Derby entry comments for Derby #107: Bags

The turtle (right hand side 3rd down) has an A on it’s shell.

What’s up with that?

I would totally buy this if you could print it as a shirt. I absolutely LOVE it. Even if you changed it to have no Woot reference on it at all, I would be estatic to have this as a T. It’s a very underrated design IMO.

Alrighty! We are down to the wire with the derby, let’s get some votes in! Fists in the air!

I appreciate all the support and votes that you guys have given this design! I didn’t expect that it would get this high up! Thank you

So thats what it is!! I still think an alligator would be better.

You wouldn’t be getting any. He’d be zombified and constantly falling over, drooling and mumbling about completely nonsensical things, whilst talking to a cat he thinks is a dog.
Thats the power of the hypno bag.

Thanks for all the awesome comments guys!!
I thought i was gonna do really well this derby, but i guess this just wasn’t my derby. And the fact that there were many more awesome designs coulda had something to do with it.
47th ain’t bad. Just gotta get higher next time!

This is hilarious!

Hrmm… Not so. This is a well executed illustration, but if you are not a cat person, than you would not want this on your bag every shirt you get. The designs in the fog are less specific in topic and are probably more appealing to a greater audience.

I am not a cat person and would not want this to win, however I did vote for it due to its overall clean and well done design. A well executed design always deserves a vote in my opinion.

Pretty sure it’s just a scribble. It’s based on Vandalized Turtle.

If you’re talking about the entry I think you are, it should be noted that the rejection reason was “modified logo”. Presumably the rejectionator saw the MAIN logo in the center of the design, modified, and hit his big red “REJECT” button. I agree that the design did in fact follow all the rules, but the problem was that the actual logo wasn’t noticeable - an important trait in branding. If the logo isn’t noticeable at a glance, it doesn’t well reflect the shirt.woot brand - and that WAS one of the catch-all rules Woot had in place for this derby.

I have to side with tgentry and his interpretation of alteration/modification/destruction of a logo, but you make some great points. My gut instinct is that Woot will leave the logo angled if tgentry’s design wins, but I also wouldn’t be surprised if they did “correct” the orientation.

Lol cute and so true :smiley:

I just posted this in the Contenders blog but figured it couldn’t hurt to put it here because you can never say thank you enough. Thanks to everyone who voted and kept me in the fog. It is deeply appreciated. I unfortunately, well fortunately, am out the door for our family camping trip and will not get the actual results until I come back Sunday. Thanks again especially to rachel1aaron (last time I promise) who was a huge help in bringing the design to life. Before I have a Sally Field moment, I’m going to sign off. Thanks again everyone! Wish me luck! Okay, maybe you can say thank you too much. My excuse is unabated excitement.

I have to agree with KIDA26. I like the concept, but the quality isn’t all that incredible. The layout really throws the whole thing off for me. Too much empty space in the middle. It also kind of reminds me of the Wu Tang symbol.

I dislike that this is in the fog. I appreciate the motivation behind it, getting all those winners in there, but I just don’t think it looks good. :-\

How did this not win? Auggghhhh! Twas brilliant.

I’d just like to thank the few people that voted for me… YAY!

It would be neat if the bag the cat was looking in also had this image on the side of it… one of those infinite sequence things. I did vote for this, sorry it didn’t win :(.

Speaking of small details…I like how the electrical sockets are smiley faces… lol

Looks like there’s no need for that towel now! Congrats on your Editor’s Choice… so is ThatRobert going to take back his Best Loser since you didn’t really lose? :wink:
