Rand Paul's Crowdsourced T-shirt Designs
After formally announcing his campaign for President, Sen. Rand Paul has been working hard to secure votes. For now, though, the votes that he is counting on are for T-shirts. Paul has been running a T-shirt contest on his official website to allow fans to design T-shirt for sale on his campaign store. Visitors to the Rand Paul website could submit T-shirt designs until the deadline of April 30. Now, the ten finalists have been announced, and voters can decide which two shirts they want to see on the site.
The rules of the design were as follows:
- Designs had to be kept to two colors, and the logo had to be used without distortion.
- Only designs for the front of the shirt were accepted
- The design had to be kept in the center of the shirt without expanding outward
- Any color shirt could be used, but it must be a short sleeve T-shirt.
The finalists include a design of Paul wearing sunglasses with the phrase, "Liberty Bro" in graffiti-like script on the front. One has Paul's trademark Wayfarer glasses, with the phrase "A New Vision." Another has "The NSA knows I bought this Rand Paul T-shirt" printed across the front of a red tee. Finally, one spoofs the classic tuxedo T-shirt design, but instead is designed as a suit with a red tie, with the "Rand" logo on the "lapel."
To see the whole batch of finalists, visit the Rand Paul campaign store.
