Voyageur Design Contest --- Winning Designs

Recommended Posts

In light of the Gold Cup debacle, and a few events coming up

involving our national teams, I was wondering if I can get design

input from you about a t-shirt that can be mass-produced.

The rules are:

1. The CONCACAF symbol (or something similar) must be included.

2. It must be a color design and inspired by something Canadian.

3. It must have, a its main message:

" I WAS ROBBED AT THE GOLD CUP"

4. And it must be posted on this board, for scrutiny/judging.

The best design will be eligible for prizes. I'll let you know

at a later date what the prizes would be. Probably a package

involving a finished T-shirt with the winning logo, DVD copies

of Canada's Gold Cup games (all), a Voyageurs scarf (when they're

done), and a Canada Adidas sweatjacket.

This is all for fun, of course.

***** About the DEADLINE: July 15, 2007 **********

Let the games (or designs) begin! Cheers.

should it also say Voyageurs somewhere in it?

Sure, if you want. Bonus points.[^]

How about one with a ref/linesman? Or a Kevin Pipe-lookalike?

Your input very much appreciated.

BTW, I will not own the design, and it will be PUBLIC DOMAIN for all Voyageurs to use.

We will even try to print a few of these and give them to the boys in red. I'm sure they'll

appreciate it.

Awesome work guys. I have no talent, so I'll leave it up to the experts. But I think incorporating Jack Warner is a good idea.

On the front page of this website it asks for a donation to keep Voyageurs online. I'm new to this site, and I don't want to step on toes, but I was wondering if some of these designs could be put on t-shirts etc at Cafepress http://www.cafepress.com/ with proceeds going towards keeping this site online.

Thanks

Would using the CONCACAF Gold Cup logo potentially be a Copyright violation? I ask, simply because it would seem that this particular event may act as something of a catalyst for the players, and perhaps we might want to really drive this thing...you know, help create and identity/buzz. Onthe other hand, we might not.

I can't actually take credit for this one, as it was done by my wife, who works as a graphic designer.

EDIT - HOW DO YOU POST IMAGES HEREE ANYHOW?

Unfortunately, it has to be posted to the internet somewhere, then linked. You can't link from your home PC.

That is actually not a bad solution, as the costs for production are taken care of, and folks could choose. You have to pay postage, but it is not too bad, I have bought stuff from CafeExpress and had it sent here.

It may, that's why we are saying "something similar". The whole

design thing is a spoof, and no profit was ever intended. So I don't

think we should worry too much, as it is for fun/amusement.

But the contest is REAL and I'm awarding the prizes. Hopefully, we

can use the design to give something to these players. Imagine

your favourite player wearing the V's shirt ...
