Those that change font color are difficult to read.

 #19 has good slogan visibility but should maybe be scaled down a little

 #37 and #18 have a nice circuit picture, but their slogan is "I only give"

 #16 is a nice concept, highlighting the feedback resistor makes it look too smeared though

 #34 is nice and subtle. Now, plain white letters please!

I like #31 a lot. The larger graphics are going to look better after the shirt is all faded and crusty. Higher signal to noise ratio.
Start right now.

Only #1 grabbed me. Not the yellow on white though.

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.
Seconded. #1 is the only one I'd pay $$ for.

a) it looks like a traffic warning sign
b) the text is "negative", i.e., the absence of color
c) the schematic is readable and recognizable by those who will get the joke
d) a single color design is cheaper to produce

Flashy colors and "creative" fonts will make the shirt appeal more to those that don't get it.

If you really want to go there, you might as well put kittens on the EEVBlog logo.  :palm:

I really like #47 the best now, the guy who did has won half a dozen contests, and I think it shows.

I've selected 8 shirts I think are the front runners from 8 different designers, please vote in the poll!
http://99designs.com.au/t-shirt-design/vote-6jwmyc
Only 9 hours left till I have to chose the finalists, then ultimately one winner.
The crowd sourced tshirt campaign will only allow one design though.

I'd pick #34 of the latest  front-runner's group.

In line with the NEGATIVE theme, you could add some 'sarcastic humour' to the back,

like
        'glad to see you'

I'm not a fan of having stuff on the back of shirts.

Early polling puts #34 out in front.
Probably not surprising given that it's similar to my existing design in terms on size, placement, colour, usage etc.
I'd get him to redo it with my hand drawn circuit though.

Yeah, but #1 has *more* ratings! (at the moment)

Yes, but 8 of those are 1 star!
 #34 has the least 1 star ratings.

I guess those eight people really do only give negative feedback.  ;D You can only vote once, right?

47 and 37 are fairly similar, I bet that is having an effect

I'm into #6, #41, #46, and a few other simple ones. Not so into the crazy wacked out graphics type designs for this application.

#51-53 Dude can't even spell "negative" right. ::)
I think #47 is going to win. I'd buy it.

There are a number that are equally good but if I was buying one it would be no.47 it just grabs the eye the most.

I don't think #1 and #34 would be improved with your hand drawn design. They have a very geometric rectilinear "vibe" that appeals. Well, too me anyway.

But then that takes away my little personal touch  :'(

Quote
However, I think #47  might have issues with different shirt sizes. I assume there is a single size design which is applied to different sized shirts, so a large shirt (me unfortunately) might not look quite as good as the design completely filling a small shirt.

Good question. I don't know if they scale the design slightly for different size shirts. I would have thought so  :-//

Quote
It is those traces running off to the periphery and the Vout running all the way up to the sleeve.

Yes, I would get the design smaller so Vout doesn't run off the side.

Quote
I slightly prefer #47 to #37 but think #37 is a better fitting design for a shirtfront. Is it more costly to have more colours?

I don't think so, will have to check.

Quote
In any case I am amazed at how well this process has seemed to work. Perhaps that is partly because designs I like have filtered up. I wish I could pick horses in the Melbourne Cup as well.  ;)

I was sceptical at first too as some very ordinary designs rolled in, but now I'd be happy with at least 3 of them almost as-is.
The alternative was to try the woman who did our Amp Hour t-shirt. But that was a one-shot deal, so I liked the idea of getting many different ones to pick from.

The 1st round is coming to an end I'll have to pick some designs to send though to the next round.
I'll also need to tell them about any tweaks or alternatives that I want.
Based on the votes I think I'll put through:
 #34 http://99designs.com.au/t-shirt-design/contests/electronics-themed-t-shirt-design-revamp-required-213145/entries/34
 #37 http://99designs.com.au/t-shirt-design/contests/electronics-themed-t-shirt-design-revamp-required-213145/entries/37
 #47 http://99designs.com.au/t-shirt-design/contests/electronics-themed-t-shirt-design-revamp-required-213145/entries/47

For #34 I think I'll ask for replacement of my hand drawn circuit. All white text, and all orange text variants (with opposite colour circuit)
 #47 just needs to be a bit smaller
 #37 smaller I Only Give text, and bigger Negative Feedback text so it stands out more. Perhaps even orange text to stand out?

Is my assessment there right?
Comments?

Will have another poll on the final round.

As I wrote, I like the original most.
But if I've to choose, I'll take #34

I have no definite opinion about either design, but I wonder if the slogan has to be fixed?
Maybe something along the lines of "I can't give positive feedback" or "I never give positive feedback"?
Or to make it very clear: "I shall never give positive feedback!"

I like #37 but agree that smaller "I Only Give" text would improve it
