== T-Shirt Logo Submissions (kept for Info:

  • Please submit designs for the Code4Lib 2015 T-shirt.
  • According to the recent poll, black is the preferred color, but we will also offer a dark green shirt (think hunter green) as an alternative.
  • The screen-printers generally prefer vector art files (ai, .cdr, .eps & .pdf). If you need help converting your design, email Christina at cmh2166@columbia.edu.
  • Here are the results from the Code4Lib 2015 Swag poll, if you're interested.

What to do:

  • Post an image file of your print-ready proposal by editing 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.
  • Include your name and e-mail address with your proposal.
  • 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.

Sample submission

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the code4lib conference. Simple, yet devious. Like a seemingly harmless peanut butter cookie, but after you take a bite, you notice the Sriracha burn...

  • Matt Connolly <mconnolly@cornell.edu>

This design is a word cloud created from the abstracts of the top n talk proposals (as ranked by votes on 11/25/14). If the timing permits, I'll update the design to use the list of accepted proposals. That would create a slightly different layout, but it would be close to what's shown here. (Full-resolution PDF)

This is based on an iconic sign in downtown Portland (this design might require licensing costs, though: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/bibs/article/430664).
