Calling all designers! we've just kicked off a contest to design this year's BarCampMilwaukee3 t-shirt! Submit your design and get recognition and 2 free shirts shipped directly to you.
Must have the BarCampMilwaukee3 logo on the front and back, and the logo should be readable (i.e. No ultra-tiny logos to simply meet the specs). Here is the logo for your reference:
Download the EPS outlined logos in color and B&W, zipped (389k) compatible with Adobe Illustrator:
The t-shirt will be dark gray or black.
Two colors max, with one color being white. The second color will print on top of the white on a dark shirt. Using only white in the design is OK.
Design space is 12" x 12" max (no wraparounds, etc.) front and back.
The design should capture the idea of sharing, learning, community, equality, technology — along those lines.
The back must include sponsor names as listed on the site at http://barcampmilwaukee.com/sponsors. A list will probably work the best, but hey, if you have a crazy cool idea, just make sure all sponsors are listed and are treated equally on the back design (i.e. Don't make some sponsor names huge and others tiny — all sponsors are equal partners).
Here's a sample of the BarcampMilwaukee2 sponsor area on the back of the shirt from last year:
Do not use copyrighted images in your design.
