I should clarify, a t-shirt design specifically for DConf 2014.

1. Is there any limitation on how the design should be? Must the "D" logo be used in design?

No.
 2. Where to upload design? Any specific place?

Wherever is fine.
 When I am bored or eating, I may open Illustrator or Photoshop for a while.

Just no food stains on the design, please. Unless they're for artistic effect. Andrei

No design is done until there's a coffee cup ring on it.

Which colors? Black and / or white? Any other color?

I am planning to do a design with red (or maroon) over white. Less colour, cheap T-shirt ;).

Black and white are usually the cheapest t-shirts. I think white is even cheaper. Keep in mind that the logo has to look cool on black as well, so either it can be converted to white on black, or the red looks good on black too (maybe a brighter / more intense kind of red cf. heavy metal t-shirts :-).

Ah, and SVG would be the best choice. But Walter would have to make sure which format the printers accept. You'd be surprised how backward / ignorant some shops are.

I'll ask. Andrei

AI, PSD, PDF, PNG, SVG, JPG. I can generate any of them. No problem at all. I will try to upload them wiki as soon as possible. I don't know the timing until when the design should be chosen, et cetera. I am sure people has lots of ideas as well. So, we can do changes on them. I completed those designs in less than 2 hours. So, they are quick and dirty designs.

Great, thanks. Let's set the deadline to March 21, one month before the event. If other people have suggestions for tcak, or competing designs, let them known by then. Thanks, Andrei

Hello. Well, I have prepared 10 different designs, and also put 4 of them on T-shirts to be seen. Wiki requires registration etc. So, I have uploaded them to Neffie Publink. They can be found and download from following link. http://publink.neffie.com/subject/GnzYk3RAbbCNkWRPdGyGmeE1ceaFPc5xJ1m5l1LZr6vcQtbchtayo75Iawm1AG0t All of them are my designs and vector based.

Noice. Me, I like t-shirt design 5 the most. Andrei

 So, eventually it will need at least two colours to be used.

We had multiple colors last year, you can assume we will again. Andrei

Assuming this is for the conference, last year's were dark gray

Thanks for that Tourist. About that design, actually I was seeing those circles as people those are coming to the conference. I don't know the pricing though, if more colours won't be a problem, design can be improved. In CMYK, there is no direct red colour already. So, eventually it will need at least two colours to be used.

When I put them onto black t-shirt, it reminded me Iron Man :D

Anyway, since people needed to download again and again to see 
designs, Image Preview feature is added as well. So, there is no 
need to download images to see them any more.
