Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

Business Name

Umm, we're crowdSPRING - duh!

What do you do?

If you're wondering about who we are then take a look around the site - we're the guys and gals who built this thing. We're fun, creative, laid-back, insanely handsome and generally all-around cool people (according to our moms). But, most of all, we've built one of the largest and most popular creative marketplaces in the world - and that means that anything that represents us (including our t-shirts) needs to be REALLY creative.

This will be the official crowdSPRING t-shirt. It should reflect the amazing talents of our community and ooze creativity. Make a design YOU and other designers and writers would love to wear.

List the size requirement(s) for your clothing design

The design will be placed on a t-shirt.

What is your industry?

Advertising and Marketing

Describe the target audience for your clothing design

Our site is aimed at two audiences: small businesses and creatives (designs and writers). Even though these groups are very different, they do have one thing in common: an appreciation for great creativity! So, whatever design we choose has to be so good that it screams creativity. When we wear one of these tshirts or give them out to people in our community, we want people to say, "man, I wish I had a t-shirt like that!"

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your clothing design?

Creativity, fun, community.

What clothing design styles do you like?

We like many different clothing styles. At this point, we don't want to limit your ideas - let's see what your creative minds can do...

How many colors should be used in the design?

Please limit the design to 4 colors.

What colors do you want to see in your clothing design?

We are open to seeing your designs with the colors you think work and look best.

What colors do you NOT want to see in your clothing design?

We are open to seeing your designs with the colors you think work and look best.

What adjectives should best describe your clothing design?

simple, clean, modern, and most importantly, creative.

How will you use the clothing design?

We'll use the design on crowdSPRING's official t-shirts.

What must be included in the clothing design?

I don't think there's a single thing that our design 'must' have. We're open to just about any ideas and, in fact, we like things that are creative and different! Obviously, there are some things that in general help tie the design to crowdSPRING (our blue color, the logo, etc.).

Do you have additional info or links you'd like to share?

Fonts should be converted to outlines, or you must provide links to show us where we can purchase the fonts. Please use 300dpi minimum.

No matter what your design is, please give us some comments about why you think it's good for crowdSPRING and, most importantly, how it relates to what we do. That is, a design can be really wacky and out there - which would be fun - but if it can't be related back to who we are, then it's just sort of a distraction. Know what I mean? So just be sure we keep everything relating back to this central theme somehow and we'll be great!

Hey Guys,

The name is crowdSPRING, not "we're crowdSPRING, duh!"

We were just being fun with the title, it does not need to be on the shirt.

Thanks! Awesome submission so far!

Please focus on something that represents both communities on crowdSPRING. We want the shirt to really represent us and what cS is all about.

Awesome job so far everyone!!!

Hey Everyone,

Awesome submissions so far! This is definitely going to be a tough decision.

Please do NOT put crowdSPRING across the stomach of the T-shirt. It is an odd placement and I've many people doing this.

Thank you!

Greetings Everyone,

Due to the holidays we have been slow to provide feedback over the past 3 days. We will be reviewing the remaining entries today! Thank you all for your submissions!

Greetings Everyone,

Since we are at the end of the project I will only be giving feedback one 1 entry, if you have submitted the same designs in different colors. This does not mean I have not reviewed the color variations, only that we do not have time to score.

Thank you for all your submissions!

Hey Awesome cS Creatives!

We have extended the project for 24 hours to give those who received feedback last night time to submit their revisions.

If you did not receive feedback on your entry it is because your design wasn't on the right track for the official cS t-shirt, but we truly appreciate your hard work in this project, as well as site wide!

You are all remarkably talented and the decision process is going to be tricky!

Thank you all once again for your participation and talent!
