reimagine everything

I guess the dilemma for me is, how do we pick something that's general and yet descriptive for Bitshares? I would proudly wear a shirt with "Reimagine Everything" or "The Revolution Will Not Be Centralized," even though I know I would have to stop and explain it to everyone who asks. Those describe the dream, but not necessarily the practical focus. If the slogan specifically mentions finances or music or privacy, etc., then I think that's a lot less abstract and it might grab more peoples' attention. I favor something concrete rather than abstract.

But as I said, I'll wear any of those shirts. When the DACs come out, I'd like to have a whole drawer-full of shirts with the retail names of those businesses on them (e.g., whatever Bitshares Music's trade name will be).

Personally I think "reimagine everything" is super bland and unimaginative

reminds me of zombo.com

The phrase about revolution does not have mass appeal due to the (very human) fear of change.  Why not choose something more people friendly that might catch on with the masses?

Maybe it would be more palatable to the constituency you refer to if we combine the two phrases in one logo:

Reimagine Everything: The Revolution Will Not Be Centralized!

This "The Revolution Will Not Be Centralized" tee was my favorite creation.

 +5%

 +5% +5% I agree. It IS the one.
All in favor say, "lets get us some t-shirts!"
Lets get us some fkn t-shirts!

We should re-work the design to make it a bit cleaner / more wearable in real life. Where's Cass?!

This "The Revolution Will Not Be Centralized" tee was my favorite creation.  I didn't make one with "Reimagine Everything" yet but we could. 

But I'm open to completely new ideas if you all would like to create one that's got a different slogan or image.  If we have a clear design winner, I have a place that can print them up at a decent price.

Now how to get them to everyone on the forum who may want one (all over the world)....

"Decentralize the revolution "
"BitShares X : Reimagine the revolution"

Or you could go for a humor factor

"DAC's make my nodes warm"

* Decentralized Solutions to Centralized Problems
* BitShares X: Decentralized Bank and Exchange
* The Revolution Will Not Be Centralized.

I think these are solid. How do we begin designing T-shirts? I was thinking, there are a billion bitcoin events, big and small, this summer; there should be a way for Bitshares fans to get, buy or win T-shirts with a Bitshares theme.
