This one’s absolute gold for any England football fan who remembers the 1986 World Cup Quarter Final against Argentina.
You don’t even have to remember when – you just remember ‘the hand of god‘. The classic quote by Diego Maradona following his (less than) legal goal to put the first nail in the coffin of England’s final hopes.
The fact that Maradona then scored the goal of the century 4 minutes later is completely irrelevant!
This shirt by David Cumming nicely shows the hand ball a little more clearly than the TV footage too!
A great take on the Nike Air Jordan campaign of the same era.
David’s a die hard Falkirk fan, so football runs through his veins and his shirts. Check them out on Redbubble.
Some people do great vector designs, some people do great illustration with more ‘paint’ techniques. Some do great ‘comic’ style.
This t-shirt by Redbubble newcomer Hammo pulls all of those together amazingly well. Not only is the idea great, the characters are just so well drawn and styled. I’d almost go as far as to say – for what it is – it’s perfect.
MC Escher is an inspiration to countless creative people, partly for the genius in the detail, but also for the mathematical somersaults your mind does when you look at one of his images.
Zomboy produces some amazing designs, and this Escher ‘Relativity’ inspired vector shirt is also a stroke of genius. The limited colours just bring out the detail amazingly well, with the shapes and angles being pixel perfect.
The added bonus with this design is that each decorator is painting with revolutionary transparent paint, so choose your shirt colour (from the 20+ colours in the Redbubble pallette) and that’s what colour they’ll be painting. You’ll be a designer too!
Ever feel like you’re one of the crowd?
This shirt came from an idea of using the Photoshop Clone Stamp tool to make a pattern on a shirt.
It soon turned into a bit more of a social statement where the ‘dollar-chasing’ clones are walking an uphill tightrope on their quest for fulfillment, while down below are people enjoying a more simple existence.
The clone stamp may reappear in a slightly more ‘fun’ design in the future.
Diesel Laws is going places
The quality, inventiveness, and uniqueness of the designs really sets the brand apart from the crowd.
Now concentrating on audio-inspired shirts, Diesel’s found another great concept here and made it their own, with the trademark logo on the green light.
The colours, shapes and subject just make this shirt rock!

The Supermarine Spitfire is a legend of British military aviation.
This particular one won out over the closely matched Messerschmitt BF-109 and is on its way back to Blighty.
In reality the skill and bravery of pilots on both sides eclipsed the performance and technical differences between their aircraft.
This shirt’s for people who like to remember why they existed, or just appreciate beautiful engineering.
