Hi all,

Talenthouse are running a competition to design the 40th anniversary t-shirt.
I designed one and it would be great if you would vote for it today (but only if you like it, of course!). It seems to be a system based on support and voting.

Here's the link:

I've also attached my design below.

best and thanks!

"I initially considered creating unique imagery, but decided against it. I
may be a designer keen to generate new visual concepts, but I'm also a
fan who would prefer a T-shirt to celebrate Queen’s visual legacy.

Because Queen is many things to many people, my design concept is
simple: Include as many images of Queen as possible (without overloading
the design), focusing on the diversity of its album art. My aim is for
anyone who views the image to immediately recognise ‘their' Queen in
there somewhere. Can you spot all the albums?

I arranged the Hot Space album portraits in positions reminiscent of the
iconographic Bohemian Rhapsody/Queen II image, with the logo beneath to
visually substitute Freddie's hands. Alternatively, the logo could
appear on the reverse of the T-shirt.

Note: This design was created with images culled from the internet. If
my design was lucky enough to be chosen, it would be nice to access
higher resolution imagery with which I could ‘upgrade’ my design for
print."

Only 6 days left to vote!

I need a few more votes even to get into the top 100! So many entries!

Without meaning to sound disrespectful to Julia or Mr. Jingles, who have both shown us some great designs, this is the better one - I really like it, but it would work better on black, or with a black crest.


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

thanks Thistleboy 1980!

But I'm still some way off even getting in the top 100! I need 15 votes to do so!
surely, some kind soul (brothers) can help me out with a little vote!

:)

best

I must say your design is by far the most original I've seen in the competition.
There are others already in the Top 100 so unoriginal! You have my vote (and my mom's also) ;)
