Recently, I discovered Zazzle, an online apparel & merchandise store that allows you to order and sell custom products you design. And, like any excited father-to-be, I could barely contain my delight after finding the section for custom baby shirts and onesies. I’m not much of a graphic designer but I am very much a computer nerd. The idea that I can create clothes for my kid, over the Web, is right up my alley. I could not pass this up.
Off I went. Clicking and typing, dragging and dropping, searching for clip art, uploading images, choosing fonts, resizing and repositioning. I mastered the interface before deciding exactly what the 6-12 month, organic onesie I was bent on creating would say. But, there was no turning back. After tossing around some ideas, in a flash of pure geekdom, I knew what I wanted the shirt to say and how I wanted the message conveyed.
Rather than tell you the punch line, I decided I would invite the rest of you nerds to decipher for yourselves. Below is an image of the front and back of the actual one-of-a-kind (for now) onesie which arrived earlier today. Like my previous “A pictures is worth 300 albums” contest, the first person to leave a comment correctly describing the front & back will win a fun prize.
This contest will run for a week or until we have a winner, whichever occurs first.
