Okay...this one might be harder than I first thought. I have a couple of ideas, but I'll need to see if I can get the design to fuse with my thoughts. See you tomorrow with my designs. Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.

Here's my first draft, titled Smart Food. The idea is that the apple is a smarter nutritional choice than those guys in the background.



I'd love some feedback!

That's a really cute idea. Love the ice cream cone. If the dominant voter population is older geek though... I don't know how well the speed of light equation is going to go over. The equation is actually pretty easy to comprehend for just about anyone. I think maybe a calculus equation would look "smarter".

Great idea. The one thing that struck me as odd is that the fries and ice cream are 3D, and the apple isn't.

I think it's cute how it is, however if you're going to go for a more complex equation as fablefire suggested, I would humbly (and geekily) suggest the simpler versions of the Hodgkin-Huxley formulation, Nernst equation, or Goldman-Hodgkin-Katz voltage equation for a tie in to "brain food".

Smart food...very clever. I like it. I second that the apple looks sort of weird because it doesn't have shading, but for what you can do with six colors, it's not bad at all.

Cute idea! Love the ice cream cone. Looks like a decapitated clown...but I like it! :o) The only thing that stands out odd to me is that the fries don't seem to cast a shadow as compared to the other two characters.

I think the repositioning of the apple makes it look like the building has a little more depth. I'm afraid to change too much because then the apple might look bad.



Ya, fix the shadows so that the light is coming from the building, and maybe get rid of the flaming man, and it's good to go!

"Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired."

Derby's in the Money: We're Gonna Start Paying More!
Derby and commissioned alike, designers whose shirts sell from zero to 500 units on their first day will receive $250, while designs that sell 501 units or more will net their creators a $500 payoff. (Just so you know, we've never had a Derby-winning shirt sell less than 501 units.) The payment for shirts sold after the first day will remain unchanged at $2 per shirt.

I don't design 'em, I just buy 'em.

I played around with the shadows a bit, and I think I'm going to leave it as it is. When the light comes from the building, the shadow from the apple blends too much with the shadow from the gas can.

I also removed the flaming guy from the final. It looked weird, I agree.

I would like to post an alternate shirt template that I made specifically for those who want to screw around with one that was made from a real bona fide woot shirt.

And guess what, you can get it right here!

So if you get sick of the nice looking cartoony one from woot or the realistic one from Jack, take a look at mine.
The file is huge, and I'm sorry for that.
But nonetheless, design on and take a look at my amateur template!


edit: Just so you know, there are no girl shirts in this one.

Thank you! I'ma download it now.

I have nothing for this derby yet, and I won't be home all weekend. I have a feeling I'm not even going to try, especially given my poor track record of guessing what people want.

"Balanced Robot Diet"



Get rid of the shadow, it looks like frozen banana stick. The robot looks amazing, I love the art style, it looks just fine by it self with no shadow. I hope you win I love it. Possibly center the robot after that too. The cannibal one looks bad. The people drawn just look bad, you would need to redrawn them if you wanted to make it look better. Plus make it smaller. The cannibals and clown one looks like it was drawn in paint.

edit you might want to move up it's left eye slightly keep it crooked but just a little bit higher on the left one.

If anyone has any suggestions of things I should add (or take away) please do share. I'm at somewhat of a mental block right now because I've been studying for a Calc final in between this and the woot off.



I personally like the original draft MUCH better than the revision. The oustretched thumbs up in the revision makes the apple look kinda evil, and the original just makes me smile and laugh more because he just looks so happy go lucky. The gas can on the revision looks too detailed for the rest of the picture.

I think if you took th original and switched the apple's shadow to his front, moved the match to just inside his body (and added some red to the match flame), and moved the apple as a whole to just barely overlap the hospital's shadow (to add depth), it would be PERFECT!

I like this one -- get rid of the shadow, center the robot, and make t he robot look a little more robot-y... maybe some dials or what have you.

Tomorrow is going to be a crazy day so I got my first of maybe 2 designs created for the most part. Feedback is welcome. I'm debating whether or not to keep the text. I think removing it might appease a lot of the voters out there, but without the words I feel like the "idea" isn't as digestible (pun intended).

Edit: Advice on image size is would also be much appreciated. I'm thinking it might work better if I go a bit smaller.

I like the concept. Have you considered making it horizontal? Or at least the text? The text doesnt look right to me. I like the size as is.

Agreed, I would like to see how it would look horizontal as well. The size seems ok, but I'm not so sure about the placement. I think you should keep the text whatever you do. This is a great idea. I know someone who would LOVE this shirt.

It needs the text. I'd try it with the font being horizontal, and forming a right angle with the cheese-meter (so text meets the top of the meter - either right or left side).

Cool idea. Reminds me of that old Tom and Jerry game for the S uper Nintendo. Jerry had a cheese-o-meter for life. =D

single color is fine, but it is still too big, and pointless. People hate orange shirts, and it's just a carrot...
It has to be 16''x20'' or smaller

I wouldn't have a shadow on one and none on others. Try having shadows that actually resemble what the silhouettes would look like, instead of just circles. To emphasize the intimidating factor of the milk, I would have their shadows being cast toward the french fry, and then have the fry shadow follow in suit, south on the shirt. Not too long though.

Also... hmm... personally, I would also put some kind of cow head or something similar on the milk cartons... or even just "Milk".
