T-Shirt Design Competition

Do you have what it takes to design the hottest item in every science students’ closet? The SciSoc shirt is a symbol, an icon, a single item of clothing that distinguishes us from the rest of this University!

… It can also get you a free lunch every odd Wednesday.

So whip out those tag lines, those one-liners and those comments that can make you simultaneously laugh and cringe. Dust off your favourite lame science joke, draw a picture to go with it or even a scientific formula and you’re done! Send it in to our exec and before you know it, everyone could very well be wearing your designs!

Design Guidelines

  1. The front of the T-shirt should feature the main artwork with a punchy tagline
  2. The back of the T-shirt should display SciSoc and sponsor logos and can feature more artwork
    – SciSoc & USU logos can be found here
  3. Feel free to experiment with different colours but keep in mind that SciSoc’s colours are blue and yellow
    – This years shirt will only be available in ONE colour, however
  4. The design must be able to fit on an A4 sized sheet of paper

A word from the VP

Hey everyone! Just a quick e-introduction from me, Bashar Alani. As the Vice President of the 107th SciSoc committee I can tell you that we have some great plans for the upcoming year, but it’s all pointless unless you know about it! So keep your eyes on these newsletters, your ears open and your nose in the Aqua Regia! I look forward to getting to know you all better in the months to come 🙂
