Promo: What would your Giordano shirt say? | Giordano Typography Tee Design Contest

For some time I thought statement tees will be a thing of the past, but more and more people want to "wear what they think" and so statement tees are still everywhere. What would your shirt say?

Giordano: World Without Strangers

Giordano is currently holding another typography tee design contest and up for grabs are up to P30,000 cash and gift certificates! The theme for this year is "World Without Strangers". Timely indeed if you ask me.

8 semi-finalists will be selected, I want to join but don't know what to say yet. The migraine boy in me wants to say something sarcastic but that's the least the world needs today :) Oh wait, I have one:

Whoever copies my mock design above will never find true love! :P So go ahead and make your own using Adobe Photoshop or Macromedia Freehand format.

Read on below for the full mechanics including where to send your entries *click*
