Design a Tee Competition! Extended Deadline

Everyone likes a kick ass t-shirt. And we at The Double Negative are no different. That’s why we are looking for 3 people to re-imagine The Double Negative as an image to adorn a range of the best t-shirts ever. We want people to include the words somewhere ‘The Double Negative’. Thats it. It can be any interpretation of that as long as those words are included.

The winning designers will be made immortal through a profile in Little Black Book, and will be interviewed by us for a special written feature that will be posted on The Double Negative site. They will also receive a percentage of every t-shirt (of their design) sold.


All you have to do is come up with a cracking idea (using no more than 3 colours), and send the design (high res images please) to competition[@] by the new extended deadline of 5pm on Wednesday 15th February 2012. The shortlist will be selected by The Double Negative Team, and the winners be decided by our discerning readers over a period of 10 days. Good Luck!

All submitted designs are limited to a maximum of 3 colours (not including the colour of the t-shirt!).

Shirt colour for all printed designs is limited to the colour currently available at the printers used and is subject to change at any time according to availability.

The Double Negative reserves the right to make necessary minor adjustments or changes to submitted designs in order to conform artwork to manufacturing requirements.

The Double Negative also reserves the right to make any other final decisions pertaining to a design’s ink colours, sizing, or placement, as discussed with the designer.
