Keep Calm and Joe Panik [T-Shirt Design, Christmas Gift Ideas]

My Keep Calm and Joe Panik Shirt DesignMy Keep Calm and Joe Panik Shirt Design

During the World Series broadcasts, I saw a Keep Calm sign related to Joe Panik, and it inspired me to “design” (I don’t know what other word to use) a shirt for it. It’s a Christmas gift to myself!

I couldn’t use the official San Francisco Giants font, but the orange color matches relatively well. The “12” (Panik’s number) on the back does match the Giants jersey font, found at ffonts.net. I put a World Series trophy (to celebrate 2014!) on top in replacement of the typical “Keep Calm” crown. By the way, the origins of Keep Calm are really interesting, I had to read up to make sure I wasn’t doing something in violation of a trademark.

Here’s the real life version that I received:
