“In a world full of armchair experts, don’t be caught sitting down.”
As in, stop it with the theory, and theoretical questions, page links and equations. Just get up and prove it. We are here (these forums) because we like to make stuff and get dirty, or act least act like we do. Experience, failure/success, effort, proof, is worth so much more than words.
Yes, no? Phrase it differently? Armchair engineers?
Good font or layout suggestions? I was thinking typewriter font, or the font from the logo.
I dont think you should have similar sentences on the front and back.
“In a world of armchair experts, I stand with [V1 logo]”
That seems like a winner to me. Needs typesetting, but you do a good job with that.
Nevermind the anti-narcissistic insecurities. This is for people who want to wear your shirts, so we have already had the kool-aid. Also, it’s not “I stand with allted” (although I would buy that too). V1 includes the community, whether you like it or not (but not the FB page :D).
Now the question is, is that on the front, with something like you outline drawing on the back? Or is that on the back with a professional logo over the pocket?
I definitely want to wear one of these shirts, but I also want other people to read the shirt and know what’s going on. “I Stand with V1” is all well and good, but if you’re not a member of this community, I worry it would be confusing. I would prefer the original “In a world full of armchair experts, don’t be caught sitting down.” along with prominent display of the V1Engineering logo. It’s a catchy statement in and of itself, but still plenty of opportunity for branding.
I’m with the ‘get’ rather than the ‘be’. Text on the front and V1 logo on the back unless there’s a pocket, then reversed with the logo over the pocket. I also lean toward ‘experts’ rather than ‘engineers’, engineers can be a stuffy bunch, unless you have a PE yourself.
