Hooniverse & Blipshift want YOU to design a t-shirt


Blipshift needs your help. Our t-shirt making friends have decided that they want a t-shirt based on the general “Hoon” theme, but they’re not sure what that shirt should look like. You, dear reader, probably know exactly what you want on a t-shirt, and that’s why we’re turning to you for some help.

Presenting the Hoondonkulous T-Shirt Idea Contest! (See, we told you we needed help…)

We’re looking for any and all ideas here. In fact, we’re willing to reward the one idea or design that is ultimately chosen. That person will wind up receiving a new GoPro camera and, more importantly, our love. Click past the break for full contest details, including how to submit your ideas or designs. Once submitted, your entry will be voted on by other people before ultimately falling to the eyes of a crack team of judges from Hooniverse and Blipshift.

    I just want a shirt that says "Born To Hoon" and the parallels in the H to be a pair of 11s running down the shirt.

      I'll leave the PS file open until I leave work (couple hours…) so let me know if you have any ideas to improve it.

        I like it a lot. I was thinking of stacked letters, like
        I had to add the ____, but I am sure you get the point.
        God, I just need to learn me some PS. I have had it on my goddamn work computer for years.

          I never really officially learned, and my techniques aren't the best. I just started playing around with it a few years ago. Whenever I wanted to do something specific that I couldn't figure out, I just did a Google search and read tutorials. Basic manipulations are pretty simple. I can't do graphic design or photo editing for shit…

          1. muthalovin Avatar

            10/10; would rock on a slate shirt. This is pretty much how I pictured it!
            Thanks, Flick! If this one wins, I will buy a onesie for both my daughter and I.
            Also, I should spend my freetime playing with PS rather than goofin' on the 'Verse. Yeah, right.

            Haha, thanks! It was a great idea, so I had fun rolling with it. I'll have to submit it tomorrow, according to the one-per-day limit. But if it wins, I'll be sure to put you on the loaner list for the GoPro. 😉

          3. muthalovin Avatar

            Rad! Godspeed Flick! oohhhh, that would be a good shirt too…

          4. muthalovin Avatar

            Also, if you win on this entry, can you send me the GoPro for, like, a week or something? I will return it, maybe busted.

    If we're going with HOON, it's got to have a picture of Eric Bana's Beast power sliding through a corner.

    Submitted mine on the bookface.
    I'd buy my shirt.
    That sounded creepy.

    How about a shirt with say, a large 60's – 70's style Smiths tacho, with the redline area marked in plaid? Or would something like this not be obvious enough? Or too nerdy?

      Hmm, I like the basic concept — keep going!

    I've been trying to design something that pays a simple homage to the 3-pedal configuration for a while now. Maybe this should motivate me.
