Project description

We're looking for a design for a Welcome Home shirt for the families of returning US troops. This doesn't need to be specific to the troops returning from Iraq and we'd prefer it be more universal so as to include all US troops returning from where ever they may be serving. The color scheme doesn't necessarily have to contain red, white and blue, but no more than five colors in total. The classic shirt with the American flag and the words Welcome Home underneath, although effective, we find to be rather bland and boring. We'd like something more hip and modern. A shirt that people will want to wear at any time because it looks cool and not just to a welcome home gathering.

  • @CONTESTHOLDER, did some variations on this one tuned down the colors notice : the design is bit big compare to shirt : did this on purpose : so you can see better! designKB
  • Hello ACD, The helmet design is a full vector idea of mine. The image leaves space for your imagination (but i've choosen one that "inspires" freedom/peace). The 3 small stars could be easily placed on the sleeves. I belive its not just a gathering t-shirt :) Thankyou, Hoffa.
  • Dear ACD, First of all, thank you for your feedback. You are right, it defenitely looks like "us". Here are the changes #19 and #20. Regards.
  • I changed the font to more a military type font. And then I took off the 2011 and changed the colors to more of the traditional RWB colors. I had to put the shirt on a light grey color shirt since the background of the shirt is white it wouldn't really show up that well. Hope you like and if you need anything changed just let me know. Thanks, Squewheet

    The ratings that have been given out to this point is only one judges opinion. However, the feedback is a collection of many of the judges involved in this process. Thank you to everyone who has submitted designs thus far.

    We're only rating this low because it was on the wrong color shirt.
  • ACD
    Please put this on a white shirt. We'd like to see periods after the U and the S because we feel it looks too much like us Troops instead of U.S. Troops. We'd also like to see "There Is" changed to "There's" since the line comes from the Wizard of Oz and that's the way Dorothy said it.

    This is only rated low because we want to see the design on a white shirt.

    We want the design to be inclusive of all branches of the military, not specific to the army. The other design you submited had a better layout and color scheme even without the camo pattern. Sorry, I should have posted that on the other design.
  • ACD
    This design has been well recieved, but it looks like you've gone over the 5 color limit. We're also curious where the lightning bolt symbol comes from? Is it an original design or is it a known symbol? We don't recognize it.
  • ACD
    Too many colors were used in this design. Please limit to 5 colors.
  • ACD
    We would like to see the 2011 removed. The worn look is good, but it's a little too worn. We'd also like to see that if you use red and blue, that you use the traditional red and blue of the flag instead of the brick red and light blue.
  • ACD
    Thank you for the revision!
  • Dear Contest Holder My vision of T-shirt for families #8 its little different but original so i hope u like it!
  • Dear Contest Holder, this is my revision of #2 Thanks!
  • ACD
    I don't really care for the font that was used. I do like the coloring concept of the stars. I think it's really cool the way that fades, but the colors seem really light.
  • ACD
    The shirts are going to be white, so the white letters and white stars really won't work.
