Title: More Ant Less Logo (for T-shirts)
Post by: Sister Wolf on December 21, 2009, 04:48:47 PM
We've had a bunch of requests for the title of this thread lately.  More than we've had about any other one product.

So what if we did something a la...

The website URL is still there at the very bottom of the back of the shirt, in small letters.  I wanted it there, but I also wanted those of you who are going stealth to be able to hide it (which you can do by tucking the shirt in).

What say you, oh my lovable rabble rousers?  ;)

Love it but......

Think the black ant on the tan t shirt (like the caps) would be even cooler.

and here's the back (forgive me - I couldn't find a pic of the actual color of the tee from the back side, so we just have to imagine that this is the back, not the front.  And the bottom is shaped really weird in the photo because of the moron designers who thought it would be cool to put the shirt at an angle.  I promise the website will look waaaaayyyyyyyy nicer than that at the bottom.  Just like in the od green version).

Also, maybe I can do both the khaki AND the OD green.  If you guys want this shirt for reals true.  :)

I think I would like a side view better than an overhead view. It kinda looks like its getting ready to crawl up under my collar and eat me :D

I like the OD green one myself. Good work! I think the logo shirt is awesome too.

Brr, there's something about that ant that looks awfully spidery.

I've lost most of my arachnophobia over the years, but that giant bug creeps me out.  I'm not sure what it is.

Wait, lemme call over my resident bug expert...  Okay, she says there's something wrong about the legs.  Especially that they're thick and they taper.  But also they don't point the right way, or something.

Hmm.  I'll see if I can find a top-view ant photo to compare.

"I think, therefore I am an ant."

It's a joke based on Descartes' famous philosophical proof of his own existence, "Cogito ergo sum" ("I think, therefore I am").

Here you are Mr Bill.......

Purty ants!  Thank you.

Here are lots and lots and lots of ant photos (http://www.alexanderwild.com/ants).

Another vote for rotating the ant!  I think the OD will look great too (khaki ant on the OD and OD or black ant on the khaki?)

I like either one, and would order a couple of each color.

I'm sorry I haven't followed through on my promise to get another one out for a vote.  I don't have any excuse that matters.  I probably won't be able to get it done today either, but it's on my list.

I like it as is.  Kind of has the feel of the spider-man logo.  The Latin is conversation starter as well.

Put it on a Coyote brown/tan shirt, and you would have perfection

You could even try the side-view ant in a much smaller size - along the lines of a polo shirt logo for even more stealth. :)  Maybe embroidered, just like the Ralph Lauren stuff.

Liking the way this one is headed, SW!

Forgive my ignorance, I do not know latin? ???

So it's not just me!  I was familiar with the first part, but the last word threw me.  I read it as "I think, therefore I am a synthetic countertop material"

I often wonder why we think that things said in different language is more profound than in our own...  8)

Just wondering...

Latin [in this case] is maybe a tie to the past or past wisdom I suppose...

It's "I think, therefore I am an ant"

Edit:  Guys, seriously.  The next post down after that original question, answered it.

"I think, therefore I am an ant."

It's a joke based on Descartes' famous philosophical proof of his own existence, "Cogito ergo sum" ("I think, therefore I am").

I felt left out so I  made one. Feel free to use it, resize it, etc.
just don't swipe my nifty ant head logo.  :-*

BTW, it says, "I think therefore I am ant."  ;D

No, you were not. Who knew they named their synthetic countertops after ants?

For what its worth I think this would look really nice across the chest of a black shirt with the white lettering or OD/coyote tan in black lettering...maybe the military stencil type font or the font it's already in.

Just a thought...i'd buy one or two :)

And in regards to the original post I dig that shirt in OD...I'd definately buy it.

Also you could go for "Got Formica?" with that logo lol.

FWIW ~ I sorta like this idea best because I'm not a bug fan unless I have Raid with me.  I love the Latin too.   :)
