Voyageur Design Contest --- Winning Designs

Recommended Posts

Well, the red background is representative of the t-shirt colour. I've just been selecting different backgrounds to represent different options. I would probably go with more white in the case of a red t-shirt, but this way you get to see the true design (including the outlines) that wouldn't be apparent on a white background image.

good design.

As an aside, I think it would also be worthwhile to get some standard voyageurs t-shirts made, like with the 3D 'the voyageurs' logo on the front of a red t-shirt, with a big circle logo on the back. i'd buy one.

I would like to throw my hat into the ring, but it's futile. I love it strobe. Utter genius.

Thanks for everyone's patience and participation.

I actually used a design firm to help me judge (don't worry it was

pro-bono) so this is what they had to say :

"These are all pretty good T-shirt designs for the finalists.

Congratulations on some excellent submissions. Although they all

have a certain amount illustrative and typographical qualities,

the 2 variations of the "we got jacked" and "I got jacked" designs

have integrated the various elements the best.

It is a more unified graphic than the rest, it uses better colour

choices than the others, the composition also employs better scale of

elements and overall, the most appropriate design for a wearable item."

So the WINNING DESIGN is ..........

Congratulations strobe_z! You're design is the best amongst your

peers, hands down!

Please email me your address and particulars and you'll be getting

your prizes shortly , as soon as I get the scarves.

2nd place (or in FIFA terms, 10 points towards your rankings) ;) is:

Congrats Kibby for placing 2nd. Your design is friendly enough that

it can even be on t-shirts worn by kids. Very impressive. And

again, please email me your address and particulars.

Thanks again to all those participating, and mods if you can please

post the winning design on our homepage.

Thanks Jamit for doing that. We need to remind ourselves how good and

talented our MNT team really is, despite the U20 performance.

Our ranking, 4th in CONCACAF, is no fluke and is a sign that we REALLY have

an excellent shot of going through in World Cup Qualifying. Why wait for 2014,

when we have the talent for 2010?

I have been trying to add something, really. It just has not been uploading. Might be on my end. I will keep trying.

Thanks a lot Jamit.

It's a honour to have my design win. I really appreciate the feedback (both professional and otherwise), and while I'm quite pleased to accept the prize package, I just hope other Voyageurs will get a kick out of wearing our collective displeasure proudly on their chests.

I'll provide anyone who wants one a high quality copy of the image.

Oh, and after seeing myself on CBC during the U20s, one thought comes to mind...

any chance of the MNT Jersey in an XL size?! [:I]

Just a thought: every once in a while the topic of site funds comes up, would it be possible to mass produce some of these shirts and a few dollars from each would go to maintaining the site? or has this already been discussed

I think Polish Lynx Fan might be interested in organizing something like this. Proceeds from the sale will be divided at a percentage to be decided later by PLF between funding the website and buying lap dances at the Brass Rail.

Polish Lynx Fan ... man, that should be in the Voyageurs Mythology

thread. Quite an interesting saga in the lives of the V's. ;)

So the million dollar question... when/where will we be able to get these beautiful t-shirts? It'd be nice to have a section ful of them on September 12th.
