Idea: DC Cody Tshirts customized for an interest area
« on: July 13, 2010, 05:29:44 PM »
i was thinking it might be fun to have DC Cody tshirts customized to show pride in a specific programming language or operating system, etc.  might be fun?
like a donationcoder t-shirt with cody professing his love for c++ or python, or linux, etc.

If I could have one with a pic of Cody wearing this helmet, he wouldn't even have to profess his love for Delphi, and I'd still love it.  :-*

I still want to find a larger picture (or vector drawing) of the red Coding Snack bowl.  That red bowl, along with some "Coding Snack"-related text, would look badass on a black shirt.

Would that fit with the awards and achievements from the programming school?

I like the idea  :)

i could recreate that image if required (assuming the original image is not large enough for t-shirt printing). i'd probably have to modify it enough so it didn't look like a deliberate copy of someone else's work.

(or i could just do an exact duplicate, only larger. depends on the usage rights of the original image.)

CafePress is an excellent resource to have shirts printed (as needed).  They offer the advantage of a multitude of OTHER media (mugs, mousepads, clocks, et cetera).

this is a vector "duplicate" so it will scale to whatever size is required. the image below is at 200% of the original raster image.

it's not identical - didn't see the need. as it's vector i can easily change the colours and details if required.

original bitmap image at 200% on the left. vector image on the right.

that would look pretty cool on a shirt with some red and black text (in a communism-style font) saying something cryptic related to "Coding Snacks".

if you throw around a few ideas of what you want to add then i'll put it all together at the end.

i just wonder if the font should be more of an oriental style because of the chop-sticks. or is that too obvious?

(glad you like it tomos.)

Personally, I am with Nudone.  The oriental style was what I always thought of, not the communist bloc style...

That's what I was referring to in this post: http://www.donationc....msg212474#msg212474  However, like nudone and steepadept, I've always thought of it as an oriental style bowl.  I'm picturing two shirts:

  • Black t-shirt.  Large bowl image, red, centered, on the back.  Small "Coding Snack" text on the front, over the left breast area.
  • Polo-style shirt with small bowl image, red, over the left breast area.  Either a black or white polo would look good, methinks.

not saying this is the right font to use but it's free for commercial use and it looks kind of BladeRunner/oriental/future/mish-mash - which appeals to me. the justification is "coding" snack obviously relates to programming which relates to technology, relates to future, relates to blah, blah, blah.

but, i admit, there's nothing wrong with something that looks traditionally "Chinese" or just a plain helvetica (novelty fonts tend to lose their appeal after a few viewings, i find).

We're really lucky to have you doing this image stuff, nudone!!

That font makes my eyeballs roll in opposite directions!  ;D  It's the first time in years that I've looked even remotely normal…

What's wrong with:
CodingSnackInChinese - via GoogleTranslate.png

 :D

That is if Google Translate got "Coding Snacks" right  ;)

I love the graphic tho'... Chris is right: you're a genius and we're lucky!

thanks for the praise, but i can't really take much credit - i didn't create the original coding snack bowl.

mouser is the one that chose the DC icons, so it is his keen eye that we should thank.

I hadn't thought of that... but that's a funny (if not totally PC) idea  ;D

hmm, right. does that mean i was meant to just design something and that was all?

i hadn't because i've been waiting for more feedback and comments about what the design is meant to be.

i just thought everyone had lost interest in the t-shirt(s).

@nudone: Can you make that vector image available?  I'll put something together with it...
