Hack a Day T-Shirt design contest

We need a new t-shirt. The current design is entering its third year. Help us out by designing a new shirt to give away at conferences. Dash has donated a Dash Express for first prize.

Some ground rules:

  • You must incorporate the skull and wrenches logo in your design. You’ll find a larger version below.
  • You can enter as many designs as you like to hackaday.shirt@gmail.com (JPG, GIF, or PNG mockups only please)
  • The design can’t violate any copyright laws or trademarks.
  • The design should be one color and the shirt doesn’t have to be black.
  • By submitting your design you give us non-exclusive rights to use the image in the design of a Hack a Day t-shirt as well as for other Hack A Day promotional materials.
  • We reserve the right to choose no design at all if we don’t like any of the submissions.
  • The contest ends September 15th.

[Phesarnion] found the long lost Hack a Day font.

Yes, the contest is open to residents outside the US; we’ll come up with an appropriate prize.

  1. I don’t know the font, it looks similar to terminal. I just used verdana so they got the idea of the placement. I’m sure they plan on changing to the official font when the design is chosen anyways.

  2. Sweet, something I can try for once….I like to hack, but I’m not all that good right now. I’ll see if I can get this one finished before I go back to school.

  3. Hey, I used this site for the last batch of shirts I got. They were the cheapest I could find and were pretty fast. There are some pictures of the shirts in several cameras, but we haven’t gotten around to putting them up anywhere.


  4. What format would you prefer submissions in?
    I’m assuming that png is fine?

    also, if our submission involves multiple files, do you mind if we zip/rar them?

  5. Soo hows everyone designs coming :D? I made one. I think it came out really good, clean and simple but I want to make a few more
