Design #14: Nutrition

Once you've finished gorging your guts on glutinous goo for Halloween, why not take a turn for the healthier? This week we're thinking about nutrition. Show us a design that examines the relationship between food and health, captures some striking nutrition-related visual image, metaphorically explores the idea of nourishment and fuel, or at least includes some cute cartoon fruit characters. Oh, yeah: designs involving booze, dope, or porn will be rejected. So don't bother working up a "Beer Is Good For You" or "Boobies Are Delicious" t-shirt. We're not in that business.

A Note on Color: we've created new shirt templates that better reflect the actual colors of our shirts. Our crack team of Pantone swatch specialists lovingly crafted them with more accurate colors. (The Heather Gray template still isn't heathered, though. We're working on it.) You can find them on the submission page, or here: Photoshop template, Illustrator template, PDF template.

And if you're really uptight about colors, make sure you choose your ink colors from the Pantone Solid Coated colors, available in the Swatches palette in both Photoshop and Illustrator. Otherwise we have to try to match your colors (of which there are millions of possiblities) to our Pantone Solid Coated colors (of which there are 1,114). If you don't use Pantone Solid Coated colors, you're not allowed to whine about how the colors look later.

Oh, and there's the obligatory geeky Apple reference!

Fun times!

p.s. in case it wasn't obvious, I'm not an apple fan

queue the nutritional fact labels with something semi-clever thrown in.

It's becoming quite obvious to me that Wooters are just too geeky for me. Derby #13 produced yet again NO shirts I would buy. All the ones I would have bought were ones that were a little further down in voting and had NO video game references.

Shouldn't have gone in expecting much, I mean it is a derby aimed at once a year type shirts and it is a bit too late to be ordering them.

That means you should be buying those losing shirts directly from the artists after the 60 days are up. BestLosers.com has those cataloged for you...

And on today's Pensketch shirt (which I am very upset I wasn't home to buy), Woot is making it very clear that they are NOT making concessions to make sure we get the shirts in time for Halloween...we have to shell out the extra $5 for shipping. They should have had the Halloween Derby LAST week.

Not true...just pay the extra $5 you'll have it on time.

I really appreciate what you are doing with BestLosers but I am on a fixed income and won't spend (est.) $20 (with tax and shipping) for tshirts although there are some I would really like to have. Just can't afford to with all the ones I like. And most won't pursue it.

Can't argue with that unfortunately. Probably closer to $15 out the door if they're using GoodStorm but can't compete with Woot.

Yay! And I just now got my other two shirts, so I can send them off to my friend in Japan. X3 Awesome~

Gah, I think we'll be seeing lots of couch potatoes and other anthropomorphic vegetables this derby. Lots of 'you are what you eat' themes.

I've got no good ideas yet.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH........ whatever.

But what quality tee does Goodstorm use? Are they American Apparel shirts?

Although, if they'd had the derby last week there's still a good chance that people would have had to shell out the extra $5 to be sure to get it by Halloween. It would really suck to gamble on SmartPost and have your shirt arrive a day or two late.

I'm sorry you missed getting my shirt, and was actually shocked as hell when I woke up and my girlfriend told me it had sold out. I was convinced it would sell under 500.
