Congrats on the win Gar0!

Congrats Garo! This looks even better now that I see it on the tee, very well-deserved win.

I'm confused, I didn't take part and I only scored a few, but the ones I did score I thought were more deserving of the win. Maybe I'm stupid, but most of it looks like random geometric shapes to me, the middle looks like a meal in a pot over an open fire, the bottom like somebody riding a bobsled.

Congrats on the well deserved win!

I'm sure Disney has plenty of shirts with glow in the dark light cycles for all who don't get it.

This won? .... Really?

Congrats on that tee!!! It was my favourite submission in the whole contest and I will buy this allthough I'm not actually a tron-fan!!

j1supernova on Nov 23, 2010 at 09:29:26

it's a nice design, just not very Tron. i would have expected some glow in the dark elements. but oh, well.

Is it just me, or is a "creme" colored shirt absolutely wrong for Tron? I love the design, but won't buy it simply because how awful the shirt color is. Sorry. Print it in black, or even something not white-ish and I'll buy two.

Very nice design! Congrats on the win!

Congrats! But sour...

Cheers for those supporting this one. It's often a contentious issue picking a winner for the loves contest so I feel for Threadless and Disney here. They're damned if they do, damned if they don't.

What I will say in defense of my design is that as a Tron fan I always loved it's originality. The spirit of my design is embedded in that. I didn't want to just copy a still from the trailers of the new one I wanted to create a graphic that people who didn't know Tron could engage with. I know I achieved that by the fact it was picked and many people who don't understand the fuss about the film have accepted this as the winner.

And finally, to me, one of the essential tenets of design is that it should encourage debate. And you can't have a debate if everyone agrees on one argument.

congrats Garo!!! really such a great print!

Congratulations Gar0! Great design!

Artsneef on Nov 22, 2010 at 23:25:25

I'm a big TRON fan and this design does nothing for me... It's uninspired and bland. The colours are muted, the image itself is flat and there's such a mix match of references that don't make sense. There's the Sark/MCP mix and the Recognizer from the original, and then there's the new Lightcycle from Legacy? On top of it all the title is "2010." Boo.

Congratulation on the win, but definitely not going to buy this one...
