In June the OpenStack Foundation launched its first T-Shirt Design Contest encouraging the community to help contribute to our collection of unique and fun shirt designs. Two months later it’s now time to announce the proud winner – Raul Chan!
Here is Raul’s design:
Raul is a 17-year-old student in Hong Kong, who is incredibly passionate about design. He’s been drawing, sketching and designing for a year now with the dream to become a graphic designer one day. You can check out his other designs on his Instagram account ,@d_raul.
When we asked what his inspiration was for the OpenStack design, he said “as I know that OpenStack is a cloud operating system which processed lots of data for many companies, I used the logo of OpenStack to form a ‘cloud’. Besides, different colors of the ‘cloud’ represent the diversification of OpenStack.” Raul isn’t very involved with OpenStack but became interested in it as it became increasingly popular in China.
Raul’s design will be featured on T-Shirts that will be given out at LinuxCon Cloud Open in New Orleans in September and at other events where OpenStack will have a presence later this year and in early 2014.
For his efforts, we’re sending him and his family several T-Shirts and a free ticket to the OpenStack Summit in Hong Kong. So say hello if you see him around!
PS: If you want to pen the next design that’ll decorate the OpenStack T-Shirts – look out for the 2014 T-Shirt Design Contest. We’ll be announcing it on the OpenStack blog and our other social media channels in the coming months.
