LearnWin a limited edition Carsonified poster and t-shirt

Treehouse
writes on February 9, 2011

We’ve designed and printed three limited edition posters and t-shirts, designed by our awesome designer Mike Kus, and we’d like to give them away 🙂

We thought it’d be funny to photograph the contents of a Web Designer’s bag if they got arrested. The posters are 1.7m x 2.4m each and were printed on High White Smooth 315gsm 100% Cotton Rag, pH neutral, Acid Free art paper. They were produced using 8-color UltraChrome K3 Ink which is colour fast for 100+ years. Keep reading to find out how to win them!

How to get them …

We’d like to give these gorgeous posters and t-shirts away in three different ways …

  1. [UPDATE: Congrats Arturuo!] We’ll pick one person who comments below and send them one poster and one t-shirt of their choice.
  2. [UPDATE: Thanks everybody!] Everyone who signs up today to any plan on Think Vitamin Membership gets a poster and t-shirt of their choice. Deadline is midnight Thursday Feb 10th.
  3. [UPDATE: Congrats Emily!] We’ll pick one person who re-tweets this post and mail them a poster and t-shirt of their choice.

If you’re already a Think Vitamin Member, we’ll be picking 5 of you randomly to receive a poster and t-shirt 🙂

Here are some more photos …

    How did you guys get a hold of the stuff in my bag!!?! These are great, I would wear/hang one proudly.

  10. Do you do them in beige?

  11. Cool stuff! I can haz??

  12. I like the disclaimer. It’s important to have that because a lot of what would be in bag would depend on what type of clients I’m dealing with currently. Which may be the reason I was arrested to begin with.

  13. Cute!!! I love the poster colors. yes I agree a knife is missing and possibly a several reusable water bottles. I seems my desk is always surrounded with drinks.

  14. could be sneaking in late, but only the membership application seemed to have a date with it 🙂 Designs look great though…

    “*Contents of actual tool kit may vary from illustration.” Yeah my tool kit has blood, sweat and tears in it followed by a generous helping of grey hairs, Oo! and I have a muffin with my tea, it helps me get through ’till at least 12

  48. Two horses in a bar, discussing the latest political matters, when a dog approaches them: “I’m sorry, I couldn’t help but hear your discussion and I must say that I completely agree with you.”

  179. Would love the poster.

    Out of interest why are you not just selling these? I’m sure they would do pretty well.

    • Not trying to make money off selling them. Just wanted to do something fun and creative that would also raise awareness about TVM.

      • Anonymous on February 9, 2011 at 2:41 pm said:

        You guys are constantly doing this and it is simply awesome and we are all thankful. I am also sure your designers and developer LOVE having these kinds of creative outlets. Simply awesome as always Ryan

      • I get that and totally respect not cashing in but from a user point of view it’s actually kind of annoying.

        I’d really love one of the posters but my chances of winning are fairly slim.

        You could do the same give away style thing for the t-shirts and some specially printed posters then sell some standard prints afterwards?

  180. Beautiful giveaways! I hope I win…Thank you for the opportunity!

  209. Dear
    Ryan Carson and Mike Kus’ll fix it,

    I would like one of these t-shirts.

    If I were to get one I would make you both one in return, and Mr Carson’s would be a muscle shirt.

    Cold and T-shirtless,
    Daniel.

  210. Speaking as the owner of a t-shirt company, those shirts you’ve done there would fly out if you sold them. 😉
    And speaking as a web developer… *WANT!*
