I'm doing the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition t-shirt design again this year. This is the first one I came up with after my photo-taking trip at SAF Yacht Club.
Then I got instructions to go in a more abstract direction. So I based my typography on the elements in a simplified geometrical version of a yacht.
Then I got feedback that it was too confusing and illegible. So I limited the typography to the main text.
Final version with mock logos
Final version sent to the t-shirt printers. It looks kinda nice in a non-nautical colour scheme too.
