ImaginationEncirclesTheWorld by lidstrom82 ImaginationEncirclesTheWorld by lidstrom82
My entry for the DA t-shirt design contest. The design was inspired by a quote from Albert Einstein, in which he declares "imagination encircles the world."

Leave it to Einstein to place imagination above intellect!

I tried to go for something simple, with mass appeal, that would be easy/cheap to apply to a t-shirt. This concept also translates well to most t-shirt colors (black, white, red, navy, etc.).

This is my first contest entry of any kind - feedback is appreciated!

I like this. It's simple, clean, and any Deviant anywhere can easily relate to it. :)

My only suggestion would be to either align the logo on the back of the shirt, or stack the text and the logo.

Ahaha I like this a lot! I like the effect of putting all of the continents on the one side of the planet, even if it alters the classic image of the world, it doesn't exclude anyone, like deviantArt. The dA logo looks good in its shape, shame you couldn't have altered it slightly more to make it more round on the corners where it hits more of the circular edge of the planet. I say this is quite creative and definitely in good spirit, though I must admit the typography is a little tricky on ease of visibility and reading. Maybe a little too much space between each letter? The font CHOICE is excellent in my opinion, as is making it encircle the globe.

Good luck dear!

I love what you did here.

The blue, the white and grey just work so well together. you made the right choice by using the grey for the shirt acting as a back color, that way, it makes the logo/image stand out much better and its easier on the eyes than if it was a black shirt.

O like how everything follows the circle. the font around the logo was well picked. its easy to read and the spacing between the letters.. it... it just works! haha.
You did great, I WOULD TOTALLY WEAR THIS SHIRT and i would vot for it, if the contest want already closed :(

and thanks for your feedback on mine too! much appreciated.

although its late for me to vote, i guess i just have to leave my thoughts on your design, or telling you what i like and dislikes, honestly you made a right choice in choosing the DA logo at the center, and i like the color, its minimal colors and details makes it easier to print, i think the only thing im concern about is the word at back of the shirt, i think you could put it a little bit on the upper. thats it. all in all "A masterpiece". sorry for my grammar, i hope u understand it,
