If you are not the person(s) responsible for the t-shirts at Web Design World, please forward this to the appropriate parties. If you are, however, responsible for ordering, designing, or otherwise managing the free t-shirts given out in exchange for a Conference Evaluation Form, please note the following:
- The design of the t-shirt was nice. Perhaps a little understated, but nice nonetheless.
- The quality of the t-shirt seems to be decent. It certainly seems to be made of a higher quality fabric than most free t-shirts.
- I will never wear this t-shirt.
Why? Because I cannot fit into a medium or large t-shirt. Certainly not after it has gone through a normal washing cycle. It seems to me that a conference featuring usability and design experts would realize that not everyone wears the same size clothing. In fact, as I look around the conference (and the greater Seattle area) I see a lot of people that would NOT fit into a medium or large t-shirt. You did the upfront work: upon registration, we were asked for our desired t-shirt size. How this translated into only having medium and large shirts available on the last day is beyond me.
Maybe there were XL (or even XXL) shirts available at some point in time and you mearly underestimated the number of extra large attendees. I’m not sure what happened, but I had to give the t-shirt away.
