Semi-Finalist: "dLICIOUS" by deviantARTGear Semi-Finalist: "dLICIOUS" by deviantARTGear
Submission to the deviantWEAR Design Battle 2010

This entry is a semi-finalist in this year’s battle. Please support this artist by favoriting, submitting positive feedback and spreading the word if you would like to see this design produced as an actual shirt!

NOTE: Please leave your comments for this deviation on this page, not the original submission, for your feedback to qualify as a vote in the semi-finals.

Artists Comments:

OK, so here's a little something different! I don't do much vector art, but I really should do moar, so... my entry for the deviantWEAR contest. Yum. It was challenging making it look like there was transparency without actually using any... I think it looks best on the "coffee" colored shirt.

Colors used: Pantone 100 C, 116 C, 122 C, 130 C, 138 C
Recommended t-shirt colors: Coral, Dirty Orange, Coffee, Heather Black, Army

(I cropped the text from the template for simplicity's sake, so it bears repeating: the dA logo and this shirt template design are copyright to deviantArt.)

Which do you think looks better? Text or no text? [link]

P.S. - I ate the navel orange I used as a reference. It was delicious.

Just wanted to say, if I haven't before, a big THANK YOU to everyone who's commented here and shown their support for this design! I never expected to get such a positive response and I love you all! :tighthug: To everyone who's asked about a t-shirt, dA had said there might eventually be more designs chosen for print, and although it hasn't happened at this time, I will surely keep you posted if this design is ever selected for print.

Thanks so much everyone! Congrats to the winner here: [link] , and I hope you'll also check out two of my favs from the semifinals [link] [link] and one that didn't make it but that I thought was awesome [link] .

Thanks again! :glomp:

I must say that this is my most favourite design so far. I know that there are a few people at college who LOATHE dA, (I also think it has a few irritating kinks and wrinkles, but it's alright to find good artwork and showcase your own.) So wearing some t-shirt with a massive"I <3 dA!!!" Logo would be really uncool.

It reminds me of the hidden triquetra and pentacle jewelry wiccans used to wear back when witchcraft was frowned upon. To any old passer-by, they'd see it and go, "Ooh, nice orange T-shirt! I wonder what it means..." But fellow deviants would see the logo and say, "Hey that's cool. There's a fellow member over there supporting dA!"

To sum it all up, I'm in love with this tee. It definitely gets my vote!

VOTE! I'm totally for this shirt and happy that it got to the semi-finals :w00t: it's dAlicious!
I love it because there isn't any indication that it means deviant art and for those who now it, they'll recognize it and others will think 'an orange as a sunset, wow' :)
I'm sure this will lead to many conversations and perhaps some new artists on dA^^

I really like this one, because the logo doesn't stand out like in the others. You kind of have to look for it.
I can see people asking me, "What's with the lemon?" and myself saying, "DeviantArt.com" and then they have to go check it out. :D

with such subtlety and minimalistic approach to the dA logo and brand, this feels almost as if an inside joke or story.

with or without the background of dA membership, this vector would be a pleasure to wear - simply the simplicity and elegance of the design would be enough for most people to purchase out of such branded sites as 'threadless'; yet the injection of the dA culture really brings this home.

a juicy shirt (facepalm) regardless of your background or love for wear. i'd wear one, maybe two in the winter.

cheers.
