Happy Friday Elio’ers! This week’s Friday Blog is going to be short, sweet, to the point, and full of pretty pictures. A couple of weeks ago we introduced a t-shirt contest. Basically, we asked anyone interested to send in their best idea for the next t-shirt. Our supporters, no surprise, came through in a big way! Some of the responses were just basic ideas and others took quite a bit of time and showed off their design skills. We sincerely appreciate everyone who participated. It was an agonizing process for the Elio staff to get to the final five.
Here are the rules. Below, we will show you the final five and everyone will get one vote- multiple votes will be deleted. It’s pretty simple- the shirt with the most votes will be revealed as the winner. In the event of a tie, the Elio staff will make a final decision. Each design is awesome, so we expect a close race! Note, we have made some minor changes to a few entries as some contributors had the great idea but not the tools to make it right, so we helped out! Additionally, we may alter the final design slightly to stay within brand guidelines and add graphics to the back of the shirts as well.
Our first entry comes from Jeffrey. If you’ve ever sat in an Elio, you know that our configuration allows the driver to put their arms out of both windows to give an “Elio Wave”:
Up second, sent in by Angela, is a really eye-catching watercolor style.
The third entry is unique in that we had two supporters come up with basically the same idea. Both Everett and Robert had the great idea of fitting the Elio’s body style to a t-shirt. If this design happens to win, we’ll have two winners.
Next is Don’s entry which is simple, clean, and clever. The math may not add up, but we thoroughly agree with the sentiment.
The final entry comes to us from Adam. His entry is vivid, modern, and quite frankly just plain cool.
So there you have it. As you can see, it’s not going to be easy to pick a favorite. Remember, it’s one vote per person. The poles will close on Friday morning at 10 AM Central.
Thanks for your support and have a fantastic weekend!
