Shirt.Woot’s Vacation derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Vacation derby is a solid mix of pop culture references, travel destinations, and preparation for a trip, encompassing the whole experience of a getaway. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Charged Battery by imisko pops a minimal landscape scene into some battery framing to create a clear message about the recharging power of rest.

Slothcation by pawsatwork grabs the eye with its rounded cartoon forms, bright colors and thick shading, imagining a scene so fun that it doesn’t even need its slogan.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) 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 Summer Book Club derby voting highlights

Reading was on everyone’s mind in the Shirt.Woot Summer Book Club derby. Some entries referenced specific books, while others tackled the concept of reading in general. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

It’s Magic by anarist is beautifully arranged, with a variety of books that makes you want to dive right in and start reading.

King of Books by pawsatwork is full of great textures and shading that make the swords seem to gleam and the crown appear to glow.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold.

Shirt.Woot’s Shirts of Bad Advice derby voting highlights

Sarcastic slogans took centerstage in Shirt.Woot‘s Shirts of Bad Advice derby. Artists came up with all kinds of things not to do, from procrastination to dangerous habits, and the contest’s hand-drawn or computer manipulated font rule led to some really interesting text treatments. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Steal by burnapaperzach has a playful, almost noodle-y quality to its lettering that makes the phrase feel like a fun daydream. The surprise of the little cartoon robber in the S is a charming touch.

Follow Your Heart by Gammaray85 uses contrasting type styles to communicate a clash in opinion, and works as a parody of real motivational shirts.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) 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.
