Diablo III T-shirt Design Contest

Hello, my friend.
Stay awhile and listen…

Design by Humans is looking for some heroic Humans – or perhaps Demon Hunters or Monks – to design truly worthy T-shirts inspired by Blizzard's Action RPG masterpiece, Diablo III. Design By Humans and its community are a force to be reckoned with in the t-shirt design world, so we're thrilled to be partnering with Blizzard Entertainment, an absolute juggernaut in the video game design world. Combine these two forces, and we expect to see some truly extraordinary shirt designs.

This Is Your Canvas, Create An Epic Diablo III T-Shirt

This Is Your Canvas, Create An Epic Diablo III T-Shirt

By entering, you're giving yourself the chance to have your work seen by the creative minds at Blizzard Entertainment, the very people behind some of the greatest video game titles of the last 20 years. Not to mention reviewed by Design By Humans and it's global community.

Together, we're sending you on a quest: design a t-shirt using characters from Diablo III, and then pit them against each other in a massive art contest for a combined $12,500 in cash and additional prizes. Your quest is somewhat less dangerous than defeating the Prime Evils. No need to fight Mephisto – but feel free to incorporate him into your design.

In fact, you can incorporate any of fifteen character designs from the Diablo Universe listed below.

Yay! Mine got in! :)


@nicebleed: Wow! I love it!

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

Oh and I noticed one that either accidentally got through the filtering process or they just let slide. There is a Maghda shirt up even though she isn’t on the list. Not really worried about it because it really isn’t high quality enough to get anywhere but I figure I should at least mention it in case it got through by accident.

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

Wonder if that is all of them or if there are more to come, it was a big update.

At this point I can tell the top 20 based on the difference in skill and look of the shirts because they are the most complete, fit the what the contest wants, and look damn good on a shirt. There were quite a few outside that 20 that look great but do not fit with the diablo 3 mood or are hard to really connect with diablo 3 due to some extreme interpretation.

@Inked Whoa! And the countdown starts. Thanks for creating this contest DesignByHumans together with Blizzard’s Diablo III, it was fun making the challenges and the contest has really gathered artists around the world to show and express their creativity in making their design. It’s worth to recognize the time being spent by everyone for this event and it’s interesting to see different artworks from talented artists all around. Thank you…
