Thumbs up

I like it! But I think you may want to tone down the realism on the car. A more ambiguous car outline will keep us safer when it comes to copyright stuff.

Great start though!

Let me get out of Mac hell and back into an environment where I can work and I'll see what I can come up with. To be fair, and to most people, it looks like most of the other LeMans vehicles out there. (Specifically the Acura, Dauer, MG and five or six other vehicles on the next page) The different is the TDI on the side....

However for legal purposes, because VWAG and VWoA have absolutely no spirit at all, I'll try and muck it up more. I'm also not "pleased" with the other two items, so I might just print and freehand (put my tablet to use) something in vector and work from there... that way, should my artwork be selected, we'd have tshirt ready vectors.

Works for me. I like where you're going with this, so I'll shut up and see what you can come up with.

I'm not a designer, but my recommendation would be to try and keep the logo proposals simple and not too detailed. This will make it show up better on tshirts, websites and such. If there is too much intricate work, the detail may not be replicated onto the tshirts properly.

i worked in a screen shop during college, the initial design certainly won't translate into a screen well at all. I've also not had the luxury to work on this at home (due to, ready for this, computer troubles). However am I the only one working on a design?

I think my mockup's a good starting point...

Spoken like a true designer! I have a few ideas... I might be able to knock out some roughs/comps.

I updated Fred's post to include the 2006 logo.

Default my quick tshirt idea...just trying to help

Here is a quick idea i had... and its simple enough that the whole family could enjoy wearing. It has the DC location and the redskin colors to add to the DC theme. Just wanted to contribute to the idea.

I havent figured out how to incorporate the "I" into the washington monument... Im stuck on the use of that monument for the "I", i am heading to bed shortly and may just dream up something totally different.

Nice job!
I'm just not sure about the "I"... It looks like "TD Club" and "TD Fest" to me
But nice simple design

i totally agree about the "I" thing... so here it is again with the I in the logo and a different front style... it does look a lot better

Its really not about the "redskins" colors. its about colors that are associated with DC... We can always pick red, white and blue and pretend to be on the 4th of July parade, or in the middle of elections.

Super dark colors will keep everyone nice and toasty during our ultra hot and humid summers here in VA... a lighter color will quickly get dirty from dirty hands that have been opening and closing hoods, or tinkering with stuff.

So that is my reasoning for choosing certain colors over others... all input is welcome... i dont design tshirts or anything i just happen to know this site from doing a unit tshirt once upon a time.

It allows you to load pics and use those images as well...

For those wondering the site is www.customink.com just go there and its very user friendly to get your ideas rolling. I learned last night that they are actually a local company here in VA.

Their address:
7900 Westpark Dr Ste T500
McLean, VA 22102-4234
1-800-293-4232

here is a variation with a different color:

in VW's colors





In "Dusk"

I have to say the third color works well, also I am partial to the typical grey like last year too, however not sure how yellow would look on it

Has there been any discussion of 1-sided vs 2-sided shirts? I would assume 2-sides will increase the cost?
