Shirt.Woot’s Words derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot focused on innovative typography this week for their Words derby. While past typography derbies have strictly limited the amount of supporting graphics, this contest had a looser approach that gave more leeway to illustration. That means a more diverse set of designs in the top ranks, and a lot of variation in percentage of words to graphics across the board. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Big Yikes by Wheels03 transforms its letters into banners, and does it in a way that reflects the message of the text.

I Love Nature by wirdou makes each letter out of something from the natural world, either plant or animal. Each drawing is charming and exudes personality.

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.
