Well, new baby and all, I'm going to be slacking off and not coming to the sprint in February. :( To try and make up for it so you'll all forgive me (*ahem!*) I thought I'd try my hand at answering Boud's subtle call for help with the t-shirt design.

There's a few quirks that could be fixed if I could find the font used in the Krita logo. But hey, here it is in all it's alpha glory:

Any feedback?

I like it :-). I can ask the artist what the font was they used for the logo, though it's some time ago, and they might have forgotten.

Looks nice. What are the possible colors for the t-shirt itself? I don't really like white and the logo doesn't work on black.

Would it be possible to have some touch of Krita? With everything as vector graphics, it look a bit Karbonish ;)

Same here. What about a black shirt with the logo on a white background, landscape A3?

Okeydokey. How about this (very rough version):

Still thinking about how to get a bit more raster and a bit less vector / karbon in there, given that it's mainly text. Ideas welcome!

This is great! I love the second one the most. Whee~~~ This will be one of my best t-shirt eva~!

Somehow swag t-shirts are best in black, but maybe we can try gray for this one? I like the gradient highlight from the original design. Is it possible to keep it?

Glad to hear we have a Canadian delegate at the hackfest! :D

I still have one up my sleeve for both black shirts and the hilight... I could try keeping the 2010 text black (on a black shirt) but with a white glow around it to make it visible similar to the Kubuntu xplash. With black text, we should be able to bring back the hilight!... Will give it a try a bit later...

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Given you're all the ones likely to be wearing it, its all helpful!

PS In case anyone's wondering, yes I do have plans to fix the gradient on the "Krita Hackfest" text. ;)

OK, here's my attempt at white I described above. This version (D) is codenamed "Black 'n' Shiny" :)

May the original logo designer have mercy on me for the liberties I've taken with their work....

What about using the logo from krita.org or something, that looks similar?

Glad you like it Adam. Given that it's only the one word ("Krita") which other text would you include / remove if we modified that design? It's a bit tricky given that it uses a reflection underneath, which would be hidden with any of the other text there. It also doesn't use the official Krita logo anywhere. Yes, that's my bad, as I designed that one, too! lol.

The official one just really didn't fit the colour scheme of the rest of the site, where here we're just working pretty much with black and white, so almost anything goes.

If you're so inclined a mockup of what you're thinking can also help explain things as I know many good design ideas get lost because words don't do them justice (I can always dig out the original file from the site if you'd like it...)

Yeup! I will be the Canadian delegate :D

Out of curiosity, what does it look like if you invert all black to white? (ie. the black fonts and all). It might solve the problem of 'black on black'

Unless I'm misunderstanding you it would look like post#143501, or did you mean something different?

It doesn't have the shiny part. I guess D still looks the best :)

I went to the specialised textile printer (sent there by the normal print shop, where they can't print black T-shirts except with a simple design in one colour) and they told me that the 'shiny' design won't work in screen print, but kubuntiac's first white-on-black design will. Screen-printing resolution isn't as high as computer-screen resolution, so the result of trying to print the shiny design will be very pixelly.

As soon as the design is finalised, will someone please send me an .eps file of it so I can order? I'll mail everybody who is coming to the hackfest or otherwise entitled to a hackfest T-shirt to ask what size they want, no need to say it here.
