Got a design or idea?

Designer

(Submit a design)

1. Create and Submit

Do you think your t-shirt design is ready to be unleashed upon the world? Is it good enough to be proudly sported by the masses of humanity? Here's what you do:

  • Get started using a vector art or raster image program to create your design (trusty Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop are recommended).
  • When your masterpiece is finished, make sure it conforms to our rules, then transfer it on to our templates (you can use your own if you like), fill out the upload form, and submit.
  • Got other ideas? Think, design, repeat.

2. Grading

Once it's approved for grading, your design will step into the Steel Cage of Death where it will face off against the College District's community of fans and designers who will grade and comment upon your design for a period up to 14 days. If it's still standing and has generated what College District deems to be positive feedback, it will become a College District product. Your mother will be so proud.

3. Get Paid

Yes, for designs chosen to be printed College District will make it rain. You'll receive:

  • Up to $5,000 cash. Read here to get the deets.
  • 5,000 points redeemable for merchandise on College District.
  • Superior status on our designer leaderboard.
  • The ability to annoy your friends on gameday as you continuously point out all of the people wearing your amazing design.

1. Submit

So, you have a clever idea, but you lack the design skills to bring it to life? Hey, we've still got love for you. There are several ways to submit your idea such as text only, text and reference imagery, and image only. However, like an offensive lineman, it doesn't need to be pretty, but it's gotta' work. If your idea's great and we think it has potential, we'll turn it over to one of our talented staff designers who will bring it to life and submit it for grading. (Both you and our designer will be credited for the submission).

A Final Thought: Just remember, the worse you are at designing, the better you need to be at explaining.

2. Grading

Once your idea has been turned into a design and submitted for grading, it will walk the red carpet to be judged by the keen eyes of the College District community who will play the role of the fashion police. Tough, but fair, this group will grade and comment on your idea for a period of 14 days. Yes, it will seem like an eternity, but you can handle it.

After the grading period we will review the community feedback. Overall negativity means, "We're all winners here... but today's just not your day." Overwhelming positive feedback, and we're notifying you that your design will become the next College District product.

And the crowd goes wild!
