Code4Lib 2013 T-Shirt Design Proposals

Designs for the official Code4Lib 2013 conference are now being solicited! Submit your proposal by December 31 for consideration!

Here's how it'll work:

  • One entry per person, please. (We reserve the right to rescind this rule if we're in need of extra submissions)
  • T-shirt designs should be 1-sided, single color designs suitable for screenprinting.
  • Include your name and e-mail address with your proposal.
  • Post an image file of your print-ready proposal to this wiki page. You can host the image yourself or use the Upload file feature of the wiki. If your print-ready document is different from your displayed image, include a link to the print-ready file.
  • If you want, you can add a line or two of explanatory text, color specifications, etc., which will be included with your design on the Dieboldatron.
  • Place a horizontal rule (----) on a separate line after your submission.
  • All proposals posted to this wiki page while the calendar year is still 2012 will be considered.
  • Questions? Direct them to akorphan (at) ncsu.edu

This is my proposal image for the code4lib t-design for the 2013 conference. It's the Willis tower with the words code4lib, with the tower acting as the "L" with Chicago 2013 underneath.

The image used was taken from the Wikimedia Commons.

This is two color variations of one design. And, in case anyone doesn't get the reference: Put a bird on it video

I asked permission to use the octocat. If it's not possible, we could use a normal "o" as git is under GPLv2 and has no such restrictions on use. Update: GitHub regrets to have to deny use of the octocat or GitHub branding because they are not a sponsor or organizing the event. We will not be voting on the octocat version. I did inquire about GitHub sponsorship though... :)

I know mine is late…I didn't know about the deadline on the 31st. I humbly ask that it be considered. If not…well…I will be heartbroken, but will somehow pull through.

I am having a professional artist from the IconFactory help me design this (I confess to having an ulterior motive).

I'm Rich Wolf (rich wolf@uic.edu) and I'm presenting.

This idea picks up on the Chicago city colors (white, blue, red) and shows Libby, the Librobot:
