So I designed this shirt off of one of my photos from last week let me know what you guys think. I'm still tweeking it a little but it will eventually be up and then set up so that 100% goes to HOW. If I set the goal at 50 shirts and it hits that goal it would be almost $500 for HOW + it can always sell above the goal before the time is up.

I do like the shirt.

The font cheapens it a bit. Not sure it's the best choice. The straight top edge doesn't play well with the bottom of the image/yak.

Otherwise...bad ass indeed.

Are you thinking the font or the fact that its strait? I can add a little curve to it. I see where you are talking about and now that you said it notice it too.

Both?  I think the font, itself, has an iron-on quality to it.  Like the letters we'd buy for out 3rd grade baseball tee-shirts. maybe curving it would help?  Not sure.  The angular and linear forms just contrast with the jagged edges of the image.

Then again, I'm no graphic designer!

No the writing was the last thing I did, and now I don't like it. That's why I asked for a little feedback. You look at something for a couple hours and you miss things.

I find it strange to have the image of the kayaker's back on the FRONT of the shirt.  It's like this image should either be on the back of the shirt or the image should be facing forward.

Now that you mention it ... +1.

I think it looks great but also agree that it should be on the back.

Agreed. I don't like the font, but I like the overall idea. Also it's fairly difficult to tell from first glance what the yellow blob is under his but. Maybe try to add a little more detail (without killing the style) to let the viewer know it's a kayak or something rigid. Maybe some faint shading, create an angled kayak blade, or a hint of water could help.

Putting the graphic on the back of the shirt is also a good idea.
My wife thinks fishing is merely guys wandering around like idiots swinging sticks in the air. Many of my trips prove how smart she really is.

Maybe it could have back image on the back and a front image on the front.

I could but going through this site I have to hit a goal to get the shirts printed. If I did a female graphic I would have to hit a goal for that design. I can have this one come on a women's fit shirt also.
