Cool Kicks got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Design a men's t-shirt for a new brand that gives profits to charity
Check out Cool Kicks's T-shirt contest…
Modern, cool, trendy - something along the lines of what a brand like RVCA, Patagonia or Burton would sell. Think of surfing/snowboarding brands when designing this shirt. While we are associated with helping raise money for cancer & other types of research, this should be a tshirt that men would want to wear on any occasion.
I am looking for a shirt that conveys one of these things (in context with a brand that gives money to charity): Strength, Courage, Fight, Power or Faith - but in a cool modern design. The shirt should not only contain the name of the brand - that is not what I am looking for. You can also use a short phrase or psalm on the shirt that includes one of the words listed above (for example, Faith over Fear), or can use a symbol that represents the Trinity. Symbols and design elements in addition to words tend to look the best. No particular slogan or logo is necessary, but I have included some of the elements that we use at factgoods.com. The shirts are meant to be worn on an everyday basis, but the profits go to charities. It's ok to use an element of one of the attached files, but the purpose of this is to have a design that does not primarily feature the logo.
What to avoid
Designs should be relatively simple and clean - and work well on different colors of shirts. Designs should be family friendly - no profanity.
