We'd really love some cool designs to choose from that designers might like to wear themselves. The brief is really very open (good and bad I guess!). One idea is to do things that relate to the graphic design world in general...maybe using copy like '360dpi' or 'CKMY' - general words that other designers would recognize.
I like long sleeve black t-shirts, but that's just my preference - the others in our office might like pink or loud colours. I like subtle designs with branding very minimal, whereas others like big bold designs shouting 'Pixmac'. I guess you need to try and design something that you would wear yourself to the pub ! (if you win, I'll send you one of the printed ones...and you can do just that!). Also...nothing to do with the brief - but the T-shirt will be printed on heavy good quality cotton..nothing worse than a cheap t-shirt eh?
As a stock photography company - we ask you to avoid using anything that is a trademark or has intellectual property issues - so no Marlyn Monroe or anything like that as we'd not be able to use it.
I am uploading our normal 'fingerprint' logo (which isn't on our site at the moment..as we have a guest 'Turkey icon' on there for USA Thanksgiving!)
We also have recently 'adopted' a little pink monkey that you might like to use. He's not been introduced into our branding yet - so a T-shirt with him would be his world 'debut' !
