  • Maina 19:49, 09 Oct 2007 (EDT): #2 is the best! Share your Science with the handshake.
  • Reshma 12:38, 10 May 2007 (EDT): #5 with "share your science" on the back
    • Jason R. Kelly 01:58, 8 June 2007 (EDT): Are people requesting just the words "share your science" or do they want the handshake image as well?
  • Austin Che 13:49, 9 May 2007 (EDT): I vote for #6
  • Johncumbers 12:45, 9 May 2007 (EDT) now without circle, I like 5 best.
  • BC 12:10, 10 May 2007 (EDT): I also like 5 best.
  • Jasonk 12:18, 10 May 2007 (EDT): I like #5, maybe with #3 as the back.
  • BC 17:50, 3 May 2007 (EDT):I like 4 best and agree that it might look even cooler without the circle. "I also agree with share your science on the back".
  • reid 15:31, 3 May 2007 (EDT): I vote for 4. I like the separate line for
  • Vincent 14:47, 3 May 2007 (EDT): I like best 1 and 4, also because the double helix helps to relate better to what the community is about. And I agree that having a reference to an 'Open Science' / 'Share your Science' notion would be great.
  • Ilya 14:00, 3 May 2007 (EDT): My favorite are 1, 4 and 8.
  • Austin Che 13:30, 3 May 2007 (EDT): I agree with John that I don't like the circle. Could we see a version without the outside circle?
    • Jasonk 14:36, 5 May 2007 (EDT): I posted a couple versions w/o the circle.
  • Lucks 13:21, 3 May 2007 (EDT): I have to go with something like 1 with the double helix. That distinguishes OWW as having a biological focus. People might be confused with just the hands. (This is coming from an outreach point of view where we want to get our message out very clearly). Otherwise they look great!
  • Reshma 13:21, 3 May 2007 (EDT): I like #4 because it has the double helix there which indicates it is a science related website and it has the URL for the site. Maybe the back of 4 could say "share your science"?
  • Johncumbers 13:15, 3 May 2007 (EDT): I Jenny, I love 2 and 4, but the thick border around the circle looks too much like a no entry sign I think. could you make the colours of the hands in 2 blend into the circle color, and then have the change in color at the top and bottom of the circle... if you get what I mean, e.g half green half blue. 4 is also great, but perhaps a lighter color for the circle or no fill perhaps, again because it looks too much like a stop sign to me. cheers.. very cool.
  • Mac Cowell 14:17, 3 May 2007 (EDT): I'm partial to 1 because it reinforces the logo and address of the site (complementing the stickers). I don't think changing the colors of the outer circle would be good at this point because the stickers have already been made. I also like 3 as the back of the shirt, perhaps without the text.
  • Jenny 00:12, 16 May 2007 (EDT): I kinda like #4 as the front, and on the back, just the text "share your science". I like the emblem being encased in a circle because it is consistent with the sticker, and it also looks cleaner that way.

Archived discussion

  • Jasonk 15:28, 25 September 2006 (EDT):Would it be too tough to do a colored shirt since the logo has so many colors in it? I like this by the way ;)
  • Jennyn 10:06, 26 September 2006 (EDT): It wouldn't be tough at all. I tried doing this yesterday, but CustomInk shows the white in the background (in a really ugly way) but I'm sure if we submitted this, the artist that they have would be able to remove that. Will look into some other colors, though.
  • Jasonk 12:42, 26 September 2006 (EDT): Nice! Do they have a polo-type shirt? Not sure how hard it would be to have the logo/text crammed into a small space like that though.
  • Reshma 12:51, 26 September 2006 (EDT): I think the yellow tshirt color looks pretty good with the OWW logo colors. But I prefer the "standard" OWW logo with the .org addition (like on the black) to the "Join OWW" logo. I think the black tshirt looks pretty bad with the OWW logo colors. (I assume we are just ordering one kind of shirt?)
  • Jennyn 17:01, 26 September 2006 (EDT): I just posted a possible design for a polo. I think anything more would look tacky. I completely agree with you, Reshma. Those colors do not look good on black. However, I like the front of the shirt, so many just putting "" on the back in white typewriter font might do the trick.
  • BC 17:31, 26 September 2006 (EDT):I like these designs and agree with the comments above. I also like the original design below with the colored collar/sleeves. Could we get something similar from customink?
  • Hartigan 21:00, 29 September 2006 (EDT):I think all the designs are very good and especially the original design below looks superb!!! I agree that the coloured logo on the black T-shirt is a little weird. Maybe a logo in grayscale would be more suitable on the black T-shirt.
  • Hartigan 00:00, 3 October 2006 (EDT):This new design on the black T shirt (No 8) looks very cool!!!

Early T-Shirt Discussions

  • Jennyn 14:47, 15 June 2006 (EDT): We should consider doing a collection of T-shirts like H-Lounge (ringtone start-up from MIT). That way, we can do Sri's awesome idea of the "[My Favorite Protocol]" shirt, and maybe put "" on the back or something. I'd love to get involved in this, also, by the way. Smiley.gif I think the graphics that we have are cool, but more would be awesome!
  • Jgritton 11:53, 17 July 2006 (EDT): This seems pretty easy to do. I made a mockup at cafepress of one possible design. It took about 2 minutes. Wikipedia has a store [1] with a design similar to the "[my favorite protocol]" mentioned above. We could possibly set something like the wikipedia store up and get a little bit of funds raised as well.
