This was a rejected proposal for a T-shirt design based on the theme of “imaginary exploded view”. T-Shirts are to be given away at some kind of event. The team said “go crazy with it”, and I did. Then they decided to go with exploded views of regular products.
How would you take this T-shirt graphic as an IDer?
Personally, I will find it amusing. Maybe that’s just me.
That should be on a T-shirt. Print’em up man… (I do think the line value contrast could be pushed a bit more though first, I’m thinking of how it will look with white ink printed on like a brown or olive colored tee) American apparel makes great blank tees.
Ask them if you can have the design that they didn’t approve. If they really don’t like it, it’ll probably be okay. Then, take all the sketches, drawings, etc, so that they have no real record of it and go make your T-shirts. Sell them and make some money on stuff they thought was not okay to print.
Look, I’ve never been partial to T-shirt graphics to begin with so I’m never a good judge of things like this. But I do know that others have offered favourable words and you originally designed it to go on a T, so why not try to commercialize it.
I think it’s a great idea…nicely illustrated, and more importantly funny. I’d buy one, and I’m sure some designer mates would appreciate them as xmas gifts/bdays. It wouldn’t necessarily have to be just t-shirs - mugs, mouse mats, or even designer vinyl toys (that’d be cool)…lol
i just had to comment that as i am reading this post i happen to be wearing one of the exploded pencil sharpener shirts. my favoritye part is where it warns against sharpening cheese sticks… that was a close one
BTW tomorrow is my last day of my internship. They will get a special good bye email…
This is a very special good bye email…!
Sorry for the spam but I just want thank you all for the great experiences I have had here. It’s great to be working with the best and most talented people around and I admire your professionalism and passion for everything you do. Since the start of college, the speed of life seems to be in a constant fast forwarding mode for me. Each time I look back, I always find a new outlook towards school, career and life. It’s progressive and my experience in Continuum has helped me realize what is important to me and what I really want. Although I don’t yet know what I am going to do in the future, I am sure that the experience in Continuum has already made it better.
