2022 T-shirt Design Submissions
Submissions and voting have concluded for the 2022 T-shirt Design Contest.
A call was issued for submissions for designs to be featured on the 2022 Code4Lib Conference T-shirt on Wednesday, February 16th. The requirements were as follows: Designs must include the conference name, Code4Lib 2022, and are limited to a single color. The default is a white logo on a black t-shirt. If you would prefer a color other than white, please include these details in your explanatory text on the submission form. It will be considered, but not guaranteed. All designs must be original and the intellectual property of the person entering the design. All designs must also be compliant with the conference code of conduct.
Through the submission (Google) form, creators were required to submit their name, email address, explanatory text about the design, an image file of the design. Each creator was required to confirm that the design was original and their own intellectual property, was compliant with the conference code of conduct and give their permission for their design to be used for the 2022 Code4Lib conference t-shirt and other conference materials (e.g. slide templates).
Jeanette Claire Sewell
"Just a simple design with a friendly buffalo as a play on the conference location."
"Binary computer coding - capturing the technology theme while acknowledging the conference name, location, and date"
Heather Greer Klein
"The strong lines and art deco elements are a nod to Buffalo's rich architectural history, and the triangular sides echo the brackets used to build code."
"For a long time I've wanted to create a design using the rainbow of hex colors. I refer to these ALL THE TIME coding for my library. You'd be surprised how often I have to reference random hex color codes when updating our systems from LibGuides CSS elements to our online catalog buttons, and even the library website to match our institution's style guides and branding. On a personal level I've been embracing rainbows more subtly as a librarian through my work, be it wearing rainbow bracelets or sweaters to express my own bisexuality in the workplace or trying to bring the "rainbow" to our library's collections by highlighting diverse books and other resources through in my work. I hope this t-shirt design leverages the hex color coded rainbow as both a symbol of the Code4Lib diverse and inclusive principals and as a recognizable tool that all programmers turn to on a regular basis."
"Based around the Jacobs School of Medicine, where the conference will be held, I used the outline of the windows and negative space to make the design, which also resembles a barcode (a callback to libraries). It helps keep the location of the conference cemented with the conference itself, keeping them connected by place."
"This was created by a bunch of librarians during a round of Tee KO, and fun was had by all. This shirt and phrase combo was the winner of the game. It was then recreated by the team for submission. It's magic!"
