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.
