Derby Contest #696: Slogan Tees!

by wootbot

Derby Contest #696: Slogan Tees!

No, not slogantees (the oft forgot about cousin to the manatee), we mean slogans ON tees. It’s been a while so we thought it was time to refresh your kerning and adjust your type, this derby is TEXT ONLY! We don’t want just any old Windows 95 font though…we want hand lettering, computer drawn typography or if you have to use an existing font it MUST be manipulated to not look like the original. The challenge is to make it impossible for our font nerds to name yours…if I spy a Helvetica…there’ll be rejection to pay. The theme is open, designs must be in the form of a slogan, so vote for the slogan and font that resonates with you! Go vote, vote, vote!

The Derby ends each THURSDAY at noon, CST. The three designs that receive the most votes will be featured as the Daily offers Friday - Sunday. Great designs that don't win may be included in an Editor's Choice sale each Monday, so be sure to check back and see who makes the cut!
