One word. That's all we wanted. No fancy fonts, no slogans, just one word using art to spell it out. We had a ton of submissions, but only a few would make the HM list this week. Here they are:

 

we're not unreasonable

by ApeLad

Okay, but what do I get in return?

 

Ninja

by patrickspens

FALSE. The ninja cannot be seen at all.

 

LOL

by cuzwhynot

We encourage you to wear this to make you more easily avoidable in public.

 

Seed of Hope

by ochopika

Hope: it's deep underground, in a tangled and difficult-to-extricate bundle.

 

Steampunk

by benjaminleebates

Needs more goggles on tophats.

 

COLLABORATE

by revolvingdoor

This is going on a bumpersticker somewhere.

 

X-Ray

by ziegenhorn

I see what you ate there.

 

Inconceivable (V2)

by lucky1988

Death, Sicilian, etc.

 

Fossil

by DianaSprinkle

Yes, we get it, DianaSprinkle, we're all looking at your bone. Stop giggling.

 

I love science

by radiomode

Science is a cruel mistress, all calculating and logical and unflinchingly honest.

 

 

That's all for our One Word HMs! Stay tuned for our next Double-Take Derby, when you'll see them again. Until then, check out the haps in our current Derby!

Great choices! Congrats to all the HM's.

Now, Woot, if you ever offer Steampunk on a TOTE, say in one of these weekly "hey we didn't print it before, but we're printing it now" kind of things, I will buy several. Many, many steampunk fans need these to carry books.

Oh, and a Seed of Hope tote would be nice for gardening stuff!

Very happy to see Steampunk and Fossil!

Very sad that "LIFE" din't make it- the thought that it actually included the timeline of evolution made it especially clever

I agree. I thought it was very well thought out.

Yay, Colloborate! I hope RevolvingDoor will continue with new line-ups.

These are all great picks. I'm especially happy for lucky this week because his nearly made it even with the resub.

(Thanks for remembering my fallout design, roysterer)

I'm sad for Wirdou's "LIFE" too. Lots of work, a great concept, very wearable. I'm sure it'll find a place somewhere. :^)

Huh? It's possible to HM a rejected design?
Hmmm....

Really happy to see Fossil, I was a big fan of that one. Also good to see Collaborate and Inconveivable. Looking forward to maybe buying these later.

This was a really strong field of wearable designs. Thanks for recognising COLLABORATE.

Yes, they have done it before. Rules are only for derby, HMs have none

Steampunk rocks! Nice work. I want coffee mugs, totes, shower curtains, etc. Lol....
Such a steamy design....

Nice to see fossil.

Also very sad not to see Life even make the HM list.

The embedded timeline was super clever - would buy in a second. Hope it makes it to print some time.

Very strong field. I would buy so many of them.

I just had to chime in and agree the it's really disappointing to not see an HM for "LIFE". One of my favorite designs I've seen on woot.
