(formerly the thread Worst Department T-Shirts Ever.)
So a challenge for the MGoArtists out there. The University of Michigan's History Dept. wants MGoBloggers to help design a new t-shirt, presumably for alumni, faculty and current students. Because? I don't know, because we have read more Foner than you and we are are damn proud of it.
Here's how this went down. My Facebook like-ing of the History Dept. brought up the contest, which I linked thus:
The History Department is letting folks vote on which 1-minute photoshop design to use for the department's
IM softball teamofficial 2010 t-shirts.
I mean, seriously Marlett?!?
I put in a request to Kathy to let the MGoDenizens have a crack at them, because for real.
And then wouldn't ya know it: Kathy wrote me back:
Go for it! I need to be able to get them printed, though.
So here's the rules: it's like the MGoShirts. One sided, one color (maize) to be printed on a blue t-shirt.
No using officially licensed anything (unless you hear different). Submit them to me unless you hear different. It must clearly say "History" and be obvious it's Michigan. Keep it classy.
UPDATE 2: It's okay to use the official school wordmark as it refers to the school:
Read the rules. You can't alterate in any way: http://www.logos.umich.edu/usemarks.html
