Shirt.Woot’s Countries derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot went international with their Countries derby, asking artists to make shirt designs about countries (real or imagined) and the things they’re best known for. While some very familiar countries like Canada and Japan got quite a lot of attention, it’s also nice to see some more outside-the-box inspiration in the mix. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Airstrike! by ste7enl connects Russia’s trademark architecture with their most famous gaming export, Tetris, for a smart gag that looks great while getting a laugh.

Middle New Zealand by jrberger connects Lord of the Rings to the land it was filmed in, something any fan of the movies can appreciate.

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 NSF… Anyone derby voting highlights

From curse words to obscene imagery and just general jerkitude, Shirt.Woot’s NSF… Anyone derby specialized in shirts with messages that aren’t safe to wear at work, or anywhere else. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Life’s Short – Don’t Be a Moby by yazmoq makes a famous whale a total jerk, but it’s so cute you can’t help but still root for him.

Stay in Bed by 14Eight keeps things simple with a stylish one color print that puts an alarm clock at the center, supported by small icons that help to tell the full story.

Shirt.Woot’s The Big Bang derby voting highlights

Science and math references made Shirt.Woot‘s The Big Bang derby a nerd paradise. Test tubes were especially popular, but space and periodic table themes also abound. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Go Science! by mekazoo keeps things simple with a sports-style swoosh, but the bright palette and cursive font feels bright and fun.

Science, Please! by vomaria caps off its punny slogan with a vintage-inspired scientist striking a dramatic shushing pose.

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 Derby #715: NSF… Anyone

It’s good to be bad in Shirt.Woot‘s crude new derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #715: NSF… Anyone

Hide your Mothers, avert your children’s eyes…we’re going dark for this derby. We are looking for designs that poke fun, are moderately risque or down right rude(ish).

This week is not safe for anyone, including the politicians. That’s right politics are allowed with a big, fat BUT…you must depict both sides either in the same political design or with 2 entries. Any political entry that does not have a corresponding balance submitted within 24 hours of the first entry will have to be rejected – and feel free to hit that tattle button and help me out with that one!

Just remember we won’t print anything offensive, nudity or profanities that are not disguised creatively.

This derby begins Thursday at noon and continues through next Thursday at noon. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will each earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales. Those winners will be sold on Friday (1st), Saturday (2nd), and Sunday (3rd). Additionally, other designs may be selected for a Plus sale on the following Monday, with each selected design earning $2 per item sold.

Shirt.Woot’s The Letter M derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s The Letter M derby left the theme very open, giving artists the leeway to explore whatever type of design they wished from slogans to pop culture and even purely artistic. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

A Musical Moment by jasneko makes the case for slowing down and enjoying some tunes, all done up in a lovely palette of mossy greens.

Magical Menagerie by tgentry makes Harry Potter quite sophisticated with a stylish bolt packed with references to the series nestled together in gold.

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.
