Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Honestly I've been put off by the selection lately. I love the simpler artistic stuff.

Stuff like that.
I just can't find anything like that anywhere else, but nobody around here wants anything but the silly cliche crap apparently. It's a shame. I'm glad The Raven is still around though.

I realize I'm biased with some of my recent offerings, but Woot rarely prints a pure "text only" shirt, where someone just put a slogan on a shirt without regard to anything but the words.

Graphic design is just as much art as illustration. Typography, placement, color are all important considerations--often more important than the words themselves.

I like a good text only or mostly text shirt.

I'm a sucker for a good text shirt. I agree with Kevin, graphic design and typography are definitely an art form. Sometimes I spend more time selecting the perfect typeface and tweaking it just right than anything else.
