Re: Hero


I see you changed it from the trademarked "O". hopefully this one gets to stay.

Ooh, it really is different! I wasn't able to tell from the design detail. Chances are that, if it prints, people will take it for the Heroes logo at a distance. Purpose served and nothing infringed. Well done!

Really...

What's the point in having a shirt "in the running" if it's a poor copy of a trademarked logo? This will get removed also.

Come up with something original... Even if it wasn't trademarked, this shirt wouldn't have a chance... The background and everything about the shirt screams "TV Show" and does not stay on the topic of the derby.

I was just wondering what "original" shirt was yours?

Like the idea, watching my wife raise two kids puts her as a hero with superpowers in my book.

This shirt has everything to do with the topic. And as far as being original, many shirts in the derby are based on or inspired by something. A shirt based on a video game won the derby before last, why not a TV show?

wow... sorry if you don't think it's original, but I thought it was fairly clever. It's supposed to be similar to the TV show logo, that's the whole point. It's a parody of the show. I used the well known logo, but changed it up a bit, so that people would get the reference. I'm not saying it won't get rejected again, but at least people who like mine can vote for it. I have just as much right as anyone else to put a shirt design on the site. If you don't like it, fine; I respect your opinion, but you don't have to attack me like that.

I think this shirt is the epitome of the theme. Sundbe11 took a TV design, parodied it, and is giving mom's the respect they deserve. Everyone know Mothers are all hero's, they deserve their due, and this shirt tries to do it.

I'd also like to see some of your original shirt designs please.

Great reply, sundbe11. Your design is very clever. It is a creative, but different, reference to the show. I love it! Keep up the imaginative work!
