I Love Transit 2012: send us your design ideas!

I Love Transit 2012: send us your design ideas!

The buttons designed for I Love Transit 2010 (yes, I know Millennium is missing one 'n': we fixed that later :)

Hey! We’re planning for I Love Transit Week from July 16-20, 2012, and we’d love to make some new buttons (and more!) with your design ideas!

(For those who don’t know, I Love Transit is the one week a year where we all shout out our love for public transit. Find out more here!)

For 2012, we’re thinking of going beyond buttons and making a few stickers, t-shirts, and even temporary tattoos for I Love Transit Night, our annual I Love Transit meetup event. So we’d love you to put on your thinking caps and send us ideas for good designs: good slogans, imagery, and more!

Let your imaginations run wild, and we’ll have our design team cook something great up. For example, in 2010 someone suggested the slogan “Transit stole my heart,” resulting in one of the lovely buttons in the picture above :)

Use the comments, or email us at with your ideas, illustrations, and more. Deadline for submissions is June 26, 2012 at 9am, just so we have enough time to get everything produced. Go go go!

Send us essays, photos, and more!

As well, we are once again welcoming submissions of essays, photos, videos, and anything else you like—the only stipulations are that it’s about your love of transit, and it’s safe for a family-friendly audience.

We’ll run as many as we can on the blog from July 16-20, 2012, and we’ll showcase them in the August 2012 print Buzzer!

Go on, do your best, and send the results our way at We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!
