Hide & Seek Champion since 1960 Semicolon - Black on Grey Programmer Humor

design on product

The semicolon was introduced as a statement terminator in the ALGOL 60¹ programming language, which first appeared in 1960². Since then the semicolon has caused programmers headaches and countless working hours, trying to fix bugs caused by missing semicolons or semicolons in places, where they should not be.

Not all programming languages use semicolons as statement terminators, but many do. So a lot of programmers will agree that the semicolon is a true hide and seek champion.

This design consists of the text pieces “Hide & Seek” and “since 1960” in a narrow font, “CHAMPION” in an all-caps font with the bottom edge curved upwards and “SEMICOLON” in an all-caps wider font and a big bold semicolon sign.

The texts are printed in black on a white background on different products, such as stickers, phone and tablet cases and laptop sleeves. For apparel such as shirts and hoodies different colors can be chosen, like the pre-selected heather grey color.

This design is also available in a white font for black and dark backgrounds here: http://www.redbubble.com/people/ramiro/works/18...
