Shirt.Woot’s Happy Thoughts derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot encouraged artists to spin positive messages in the Happy Thoughts derby. They also requested that graphic elements be kept to a minimum, with the emphasis on slogans that are hand-drawn or manipulated in some way. As you’d expect, the current quarantine is on a lot of minds and as such is heavily reflected in many of the designs this week. But there’s also plenty of material that will still be fresh and relevant after the situation comes to a close. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Shoot for the Moon by paxdomino is a clever motivational spin on the poor aim of Star Wars villains.

Get Happy by cdrewlow has lovely looseness in its lettering that perfectly communicates its retro theme.

This derby continues through Monday at 8pm. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs may be selected for future plus sales and sold for $2 per item each.

Shirt.Woot Derby #755: Happy Thoughts

Look on the bright side with Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Monday at 8PM CST: Derby #755: Happy Thoughts

This derby is text only!!!

We could all use a break from the news, so let’s think happy thoughts! I want them on tees, text only with embellishments. Embellish out the wazoo…but no full pictures or major graphic elements.

Phrases, slogans…keep it light-hearted, happy and positive! As much you bunch of pessimistic, introverted, sarcastic folks can…

Also text must be hand drawn or computer manipulated. I still don’t like comic sans.

This derby begins Monday at 8pm CST and continues through the following Monday at 8pm. Three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will be printed as daily offers on Tuesday through Thursday and earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales. Other designs may be selected for a Plus sale, with each selected design earning $2 per item sold.
