We’d like to give a big congratulations to Jennifer Mercede, the winner of our “Ode to Portland” T-Shirt Design Challenge for 2010!

A big thank you goes out to all the contestants and all the artists who submitted artwork for this contest! We’d also like to thank all of you who voted for your favorite t-shirt designs.

While we’ve conducted several t-shirt design contests, this one was different. For the first time we opened our contest to our on-line community allowing you to have a say in which design we would turn into a t-shirt.

While Jennifer Mercede’s Raindrops on Roses design was the clear winner, it was a neck in neck race with Kevin Reynolds’ Stumptown design. We love each design and have decided to print both. We are making Jennifer and Kevin’s shirts available for pre-sale in infant thru adult sizes.

This is just the beginning! If we sell out of t-shirts by one of our contest winners, we’ll keep them busy by inviting them to design other Black Wagon merchandise. So please show your support for these artists by picking up a tee or two for you and yours. Be sure to share with friends and family!

Stay tuned for more design challenges and contests! If you have ideas for future products and design challenges, please let us know – we can always be reached via our contact form. We aim to give you what you want for the babies and kids in your life!
