Agi's design was exactly what we were hoping to get from a professional designer - he used his design skills to come up with a logo that was based on the brief but had a style and direction that we had never imagined. He produced a large quantity of files to help us flesh out ideas and was very responsive to messages.
How mynameistravis started their t-shirt journey
Last year we raised enough money to help free 7 people from slavery / forced labor through IJM (International Justice Mission - ijm.org) This year we would like to do even more and are in need of an excellent design to help with branding and revenue from shirt sales.
We have a large youth group that is passionate about taking action on the injustices of our world.
We are excited to see some fresh ideas from this design community that will be a mutual benefit to the designer and to our cause!
Our event, Smash Injustice, will include several activities, an award winning band - The Fundamental Elements, and a car bash (the dual meaning of the "Smash.") All of the proceeds from each activity as well as food also get donated to the cause.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Teens and college students from Lawrence, KS. Despite the stereotypes of Kansas, Lawrence is a more liberal and cultural city than most might expect in the Mid-West. We are less than 20 minutes from Kansas City.
A team of fashion conscious teens and college students will be selecting the winning design.
The winning design will have the words "smash injustice" somehow incorporated into the full shirt design. We would prefer not to have a small logo in the corner type of shirt. Rather, we are looking for design that one might find on a trendy t-shirt that one might purchase at the mall.
Also, we're interested in showing our faith in our actions. That means, we don't want a "preachy" shirt. It should be something anyone who supports standing up for others would like.
There are more specifics below, but you're the designer - do your thing!
