And the Winner of “Black & Gold 2016″ is…
Congratulations to Matt Phelan, who won our “Black & Gold 2016″ tee shirt design contest with a nod to a cheesy ’80′s anthem. Nothing cheesy about his amazing artwork though. This is Matt’s 3rd win in a row, and his eighth Top 5 finish overall.
Second place goes to James Michael Cox, who is the creator of our popular “Mid-City (Bicycle)” tee. We loved the fun detail of James Michael’s “Game Day” design.
Third place goes to Christy Gonzalez for her retro-chic “Old School Favorite” design. This is Christy’s thirteenth Top 5 finish.
Phillip Trammel put forth an iconic looking design with “BG 16.” This is Phillip’s fourth Top 5 finish. Fifth place goes to Christopher Murphy with “Kings of the Southern Division.” We simply love Christopher’s artwork and he has previously won two of our contests. This is Christopher’s sixth Top 5 finish. Finally, newcomer Peter Woodward earned an “Honorable Mention” for his in-your-face “Black & Gold Fan Face” submission.
This contest stretched out a little longer than we had originally planned, but now is as good a time as any for some fresh Black & Gold designs. Thanks to everyone who entered. We’re looking to get some more designs outside of our contests, so if you have a great design ready to go, e-mail josh @ storyvilleapparel.com. We’ll be back with a new contest soon.
