Earlier this year, we asked you to send us your designs for our first-ever t-shirt design contest and you didn’t disappoint. We were really impressed with everyone’s talent and creativity! The Reuben’s team reviewed and voted on the entries and we’re pleased to announce our winner – Danny Haymond, Jr. of Tacoma!
Danny’s a graphic designer by trade and a big Star Wars fan. Since we’re releasing the t-shirt today, May 4, incorporating some element of “the Force” only seemed appropriate.
“I know I wanted to do an epic scene that fans would instantly recognize,” says Danny. “I put together a few scenes from my favorite Star Wars movies and did some thumbnail drawings. I've always thought the ‘r’ logo looked like a rope or something, so the tow cable was almost too obvious once I had that idea in my head. I've seen a few other artists online go with the idea of using the tow cable to spell something out so I adapted it for a beer setting. I took all the mechanical greebles from the AT-AT and converted them to being beer specific.”
We printed Danny’s design on charcoal grey t-shirts, which are available exclusively in the taproom while supplies last. We are donating $2 to the charity of Danny's choice, which is the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center.
Congratulations to Danny and a huge thank you to everyone who entered!
