I need you designers and artists out there to help me design an It’s Okay To Be Smart t-shirt.
See that “scientist scientist scientist" shirt I am wearing in my photo over there? About 70 gajillion people have asked me where they can get one. At the same time, it occurs to me that we don’t have any official gear for IOTBS.
Why not kill two birds with one stone?
Here’s where you come in. See, the original shirt is from the band We Are Scientists (who are great), and they are very hard to get, if not impossible. But I love that shirt, and you guys seem to as well.
Think you can design a new shirt based on the old one? The only rules are that it must keep something resembling the 3X SCIENTIST theme, it must look good on a black background, and it must include “It’s Okay To Be Smart” somewhere on it. The rest … the wonderful, sciencey, curiosity-inducing goodness … that’s up to you and your creative juices.
Submit your creations to itsokaytobesmart at gmail dot com by August 14th!! The winner will get my undying admiration, well-publicized credit for their fine work, and a special reward that you can probably take to a bank. Best of all, the winning shirt will be available for sale after the winner is announced.
Submissions should be in vector or PDF format and be clear at actual t-shirt size. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Wow. This person’s kinda a jackass, aren’t they?
http://www.nospec.com/ if they, or anyone else, would like to get educated up on this shit
It kind of blows my mind that ‘the winner gets’ NOT ONLY undying admiration of some random kid who is CLEARLY VERY (invested in being) SMART, but also to know that their t-shirt design COULD BE MAKING MONEY FOR THAT SELFSAME CLEARLY VERY (vocal about being) SMART kid! Woah! So cool!
