Derby #433: Southwest States

by wootbot

Yee Haw! This week you'll be designing a tee for one (or more) of the Southwest states. Since all things are relative, let's say for the purpose of this Derby that they are:

Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.

We're hoping to get at LEAST one tee for every state. Ideally several. Here are a few rules:

  • You can design a tee for the state or a city within that state.
  • The design doesn't necessarily have to include the outline of the state.
  • Be mindful that some well-known landmarks are privately owned (the Space Needle, the Chrysler Building, etc.) and may be rejection fodder. 
  • Don't use the state's actual slogans.
  • No Creme tees. 

The top three vote-getters will get $200 and will appear alongside a selection of honorable mention prints on 4/27. They will also likely be featured around a particularly patriotic event this summer ... 

Bonus Preview: Derby #432: Dinosaurs. No creme tees. Launches on Monday, April 20th. The top three vote-getters receive $1000 and are printed the weekend of 4/24-4/26, with honorable mentions running in the 4/27 honorable mention plus sale.

Derby #432: Non-Electronic Games

by wootbot

Derby #432: Non-electronic Games. There was a time when we rolled dice, drew cards, spelled words and took over the world - without that warm glow of phosphorus, LEDs or plasma.

  • Don't discount a game just because it has a battery.
  • The design doesn't require showing the game board or pieces.
  • Be mindful of brand logos - they can be rejection fodder.
  • No Creme tees. 

The top 3 vote-getters receive $1000 and are printed the weekend of 4/17-4/19, with some designs running in the 4/20 honorable mention plus sale. 

Bonus Preview: Derby #433: Southwest States. Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.  No creme tees. Launches on Thursday, April 16th
