BSF got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Promotional T-Shirt for Author Brad Boney
Check out BSF's T-shirt contest…
Since the author writes gay fiction, we suggest using a "rainbow apostrophe" in the word BRAD'S. The rainbow flag is a symbol of gay pride. See an example of a rainbow apostrophe in the image file below. But you are free to come up with your own clever idea for the apostrophe.
The contest is being run by a group of Brad's fans, but we are showing designs we like to him and passing his comments onto the designers. The front of the t-shirt should read "Step into BRAD'S World," laid out like the first attached image file. The word "BRAD'S" should be constructed from the names of Brad's characters. See the image below of "BILLS" as an example of what we are talking about. The character names to be used are in the attached word doc, broken down into three categories: Main, Supporting, and Minor. Guidelines: ALL MAIN CHARACTER NAMES MUST BE USED. They should be the LARGEST font size and should pop. * Try to use as many Secondary character names as possible. The font size should be SMALLER than the main characters, but bigger than Minor characters. * Use Minor character names to fill in. The font size for minor characters should be the SMALLEST. No minor characters should pop. They are listed in priority, so work your way down the list. You do not have to use them all. The back of the T-shirt should be a quote and Brad's website. "There is only one of us." bradboney.com Please provide a close up of the front so we can see how the word BRAD'S has been constructed using the character names.
What to avoid
No cursive or script fonts, please. Brad doesn't like them. Keep your fonts clean. Check out his book covers for examples. bradboney.com
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. T-shirt starts at $199.

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.
BSF collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
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.
