Macau Creations got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Check out Macau Creations's T-shirt contest…
We know that every designer has his or her strengths and styles. We want you to design a shirt that looks so good that even YOU want to buy it. These are the only rules, make something that shows the best of YOUR style to win the final prize. We will give each and every designer feedback during the competition. Hope to see each one of your amazing works!
We want you to show us your personalized creativity. Show us what you can do when you have full creative freedom and a chance to make great aesthetic design. This will be a BLIND contest so no cheating off others and we'll be sure to give everyone plenty of feedback! We are looking for designer-grade t-shirts, not the logo'd uniform at a corporate luncheon. Feel free to use modern photoshop/AE techniques (i.e. pixel sorting, processing etc.). There are MANY others to be explored. Do not feel restricted to just those types! But remember, always mind the medium. Every design must respect the t-shirt's physical nature and visual presentation in order to make it look goooood. Check out our attachments for an idea of the quality of design we're going for. You'll notice not every design has to be complex, some of the greatest design is very simple, but it's the way it works with a shirt (the medium) that's the most important! Some t-shirts won't even have a specific image of anything recognizable but will look amazing through patterns, line and colour. Remember, even artists/designers here that don't win have a great chance of working with us for well paid projects in the future. We will be using this competition as a way of recruiting talented individuals later on.

What to avoid
The t-shirt design only has one small rule to follow. The design cannot be printed as "all-over" shirts. Here's an example of "all-over" prints: http://www.jakprints.com/all-over-shirt-printing
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.
Macau Creations 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.
