NaNoWriMo theme

This article discusses the annual NaNoWriMo themes. For other uses, see Theme.

The NaNoWriMo theme is an idea or topic that centers a yearly NaNoWriMo event's merchandise and graphics. The theme also guides NaNoWriMo's messaging and the names of merchandise items in the NaNoWriMo Store.

While the earlier years of NaNoWriMo primarily used the yearly theme for the changing participant icon designs, the theme eventually extended to its current reach of messaging and merchandise, especially after NaNoWriMo became a nonprofit. This helps gives each year a distinct theme while retaining the overall NaNoWriMo feeling.
