T-shirts/swag ideas
« on: March 07, 2014, 04:17:02 AM »

Positive time!

I think the last iteration swag doesn't appeal to the types of people you would find at bitcoin conferences. In a recent conversation, another forumite gave these characteristics:

Quote
-95%+ predominantly male
-higher education than average
-at the very least they already know about bitcoin and probably have general idea of the implications of blockchain technologies and decentralized systems
-have philosophical and political views that align more with libertarian and anarchist perspectives
-more than likely have a monetary incentive; or some variation of self-interest

My opinion is that you need a clean, simple t-shirt design with a company or product logo and your favorite from among these:

* Decentralize Everything
* Decentralized Solutions to Centralized Problems
* BitShares X: Decentralized Bank and Exchange
* BitShares ___: _______
* Life, Liberty, Property
* Reimagine Everything, with some visual aid to tell you what kind of things to reimagine
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Thanks!  Now THAT's what constitutes a constructive comment!

I asked in another post, but can we get a folder or download somewhere of all of the logo vectors?

Can you snag them off the web site for concept purposes until Brian get's back from the conference?

Maybe in the future have a page on the site were we could copy approved Invictus images.

Good idea.  I'll mention it to the web team.

Thanks.  That was Brian's work too.

Can't find that aggressive 'firing' post any more so I post here.

Strongly disagree with that insane idea but the marketing guys should really pay more attention to the crypto communities , not only here but also bitcointalk & reddit and so on. Daniel should focus more on coding since he is the only guy involved in that part. Free him.

 +5% agreed, you don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Voicing disapproval of a t-hirst design is healthy, public lynching is NOT

but the marketing guys should really pay more attention to the crypto communities , not only here but also bitcointalk & reddit and so on.

+5% agreed, broad reaching projects of this magnitude by their vary nature are social. Network effect is 9 tenths of the battle.


Daniel should focus more on coding since he is the only guy involved in that part. Free him.

+5% Dan, should never be the only Guy coding. His vision and manic energy must serve as a catalyst for the development community not the fuel. WE DAC devs are the fuel, Invictus the spark plugs, Dan the distributer and Social consensus the driver.

Agreed! 

However, I personally find **Reimagine Everything** slightly... confusing.  It's an absolutely correct statement, but I think the context may be a bit too broad - especially for someone unfamiliar with the mechanics of BitShares and the implications of its potential.

Perhaps drilling down a little more specific, while still being broad:

"What economics should be."
