Greenbackers

I really liked using this design contest. Some great creative ideas came out and overall, the final design exceeded my expectations. I did the guaranteed money. In hindsight, I wish I had done a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place so some of the guys who didn't win got paid for their work. I did the invitation to vote with 6-7 designs and all of them had roughly equal votes but one ran away with it - the winner.

$375 paid

62 custom designs

DESIGN Needs:
We are looking for a cool design to go into a forest green t-shirt for our tailgate group that will be worn by men, women and children.  The Greenbackers is our tailgate group name.  Our group sets up tailgate tents, cooks food and hangs out outside the stadium before the game.

The shirt should create a unique brand that identifies our group and incorporates some aspect that would identify us as as Pi Kappa Phi Alumni as well as diehard UAB Football supporters.
