Style/theme ideas for the t-shirt

We like clean design. We will probably print on a Nike Dri-FIT T-shirt. Please be sure to check out the gallery at: to see some of our past t-shirt designs for style reference.

King Estate is Oregon’s largest winery and the leading producer of
premium and ultra premium Pinot Gris. King Estate is nationally
recognized as a leader in Organic viticulture and eco-friendly farming
practices and advocacy. Our visitor center is home to our tasting bar
and a world-class white table cloth restaurant that focuses on locally
grown and raised ingredients, many of which come directly from the
organic gardens on our 1,033 acre certified organic estate.

Each year King Estate produces a new harvest t-shirt to
commemorate the vintage, the 2012 vintage will be our 21st harvest. This design
contest is to produce 2012 vintage harvest t-shirt design. The t-shirt
needs to include a King Estate logo as well as some reference to the 2012 vintage or 2012 harvest. We are artful people, we like subtlety and mystery, your
interpretation does not need to be very literal, but it can be, you have
artistic freedom to come up with something fantastic.

In recent years we have printed our t-shirts on Nike Dri-FIT
t-shirts, and would be inclined to do so again. This is a
high-performance moisture wicking material. We are open to designs that
call for any color t-shirt and can be long or short sleeved. Designs can
call for printing on front, back, or sleeves and we are also open to
non-conventional placement of graphics (not just front chest or middle
of back, feel free to get creative with this too).
