CONsole Room 2014 T-Shirts

Have you ordered your official CONsole Room 2014 t-shirt? If not, check out our preliminary design below, courtesy of our awesome designer, Shawn Van Briesen! Although we’re still tweaking the final design, we’re already excited at how it’s turning out.

You can get one by adding it to your cart when you complete your registration for CONsole Room or, if you’ve already registered, you can order one separately by visiting our Square Market. While we will have a few extra shirts available for purchase on-site, pre-ordering is the best way to ensure you’ll get one.

We can’t wait to see you all in less than three weeks!

If you are willing to join us on one (or more than one!) of these panels, please e-mail us at We’re really close to finalizing our programming content, so the sooner you can let us know, the better.

See you all in just over three weeks!
