Two apparently...

Me too: http://www.cafepress.com/It_Depends

I'll throw all the proceeds towards the IxDA. Btw I'm not in any way
affiliated, if this is a bad idea let me know.

I'll take suggestions if people deem my 2.15 minutes spent in Omnigraffle
not worthy of their wardrobe.
cheers :-p

So this is when we start talking about how to improve the design? :) (Great
idea, btw.)

1) Personally, I only where logo-type shirts if the logo is in the center on
the front, like it is on the women's version. Upper-left logos are kinda out
of style. Haven't worn one of those since Corona shirts were all the rage (I
actually didn't wear one then either).

2) Why italics?

3) Why only white? Black is the designer color of choice, isn't it? Think
about your audience here. ;)

1) Will change to center, sorry.. been sitting in corp land for too long
with too many freebee shirts.
2) Statement from wearer. However, I'll make it normal
3) Yeah, I think white on black is nicer. Will do that tomorrow, or will
accept an image and upload it. Note though, the ixda logo will get dropped

Thanks

Have we done ethnographic research about the black type on white background?

We should probably do some ux design research.

Ahhh - a classic example of a UCDer bending to the whims of user demands. ;)
(Kidding!)

Awesome - thanks, Pauric.

We had a thread here, a long time ago, about designers' color of
choice. Maybe we can use it.

I think the final verdict was black.

My favourite swag has always been black, but losing the logo would be sad.
I guess whether or not the logo stays on ..... depends.

Robert, sir, your t-shirt is ready.

http://www.cafepress.com/it_depends

Although, the prices are a tad high. I've marked them up ~25% to
$25 each.

Are you committed to this? If so, I'd like to blog about it.

Very nice - it looks great! Ironically, I didn't order the black one. I went
with brown. Turns out it's a good color for me. Thank you sir!

Committed - yes. Every female/male T-shirt sold makes $5 or $6
respectively for IxDA.

I'll happily make the cafepress logs & paypal transfer summaries
available to the IxDA financial boffin.

regards -p
