New Brand, New swag!

For the past few years, the leadership at Youth Dynamics has spent a considerable amount of time analyzing the organization’s history, effectiveness, and how we communicate who we are and what we do best. We’ve grown and shifted, but we’re also still true to our roots.

This March, Youth Dynamics unveiled a brand new logo and tag line (let’s adventure together), and as such, it is time to get some new swag to go with it! We believe there is a ton of creativity floating around our community, so we wanted to open up an opportunity for YOU to help us with a new t-shirt design!

October 1, 2020,  is the first day of our crowd-sourced Adventure T-Shirt Design Challenge! It is super simple: Anyone of, any age, is invited to send a submission for a super cool Adventure-related t-shirt.
There will be three winning shirts, all available to purchase via our online store!
  1. The grand prize winner will be chosen via a vote on our Instagram Story after the deadline
  2. 2nd and 3rd place winners will be voted on by our staff.
Here are the design specs:
  • Create your design. It should fit on a letter-size page (8.5×11”) and be a JPEG image.
  • It MUST be one color. No grayscale.
  • The design should be clean and family-friendly, related to the outdoors, ministry, adventure, or something that indicates Youth Dynamics Adventures. It should be one color, and one panel (i.e., front of shirt only).
  • It need not incorporate the logo (we’ll place the logo elsewhere on the shirt should we decide to include it).
To submit:
  • Post your design on Instagram! Use the tag @ydadventures and use the hashtag #ydadventuresteecontest. If you don’t have Instagram, you can email it to us: social@yd.org
    *Note that all submissions give Youth Dynamics the right to post it socially and to use that graphic throughout the ministry.
  • The deadline for entries is October 31, 2020.
Shirt Contest Highlights

Winners will get:

  2. A brief blurb about each designer (written by the winner), a photo of the artist, and a link to their art/site/whatever. It won’t stay up forever, but we’ll be sharing it on social media as a great way to help us announce the winners. This page will be converted to a “Here are the Winners” announcement page.
  3. Promotional opportunity to post your win to your site (with a connection back to us of course!)
