One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - :: scott ::
Working with ::scott:: was a great experience. I was concerned, never having sourced a design through a website, about what level of quality I would get. I had provided a fleshed-out brief and a lot of visual imagery, and didn’t want anything cookie-cutter or facile. I am working on a concept that is targeting an un-obvious demographic within a sector burdened by historical assumptions, and so the usual stereotypes wouldn’t work. It was clear that ::scott:: had read/interpreted the information and distilled/edited a wide range of inspirations into a clear design. It was a relief when I saw his initial submission early among the others, because he clearly “got it,” and had the skill to propose a design that would be flexible enough to hold up on various platforms/media and still retain an essential integrity to be recognizable as one brand. As we worked together, he was responsive to my requests, and it was a collaborative process. He had opinions about his choices for the various elements and justifications for those opinions, but was still open to trying and adopting changes. ::scott::’s entries led the pack the entire competition, and I am grateful to have found a designer of his caliber. Clearly he deserves his Platinum rating on this site.

How qpac09 started their t-shirt journey

Brand name

Joey Kangaroos


I decided to start up a t-shirt line mainly because I think it will be a fun project. I enjoy t-shirts from johnny cupcakes, pacsun, urban outfitters and would like the design to fall into that category. If chosen, I will most likely contact you for addition designs for the line.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

My target audience will be mainly Teens - Young Adults. I am mainly focusing on the younger generation that enjoy wearing trendy clothes. Shirts will be printed on American Apparel Tees.


I really like how "Johnny Cupcakes" incorporates the cupcake logo in their t-shirt designs and logo and would like to do the same with my brand. Instead of a cupcake I would like a silhouette of a baby kangaroo to be used. People should be able to recognize what the silhouette is and it also has to be different than the "Kangol Kangaroo." Below are some general requirements that I'm looking for.

- Baby Kangaroo Silhouette (this will most likely be used as the logo of the line and will be used on sweatpants, polos, etc.)

- Modern Design. Something you could possibly see in a Urban Outfitters or Pacsun.

- You do not have to use "Joey Kangaroos" on the t-shirt if you think the graphic is adequate.

I have added below a couple of links as references. The last link is an example of the type of silhouette I am looking for.

Please feel free to be as creative as you would like. If you have any questions feel free to ask.…ming-soon/
