Re: Calculator Fun


Kids love spelling words with calculators, so this is my take on that idea.

Oh, hey there! It seems like you may have missed seeing the derby description and rules?

I'm just looking for a bit of advice on this rejection. How is this off-topic? I can easily see a kid showing off the words he figured out how to "write" with a calculator. This is real-world realistic, and is age-appropriate, meaning this really is something kids in middle school can/would do.

As for color, I'm totally confused on this issue. Your entry form says that brown equates to Pantone 7519, which is what I used for my entry. However, I totally agree that it does not match up with the color swatch provided in the blank shirt template. When I do the eyedropper to the brown swatch, it comes up as Black 2C (which looks like the brown in the swatch). Is is possible that the pantone # found on the entry page is incorrect? (I am referring to the "What's this?" link found next to the design detail entry.)

Thank you for your input and guidance.

I can't speak to the coloring issues...but spelling on a calculator, while age appropriate, is hardly a science experiment. Just sayin'...

While not specifically mentioned by anyone else who has replied (though I suspect it's what goldenthorn was alluding to by linking to the rules), this clearly violates the "incidental text only" rule for this derby. Does your design make sense without text? No? Then it's not incidental.
