5 designs I love at Design By Humans
Okay, I didn't quite like Robot Attack, but I thought Design By Humans deserved a second chance, so I decided to check out their latest design submissions. And I was pleasant surprised to find pretty nifty stuff in there, despite my initial doubts about their ability to attract good designs. Here are 5 designs I absolutely loved and voted for. Don't forget these t-shirts still don't exist,  so don't forget to vote (teeocracy..).



#1 - The Ultimate T-shirt

This was my first idea for the header of Teelovers, a design that synthesized almost all of the most iconic t-shirts and tendencies. The problem was and is, I'm not a designer, so it never left the drawing board (thankfully, Isa was around and agreed to design Teelovers).

Anyway, here's the description of the shirt: "Irony, nostalgia, skulls, robots, 45 degree arrows, Che and a smoking unicorn wearing aviators - this tee has it all."

That's why you are bound to like it. The design is called The Ultimate T-shirt and it needs your vote to get printed. If you like it (how can't you? seriously?) go for it.

Oh, look, it even has a "Vote for Pedro" in it... oh, I think I might be in love with this t-shirt...

(Joe, it has a robot too!)




#2 - My Hood

This one is My Hood and features a bunch of strange but cute creatures. I like everything about this design. It even gets the background color right.



#3 - Crayola Disparity

I don't know if I qualify as a "sophisticated surrealist", but if wearing this t-shirt turns me into one, I'm definitely having it :P



#4 - 3-D! Lightning storm

It's 3-D, people! How much cooler can it get?

4-D?

(it even comes packaged with a pair of Design By Humans branded 3D glasses for "extra awesomeness!" Yeah!)



#5 - Bow Master

You can always spot an awesome design at first sight. This is it.

Threadless-watch: Snake on a shirt


This is Snake on a tshirt, which Sa' d Khorsid submitted to Threadless two months ago. The design was scored a mere 2.40 out of 5 points by more than 2000 people, who left a total of 55 comments. I just can't understand how this amazing tee wasn't voted for printing by the Threadless masses. It's been on my wishlist since the first day I saw it. Oh, teeocracy, you disappoint me.

Threadless in The New York Times


Threadless was the subject of the Times column Consumed, Mass Appeal, which discusses the workings of the Threadless tee-ocracy and its appeal:

"The casual viewer of Threadless.com cannot help being struck by the surprising degree of consistency — maybe even similarity — in the designs. “It’s a barometer of what’s going on in art and design right now,” Kalmikoff suggests. He likens it to a school of fish moving in a particular direction until a new leader suddenly emerges, everything shifts in that direction and somehow the crowd arrives at something close to an aesthetic."
