mentors: Mario Behling

Design a Colored Tshirt for the FOSSASIA community in your area or for a FOSSASIA event (e.g. for Singapore from March 13-15) with Open Source graphics applications and provide your source files in Open Source formats like XCF of SVG. Consider using different Asian languages or cultural influences on your design.

There some inspiring tutorials online for example for Gimp and Inkscape, but also many other.

For Gimp have a look here:

For Inkscape see tutorials here:

Sources for FOSSASIA designs are here:


  • Please create all elements of the design within the Open Source application you use (e.g. Inkscape, Gimp, Krita)
  • Why not try a tag cloud similar to the photo below with some words in your language?
  • Please avoid including random images from the Internet
  • Please use the FOSSASIA font Spaceman.TTF or our vector graphics for your design [Folder here]
  • Show the designs on a Tshirt outline

Expectations and Limits

  • Simply adding the FOSSASIA logo and some other logos or images to a T-shirt outline is not sufficient

Files and Resolution

  • Provide your designs as source files, e.g. a SVG file with vector graphic components or as XCF
  • Export the file as a png for previews
  • Please ensure a good resolution for print e.g. above 300dpi

Useful applications
