For their 8th annual ZooWalk for Autism in East Valley Arizona, the fundraisers came up with a great idea to garner support. They held a contest asking participants to design the promotional t-shirt for their October 6 walk.

BLT Shirt Printers thinks this is a great idea for charity groups struggling to come up with fun graphic designs year after year. By holding an open designing contest, you drum up early support for your cause, get a wide range of ideas and cultivate excitement in the community. Also, instead of staring morosely at a blank piece of paper, you’ll get the chance to peruse the diverse work of others.

Each successful company has an image that’s easily recognizable. Disney has the Mickey ears, Apple has the nibbled fruit and Budweiser has the Clydesdale. These images are on t-shirts, technology items and any other product that the companies can think of.

Why are these images so important to companies? Because dynamic, iconic images sell brands and further advertising for companies willing to invest in them. Big businesses don’t have to be the only businesses that profit off of branding.
