Vin DeCrescenzo got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
t-shirt design for Mardi Gras Casino and Racetrack
Check out Vin DeCrescenzo's T-shirt contest…
Mardi Gras is a Casino with a Greyhound Racetrack in Hallandale Beach Florida. They have gambling (duh?), slot machines, a poker room, bars, restaurants and entertainment.
What's your vision?
Mardi Gras Casino is holding a Comedy Challenge where Stand-up Comics will be competing at the casino all summer and fall. To help promote this we are having a Facebook contest among Casino goers that plays off of the the Stand Up Comedy Challenge. We are going to hand out several thousand FREE T-shirts to people at the casino and then ask them to take a picture of themselves in it doing the funniest thing they can think of (no nudity. most of the patrons are seniors so this is a good thing). They will then upload their funny photo to Facebook where fans can vote on which one is the funniest. The winner will win Dinner for 4 and Tickets to see Paula Pondstone (or what ever else is lying around we can give away) and meet Paula at the Casino when she performs in front of thousands on Oct 22nd. You can learn more about the Comedy Challenge here: http://mardigrascasinofl.com/events-casino-florida/ft-lauderdale-live-comedy-challenge.html The T-shirt should both promote the event and encourage a funny photo from the person wearing it. Design Direction We are very open to input on creative design concepts. We have included 2 Suggestions for Design Concepts attached in PDF. Please use the tag lines from those in another way if you have an idea. The T-shirt should be 2-sided We are open to input on T-Short color Graphic element colors should keep in mind the color scheme from Casino logo and web site: http://www.playmardigras.com/ We are thinking something like a concert T-shirt.

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.
Vin DeCrescenzo 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!
Naska was very patient with all my detailed requests and worked very hard to get me exactly what I wanted. Naska has a lot of printing experience which was great for me to understand this world of printing better. Thank you Naska, I will be back if you will have me.
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
