Now here’s a fresh take on t-shirt design! T-Post is a company that has taken a monthly magazine subscription and mashed it up with t-shirts. What does this mean exactly? It means when you sign up for a subscription (27 euro) you get a new shirt every month. Not only does it have a new illustration on the front, but if you turn the shirt inside out you get an article on the inside!
Larry Armstrong has informed me of a shirt he’s designed entitled “The Realm of Every Game” which is now available for purchase on shirt.woot. It’s got great illustration and the theme is right up my alley, poking fun at cliched level design of games current and past.
Light has always been really fascinating—the way it forms negative space, questions figure/ground relationships, and has such beautiful form. Fireworks, flashlights, sparklers, even fluorescent lighting—it changes the way we view things, what we can and cannot see.
I’ve recently had a request to take a look at a shirt from Pyrotechnic Display at Celebrations, or [...]
I recently mentioned a t-shirt site called Retro Campaigns. They just let me know that they are releasing a new line of shirts called “American Legends.” The designs on these shirts have an even more retro look to them, and feature classic campaigns such as Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and William Henry Harrison.
Another new t-shirt shop that I’ve been informed of is Emulsion Apparel. They feature designs from local artists in Boston and some of them are quite unique. They have the typical brand shirts with just their name on them but even those look really great. I don’t usually dig those types of shirts but in this case I can make an exception. Most of their designs are catered towards the skater culture with a heavy artistic tint.
I’ve recently been made aware of a very new t-shirt site called Made With Awesome and their designs are just as advertised! It was created by two frequent Threadless contributors. That style carries over into their designs, which feature extremely unique concepts that are expertly created.
Rose & Stephanie from Crywolf wanted me to write about a sale they are running on their newly released Halloween designs. It will only last until the 31st so if you’re interested you’ll need to get there fast as some of the designs are already sold out. They are all limited edition runs (as are all of their designs), so don’t delay!
Retro Campaigns is a t-shirt site that I’ve recently learned about and that I’m really liking. They have a political theme, with a heavy focus on memorable campaigns in American history. The shirts themselves have a great weathered look to them and are printed on high quality American Apparel shirts. They scream vintage, and if I didn’t know any better I would think they were the real deal. I wouldn’t be surprised if others think the same.
Shirts Taste Good is a new t-shirt site I’ve found that makes their designs entirely based on viral videos. It’s kind of a shame that I didn’t think of this myself. The built in audience for all of those videos are an automatic source of buyers for their products, as long as you can reach them. The good thing is that Shirts Taste Good makes shirts that are high quality, hand made, and hilarious.
