sgmartin got their new merchandise by running a design contest:
Think or Perish needs a new merchandise design
Check out sgmartin's Merchandise contest…
Congratulations on deciding to consider this project. This will be one of the more exciting jobs you have done, and we are confident that it will be one that you are proud of. If you are a techie, who loves computers and mobile devices, the simple pleasures of life as well as the complex, technology-driven world we live in; if you pride yourself on being a "thinker," someone who strategizes about life, love, and the pursuit of your own dreams; We are creating clothes and other merchandise for you. Join along with us in this creative adventure, and we'll have some fun while we design awesome stuff.
What's your vision?
We want assistance in designing the first graphic for t-shirts and other merchandise, for a new apparel/merchandise company. The graphic should have a logo feel, and may or may not be used to represent the company as a whole. The brand name of our merchandise is - Think or Perish. Please use a trademark symbol (™). No other words, other than - Think or Perish, should be included in the graphic. The look and feel we are looking for is "Life is Good meets the Genius Bar." Or "Life is Good meets the Big Bang Theory TV Show." We are looking for something very simple, with very few colors, and simple lines. We need something smart, catchy, and witty. To envision the style, imagine something that a young techie in their 20s to 40s might wear, to represent that they are young, hip, simple, smart, irreverent, a bit sarcastic, and a thinker. The graphic will be put on t-shirts, mugs, wristbands, and other merchandise, along with the website and print materials. All artwork must be original work, and should be high enough quality to be used for screen print and print. No clip-art. I have attached images that we like for both Life is Good and the Genius Bar, as inspiration. We await your designs (No really, we are literally sitting here waiting for them).

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their merchandise.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
sgmartin collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
