It’s been a while since I’ve done any new designs, but with the new Skyfall Bond film imminent, I thought I’d dust off an idea I’d had quite some time ago, and was surprised I hadn’t seen done anywhere else.
I’m a bit of a fan of infographics, and this one could jokingly be used to inform your bar staff of your cocktail preferences. Maybe there’s a series in here somewhere?
Any design that simply tells you to ‘remember your zombie training’, is definitely worth a look. I like more or less everything about this:
The almost ‘cute’ figures on the shirt, the geometric shapes (that wins me over straight away). the excellent use of negative space to make the shadows (and blending in to the defined edges on the floor).
The background colour is also a great choice to showcase the design, as it again softens the whole thing – making the caption even funnier, as you just think you’re looking at some regular infographic.
Get your skates on mate! As far as most devotees are concerned, there’s only one version of the Italian Job. There’s many subtle (and not so subtle) signs of the times in 1968 europe, as Michael Caine leads the somewhat rag-tag bunch of boys on the ‘big’ job in Turin. This shirt just highlights the mantra of the film, and the stars of the show – the three Mini Cooper’s used by the lads as they try to evade the police and the mafia in one the most original and entertaining car chases in film history.
When the colour of a shirt meets the concept of the design, and it works this well you have to just sit back and look at it. This fantastic idea, concept and style by Japu leads you in with the boots, treading oh so lightly on the water’s surface. You then realise that this is someone on a mission, and they’re looking at ‘you’.
It’s cool and cute at the same time (like so many of Japu’s designs). Love it!
I think if I were standing under the end of a rainbow I’d be this this freaked out too. Not only would you be a bit peeved that there’s no pot of gold, but you’ve also ruined your best outfit. Indigo’s a real pain to get out!
If you’re a visitor or a local to Melbourne, trams are an icon part of the city scenery. From the heritage trams like this one, right up to the bumblebee ones with ‘simulated’ bells.
I wanted to draw something that struck me as ‘Melbourne’ without getting too contrived. This (being a tram) isn’t typically ‘cool’ or ‘creative’ as such. Just my vector interpretation of a Melbourne icon. Great to show the world where you’re from (or where you’ve been).
There’s also a black and white alternative if you don’t like wearing the colours.
I’m a creative geek living in Melbourne, Australia who writes software by day, and creates T-shirts and other designs by night. This is all of course when time and motivation allows.
It’s probably accurate to say I dabble in things other than software to keep my creative side happy. I was always a keen musician (guitar, drums and keyboards) but am now happy to dream of the ‘greatness’ I never achieved. I may surprise myself yet… I might also get round to finishing my list of gig attendances one day.
I like to take pictures of things that interest me, and am becoming and increasingly keen photographer.
I occasionally write technical articles, produce the odd bit of freeware, and record technical thoughts on my Codebureau blog. Anything left may end up on this blog – but that's rapidly turning into my world of T-Shirts!
