Calling all Creative Friends of Knock Knock! Enter Our Twitter Background Design Contest!

This year marks our tenth anniversary (as if you didn’t already know). And while we’re reveling in our milestones from the past decade, we’re also starting to look outward. What in the hell does that mean? Our head honcho Jen wrote it best: “Over the last decade, it’s been all we could do to get our own stuff done, to create all our cards and products and books in-house. We’ve barely looked up. Right now, however, Knock Knock is at the disruptive inflection point of a synergistic paradigm shift. We’re making a change not just to look up, but to look out.”

And we are, friends, on all fronts—including the “Twitter-sphere.” (Please forgive us for using “Twitter-sphere” in an actual sentence.)

So Twitter users, you’ve seen our current Twitter background, yes? Well, we’re ready to give it a face-lift. And we want you to design it. Yes, we’re pointing right at you, friend.

Redesign our Twitter background, and you could win a 10-Year Anniversary Prize Pack (seen below).


We’ll pick one winner and update our background with his or her design, alongside sending the winner a 10-Year Anniversary Prize Package—an exclusive tenth anniversary canvas tote bag filled with our top-selling products.

Design a new Twitter background for us, and you could win all of this. Yes, all of this.

This prize package includes:

• Exclusive 10-Year Anniversary Tote Bag

WTF Sticky Note

High Five Nifty Note
