CSSS 2010 Santa Fe-TShirts
From Santa Fe Institute Events Wiki
|CSSS Santa Fe 2010|
Please submit t-shirt design ideas here. Voting will take before lectures on Monday June 14.
Remember: T-shirt designs will be on solid black this year.
This is just a random, silly idea I had, based off xkcd - if you're not familiar, here's a good one (the most recent is a bit inappropriate). This can totally be modified if folks have ideas/suggestions. I was thinking this could go on the front (in white? blue?) and the SFI logo on the back, upper center. Kyla Dahlin
I chuckled when Dan mentioned that Rolling Stone magazine had called SFI "a justice league for renegade geeks." I didn't get a chance to see the old designs, so I don't know if this has been done before, but I think we could run with that idea. I don't have much graphic design experience, but it could be as simple as having those 6 words in an interesting typefont on the front and the SFI logo on the back or vice versa?
We could toy with cartoons that use this idea, as well. The Superman logo/theme comes to mind. Anyone have any thoughts?
-- I love the idea. :) And, yeah, it could be as simple as having those 6 words. - Erika Fille Legara
Just a basic idea - could change some of the words (ie- "I was here." or say somewhere "who knows where we'll go next"). Could have the SFI logo on the back. Note: I have seen a shirt like this with 'Strangely Attractive' (Borys Wrobel).
Really feeling like there should be a shirt with a quote from one of the lectures, just because there are so many choices (besides the renegade geeks one!)! All colors can be modified. (Megan Olsen)
Andreas: I like this a lot. I would only remove the random use of capital letters.
A Few Ideas

Illusions of Reality
Social Networking at CSSS 2010
(using the well-known illusion of a staring couple vs. a goblet)
Of course, the greatest complex system in the world...is the social brain.
From the girl's perspective:
And the guy's:
There is one more design forthcoming from your friendly neighborhood studio, The Butterflies of Chaos, which unfortunately will not be available until the end of the week. It is too delicious a design not to do, so we'll be doing it regardless of official deadlines.

Andreas: I suggest a creative commons licence is more appropriate for a t-shirt design.
