Design Requirements

The theme for this year’s Mysterium is Mysterium Through the Ages, with a sub-theme of the Ahnonay age. You are encouraged to implement elements of these themes into your design, along with inspiration from any Cyan games.

Bonus points if you can work something about the host city (Spokane, WA) or Mysterium’s 20th anniversary into your design.

Front Logo / Pocket Logo

The shirt front logo should be a simple, easily recognized design. It will be used on the front of the Mysterium t-shirt, and certain memorabilia.

  • One color, grayscale – keep in mind that this will be either black or white on a colored background (depending on the chosen shirt color we may invert your design), and thus we cannot guarantee the accuracy of halftone reproduction. Do not use a gradient.
  • May contain Location and Date
  • May contain word “Mysterium”
  • Print size should be no less than 8” x 8”
  • You may use the Falling Man logo, but it is no longer required – .jpg, .eps, .tif, and .svg versions are available at http://www.mysterium.net/logo/

The FRONT LOGO may alternately be substituted with a maximum 3” x 3” POCKET LOGO with the same requirements listed above.

Back Logo

The shirt back logo is more detailed than the front logo, and often visually represents the location Mysterium is being held.

  • Up to four colors – these may contain halftones/shading, but no color blending/gradients
  • May use Falling Man logo
  • May contain Location and Date
  • May contain word “Mysterium”
  • Print size no less than 9” x 12”
