    These designs are just ideas, not finalized, and they can go either on the back or on the front of the shirt.

    My school is called Westmoor High School, our mascot is the Ram, our colors our Green and Yellow. This is for Class of '11, so our color is Green (yellow is sophomores).


    Any constructive criticism?

    There isn't enough contrast between the shirt color and the green. You are either going to need to use a lighter green, or more likely, a different colored shirt.

    or

    you will need to put down a layer of white ink first before the green is printed otherwise the black shirt will suck the color out of it entirely.

    agree green does need to be lighter or switch to a charcoal color shirt.

    1 and 2 from the top left over have the strongest designs. Like others have noted, you need to do something with the colors to bring the contrast up. What are the school colors? Green and white? If so, maybe a grey shirt.

    is the ram logo you're using on the shirts your school's official logo? cuz, i'm not sure what kinds of copyright issues might be wrapped up with your design....it's the Dodge Ram logo, right? it'll probably be fine, but you might want to double-check with an expert just to be safe. (i once started doing a t-shirt for a non-prof group, and they wanted to use the super bowl/chicago bears graphics....but after they selected a design, they found out they couldn't use it because of certain copyright restrictions. so i had to redesign an entirely different shirt for them)

    but barring those concerns, i like the first idea (top left corner). also, just a thought, but have you considered how big the design is compared to the shirt? it seems really big to me. the top row, second from left design has a better design to shirt ratio to me.

    imho, i wouldn't use the graphic you have with just the horns of the ram....if i didn't see the other images preceding it, i wouldn't know what they were.

    Oh ok, I was told that they would print on a black shirt, so I'll definitely lighten the green.

    Thanks! Will lighten the green, but I won't be the one printing.

    Thanks! That's what my friends said too. Green and Yellow, but my class president said to use Green and White.

    Yeah they're just concepts and I just got these images from google. If my designs get chosen then I'll definitely redo them to avoid copyright issues if there are any.

    I turned in my design with the first shirt as the front, with the second shirt as the back. Wish me luck!

    Clickable.

    Still have to lighten the greens and everything tho.
