I know I am posting this late, but since there is time to participate I'll let you all know. Typoshirt is requesting for artists that want to be published in their upcoming book to submit photos of t-shirt designs that focuses purely on typography. The catch is they want images of the physical shirt, so even if you have an awesome type design it has to be printed and for sale. Here is info from their site:
"TypoShirt One is about typography on T-shirts. It is definitely not the first publication that deals with the topic of “T-shirts”, but it’s the first one that focuses exclusively on the typography phenomenon in T-shirt culture. Only shirt motifs created explicitly with typographic means shall be presented in this publication. You can’t find so many examples of extremely expressive and fascinating claims, statements, type-images and “mobile posters” on any other piece of clothing. The transmitted messages gain a non-reversible strength and power through the motifs that are reduced to their substance, related to the form and content.
This book is edited by Florian Gaertner, Lars Harmsen, Ulrich Weiß, MAGMA Brand Design and will be published in 2010 by Index Books in Barcelona. The publication aims at graphic- and fashion-designers, but also at typographers and type designers."
Fee: There is no entry fee.
Type of work: Photography of the physical T-shirt with your own design. We're interested in the application of your design on the T-shirt, not the design files themselves.
File formats: Your presented works should be able to be reproduced at large format. Please provide highres file formats (jpg, 300 dpi, min. 800x1200px up to max. 2400x3500px). Work's original format – no cropping marks, etc. Color mode RGB. The editor will not accept responsibility for color-matching or additional color-correction of digital files.
File naming convention: When naming your files, please adhere to the following convention: YourName_01.jpg
