Some Insight Into Our Process
These are some things we are taking into account when rating/eliminating a design:
Is it obvious that the designer read the brief?
Does it take into account the limitations of traditional screen printing?
Does it look polished? Is there obvious attention to detail or was it just slapped together?
Is the design creative and unique? Is it eye-catching? Is there an obvious concept behind the design or is the "cool factor" the design's main appeal? (either concept or cool is fine)
Is the design something we think our attendees would like and therefore purchase?
Some further explanation:
If your design is eliminated without feedback, it is simply because it is not what we're looking for. While we would like to give feedback to every design, due to the large number of submissions, this will not be possible. We are focusing our feedback on the designs that are already on the right track. If no action has been taken on your design, it's because we are still in the process of making a decision about it.
If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the main comments section, and thanks for participating! We've already got some great options and are looking forward to all of those yet to come.
