I'm back. I haven't posted in a very long while due to moving and lack of cable/internet, but here is my ferocious comeback.
Not a big one tonight, but I did come across a very cool website for those of you who really enjoy unique t-shirts. If you like a t-shirt that no one else has and will gain a lot of comments, check out this website, Threadless.
All of these t-shirts look like they are articulately designed by someone very creative. Imagine having that job--designing t-shirts for a living. These kind of t-shirts are very cool too. They are eye-catching and witty. Check them out.
When I was looking at the main website, threadless.com, the website dictates that Threadless is a community-based company that has an open-call for t-shirt design submissions. So I guess this company really opens itself up to upcoming artists who would like to make their artwork public. What a very cool idea. I love when people capitalize on creativity and spreading art.
If your design is accepted by the company, you win cash prizes. So why not try to submit a design? You could win $2,000, a $500 gift certificate to Threadless, and $500 each time the shirt is reprinted. I wonder how many submissions are actually received and how well this offer is followed through with.
Anyway, browse through the website or check out some t-shirts. It's well worth your viewing pleasure.
Here are some Threadless entries:
These designs are so good that they could be posters or hung as decorations somehow. Obviously not the funnier ones, but some are good enough to be artwork.
So, what do you think of Threadless designs and t-shirts?
