As the summer is around the corner, I would like to move forward with another topic, which is official OpenWrt project T-shirt.
I liked how the OpenWrt project identity refresh(logo, colors) was handled here by the community, so I would like to approach this T-shirt topic in the same spirit.
First of all, in this phase 1 I would like to collect the initial ideas from the community in the next 14 days. Then I'm going to select top 5 ideas with the most votes (use +1/thumb-up forum post voting feature) and create a new poll to select the first community candidate, then take it through the official project voting process, where I'm going to use my vote for the community poll winner.
I'll then ask graphic designer to prepare T-shirt design based on the selected idea, iterating the final design here on the forum as well.
Ideas should include description (by text, sketch/image, whatever) of complete T-shirt, in other words what should be on the front and back of the T-shirt, it's possible to define the color(s) as well. For available T-shirt colors, you can use Gildan's style & color guide as reference (see the last 3 pages).
Please try to make this topic clear and easy to follow, being on topic, only post your T-shirt ideas or vote for any of the previous ideas(posts from other forum users) with +1/thumb-up forum post voting feature. For anything else create separate forum topic and ping @ynezz there.
It's allowed to provide more then one idea, just remember to make them separate posts inside this topic, thus allowing separate votes for each post/idea. You can vote for more then one idea, you should limit your votes to the max. of 3 ideas.
Idea: Friends don't let friends run vendor firmware
Front: OpenWrt logo, tired/slow/leaking/stinky/spying(privacy)/smashed/insecure/locked-down router/device/AP (depicting that vendor firmware part) on one side Vs strong/fast/healthy/secure/privacy-respecting/open router/device/AP on the other side (depicting OpenWrt)
Back: OpenWrt logo, Friends don't let friends run vendor firmware text and QR code pointing to https://openwrt.ifw.cn/
When You Can Use the OpenWrt Trademarks Without Asking Permission ?
You can make t-shirts, desktop wallpapers, caps, or other merchandise with OpenWrt trademarks for non-commercial usage.
So nothing prevents you or anyone else to do so already. One can simply take the PDF logo (or export the SVG) and send it to your nearby t-shirt producing service and you should get your t-shirt back few days later.
With some delay that we regret, we present ourselves with the intention of collaborating with the project. We enclose some revised sketches with a new 'royal blue' t-shirt, a new printing simple in the back and a correction of a mistake in the sweatshirts and the polo shirt. We hope you like them and we will value your contributions!!
