Re: Shawshank University


I really like this idea. There are just a few elements that either I would've changed the placement or omitted - having university and college is particularly irksome (and redundant). Did you try having Shawshank where it presently is and then University or College where Geology is? Then, the smaller text (where University and College are now) could be Department of Geology. That might be a bit more cohesive. And just look more like other college/department shirts. Again, I truly do like this idea and feel like it has the potential to be really amazing.

ETA: Perhaps cutting out New England too...just having Maine may be enough.

Hi, I actually second on the suggestions given. With those changes it will really be an awesome t-shirt.

I second all of this... well, I guess I third it. If those changes were made, I would absolutely buy this shirt.

Maybe you are right on the university/college being redundant (college should be 'department'), but to put geology in small caps doesn't make any good to the design.

It was just a suggestion, I'm sorry if it bothered you. As previously stated, I do like the concept, I just thought those few points might be worth exploring.

Ultimately it is your design and your choice, so again, I am sorry if my suggestions bothered you.

Good luck.

I do agree with keeping "geology" in large print, and changing "college" to "Dept. of" and maybe also dropping "new england" as previously suggested. With those few changes, I would buy this shirt in a heartbeat! I love the concept!!!
