  • S.McDuck

    So. . .I design a T-shirt, win *maybe* $1000 and you guys get to make money off of it? Uh, no.

    • Froman

      exactly, If I had a killer design I would prefer to sell the design for royalties rather then a shot at 1000.

      • emini

        true, but who's going to buy a Froman shirt. People will buy chive endorsed Tees. i'll submit a mediocre design. we can renegotiate for my other superior designs 🙂

    Oldest trick in the book on how to get a really cheap design that you know will sell.

  • morebeer

    I can't wait for some asshole to ask where to get one of these awesome chive question mark t shirts

    • B Dub

      Hey, where do I get one of those awesome Chive question mark shirts?

  • mallardmountain


    Stop degrading your profession by working for free.
    Take time and read the American Institute of Graphic Arts' stance on SPEC work. http://www.aiga.org/position-spec-work/

    I love the chive, but asking people to spend their time working for free is not right.

    • ddd

      does basic t-shirt design really demand "professional" work. they sell f'in t-shirts with states on them (don't get me started on the "funny" labeling) and rip off famous artists designs. good luck getting contract work for that shit.

      • mallardmountain

        Must not know what a contract entails….

    • Unwavering

      Seriously, pretty fucking lame that you have to have Facebook. Fuck Facebook.

    Cool Fail fellas….

  • A.E.

    Epic fail chive

  • baammm

    Don't be pansies, you get to Brag about being the designer of a chive tee!

  • Dave

    So, you're telling me that I have to join fucking facebook in order to take part? That's fucked up. Facebook is fucked up, it's a fuckked up way to get designs, it's a fucking crime, a fucking waste of space a fucked up fucked over fucking crappy fucking trick to get people to design a fucking t-shirt for a lousy fucking grand, or even worse a thrid place prize of fucking $100, which is a big fucking joke, a fucking $100 tip and I imagine you'll fucking retain the fucking rights to the fucking design too for a lousy fucking hundred bucks. Design your own fucking shirt and stick it on fucking facebook.

    • MohawkJon

      Agreed but watch your fucking language.
      Kids get their porn on here.

      • Dave

        Yes, and it is fucking ridiculous that I can't even get a $4 fucking crapapy fucking gonna fucking fade t-shirt for $24 fucking bucks . I love Chive, but I think their fucking marketing promo manager fucking sucks and noon-thirty comes ways too soon to the fucking people who make these fucking decisions. Join Facebook they say – fuck that fuck the whole stupid FUCKING LIKE ME ON FACEBOOK THING! I thought fucking chive was better than that. Facebook. Fuck.

        • caleb

          Don't hold back, bro.

    • Craig

      U mad bro?

      • Emma

        I ain't even mad

    • amazed

      Well we all know how many fucks he gives!

  • https://www.facebook.com/john.minton2 John Rives Minton

    Fuck yeah

  • http://www.facebook.com/trish.sidelko Trish Sidelko

    I think everyone is forgetting to KEEP CALM AND CHIVE ON!!! I personally think it would be awesome to have my design on t-shirts worldwide…regardless of whether or not there is compensation involved.

    • Dave

      Trish, you are a fucking Lemming.

      • http://www.facebook.com/trish.sidelko Trish Sidelko

        Not sure how stating my OWN opinion classifies me as a lemming, but you are entitled to your own opinion. Like I said, I could give a shit whether or not I personally get monetary compensation but I know there are people struggling out there that would appreciate any money they could get. Knowing that fellow Chiver's around the world are rocking my design is good enough for me.

      • Dave eats balls

        Dave, you are a dick.

    • Doe

      I agree wit u like making a song n hearing it for Tha first time

  • morebeer

    Awesome doesn't pay the bills

    Real world = Do work, get paid!

    • http://www.facebook.com/trish.sidelko Trish Sidelko

      Very true, though, any little money helps when you truly have nothing.

      • mallardmountain

        Try being a designer whos profession is constantly asked to do work for free or "do some of our work and we'll see if we want to hire you"

        That type of garbage (that isnt tolerated in other professions) is because of contests like this.

        You want good design work chive? Ask for links to chivers design portfolios and hire one of them on a contract basis to create a tshirt design for you. Then promote it as a CHIVER CREATED shirt.

        • pepelepew

          should of went to school for something else, or should have used a condom with Mary Ann back in Junior year.. just saying..

          • mallardmountain

            I dont even….what?

  • zerg

    God the amount of but-hurt designers bitching on this post is grater that I ever imagined, I may not be sensible to the difficulties of the medium and what not but if you dont agree with the post… just ignore it, no need to go ballistic about it… I'm sure many would like to submit and win, EVEN if there was no money involved.

    • You're dumb


      • You're butt-hurt

        butt-hurt? aren't we?

    • caleb

      Sweet christ, all i want is a Canadian KCCO tee. How about making more of the products you currently sell? Sold out in 3 minutes is ridonkulous!

  • pepelepew

    Reward recognition and Chive props from other Chivers. Hopefully theCHIVE doesn't turn into this huge crazy business-style non-underground and non-bad-ass society that we have going on.

    Money shouldn't be a factor, especially as a reward.

    So wake up Chivers and if you are going to do this, well do it for the sake of the Chivers and also you being a Chiver.

    • http://www.facebook.com/trish.sidelko Trish Sidelko

      Nailed it. Chive On!

  • http://thechive wak


  • ksc

    Haha, very generous chive. You will make hundreds of thousands from whatever shirt is designed and you have to pay out a cool g to get it designed.

    That would be like making money by starting a website that posts pictures from other websites…brilliant idea.

    • Nice

      Haha nailed it

  • NachoNate

    Nobody is forcing you to participate! KCCO or GTFO

  • Frank

    Happy to get my name out there. The bragging rights alone are worth it. FYI I’m a professional graphic artist and 3d animator. Expect a design from me!

    • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

      We should get together!
      You KNOW Chivers will be fighting each other for a T-shirt with their beloved Paula on it!
