Ding Dong I love Ping Pong

So I made these t-shirts for school and in all my stupidity, I spell Ping pong PONGPONG. I was writing it backwards so it would be as long as the dingdong. I managed to do a fix up job by turning the O into a paddle with an i in the middle. (At the moment the i is a photoshop job, I'm waiting for it to dry before I print it)

My "fix up" sort of works. It made me so angry all I could do was laugh and say I'm an idiot over and over again. I don't think I would have even noticed till Gareth told me. The kids would have just laughed and said, oh the impotence of proof reading!




In far more exciting news my little badges are in the Frank Bits in Frankie Magazine with some other noteworthy people, including Made It, Liana Kabel and Kara Smith.

Hehe, I think your fixup idea looks cool! Just pretend you meant it to be like that :)

Congrats on the Frankie magazine feature - how cool!! I really like that magazine, for now... I hope it doesn't become too commercialised and whatnot, as all the cool mags do.

I thought your badges looked gorgeous here - 3 in a row.

the role of chance in design ... sometimes known as murphy's law! Anyway, you fixed it and I think it looks better than if you hadn't had the initial spelling malfunction!
