Re: [contrib] What would you like to see (and buy) from the Textpattern swag store?

Nice read. Great designer.

I kind of like the idea of a limited edition (from the images, it seems .net had a limited batch of 100). Maybe we’ll borrow that idea in the future. Products (in this case a particular design) tend to be valued more by people when they know they’ve got one of the only few available.

This would make a great design contest initiative too. Maybe for a magazine tee…

I like the toned-down work on the hammer and chisel here (compliments of txp:fr)…

The hammer and chisel still reminder me of “The People’s Democratic Republic of Textpattern” :-) but I think the idea of a smaller sticker would be great. Or a temporary tattoo maybe?

Here’s an opportunity lost. (Imagine this one, for example, having been Txp.) The kinds of things we should all look for in the future.

Much respect for everything you do, Destry, but…
  • Halftone filtering a perfectly good vector logo
  • Angling it 8 degrees
  • superimposing an artsy swash of yellow
  • then adding a tagline about simplicity and elegance

…is a bit ironic, no?

+1 for the bloke approach. I want mrdale on a black t-shirt with the peoples republic of textpattern (basic logo) on the back. That looks all kinds of badass and at my age every bit helps.

I’d buy a Mr. Dale dartboard. :)

Seriously, though, in case it wasn’t clear, that’s not my design work, and I wasn’t suggesting the whole design for a t-shirt. I merely pointed out I liked the “half-toned” hammer and chisel. Nothing more, nothing less.

And I’m totally crackin’ up about that, because it’s so true!

Sorry, I know I’ve outdone my welcome in this thread, but…

+1. Though I’m skeptical about democracy anymore. What about just The People’s Republic of Textpattern? I think a new world order is in order.
