    Can someone explain the gap one? Everybody seems to love it but I don’t get it.

      “Mind the Gap” is something the automated voice says when you get on the subway/tube in London – and it’s associated graphic:

    • savoirfaire July 22, 2020 (7:17 pm)

      In the London Underground (subway) there are signs and recorded messages warning people to “mind the gap,” that is, watch out for the gap between the platform and the train, as they board.

    Rebecca Dahlin – So Close, Yet so FarThis one reminds me of Seattle before Microsoft, Amazon, and the bridge.

  • wseaturtle July 21, 2020 (10:38 pm)

    Yesss, 4 of the 5 I voted for are in the top 10! Hope one of them makes it to t-shirt form.Also agree with Ghill, they should make more too designs into postcards (or stickers/patches).. lots of nice ones submitted! :)

  • Name July 21, 2020 (11:36 pm)

    Two more and you could make a calendar.

    Love ” Mind the  Gap”

  • HelperMonkey July 22, 2020 (8:12 am)

    I would love to see these all made into limited art prints as well – I’d happily hang any of these as art in my home! 

  • Kathy July 22, 2020 (8:52 am)

    I’m sorry the one with the bandaid connecting West Seattle to the “mainland” didn’t make the top ten.

    • WSB July 22, 2020 (9:45 am)

      This is only where voting stands now – still time for this to change, no one’s been cut from contention.

  • DRC July 22, 2020 (8:55 am)

        WE are not a Island. A Island is surrounded by water we are not.

  • AT July 22, 2020 (9:00 am)

    I hope there will be options for t-shirt colors, I like the 2 with black backgrounds and some of the other would look great on black.  I almost never buy shirts with prints or writing but would actually buy and wear one of these if it comes in black.Nice work, everyone!

  • Tanej July 22, 2020 (9:26 am)

    Love Mind The Gap!  Although it’s VERY hard to choose just one.  “East Vashon” is a hoot.  “Stranded In Paradise” is how I describe it to my boss (so I can just keep working remotely).  Definitely want stickers of ALL of these.  Thank you Everyone for these designs.

  • WS bridge advocate July 22, 2020 (9:42 am)

    What a wonderful group of concepts! Watching from the Tip is my fave tho! 

  • Kathy Blackwell July 22, 2020 (10:39 am)

    Mind the Gap!

  • Jennifer McIntosh July 22, 2020 (7:00 pm)

    Wow, how do you choose? What a fantastic group. Please make the Top 5

  • Ham July 22, 2020 (9:22 pm)

    I love these! So much creativity and cleverness.  I’d buy the postcards too …
