jvickery got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Trustwave SpiderLabs T-Shirt
Check out jvickery's T-shirt contest…
edgy, techy, smart, hackery, on-trend We need to design a really cool, techy t-shirt for our elite team of ethical hackers. It will be distributed at Black Hat USA, an annual data security event in Las Vegas (our shirts at that show are always the most popular) as well as handed out to each member on the SpiderLabs team. The shirt may be used for other promotional items for our SpiderLabs team.
These shirts have always had a comic-book/sci-fi/hacker/geeky (used in a good way) feel to them. They have always been printed on black tshirts though one year we did them on grey, navy and orange shirts. The design can be on the front or back of the shirt - no wrap around designs (too expensive to print) For all the concepts, the words ‘SpiderLabs’ and ‘Trustwave' must be incorporated. can be on front, back, arm, yoke or waist hem of the shirt. It would be nice to depict both males and females (spiders, hackers, heros, robots, etc.) in the designs if applicable. WHAT SPIDERLABS IS: Businesses worldwide depend on the global SpiderLabs team at Trustwave to keep them ahead of the latest security threats. Our security breach investigations, malware reverse-engineering projects, millions of scans, thousands of penetration tests, leadership of open-source security projects and contributions to the security community have established Trustwave SpiderLabs as world-renowned experts on the past, present and future of security. The SpiderLabs team at Trustwave includes security and penetration testers, incident responders, forensic investigators, malware reversers, security researchers, published authors and sought-after speakers. TARGET AUDIENCE: ethical hackers males and females all ranging from ages 23-45 nerdy (in a good way) very technical
What to avoid
Please stay away from hostage scenes, cliché hacker and security imagery, pad locks, swear words and violence. We’d like to see original designs rather than spider images arranged in photoshop and no copycat treatments (e.g Tron, Matrix etc.) Please stay away from pastels.

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.
