Ahmed1988 got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Create the next t-shirt design for Startup Weekend Bay Area
Check out Ahmed1988's T-shirt contest…
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups! Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds. Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.
What's your vision?
We are looking for a badass t-shirt design for our August 2011 event in Palo Alto, CA (the event is called "Startup Weekend Bay Area, August, 2011". - Vector logo attached for Startup Weekend - Beaker needs to be in the design - Color schemes are flexible, but want to keep it simple (2-3 colors max) - The words, "Startup Weekend Bay Area, August 2011" can be stylized however you like - Take inspiration from Ed Hardy t-shirts (very organic rockstar look) - Sponsors need to be integrated into the shirt - I don't need the logos, just the names weaved in somehow into the design (be creative!) These shirts are starting to become collectibles, and I want this event to have a very unique and memorable design. It would be really great if people wore this shirt outside of the event, without it seeming like blatant advertising. Our Sponsors are: UserVoice Kauffman Foundation AOL Viadeo Zencoder Vertical Response OpenTok Women 2.0 BetaCandy oDesk Twillio VenCorps Microsoft Amazon Go Go Mongo! 99designs The Storek Building You can also check out the website at: bayarea.startupweekend.org

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.
Ahmed1988 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.
