Hey Everyone! Last week Threadless released a 16-shirt collection of designs by ME! They came all the way to Portland to throw a launch party and film this little spot about me! Coolness overload!
When the below “Beatles” shirt was designed by Experimental Jetset in 2001 it was indeed an innovative and awesome new rendition of a “band” shirt.
People have a tendency of re-using innovative ideas until there is no innovation left. That is certainly the case with the Beatles tee. A version has been done of every band you can think of and rip-offs of the design have spread like a virus. This is probably also due to the fact that all you really need to design it is a word processor. Anyway, I’ve been thinking if it would be possible to reverse a trend like this. That’s how I came up with the design below.
Click on the above image to give me your vote! If I win my shirt will be printed and sold at Gap stores across the country! Cool!
