Typically, I'd say yes, but I'd like to see how it would look on the actual bag. Plus, I've learned not to assume when it comes to woot.

Can anyone post a pic of the existing Woot bag?

This is entirely possible which might be why they didn't provide a bag blank for the comp because designers should be putting it on a shirt.

Come on now. You've bought at least one shirt (maybe). Shouldn't you have seen it?

On woot or ramy? They've both worked very hard to create their reputations so why dance around the issue?

I'm actually working on a couple ideas with my collaborator... This will be a first entry from either of us.

Munchy Attack If you can find the name of this artist & real song title I'll buy you a daily woot shirt (your choice what day)

Dystopia Dark Lager, Where the Wild Parties at?, B.A. Bearacus, and many more wanted in XXL(PLEASE!!!)

Is text kosher or not? I'm gonna assume not.

This seems fun, picking the colors for me means one less thing I could screw up.

ahem, er, uh, well, yeah, sure, but I um, rather it was a gif~t, yeah, that's it, and um, it was already out of the bag when it was given to me, yeah, that it... sure.
Do you think they bought it...
Shut up, they can still see what you're typing.

Frankly, I'm with Adder's POV on this. If you notice, Ramy and Seki don't tend to get HM's with whatever they create that doesn't make it. I'd rather see something incredibly creative get the $1k. I mean, what do you people care? By the same rule as people who defend shiny desu: "It's just a bag. It'll be thrown out."


*note 'don't tend to'. I know a couple of them have received HM's but as a general rule, they aren't the art directors' favorites by a long shot.

Hahaha, this is hilarious. I have a couple of their bags on my desk, and every time I see it I say, "They could use a new design for that bag." And here we are!

I assume the bag will not be printed on their screenprinting presses. So, that means we could do TRUE gradients, right?

I don't mean to sound trite or sycophantic; but I tend to align my thinking with adder and Jaden more times than not. It's just I haven't been around long enough to really notice the trends, but their not really the types to spit out accusation without evidence.
I think talent and cleverness of concept should be weighed equally. However, if one is in the negative it should pull down the other.
HM are tricky because they are just personal favs, whether it is due to like the people, the design, or whatever, it is still totally their call without question. It's like picking your team in gym class. Even if your best friend leaps into the vacuum, you still have to pick them.

They said general derby rules apply so no, if we were to go by those rules

though you bring up a good point that's worth their attention

Nice. Looks like I've got one of my own in for a second chance at votes.



I'm excited to see all the Honorable Mentions in this derby posted together and ready for a re-vote.

Now to think about that bag...

My return to the derby is going to be a super-special bag design contest for which I already have an idea and a "sketch" of sorts? Oh man! This should be fun. :D






Also, glad to see the forums haven't changed a bit in the last few months during my extended absence. ;)

I haven't bought a shirt from Woot, but I've had them gifted to me twice.
Can someone post pictures of what the current/previous bags have looked like? =)

"Shiny desu" means "shiny cute". "Desu" is "cute" in Japanese, sometimes in an insulting manner (at least in this case), and whoever said that was mocking ramy's uber "desu" designs.

I measured the design area of the actual bag including the words "shirt.woot!" and it's the same size as the template they gave us. Unless of course they'll be using a bigger bag which already has the "shirt.woot!" on it.

Hey everyone, I hope this is helpful to you. I made a blank comp psd from a woot bag that I hadn't thrown out yet. It's complete with shading and a rough print area. Here's a screenshot of the comp:



And here's a link to the zipped psd.

Here's my list of HM entries. I think I have the list right... It's longer than I expected. (yeah, yeah, I know. she is reported to have said that)

My favorites are "Roasted Snacks" and "Absent Friends" - 2 of my favs ever, in fact. So look for them and vote if you like too.

I took Japanese in college because my friend said it was easy (not!) and remembered being asked, "Onamae wa nan desu ka?" And I answered, "Onamae wa Chad desu." Hahaha,

This was one of my absolute favorites from that derby and it was really disappointed it couldn't make the final push. Hopefully it does well this time around.

It just says, "What is your name?" And I answered, "My name is Chad." But I don't think "desu" means cute in those sentences .
