Shirt.Woot’s Sports Fandom derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Sports Fandom derby asked artists to avoid jokes and focus on a more serious approach this week, though that directive was met with mixed results. Humor still made a strong showing at the top of the rankings, proving that regardless of Woot’s intentions their audience knows what they like and are happy to vote for it. But as always there are also a lot of hidden gems, so here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

I Like Football 2.0 by tobefonseca is a gorgeously sophisticated bit of simplicity, packing soft textures and detail in that make the football feel warm and dimensional.

Reach the Stars 2 by kharmazero immediately grabs the eye with its bright gradient, and the graffiti-inspired elements help paint a picture of action and motion.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.

Shirt.Woot looked at things from a new perspective with their Derby Editor’s Choice: The Other Side plus sale. With themes ranging from pop culture parodies to cute animals and clever slogans, it’s a diverse group of tees that has something to offer for most tastes. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Behind the Lolz by Patrickspens gives one plump cat the director’s chair to explain what goes on behind the scenes at a meme photo shoot.

Nicest Surprise: It’s Greener, Because by Mapinto explains a common phrase in a way most homeowners will get a kick out of.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design Mom Loves Broccoli knows that even if you’re not a fan, vegetables definitely score big with certain demographics.

Next week’s derby is all about Love! Or hey, maybe you just want to forget about this whole ‘love’ thing. That works, too! Either way, don’t include “Valentines” (or it’s variations) in your designs. And remember, nobody loves cream tees. BONUS: If you’d like, choose pink as your tee color…use hex code f4b7da.?

This derby begins Thursday at noon and continues through next Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales.

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Portmanteaus collection

Shirt.Woot celebrated wordplay with their Derby Editor’s Choice: Portmanteaus plus sale, but the results are a fun mix of slogans, cartoons, and even artistic designs. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Extremely Koalafied by Vo Maria has been a favorite of mine since voting for its brilliant punning and appealingly retro half-tone style.

Nicest Surprise: Bearaoke by Oneshoeoff is a quirky gem, and I love that it lets the viewer discover the pun for themselves rather than printing the wording directly on the shirt. It’s a cool concept even without knowing the pun.

Shirts I Am Most Biased About: My design Sarchasm Warning is for jokesters whose audience don’t always catch the punchline, while Mathletes are #1 delivers some humor that only math people will understand.

This promotion will only last until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. So if there’s something you like, grab it fast!

Shirt.Woot’s From the Other Side derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s From the Other Side derby had a theme that was very open to interpretation, and sent artists off in a variety of directions from Stranger Things parodies and puns to exploring alternate viewpoints. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Death is Watching You by thatquietgir1 turns a classic piece of propaganda into a properly creepy advertisement for the grim reaper.

Breakthrough Kool-amity by mapinto shows that suddenly breaking down walls can have disastrous results, with red juice splattered on the ground like blood.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Resolutions collection

Shirt.Woot rang in the new year with a their Derby Editor’s Choice: Resolutions plus sale, packed full of designs about what people intend to do (or not do) in the coming year. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Wishes by Vomaria fills the shape of a dove with messages of hope, incorporating many text styles to make each word feel unique.

Nicest Surprise: Grab Life by SteveOramA82’s subtle sloganing impressed me in voting, so I’m glad to see it made it to printing.
