Derby #16: Information Graphics


#1

#2

Okay…off to work on a new idea!


#3

Cool theme, but lots of text again. Won’t please the artsy types.


#4

But on the plus side, it will require some form of design, which means any just text entries are doomed from the get-go


#5

Yeah, hate to bite the hand that fed me and all… but I had my fill of all text in the last derby.


#6

By the way, given last derby’s postulation for the new theme, I love how the google ads are all for ducks


#7

Drat. I was so sure it would be ducks. :wink:

edit

AHA! :slight_smile:


#8

Wow, I actually have some ideas for this one. Ones that I can execute myself that is. :slight_smile:


#9

you guys ready for “GI Metro 2: Electric Boogaloo”??

Also,

DOWNLOAD VERSION 6 OF THE ‘REAL-TEE’ TEMPLATE…INCLUDES IMPORTANT COLOR UPDATES

that is all…


#10

This one’s right down your alley! Good luck!


#11

I feel artistically cramped.

Edit: Wait no I don’t, nevermind.


#12

Technically, there should be an absolute minimum of text…This is “Information Graphics”…The whole point is to convey a message quickly with the use of images instead of text.


#13

if i don’t come up with a good idea soon, i’m going to be very disappointed in myself…

Also, another note. Infographics are a VERY popular t-shirt theme…so before you design it, google it. Many designs that are based on real life infographics (any kind of warning sign, for instance) have likely been done before.


#14

Hmmmm… I have an idea. A zombie idea. Question is, can I beat any other zombie ideas out the gate?

I also agree, it would be nice to have a “no text” rule for the next derby.


#15

Didn’t we have a derby like this before? I vaguely remember a shirt that looked like the NYC Subway line…

EDIT: Yes, I found it. It was the GI Metro shirt. What was the theme for that derby?


#16

the theme was ‘Maps’


#17

I read through the stuff reguarding derbies and couldnt find an answer for this.

Is there a limit to how many submissions you can enter?


#18

A few limits, actually - your connection speed to woot’s servers, the speed you create shirts at, the amount of time you need for other things (sleep, food, work, etc). But theoretically speaking, I think they let you submit as much as you possibly can.


#19

OK lets see… If I starve myself, deprive of all sleep, who needs work!, and do nothing but create I think I can make…

Wait that doesnt seem right

Carries the two, devides by pi, natural logs

Huh… Maybe it is.

Either way, thanks for the answer!


#20

For you guys talking about no text for this derby, it really wouldn’t make much sense. Most “information graphics” you’ll find in media have text with them.

A pie chart doesn’t mean anything unless its parts are labeled, etc.
