So we can chalk it up as a rookie mistake, but I got too excited about my t-shirt idea for the Student Volunteers at CHI 2016. The logo is really cool this year, and, more importantly, very easy to recreate on PowerPoint.
As soon as that logo was out I thought, "Yes. The shirts have to be like that. Indeed." so around November I crafted up this design.
I was so proud! Look at this art! Wouldn't anybody feel like an awesome super hero wearing a shirt with this emblem on it?
Well, after showing off to a few people in my lab, somebody pointed out that black shirts aren't ideal for SV's who want to be easily spotted in the large crowds. So I quick switched to a green shirt version, and even that came out awesome.
HOWEVER, apparently, in the original email explaining that the t-shirt contest was starting, they said the design had to be all one color. I get it, monochrome designs are way cheaper to print, and I should have actually read the directions. I'm grateful that I had the chance to throw together a rule-following option, but how is anything going to compare to these? So maybe this is what blogs are for.
