Hi Everyone:   ;D

Betcha thought there was going to be a design submission didn't ya?  NOPE!  Not from me.  I've got NO artistic talent whatsoever.

I just hope that this project doesn't die.  I loved the t-shirt last year and it also raised some money for the Grants Committee.  So I'd encourage everyone who has already indicated they were thinking of putting something together, John, Jan, Ann, Dingo, and BeefBud. to not be shy.  In addition, surely these forums have got a lot of talented individuals who could help with design ideas too.

Just two weeks till the deadline--so let's see those ideas folks!

obviously no one cares... What do they think these shirts are going to magically design themselves??

Maybe we should have nightsweats and tcells design them. they are after all in the screen printing business.

To be honest, with all the stuff that's gone on in my life since January, I forgot all about the T-shirt contest. I'll start doodling and see if I can come up with anything.

Thanks for the reminder!

I have NO artistic talent but I thought of a design that includes the Golden Gate Bridge, perhaps the greatest symbol of San Francisco with a candle behind it as a bridge represents a crossing of course, and the candle is such a major symbol of living with HIV.

Here's another entry for the contest. ;D

Not a candle, but the sun (which is bright, too). Some people moving, leaping, progressing in the same direction. And the bridge of course, as was wished for. Three colours: red, yellow and black. This picture was made with Photoshop CS, so it might need vectorization but I'm not a pro and I don't know how to achieve this. Same with bleeding colours: There might be some at the edges. The PSD file is much bigger and available, in case someone wants or needs to work with it. The font used is a free font called Stone Sans ITC TT, but ordinary Tahoma gives you a similar result. Hope you like it!  :D

Hi KC

I think your design is great, it would be nice if we could keep the AMG logo going on our T-shirts.

Just one thing, last year was our "circle of light" and this year it will be held in the memorial gardens, is there any chance we could replace the Flame for a simple flower, as I said the AMG logo is perfect I just though a little something different  that would fit in with our surroundings would be nice....what do you think?

I wanna thank everyone who submitted their design ideas for this years AMG t-shirt.  There's still time for any last minute entries or design changes.

Originally, the designs were going to be submitted to Nightsweats for them to decide the best design.  I thought this was a good decision and would prevent and sense of favoritism.  However, I'm re-thinking this. 

So...I'd like the groups feedback regarding this.  Should Nightsweats decide this years design or should there be a group vote here within the forums?  Regardless, those who submitted a design will receive a free t-shirt. 

I'd also like to request assistance with handeling t-shirt orders.  This would entail tracking the number and size of t-shirts ordered per member along with collecting monies, possibly via a paypal account.  If anyone is interested please pm me or post below.

AMGCr:

Personally, I think Nightsweats is the way to go. 

We've been given 3 great choices, each with it's own unique qualities.  Whatever design ends up on the shirt isn't as important to me as the message it sends.

For me that message is: we aren't  going to San Francisco  as a group of strangers.  We are going as a group of HIV+ individuals who have come together in these forums and attempted to provide support and courage for one another. 

Don't matter age, don't matter gender, don't matter much of anything.  We are who we are.  We are HIV + and this year we are gathering in San Francisco.

I have a design concept ... no worries if it's too late.. I will work on it tomorrow for a presentable version.  I'm not attending either, so I have no vested interest.

What I would suggest to the voting is submitting for BOTH a vote here and a vote by the printer. 

Then having a final vote here to determine the winner.

This would allow the printer input into what they think is a good design and why and also possibly present technical difficulties in certain designs as not being suitable for printing.

It would also allow those here to vote for the one the like best.

Then either the design can be adjusted to meet the printing requirement or another can be chosen.

Hi Jeffrey,

The design for this years t-shirt has already been chosen and details are currently being finalized with the printer.  Please feel free to post your design though.  I'm trying, with a little creativity, to make use of all design submissions.

Further details on how to order this years shirt will be posted in the very near future.

John,

Been out of sorts for some time.  I love your design.  Don't know if it has been chosen, but it keeps a strong image alive.

Have to admit that Thom and I miss you and Trish as part of our friends circle.  Time will tell if the wounds we inflicted upon each others can ever be healed.

I am offering the first hand.  It is yours to take or to ignore.  If we didn't love you both we would never have asked you to be apart of our wedding in Montreal.

We still love you both, R&T

Dear Ric & Thom,

We’ve all been guilty of saying some horrible things to one another, and I’d like nothing more than to be able to put it all behind us and move on.  I may have been angry, confused and hurt in the past, which lead me to lash out, but my feelings for you & Thom, as well as everyone here at AM haven’t changed.  I do love you guys.  I just hope we can all move forward… I’m certainly willing, and able, to do so and I hope others can do the same.  I’ve missed everyone and would very much like to have all of you be a part of my life again. 

In closing… Yes, I do accept your hand in the name of friendship, love and peace.

With respect & love,

Trish

Edited to add:  Had I not felt love for you, as well as a bond with both of you, I never would have been a part of your wedding.  I was proud to stand beside both of you, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
