Note: Firstly, please, see the attached brief in the PDF - I've added some images as a reference there. Also, I'm happy to pick more than one winner if the designs will be good.
Create a t-shirt with “Refactor” copy on it.
What is refactoring? Small, incremental changes that leave the code in a better state than it was found. In other words, improving existing code.
Other definition: The act of wasting a bunch of time rewriting old source code in an attempt to make it understandable, usable, and expandable.
Probably every developer is refactoring code, it’s part of maintenance and also as developer is improving his skills, some of an old code might seem obsolete and need refactoring.
Idea #1 - Rock’n’roll hand
> Option 1:
The idea is to mimic the rock’n’roll shirts with rock’n’roll hand (~ heavy metal horn sign).
The execution/illustration shouldn’t be too hard, it should be clear this is meant to be a joke and it shouldn’t be taken too serious.
Feeling: hipsters, rock’n’roll bands, drugs, wild life
Colours: black and white only
> Option 2:
Rock’n’roll hand + copy with “Sex, Drugs & Refactor”
Idea #2 - 80s logo
The “Refactor” should be done in 80s logo styles (reference http://144.wtf/Qe3DUA)
Tron is really close to the idea in terms of design & colours.
Copy can be extended to “Rise and Refactor” as a parody to “Rise and Shine” where “Rise and” is small.
I came up with 2 ideas - it's up to you which one you chose or it can be even something else if you come with something good :)
