It may be safe to suggest that I have an addiction to t-shirts. It may be even safer to suggest that I enjoy well designed t-shirts at a cheap price. Well, thanks to the one year anniversary of Design By Humans, a online t-shirt community very similar to that of Threadless, well designed t-shirts at a cheap price are a realistic possibility until August 1st at midnight (shirts are starting around $12). There’s a great collection of designs that differ only slightly from the Threadless collection, but still appear just as respectable. Give their catalog a look through, you shall not be disappointed.

Luckily, I crossed Aled Lewis‘ website and found that I was familiar with his illustrations due to viewing his winning designs on Threadless. His illustrations remind me of my old Where’s Waldo books, which tended to play with the interaction between the characters and environment. His illustrations have taken the form of several Threadless t-shirts, so be sure to click around his site as well as cop a shirt or two if you love what you see.



Life of the Mind

The personality of Mark Owens’ graphic work seems so entertaining to me. I’ve featured his Zoo York boards which work so well has a cohesive collection and only feature a small portion of his graphic talent. The boards were also created with the help of Matt Owens aka Volume One, who offers a equally stunning portfolio of work. Be sure to check out both Life of the Mind (Mark Owens) and Volume One (Matt Owens) to satisfy your Graphic Design sweet tooth for the next few weeks.

Graphic designers…pay attention. Soft & Furry is offering us designers the opportunity to showcase our creative skills. Every week you have the opportunity to submit three logos designed around the project’s name, “Soft & Furry.” Each week a winner is chosen and after eight weeks of competition, a grand winner is chosen. The grand winner will have their logo featured on packaging, clothing and toys designed by the company. The contest is currently in its fifth week, but with three weeks left, there’s plenty of time to whip up three clever logos by the eighth week. Good luck!

I believe I have just fallen in love with the portfolio of Emil Kozak. I’m sure you will as well.

^ 123 Klan


^ Superdeux

I greatly admire the graphic work of both Superdeux and the 123Klan. As effective as their print designs are, I’m also very intrigued by the focus to expand their designs toward vinyl toys.

Johnny Cupcakes never seems to disappoint. It’s been quite awhile since I last spoke of the clothing line provided by Johnny, but upon visiting their store recently it seems they’re still up to providing some interesting t-shirt designs along with the limited edition t-shirts you see up above. Be sure to take a look at their blog and online store.



Creative Thought + Execution

Creative Thought and effective execution can quickly sum up the work provided by Arecraft. Arecraft is the site of Eli Horn, a 21 year old artist/designer who makes me feel as if I have my work cut out for me. Not only does the work exhibit a great understand of design, but the navigation of the site also offers a fluidity unlike most websites. Truly a magnificent collection of work at Arecraft that is a must see for all designers.



Dopest Designers (New School) Part 4: Plastic Kid

I’ve loved the work of Plastic Kid (aka Jakob Printzlau) for a long time now. He has a great sense for graphic elements and an effective utilization of these elements throughout a piece of work. He also offers some step-by-step images with certain projects so you can view the process. It’s a nice extra that many designers/artists don’t typically feature.

Concepts are somewhat easy to come by, but brilliant concepts are few and far between. Not only does Us provide a great amount of solid conceptualization on their site, but their execution is just as respectable. Unreal work provided by the London based design studio and absolutely worth a check.

*Be sure to check the detergent design up above on Us’ site.
