I like to order printed stickers. They don’t always feature original artworks I created myself. Most of the time, I order stickers that contain imagery or words I want to spread, stickers that I feel need to exists. And if noone else gets them printed, I will.
Some may contain lyrics or quotes that resonate with me, and I think could rip people out of their everyday grind. Messages to interrupt the routine, or to deeply think about. Others may be only just for fun, or to promote ideas I think are worth thinking about.

This place should serve as kind of an overview over designs that I got printed and/or helped spread around the world.

33c3: Cyberwehr

I created a fictional Cyberwehr logo sticker, referencing the logo of the volunteer firefighters in Germany. At 33C3 I spread ~5000 of them. It was a lot of fun.
I want to bring a refined, improved version of that design to another chaos event in the future. But if you want to do so yourself, I won’t stop you.
Here’s the SVG files: https://git.sr.ht/~irimi1/cyberwehr-aufkleber

34c3: Laber nich, tuwat!

You maybe know the “We can do it” poster (which has a pretty interesting backstory by the way). I thought it was fairly fitting to the motto of that year’s congress, and since it’s in the public domain, I figured to just mash it up together. I also went with the official typeface of that year’s logo design, which I don’t think is permitted to publish with works. I asked the author of the font via email and never got a response though. I will however at some point find the source file again and release a version with a free to use font, promise!

36c3

I didn’t want to come with empty hands again, but I didn’t have any great ideas and was lacking the drive to brainstorm any. So I just went with the generator Bleeptrack made for anyone to use. They didn’t come out too great. The humanity one is a little misaligned, and the green in the other ones didn’t pop as much as I would have liked it to.
Still I’m happy I made and brought them.

Find the SVG files in my sticker repo. Those are the files (with improved alignment) I created the printing files from. Those still contain the boxes for cutting and clearance for Flyeralarm’s ~7x2cm format with rounded edges
