Consider this some innovative blog promotion, create a fun name for your new political blog “Obama is the New Black“, create a t-shirt based on it, send it out to some t-shirt bloggers, get some incoming links and some new readers, and maybe sell a couple of t-shirts. Hey, i’ve got a soft spot for bloggers, it’s often a thankless task, so although the t-shirt won’t win any design or fashion awards it deserves a plug and a bit of the famous “tcritic bounce”
On a side note, Elizabeth who writes the blog is a writer and actor and performs at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater in NYC (Damn, I loved that show, Oh Amy Poehler do you even know I exist ) and even created a little youtube skit to promote the blog as well.
I’ve known about this site for a while, but until today was not compelled to post about it, i’m afraid this one did it for me. I don’t know where you can buy the shirt, but i’m sure if you want the shirt you are probably a douchebag
We got giddy after watching that SNL skit about Project Runway this weekend and we keep telling each other “You’re a tickety-tack tranny hot mess, outta control super-tranny from Transylvania who is not apologizing for it.”
Well i’ve been waiting all week to post these because after I found Jordan’s web site, it promptly went down and was down all frikin week. Anyway, it’s back up and worth checking out, he’s a designer and artist and sells some pretty awesome prints on his site. He went to college pretty near where I grew up in the UK and now lives and works in London. Anyway, he’s only got two shirts right now but I hope to see more.
Oh, and yes there is a huge Amy Winehouse resemblance, which reminds me of this Amy Crackhouse shirt from LuckyThreadz
If you had suggested to me last year in September that you were going to start a t-shirt company just like threadless with community submitted designs that were voted on by the community I would have suggested you were misguided and probably should take up another line of work like knitting or dog walking. Well here we are 6 months later and we have a legitimate hit and if you are not trolling DesignByHumans (DBH) on a regular baisis you are missing out on some great stuff.
Thriving Ink is a pretty new t-shirt company which aims to put the artist front and center. Their initial line is a lineup of ten artists from all over the world including Indonesia, Brazil, Phillipines, Canada, Poland, and the US. The designs are all very different ranging from iconic design, to more art focused, some you will like and some you will not, but I do think there is something for everyone here. Anyway, for a new t-shirt company I give these guys props for spending some time and effort on the design of their web site, trying to highlight the artists (although you can’t see what artist did what on the home page of the shop, you can navigate by artist to see all their stuff), and by having a good selection out of the gate.
They suggested in their email to me that they were going to be rotating ten artists at a time to keep their brand fresh, but i’m not sure what they will do with the old lines, if they get retired or their is some kind of back catalogue.
Well the Game Developer Conference was just in San Francisco and it was an exciting time for where I work, which is Nokia, more specifically in the video game group, N-Gage. Anyway, I actually worked with a some of the folks there on producing some t-shirts that shirts that various people were wearing at the conference that contained an easter egg of sorts, the easter egg was the phrase “for the love of gaming”. If you go there right now you will be challenged with some pretty difficult video game trivia, and maybe some clues as to what this is all in aid of There’s also a song called “2D Died” to download from the awesome 8bitweapon.
On a side note big thanks to Chris at Revel Industries for help with the shirts and t-shirts, they even had to do a dress shirt Anssi Vanjoki who was giving the keynote at GDC.
I wonder if Helvetica is one of the most T-Shirted fonts ever? I love these new ones I found at Collapse Design, Helveticat tickled me immediatly, but Sex, Drugs, Helvetica, Bold is a brilliantly witty construction as well.
“is our children learning” is just delicious, i’m here stuck in the airport in NYC looking forward to be stuck in another one in London and this brought a smile to my face. What’s amazing is just how timeless these gaffs are, I think someone needs to start a “no president left behind program”.

Rumplo is a very nice community driven t-shirt collection with voting, profiles etc. Good filtering functionality by color, and nice combination of popular and upcoming on the front page. Sort of Digg for t-shirts
Duck With Glasses is a collection of t-shirt links and images, mostly affiliate driven, with some search features. If you know about the big t-shirt companies there is not a lot of new stuff here.
Another affiliate driven site with lots of t-shirts from the big companies, but with some community voting features. Not sure what was going on though as none of the outgoing links were working.
Both of the sites here that are primarily collections of affiliate links are ok, but if they wanted to be really successful I would suggest they build a widget that t-shirt bloggers could put in there side bar using their own affiliate codes, that way the blogger gets a bit of revenue and the directory can have an link built into the widget back to the main directory. Anyone trying to use affiliate links know what a frikin nightmare it is to try and build those links, and if you could automate the process (as they are already doing) I think bloggers would be all over it. In fact, build it to work for any affiliate products and millions of bloggers might take advantage, think about all those incoming links
As Rangga from the DailyTee.com I missed out Tfodder.com which IMHO is certainly one of the strongest designs. Looks like the site was put together by Deft Creative out of the UK so kudos to them, not sure if they did it as an experiment, portfolio piece or for a client? I wonder if they could help me redesign and add some features tcritic
