We have a big all nighter coming up for our high school students called Endless Night. It should be a LOT of fun; lazer tag, batting cages, dodgeball, floor hockey, swimming, video games, inflateables, etc. We’re even giving away an iPod Touch (sweet!). So I decided to have some fun designing a t-shirt for the night – it will be a giveaway that we’ll be passing out over the course of the night. And now, for your viewing pleasure, the genesis of my t-shirt design:
This was my first design. Personally, I think it’s hilarious. However, some seemed to think it was a little too much potty humor and insinuated the wrong kind of party. So I went ahead and toned it down a bit.
This was take two. I got rid of fart man in exchange for break dancing dude, but left the swirly duo in. Personally, I think stick figure swirly people are completely funny, but my lovely wife found them completely offensive, so I swapped it up.
I finally thought I was ready to roll. Heather was on board, fart man makes me crack up every time, and I was loving the t-shirt design. However, my assistant, Chris, convinced me that none of the girls would wear the shirt anywhere in public, and only some of the guys would. I thought he might be right, which defeats the purpose of the shirt: turning my teens into walking billboards for the event. So, that brought me to my fourth, and final design:
Personally, even without the potty humor I still love it. Some thing about stick figures just seems very cool to me right now. So what do you think? Which design would you wear?
