Design a T-Shirt for Gay Participation in the Olympic Games

Contest Brief

I want a t-shirt that reads "To Russia With Love," making the text style and image inside the letter "O" very much like the design of the movie poster attached, but not an exact copy to avoid copyright issues. I also want the characteristic 5 Olympic rings, but in a different way. The 5 interlocking rings are trademarked. I still want the 5 rings, but only interlock the left top and bottom to each other, the middle top and bottom to each other, and the top left and top middle to each other. The left top and bottom should be the symbol for gay men, two interlocking male symbols. The middle top and bottom should be the symbol for gay women, two interlocking female symbols, and the remaining ring should be the symbol for transgendered people. I've attached examples of all images. I'd like no more than 2 colors, perhaps red and black. One color is also OK.

    I'm ready for the final previews, could you confirm that the size and positioning on #8 is exactly what you want.
    I only ask because I've posted a few variations.
    Secondly.... were you considering a design on the back of the t-shirt as well ?
    thanks.

    On #10 I've made the From Russia with Love" message a bit more subtle ;) , emphasis on the symbolic.

    On #9 I've switched the rings and text position to mimic the "official" Olymic t-shirt better.
    On the black and white version I've used outlines on the Transgen symbol to reduce clutter and make the rings stand out more.

    I initially didn't think direction mattered, because I don't want it to be cluttered. But then I question whether it would be as "obvious" if direction was any which way. The non-interlocking rings should be spaced apart but still look like the Olympic rings. As far as the bisexual symbol, I'm not sure what that is, but we only have 5 rings to work with.

      Ok, understood, I've posted my design, let me know of any alterations you can think of. The design is done it's all a matter of tweaking the gender symbols for final result.
      Let me know if you want to see more colour variations.

    Hi cantormel , hope this isn't a dumb question, but does it matter which direction the arrow and plus symbols are facing ?
    I'm trying to avoid cluttering and the thought crossed my mind. :)

      also would you like the bi-sexual symbol incorporating into the design ?

    ...by facing I mean "pointing".
