ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®) today announced that the Innovation Movement, in partnership with Threadless.com, the community-based tee shirt company, is launching a new design challenge inspired by innovation. The winner, whose design will be produced for retail, will receive a free trip to the 2010 International CES in Las Vegas and a host of other prizes.
Designers are asked to depict technology innovations of the past, present or future, depending on how they are inspired by the challenge. The national grassroots Innovation Movement has mobilized more than 35,000 Americans in support of innovation-friendly public policies such as international trade, alternative energy and broadband, that advance the U.S. innovation economy.
“Design, creativity and imagination are inherent in the innovation process,” said CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro. “We’re excited to see how the Threadless design community envisions innovation as an aspect of technological invention, economic change and public policy.”
