These shirts will be a part of a new project where iMasons will launch a “tour” of data centers (both domestic and abroad). The iMasons Apprentice Tour will provide an opportunity for students (usually in the 9th-10th grade) to learn more about the data center industry, why it’s “cool”, and consider data centers as a potential career path. Ideally this will attract millennial’s and Generation Z into this industry. The tour will be comprised of different data centers and local students. These t-shirts will be going to high school and college aged students from different backgrounds, demographics, and countries.
We are looking to focus on the “tour” aspect of this project and want the shirts to reflect a rock concert tour t-shirt sort of vibe. Looking for a “cool factor”. Ideally these would be shirts students would want to wear when they return to school. We’re hoping the shirts are something to brag about, something to make them feel special. We are envisioning something that would also incorporate digital technology (think binary graphics, etc) and maybe even a secret society type vibe.
Data centers are where everything cool that you see on your phone or tablet happens. It’s where Siri lives, where Pokemon are born, where Candy Crush characters go when they’re on break, Game of War generals launch their attacks, Facebook likes, Snapchat filters, Hulu streams, emojis, stickers, EVERYTHING happens inside these monstrous computer farms. Each one of these buildings uses as much electricity as a small city, and exist in places like Sweden, Iceland, China, Seattle, San Jose, New York, Texas, Virginia, everywhere!
We are looking for a shirt printed on both sides, preferably some sort of graphic/text on the front and this tour location (Dallas, Texas) on the back. Somewhere on the shirt should be “iMasons Apprentice Tour”. We want the iMasons logo (attached) incorporated in some way as well as the website address (http://www.iMasons.org). We also want space to add a sponsor logo, either on a sleeve or on the back.
Open to really creative options or outside of the box ideas. Some examples of logo treatments we’ve done in the past are included below.
This design may also be used for other swag, so a design that could easily be incorporated for other pieces would be ideal. For reference it may be used in a design that is 8.75”W x 3”H with a 1/8” bleed.
Infrastructure Masons (iMasons) was established to provide infrastructure executives and technical professionals an independent forum to connect, grow and give back. iMasons believes that by bringing these professionals together they can focus their combined experience and expertise to advance the industry, develop their fellow masons, and empower business and personal use of the infrastructure to better the economy, the environment, and society.
