Design Me A T Shirt

Post by Jack Bauer »

As we say in this part of the world I couldn't draw the dole so if we have any artistic types on here I'd like a tshirt design. The only requirement is it must say some version of : "Damien! You're doing it wrong!" :)

Can we add the statement in small font Toyota engineers would be paid more😊

PS I'm not a Toyota engineer but respect how much effort they went to when designing an inverter

Edit: Quick 1st draft courtasy of google and ms paint :)

A free t-shirt and a spot on your private beach will do as payment for when it makes you millions.

I think something black and white with no colors or grays will look clearer and also will stay looking good after lots of use on a shirt. Also, it allows inverting the colors for a dark shirt without it becoming weird looking.

The last one looks pretty good. Are these graphics public domain, CC0 or similarly licensed so that they can be used? They look like ready-made symbols taken from somewhere.

I think the charging cable makes it a bit cluttered.

A play on a “danger high voltage “ style sticker would be neat

I like that one. It's simple, stylish and produces many questions. The downside is that you can't really wear it on a job, as the high voltage symbol is reserved for actual high voltage things.

Lots of GREAT ideas here! I'd ONLY buy from one of the two designated webshops, aliexpress can scam them all they want, even for U$1.00/ea, I'm not going elsewhere.

I do like the DC>AC idea too!
