Winning design #47 by LyndseyHall, T-shirt Design for Wounded Nature - Working Veterans Contest
Gold Medal

designed by LyndseyHall

Project description

We want an image along with the words: I Love TRASHY MEN There are several designs that are cute, entertaining and come close to what we are looking for, but nothing that really has a big WOW factor. We want to try turning the tables and trying another week where we everyone to show a woman who likes a man who participates in coastal cleanups. This may be easier for a couple of the artists. Men are the biggest generators of litter and the image can have a dual meaning for women. I have no preconceived notions of what the image should look like. Fun, eye catching, easy to read is my basic criteria. Visit our web site www.woundednature.org to better understand who we are and our message. If possible, please include our logo - can be small and out of the way or included as part of the graphic.

Comments

  • Wasn't completely sure on what you wanted, if you would like to reply and give me any suggestions, that'd be great! And I'm sure alot of us designers would appreciate it if you shortened the end date to Tuesday or Wednesday so that we can get the reward money before the weekly deadline. Thanks for the opportunity and your time for letting designcontest.com reach designers!
    • I posted #1 and went with kind of a square template.

    • We would like to see some sort of image to go with the text. In my mind there is nothing unique, fun or appealing about this submital.

    • Any suggestions on what I should do instead? Colors, shapes, etc.

    • Turn the message into an image a woman would wear. If I had the answer on how to do it, I would not be hear. Ask some women how they would show that message.

    • Tell me if you like this idea: A man with a suit standing inside of a trash can, then the words beneath it.

    • I can not say - I will run the finished submissions past some women to see which one they favor. I suggest you do the same. Cute and/or funny will probably do better than anything serious. The best answer I can give you without seeing your drawing is that I am not saying "no way" like I did with the block text submission.

    • I did check with 5 women and they all said if it is striking, they would buy a man in a trash can. All 5 said that could work if done right.

    • I feel this is our job to make the CH's wishes come to life.. Experiment, explore and create!

    • dear rudy : i need your kind feedback to proceed my thinking to the better solution , #22

  • The octopus is cute and very striking. The only thing I wonder is if it is too juvenile in appearance and the women would give it to a young child rather than wear it themselves? But it is eye catching.
  • #8 our logo is as big as the message and is a distraction. Not sure if the fish is cute or looks like something fat and grumpy. I am not trying to be overly critical and wish I had the talent that is displayed on this page. However, I do want something that women will buy.
  • Hi Rudy,Could you please rate my design as well provide feedback of the designs #6 & 7 ? Thanks
    • 7 looks better than 6

    • Thanks for feedback.please rate the designs,it will help me to submit more designs.

    • 7 is informative but does not have that WOW cute or funny factor

    • The feedback is my rating

  • Hi,One more question,Can I use stock images ? If Yes,then you have to purchase them from Shutter stock with a little cost.
    • NO on the stock images. In the past I have used a stock image where I paid and it actually belonged to someone other than the person selling it.

  • The bottom shark looks better drawn than the top one. However, I do not think this is the cute, funny t-shirt a woman would want to wear.
  • A couple of observations - Say no "more" trashy men implys that the woman has been with trashy men and is now giving them up. I do not believe most women want to say that. - In crossing out the word NO by running a line through it sort of implies that the word NO does not apply. It then leaves the meaning that trashy men are OK. I am showing these designs to women to get their feedback as they are entered. Sometimes it takes me a while to get feedback. Rudy
    • Sorry. I accidentally included "more". If my design is good, I will modify it and maybe come up with more similar designs.

  • Hello, I can cross the word man if you want, any change let me know. Kind regards DCC
  • Hello, please could you confirm the statement you would like on the design for me as within the brief it states "I love trashy men" and the current entries have used "No trashy men for me". Thank you in advance, Lyndsey.

  • Entry #25 I like this design - it is fun, colorful, a woman would wear it and gets the message across.
    • About #25 Hi rudy1, I am glad you like the design. I tried to stick with colors that would work with your logo. And I also used the waves and the sun from your logo. If you would like to see any other changes don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, Squewheet

  • I like this design - it is fun, colorful, a woman would wear it and gets the message across.
  • The colors should not clash with our logo. The whale and the octopus look cute but look like they are geared more towards young children than women. A few have the words wrong. What I would like to see appear is the words "I Love Trashy Men" Cute, colorful, easy to read, and fun are what I am looking for. I do not want any designers to obtain tunnel vision and start focusing on someone else's work instead of their own creativity.
  • http://www.designcontest.com/t-shirt-design/wounded-nature-working-veterans/entry/11/ Only one design per canvas is allowed, you can change colors or position of icon/text, but you can't submit different font or icon style on single canvas. Watermark is also forbidden!!
  • About #27 Hello, this is my entry. My aim was to bring together your logo and the statement. Your feedback would be kindly appreciated! Lyndsey
    • Hi Lyndsey, I like the design. I tried finding you on Facebook along with several other designers without success.

      |--| I think the rules of the site are not to communicate outside of here.. If you have feedback I am happy for you to discuss within the comments :)

    • I did not know that - I did provide my comments.

  • I see that all a sudden everyone is doing a variation of Lyndsey's logo inclusive design. For number #31, it is hard to understand the message. It is busy and difficult to read and understand when glanced at or seen for the first time.
    • Thanks for the feedback. Is it a negative or positive that people are including the logo more? Would you prefer a beachier feeling or a more love-focused feeling? Or more eco-friendly (as with some of the animal motifs)?

    • There is no good answer to your question. As long as the web site's url is there or the logo appears somewhere on the shirt I am happy. I like beachy, Love, and eco if done well. Easy to read and understand is important. I am a guy and what I do is ask several women every couple of days which one is their favorite and what they like and don't like. There opinions vary as do preferences but several stand out. What I do not want to do is point everyone in one direction because then it will limit the diversity of possibilities. I think any of the emotions can deliver this message.

      |--| Thank you for pointing this out. Is there anything I can do to push my design for you? Lyndsey

    • Lyndsey I am very hesitant to post any specific comments in the general forum as it seems this causes everyone to steer in the same direction.

  • I'd love your thoughts on #33, CH. I'm thinking of a striking design but also something a woman would wear.
  • Hello CH, I would love to hear your thoughts on #31. The humour is a little more adult but I think still fun and colourful. The logo can be more thoroughly integrated if you want, but the composition is still evocative of your logo and you can place your logo anywhere easily. Thanks for the opportunity and good luck!
  • Hello Rudy, I was just curious to know if there was a color/location limitation for this project. Will you be silk screening this design or will it be done in some other format (direct-to-garment print, heat transfer, dye sublimation, etc.)? I should have asked this before submission, but I'd still like to know. The logo inclusive design was inevitable as the waves and sun make a great backdrop to the art as is a good example in #25. I'm sure any of the artists can add/remove this feature as you see fit.
    • What I will do is take the design we like best to a t-shirt company and ask them what the printing options are and their recommendations.
