This theme brings to mind hard angles, bright colors, repeating patterns. You might want to think about trends from the 1980s (checkerboard Vans, anyone?) and make sure you check out this list of geometric shapes from Wikipedia. Try searching Google or Flickr for inspiration!
You can enter the challenge with an item you already have listed in your shop or you can make a special item specifically for the challenge!
There are some rules for the Theme Challenge:
