Thank you for the designs and congratulations on being selected as one of the winning designs!
Talented designer and quick with revisions! He made the contest a pleasant and fun experience. Can't wait to have the design on my merchandise shop! Rock on, Jcjon :)
Fantastic design from the get-go. Very much in the times with an old-style Japanese empire feel that could go with so many different kinds of merchandise. Easy to work with and I'm excited to see how I can put the beautiful design to work!
This designer spends a lot of detailed focus and individual time on her designs. In my time working with her she provided us with a lot of suggestions, alterations, and creativity to match our vision. Her creative vision provided us with an intriguing, global, and unique design. I highly recommend working with her for your designs.

Coffee and community
The Venture Café was created to provide a resource for the Boston entrepreneurial and innovation communities. Our mission is to enable fresh and useful conversations.
Cambridge is a fountain of innovative spirit, spirit that needs a framework to reach its full potential. The Venture Café serves as a nexus for helping innovators and entrepreneurs find one another and collaborate to bring their dreams to reality.
Even in this digital world, it’s important to have a physical space. Shared physical spaces provide common meeting ground and a forum for semi-serendipitous encounters that often foster brainstorming and drive creativity. Meeting in person establishes the trust that’s so crucial to working together, particularly on risky, underfunded projects. The Venture Café can provide the framework upon which numerous experimental “applications” can be nurtured and launched.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
As for the design, a lot of clothing stores these days are selling so-called "graphic Ts". These are highly designed T shirts with anything from abstract words to, basically, advertisements for cool-sounding places that the wearers have never been to. They sell because they look great, and make the wearer look cool. I'd like to take inspiration from these designs, and the looks they have, which are self-evidently appealing to today's public to do designs that reference the Venture Cafe. They don't need to use the logo in any way.
For content: The designers can look to the http://www.venturecafe.net website and the VenCaf blog for inspiration in terms of what words or images to include. They could include the logo, or just the words Venture Cafe, or the words "Cambridge, Massachusetts", or "MIT" and maybe "Harvard", or words from the Venture Cafe credo, words from interviews or videos about the Venture Cafe that they find on the site or on the blogetc. This is an artistic exercise, and we're asking them to be creative.
