunity for exposure, credibility, and opportunities to network with other creatives – so make sure you post your work online (followed by the relevant hashtag) to be in with a shot!
We hope this has given you some inspiration and enriched your artistic senses. Our challenges are all for fun, you’ve got complete creative freedom – so, we hope you’ll consider joining in and getting involved!
