    New T-Shirt Ideas

    There's been some recent discussion about PhotographyREVIEW.com T-shirts. The old ones are now collector's items. And we've changed the logo since that shirt was made. So it's time for a new one. Let's do it right.

    If you've got a good idea, make a T-shirt design and post it here. It has to incorporate the PhotographyREVIEW.com logo. And I'd like to see it somehow embrace both the whole field of photography and digital. That's tough, I think. I haven't had any ideas - that's part of the reason we haven't made a new T-shirt.

    We'll let the community decide which design is best. If you're design gets chosen, you'll get a free shirt and I'll throw in a $50 gift certificate for B&H. How does that sound?

    So watcha got? Entertain me

    Re: New T-Shirt Ideas

    Nice idea John, the B&H voucher is of little use to me, how about a collector's item original T-shirt?
    Oh, that's assuming I win I suppose

    Is it the design that counts, not producing finished artwork?
    Or should we actually produce the image?

    I'm sure we can come up with a B&H equivalent if the most popular design comes from outside North America. Unfortunately, unless you can wear a small T-shirt, there aren't any left. I only have a couple and they're for tiny people.

    Yeah - it's just the design that matters. The final artwork can be produced in-house. Plus, that makes it possible for everyone to participate.

    Logo Art

    Per skyman's request, here's some logo art. I'm not gonna give out the EPS files because not everyone would know what to do with them and they aren't really necessary. We don't need a finished, ready to print, piece. We just need a good design. We'll have one of our in-house people get it ready to print.

    So where are the T-shirt designs, anyway?!!? I'm surprised we haven't already seen a few.

    Re: Logo Art

    John, I certainly would like to buy a tee-shirt when it is ready, as I have benefited alot from this site and find it to be one of the better ones on the web.Personally, of the two logos you posted I find i like the one on the bottom best. It seems to have a more polished, professional look about it.
    please do not edit and repost my photos

    Re: New T-Shirt Ideas

    The new T-shirt will be designed and chosen by the community. The logos are for people to use when making T-shirt designs. Feel free to make a design and participate. And when we have a design, you can buy one

    Re: New T-Shirt Ideas

    You've seen my photo - tiny I am not !!

    I'm stuck on "Matrix Metering" or "Colour Matrix" because probably the most well known digital image is that cascading green display from The Matrix. I think it's a dead end though, because despite seeing very similar screens in adverts there are probably copyright issues we'd fall foul of.

    Back to the (virtual) drawing board ...

    Well, I don't expect anyone will really care for my design, but here it is anyway.

    I have a thing for simplisity. So i tried to think of what I would like to have on a T-shirt I would want to wear.

    Shirt


    Logo

    Finally!

    Thanks, John. We finally have a design. So far this is the winner

    That's not a dig at you, almo. I'm just amazed that it took this long to just get one design.

    No need to be a perfectionist! I know you guys have ideas. Let's see them!

    I just found this tread a few hours ago. I made my shirt just after reading it.

    I like that faded logo, but not the border.

    Re: New T-Shirt Ideas

    Feeling guilty that i haven't posted anything yet here are my offerings:
    I like the classic Polo better than a T and for the winter months the long sleeve (with the aperture blades on the back) i didn;t want to stray to far from the brief but like the idea of having a slogan on the back (rather than the logo)

    C'mon Now!

    Either you guys are a little gunshy or you just don't quite know how to do this. This is a visual jam session. Start jumping in and showing us what you've got. Don't worry about whether it's appropriate, good quality, silly, etc. Just get in there and start playing. This is a creative group. Let it flow.

    I don't qualify and we won't use one of my designs. But here's one I just busted out in about half an hour. I had the idea, took a quick picture, and voila! Let's see what you can do.

    Re: C'mon Now!

    You totally nabbed my shirt....

    Yeah I did! And I did a crappy job of it, too But that's sort of the point. I'm guessing everyone is being too much of a perfectionist. I know people have ideas. And there are great artists and photographers here. So what's up? Let's see some of those ideas. Quick and dirty! We can polish them up later. Right now we want to get the ideas flowing.

    Hey you all.

    I am all about brainstorming ideas and getting creative. Unfortunately, I have no inspirations for this project yet. But it's somewhere in my occipital lobe being worked on by my subconscious.

    Does the logo have to remain basically the same idea?
