Hack a Day T-Shirt Contest winner

Congratulations to [John Keppel] for his winning t-shirt design. He wins a Dash Express, an in-car navigation device with both cellular and WiFi data support. It’s running Linux on top of the Openmoko FreeRunner’s hardware platform; yes, [John], we do expect you to hack it. We’ll let all of you know when we plan on putting the shirt into production. Thank you to everyone that entered!

  2. visionetiks says:

    I liked the green one better

    But o well, I’ll never have it anyway.. (Mexican reader here – can’t buy stuff on the internet)

  3. visionetiks says:

    Hey, how comes you can make comments with just the name and the mail? ie. no password, no confirmation (that just happened)

    Looks very nice, I’ll definitely be buying one. I like the redish color.

  8. amk says:

    @visionetiks, yeah no email verification here either, weird. comments are also not numbered now.

    apparently photobucket hates links from ‘hackaday’. Copy and paste the URL if you so please…

  11. ie says:

    likewise, congrats to [john]! good choice for representing hack a day. for those interested, here are my entries. and, no, i didn’t expect any of them would win. sure was fun designing them, though.


  12. Amos says:

    Congrats to John for winning with his utterly generic and predictable shirt design.

    Yeah, I’m bitter, big whoop, wannafighdaboudit? :P

    @ie: You should be proud of those! Good job working with the hiddeous, amateurish H.A.D. logo.

  13. Dale says:

    Yeah Lets see the Entries. I know my entry was way better than that. Whats the deal. I get no confirm if you got my entry, your site was down for a week after wards almost, and You had files that you couldn’t use in most Open source tools. Not bitter but I know that there were definitely Better Entries.

  14. What do you called the patterns/designs for the printed circuit board underneath the skull graphic? I am always trying to find such images on the internet for my own art stuff, but cannot figure out the right search phrase.

  15. root says:

    I love it! =)

    @michael slater:

    You can always search google images for a phrase like “circuit board traces”, although I believe most designs like that are just drawn from scratch (and they don’t have to make much sense). Just keep the traces to 90 degrees and 45 degrees angles and add in pads here and there and it’ll look just as good as a real circuit. You can also look up “printed circuit board” for some inspiration too.

    WOW an article of clothing that I would ACTUALLY buy based on the silk screen!



  21. Jon says:

    Awesome design… if you print it, I’ll buy it.

  22. strider_mt2k says:

  23. carloscorp says:

    Excellent design! Congratulations John Keppel!

  24. w2kjw says:

    Cheers! Great design. Now let’s see the other entries in a gallery.

  25. Black_Angel says:

    I’ll buy one. Why don’t you have all of the other ones that made the final list on a page so that people who want some different shirts can get them?

  26. Andrew says:

    Can I request a .png of the design? I would very much like to adopt that design for my school’s Engineering Club shirt (High School) [I'm the president] =D

  28. TechTips says:

    I need one ……. :)

  29. rrouter says:

    where i buy this t-shirt?

  30. Congratulations to the winner…a great design

  31. The nice part about the shirt is the skull makes it look like something quite stylish, and downplays the geeky nature of what it’s all about… Then again, nerds run the planet now – go us!

  32. Christian says:

    Is there any chance for getting the logo pattern in a higher resolution?
    I would like to screenprint the shirt.

  33. HighSpeed Digital says:

    I really like this shirt, but I keep checking and the store is allays down. are there plans to open the store or make a category of down-loadable graphics so I can produce my own shirts?
