My school had a t-shirt design contest for the RA (Resident Assistant) t-shirts for the staff to wear on move in day this fall. The theme of this year is Harry Potter. I decided to mix RISD ideas and Harry Potter ideas since going to RISD sometimes feels like a magical world. Here is my entry for the contest.
This is the front design I made.
It is based off of the Hogwarts crest, but with the symbols that represent the four areas of the freshman quad: the Homer shield, the Nickerson narwhal, the South squirrel, and the East beast.
This is the back design I made.
My friend suggested something really bold so I decided to fill in a lightning bolt with imagery. I chose Carr Haus (our student run café that also has important school offices) on top of college hill, which sometimes feels like a cliff. I added an owl because receiving the acceptance letter to RISD was magical (which is what I think it would feel like to be accepted into Hogwarts).
Below are the ideas I submitted for placement and color choices.
I hope they pick my design! I worked really hard on it!
