Proud to be HSD Staff T-Shirt Design Contest

Proud to be HSD Staff T-Shirt Design Contest
We are already busy preparing for our 2019-20 kick-off event in August, which means it’s time to design a new t-shirt for staff! Rather than Communications staff just deciding what that design will be, we thought it would be fun to make a contest out of it. Staff are welcome to submit designs, or you can have your Art, Graphic Design, Leadership, or other students submit designs as well.

Here are some guidelines:

  • NO copyrighted material—must be original work
  • Design will be silkscreened onto a solid-color, short-sleeved t-shirt (recommend a t-shirt color)
  • One ink color only for the design (specify the color)
  • Design must include the official Hillsboro School District logo and/or the Proud to be HSD logo/theme
  • Please refer to the District’s Style and Design Guide for logo usage guidelines
  • “Hillsboro” alone should not be used, as that might be confused with the City of Hillsboro or with Hillsboro High School; also remember that the Hillsboro School District encompasses seven different communities
  • Design should appeal to all staff at all school levels as well as to those not based in schools
  • Ideally, the design will be created in a vector-based application (such as Adobe Illustrator) and not include any photos
  • Hand drawings are acceptable as long as they can be clearly scanned and converted
  • Art that is not submitted as an .ai or .eps file will need to be converted or recreated as vector-based files, so complex images may not replicate well
  • Shading, gradients, etc. may not silkscreen very well. Tones may be created using percentages of the one color used (no lower than 50% for best visibility).

Please submit your designs by e-mail to Multimedia Specialist Omar Rivera at by Friday, April 12. If you have questions, feel free to call him at 503-844-1762 or from an internal phone at x2762.

Top designs will be presented for voting in the April 22 issue of Hot News.
