Great job! The slogan is great and this totally captures the spirit of those old class room posters from the 70's.

It took me a moment to realize that this was talking about twitter! And given my dislike for twitter, I love this shirt! I love the style and color scheme too.

Nice user name hehe. I thought it was kind of funny using a modern reference with a vintage style. Thanks SquirrelsAreMean!

LOL, I love this Jasneko! I have always loathed Twitter and was reluctant to ever use it until recently ^^;. Seeing people blurt out things online that ruin their careers, personal lives, etc...dude...tweets ARE for the birds! I would so buy this. Great job on the text and art style.

Yes, the twitter backlash is here! Now my reluctance to jump on that bandwagon shows savour-faire. Next, mobile phones! And deodorant. (Okay not that last one.)

Very sweet design jasneko. ^__^

Heh.... well, I've found it quite amusing how the word tweet now has such a different interpretation than its original one! Thanks Spiritgreen!

Heh I don't really have very strong opinions myself, but I find the use of a cute bird word like 'tweet' kind of amusing! Thanks imsochady
PS. In case you missed it, your unicorn design was leading the hotness for quite a while this afternoon - congrats!

I love this!! I'm not a big fan of twitter, and I absolutely love the color in this shirt (the white letters on the green look amazing!) I hope this gets printed too, I'd definitely buy! This is my favorite design in this derby

Yea! I saw that for a bit. But everyone seems like they brought their A game for this derby. So cracking top 10 will be hard, let alone top 20! But I shall try again next time!

I really like the white on olive too, I was originally thinking about a different colored letter but once I tried white there was no question! Very happy to be your favorite design of the derby!

In the fog!!! So glad people are liking it!
Edit: I almost forgot to mention... earlier today there was MASSIVE tweeting going on... there were hundreds of birds in the tallest trees outside my windows making a ton of noise. Every once in a while that happens... maybe some kind of a noisy migratory trip? I'd like to think they were telling me they were in the fog;)

Sweet! I hoped it would also appeal visually to those who don't care one way or another about twitter. (I don't have strong feelings myself really, just thought it was a funny idea!) Thanks almostrelly!

Yes!!! Very cool! Hope it can keep climbing in there. Thanks bass!

Re: Tweets are for Birds


I can appreciate the joke, but it seems the core of the design is based around the giant block font letters you used on it. I see the little birds there, but it honestly seems like you put them into the design because you had to. Also like many designs in this derby, besides the distressing, and the use of a font that looks like it's from 1950, I don't see how this fits the vintage theme.

Not that I'm sure you'll miss my measly one vote, but I'm sorry that i can't give you one for this. Not one so many other artists went above and beyond this round with original artwork, ideas, and a genuine execution of the "vintage" aesthetic.

Best of luck regardless!

Re: Tweets are for Birds

@Horseypants
I can totally understand some of your points, especially about the design being mostly text... if you look at my signature, I have 3 other designs that have little to none. This one just happens to be the one that wooters seem to be voting for the most.

On the other hand, I'm not sure about your birds point...if you look at my past designs, I love creating designs based around birds, and I rarely use much text or large text even when text is permitted. I myself usually prefer less text-based designs - I went a different route here with the big text/little birds because I was thinking of old posters/record albums I've seen. Also, I drew the letters myself thinking of the way the old lettering looked back then.

To further my thought process... I chose the olive color because it has a vintage feel to me - probably because when I was a kid, the appliances in my house (fridge/oven/stove) were a strange dated olive green color that apparently was a popular color for a while back in the day.

Anyway, no problem about not giving a vote this time if you prefer other designs, (though I hope you can see more that there was a thought process behind the design). Maybe another time!

I like this.
Normally I won't wear text shirts, but it pokes fun at Twitter, has music notes, and is dark green. Very nice!

Awesome, it's cool that this would appeal to someone who normally won't wear text shirts. It has the magical ingredients for you! Thanks Salinga!
