We are Apigee. We make free tools for developers building applications with APIs, or for companies that provide APIs, to make them better- for learning, analytics, protection, debugging and more. We have thousands of developers on our platform and we want to give them t-shirts as a small token of our love- T-Shirts made by APIGeeks, for APIgeeks.
These T-Shirts are for developers and geeks of all languages (Ruby, RoR, PHP, Java, ObjectiveC- we don't care. We love them all). APIGeeks are serious about their work, but they like to experiment and play with new things. They have a sense of humor but they like their designs clean. Jokes involving REST, SOAP and OAuth are always appreciated. They are innovators and cutting-edge, creative and playful.
The t-shirts will not be t-shirts you wear to the gym or to bed. They are AWESOME enough to wear on the street, to work and meetups. The image should be able to scale easily to all t-shirt sizes and work for all genders.
Color is up for debate but something darker- likely gray-scale- not white or black. Think slate, something neutral. Suggestions happily taken.
The main theme is "I <3 APIs". We'd like our logo on there too but not picky about where it goes- front or back, on the side, whatever. The logo should not be huge, but needs to be readable. "I <3 APIs" is the main message to get across.
Take a look at our website (http://www.apigee.com), our "I <3 APIs" stickers (http://apigee.com/blog_detail/i_hea…i_stickers) for basic treatment philosophy and attached logo for color scheme basics and "Brand feel".
We are looking for something bold but not obnoxious- something clean and slick, not cluttered, but still playful.
