Firefox 4 T-shirt Design Challenge

Mozilla is challenging you to design a t-shirt for Firefox 4! T-shirts are a big deal at Mozilla, and your help is needed in creating the official Firefox 4 launch shirt.

The goal of this challenge is to create a unique design that captures the essence of Firefox 4.

The winning design will be printed as the official Firefox 4 launch t-shirt, a limited edition item featured in the Mozilla store and distributed to thousands of fans and contributors around the world.

Objective

Create a unique t-shirt design that captures the essence of the upcoming release of Firefox 4. You’ll be designing for the front only, as the back will already have the Firefox wordmark printed.

Before you start designing, here are some important information and inspirational themes to keep in mind:

  • Mozilla has given the browser a completely fresh new look, and loaded it with cutting edge new features. Firefox 4 is snappy and fast, faster than ever before! And you can take it with you wherever you go. But at the end of the day, it’s also simply about having fun. Mozilla believes the internet is a fun place, and Firefox is the best way to experience it.
  • At its core, Firefox is about people and is powered by an amazing global community of individuals working together to make the web a better place for everyone.
  • You’re highly encouraged to interpret the above themes in creative, abstract and interesting ways. Please don’t be literal. For example, note how the Firefox 3 t-shirt design embodies the concept of community in a creative way.
  • It’s not a requirement to use the Firefox logo in your design.

Prizes

The winning design will be printed as the official Firefox 4 launch t-shirt, a limited edition item featured in the Mozilla store and distributed to thousands of fans and contributors around the world.

Rules

  • Ideal printing space is roughly a 10×10 inch square canvas on the front of the shirt.
  • Please include a background color suggestion in your mockup. This will be the color of the t-shirt your design is printed on.
  • You can use a basic t-shirt template as a reference guide for placement and size when designing. But please submit only the design itself, not a mockup with the t-shirt.
  • Files should be uploaded as high-res (300 dpi) PNGs or JPEGs. But be sure to hold onto the original working files, because if you win we will need those. Be sure to optimize the file for print, and preserve all the layers.
  • Original artwork should be created using a scalable vector graphics editor program (SVG format), such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape.
