VikingThrashMetal got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
New t-shirt design wanted for VIKING
Check out VikingThrashMetal's T-shirt contest…
We're an old-school thrash metal band from the 80s with a new album coming out this year.
What's your vision?
We're looking for a design to be printed on black shirts. It needs to make thrash metal fans say, "I CANNOT live without that shirt!" We'd be happy with just white on black, or 2-3 more spot colors if the design warrants the extra printing cost. The necessary elements in the shirt are the VIKING logo, plus two characters engaged in an epic battle. The characters are 1) the main red-bearded viking from the cover of our "Do or Die" album, and 2) the freaky scarecrow from the cover of our "Man of Straw" album. (These can be found by doing a Google image search for "Viking Do or Die" and "Viking Man of Straw".) Backstory: our fans tend to be very polarized between the two albums' styles, and we'd like one shirt that both camps will like. Therefore, the battle should be intense, but with no clear winner yet. Taking artistic license with these characters is encouraged. It can look like a Frazetta painting, a John Buscema comic book, an Iron Maiden album cover, or whatever cool style you are the master of. (But please no anime - we really dislike anime.)
Target audience is male, from 15-40 years old. He is likely holding up the devil horn sign with both hands and sporting a denim vest covered with logo patches of his favorite metal bands. He drives a muscle car (or a skateboard, if his license has been taken away by the courts). He counts his greatest victory as someone telling him, "Dude, that shirt is SO metal!!!"
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. T-shirt starts at $199.
