The winning design for the Her Universe/ThinkGeek “Make it Sew” Star Trek shirt design contest has been announced.
Jeremy Sniatecki won with his EntHERprise design.
The EntHERprise design featured “a creative merging of the original series Starship Enterprise and the classic female gender symbol.”
“I had so much fun doing this Star Trek design contest with ThinkGeek,” said Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe. “We received several amazing designs and it was definitely a tough decision. However, we felt that Jeremy’s design was so unique and original, especially in celebration of the ‘Year of the Fangirl.’ His design was simply perfect!”
“I almost didn’t enter this one, assuming everyone else in the competition would also instantly notice that the classic female symbol sure looks like the top view of the original Enterprise, with nacelles added on, of course,” said Sniatecki. “I ran the concept by my wife, who is a major sci-fi fan and a trusted sounding board for all things creative, and she loved the simplicity of it! ‘I would totally buy and wear that!’ she said, and so I entered it! She’s very choosy about her own nerdy t-shirt purchases, so that was high praise indeed.”
“I can’t even describe how exciting it was to get the phone call that my design was chosen as the top winner of this very special competition out of hundreds of worthwhile entries,” said Sniatecki. “Her Universe and ThinkGeek are held in high esteem in our house, and there was at least a few minutes of jumping up and down together as a family once the notification call had ended. Thanks so much to Ashley and her team at Her Universe, and to ThinkGeek! It’s an honor for sure!”
Sniatecki earned $500 in cash for his efforts. EntHERprise is now available for purchase here.
