I was thinking about
That looks a bit like a “text, but better” (without BB :P), just
like C++ is C, but incremented.
Of course, it's a bit visually unbalanced. But still better in my
mind than “textmate”, plain and simple.
I'd say :
“textmate” pros :
- the T-shirt has the product name on it, so every one has at least a
slight idea of what it is about
- visually balanced (I like the bold text/not bold mate)
“textmate” cons :
- it probably won't trigger anything other people (even geeks). No
surprise, no question, no nothing. Actually, I find it little boring.
“text⇥” pros :
- shows a feature of our favorite editor
- can catch the geek (well, isn't a vast majority of the mate users
geeks?) attention and curiosity. Every single one must know about tab
“text⇥” cons :
- other people probably won't be attracted, and it doesn't contain
the app name, thus making it hard to discover TM
- visually unbalanced
Well, I wouldn't wear the first one, but it seems to be popular, so
I'm afraid I'l have to wear something else. Still, for the color, I'd
prefer a entirely purple one. While I'm at it, is it possible to get
a drawing as complex as the TM icon on a T-shirt? At least, without
making it awfully expensive? Perhaps we should mind the possibility
of purple (not black) and white or at least avoid gradation.
