Design-a-Tee 5 Winners!

Skip to the rants (71)

Once again, to empower the ranks of Emerican youth, we posted a T-shirt template here on the site for you to print out and draw the most creative Emerica T-shirt graphic you could muster.

We received at least a couple of thousand entries total via email and snail mail, sifted through them all, thinned out the herd, and came up with these three winning beauties—all lovingly and painstakingly designed by you ever-creative Kids!

To give them props, each winner’s name, age and hometown is screen-printed on the inside bottom cuff of each shirt. Also, we have to display the graphics much bigger on the shirt than they actually are in real life, or else you wouldn't be able to see 'em here on the site.

Jose S., age 17, of Cainta, Rizal, Phillippines


Timothy N.
, age 19, of Cobourg, Ontario, Canada


Licata G.
(aka Yardz), age 22, of Beigem, Belgium

Each winner receives three pairs of Emerica shoes of their choice and five T-shirts bearing their winning design—not to mention full bragging rights for designing a T-shirt graphic that will be included in an official future Emerica Apparel line.

We’d sincerely like to thank everyone who entered the Emerica Design-A-Tee 5 contest. We had a blast sorting through all of your designs. Stay tuned for Design-a-Tee 6 coming sooner than you think.

    Emerica1010's Emeritar Emerica1010 Posted:
  33. ...the cat is my favorite one. emerica has nothing to do with anything! if you're gonna say it doesn't have anything to do with cats then you better say what does hubba wheels have to do with women's body parts and fancy cars? what does enjoi have to do with blowjob ads? what does mark appleyard have to do with globe?

    FrontsideFlip's Emeritar FrontsideFlip Posted:
  34. the black one is the best by fare, the white one is average and the red one is ok but random

    proudlyPinoy's Emeritar proudlyPinoy Posted:

    andyrey3s's Emeritar andyrey3s Posted:
  50. the first one is ok the kitty one is sweet but that last one is gay its too famous stars and straps for me in other words its too bro i dont think these choices were very good because i dont think i shouldve lost to these people.

    NeverKONK's Emeritar NeverKONK Posted:
  51. its seems as if you put some huge picture that covers the whole shirt then you win LAME

    NeverKONK's Emeritar NeverKONK Posted:
  52. the cat one is fucking gay, there had to be a better design to pick. I like the first one, the bird one is kind of random, but overall a good design. the best is definetly the first though.

    skateemericao6's Emeritar skateemericao6 Posted:
  53. first one is slick as hell, second one is pointless, third one is whatever

    edwin's Emeritar edwin Posted:

    EmericanGirlFoSho's Emeritar EmericanGirlFoSho Posted:
  58. I was gonna send in a picture of Calvin peeing on the emerica logo and getting shocked, but I thought it would create copywright problems...the first design is sweet though.

    Frontside's Emeritar Frontside Posted:
