DLightning got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Concrete Artistry needs a cool t-shirt design
Check out DLightning's T-shirt contest…
Polished and stained concrete floors at college apartment buildings (student housing on campus). Our crews are required to wear "work shirts" on the jobsite. We want to wear cool and artistic t-shirts, so we are looking for a design to put on the back of our T-shirts that says "CONCRETE ARTISTRY". (The front will have our logo...) Our work is dirty, and we create beautiful stained concrete floors after the dust settles. Polishing concrete is a job for Roman slaves, who rubbed stone on stone to make polished floors in ancient Greece. If you feel inspired to create a cool t-shirt graphic for Concrete Artistry, we will all appreciate your efforts!
What's your vision?
Graphic design for T-shirt back. - Must use "Concrete Artistry" - One color design for low-cost printing - Back of the T-shirt ONLY Design Elements: (ideas? Use any, all or none) - Chiseled stone - dust - artistic strokes - hand made designs - Polynesian tribal designs? - Lightning - Diamonds (we do diamond grinding) - Blades? (cutting through to a polished look) Note: We are looking for something cool that the young guys working will be happy to wear around a college campus. We do diamond grinding and polishing on concrete floors, cutting existing concrete slabs until they are beautiful finished floors. We call ourselves as "Artisans", doing concrete artistry, so something that represents that type of work. "Men at work" type symbolism I guess. One color design, will be put on white, gray and earth-tone shirts.
Spray paint, or graffiti designs look cool, but don't really represent our work very well. If you use graffiti like elements, they need to be part of a bigger, more artistic design. Thank you to all the designers who have already submitted designs - we appreciate your work, and some of the designs are crazy out there. We extended the contest in hopes of getting some different designs that are more rustic and concrete, so to speak. Our company Logo looks modern and clean, so we are looking for something rustic and dirty that contrasts with the logo.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. T-shirt starts at $199.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their t-shirt.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
DLightning collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
