Another site in the vein of Threadless and DesignbyHumans has entered the arena. Desired Hearts. How are they any different? “With every shirt you order we’ll give at least $2 to the charity of your choice. Why? Because its the right thing to do.”
I like seeing this sort of thing, and would love to see them succeed. The site is brand spankin’ new (still beta in fact) so that’s a heads up for all you designers – Get over there before every other kid with their finger on the halftone filter does.
Aled Lewis is one of those illustrators you are secretly jealous of because his designs get chosen to be made into shirts on Threadless and designbyhumans over and over again. Would you like me to tell you why that is? It’s because the designs you’re submitting are ones that have already been rejected by other clients and you’re just trying to make some money off of them in a last ditch effort! Aled’s designs, on the other hand, are all well-thought out, brilliantly detailed, illustrations actually worth buying!
Not too long ago Zoo York ran a little viral campaign with a box full of spray-painted cockroaches. They just revealed the Cockroach Artist Series boards that accompany the campaign, and they’re some of the better board graphics I’ve seen in a long time. This is mainly due to the fact that I am a big fan of Greg Lamarche! I love his hand-lettered signs.
