Project description

We need a t-shirt designed for our members. Please read all of the parameters: use of specific colors in our logo, the maximum number of colors is three and any design depicting a tropical bird, mammal or plant must be accurate. Our audience consists of tropical biologists and they will know if it is incorrect. The design can not include sleeve elements or wrap-a-round designs - sorry! 

Audience: Our members (primarily environmental scientists) have the option of receiving a t-shirt as an appreciation gift for their annual membership donation. We have been designing t-shirts for over 30 years and the new shirt design is much anticipated each year. The most popular designs have included images which represent Costa Rica well, especially tropical animals -- hummingbirds, frogs, butterflies, insects. Our members are intelligent and many are experts in their respective fields, so accuracy is key. (i.e. don't include an image of of a bird found in Nicaragua). Must haves: Our logo, the word "Amigo" (PLEASE ONLY USE the ENGLISH LOGO)

Tips -- avoid pictures from the BioCursos program on the Flickr account. (These are excursions outside of our stations) 

Design colors: Our official HEX colors are #7bc143, #fdbb30, #f26631 -- You do not have to use these colors, I'm only providing this as a matter of reference. Our logo can be changed to one color. The final design must be for the front of a t-shirt only and a limit of 3 colors. (The IRS regulates how much we can spend per t-shirt so we need to keep the printing costs down.) t-shirt color: The color of the t-shirt is black. We will print on Gilden 100% Ultra Cotton Tees. We will select 3 designs to be promoted to our audience through our monthly e-newsletter, scheduled to be sent on May 16. Our members will have the final say! For your protection and copyright issues, the images will remain on the DesignContest server and DC will provide us with the direct URLs to the images for insertion into our online newsletter. Our final decision will be made by May 31.

  • Are you able to show this design without the arch from the frogs hopping? We prefer this one with the single color with Amigo vs the three different on your other design. #30

  • The concept - a series of three similar images sloth t-shirt - at first glance identical. The movement of sloth images can bring excitement and a positive mood. And also make group photos of three or more people more fun. #27
