The 2014 T-shirt design contest is a wrap! Thank you to everyone who shared their creativity and original designs with us this year.
We are excited to reveal our winner, Jaewin Ong of Singapore! This colorful design will debut on T-Shirts at PyCon in Montreal this week, and will be distributed at upcoming events worldwide.
We wanted to learn more about the creative mind behind the design, so we asked Jaewin a few questions:
What was your inspiration for this design?
- The inspiration was actually the OpenStack logo! Since the logo is already of significance, I thought it would be cool to manipulate it with bright colors and superimposing the outline with itself.
How long have you been designing?
- My first design was for a T-Shirt, incidentally, during my freshman year in university. The T-Shirts were printed and sold to raise funds for a committee I was involved in. And I started out with MS Paint! I’ve come a long way.
Where are you currently working?
- I’m currently a junior in university pursuing a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
In what way are you involved in OpenStack?
- I’m afraid to say that my involvement with OpenStack is minimal. Although, I had some experience with Python during my internship. Otherwise, I do find cloud computing to be rather complex and I admire people who do it.
Do you publish any of your other work online?
- I don’t publish my work because I’m doing this out of interest. I would be grateful when it comes to a point where I’m publishing my work for other purposes besides interest.
Is there anything else you might like to share about yourself?
- I constantly look for opportunities like this to improve myself. It might not be a big deal to some, but it’s a big deal to me!
