Negative Feedback T-Shirt Design Contest
« on: April 25, 2013, 09:00:17 am »
I'm running a trial contest on 99 designs to see if someone can design a new Negative Feedback circuit I want to put on TeeSpring.
Check it out. I don't think anyone but me can vote though, but comments are welcome on here.

I think #4 are #5 are best out of the bunch so far.
I don't like the ones that just changed the font a bit and the colour, I could have done that myself.

Seriously though, EE's will get it and for everyone else multiple colours for emphasis, or aesthetic reasons will not help.
Keep the design simple. It works best when it just divides the world into those who get it and everyone else.

Of course. Muggles aren't meant to get it. Although I have had muggles tell me they like the slogan, even though they didn't get the circuit.
I wanted to see if anyone could come up with some creative flair of some sort, we'll see. Otherwise I've done my dough.

The original works as is. Anything else is just adding cheap makeup.
Start right now.

Yeah, I haven't seen any I like better than the original.

Give Sagan some crayons, get him to copy the original and then past Ken Done's signature on it :)

One possible enhancement, capture the smell of 'magic smoke' and add a
'scratch and sniff' element to the T shirt.

More designs are up, but still nothing that takes my fancy.
I was hoping for some magic like we got with the Amp Hour T-Shirt.

I think we have reached the limit with a static representation of the circuit. Would be nice if some animated graphics could be added.
Start right now.

I was expecting someone to warp it, add some perspective, or at least do something with it. Although I'm not offering much money here, so they will do as little work as possible I guess and hope they get lucky?

These two could be combined. Embedded electronics? Wash and sniff?  ;)

I like it. I think it needs one tweak, though - make "I only give negative feedback" stand out somehow from the schematic labels. My tired eyes started to read "I only give Vout"...

Yes, that's what I first saw too.
I think the PCB traces and background colour are too distracting, and the font hard to read, but the concept work I think.

Yes, until now the original one has my vote.
Stylized, clear and beautiful.

I like #6, clean and clear, like what you'd want to see on a board

(with maybe a slight color change, for educational purposes, highlighting the negative feedback)

i vote for this one as well !

like the pcb pattern. nice touch. shows the designer knows a bit about electronics. The others are just 'font work'...

MrDunne #16 !!! has my vote. and it would look great on black or white background !

#18 .. the font for 'feedback' is just ... plain wrong.. that's a font for a football or baseball team...

I agree.
And if it must be changed no 6 may be ok.

How about "I only give" and the circuit in place of the words "negative feedback".

Or, similarly: "I only give..." and then the formula.
