Design a T-shirt for Mozilla QA

(crossposted from our QA blog)

Attention visual designers! Are you interested in contributing to Mozilla QA? Design a T-shirt for Mozilla’s Quality Assurance (QA) team!

At Mozilla QA, we work with our community members to drive software quality assurance activities across Mozilla. We play a key role in releasing a diverse range of software products on schedule.

Along with jeans and sneakers, T-shirts are very much a part of a Mozillian’s wardrobe. Not only are they light and comfortable to wear, T-shirts also serve as a medium of personal expression.

At Mozilla, we have a special love affair with T-shirts. The walls of Mozilla’s headquarters in Mountain View are framed with T-shirts from the early Netscape days to recent times. T-shirts mark important milestones in the organization’s history, advertise its mission statement, and celebrate important anniversaries. They also announce new product launches, express team solidarity, and help Mozillians recognize each other in public places.

Are you interested in creating a T-shirt for Mozilla QA? You need not be a professional designer – we’d love to have you try your hand at creativity and submit your design. You would be part of an awesome worldwide community and your work would be seen by a lot of people.

What we’re looking for

  • We want a T-shirt design that would convey the QA team’s unique identity and mission within Mozilla.
  • To submit designs, please upload your images to Flickr and tag them with mozqatshirt. (This part is very important – we won’t see your submission if it’s not tagged properly.)
  • Your images should be no larger than 20cm by 20cm (about 8in by 8in).
  • If your design is selected, you will be requested to submit vector files or high-quality raster images of minimum 300dpi.
  • Designs are due on Thursday, April 30 2015 8:00 PM PST.

Design Guidelines

If you have questions, please ask in the comments below and we’ll respond as quickly as possible.

      Thanks for the question. It’s probably best if you head over to https://quality.mozilla.org/ and ask this same question there. They’ll be able to give you the answer.
