“As a designer and visual artist it’s essential to develop a style and to go your own way. With this Shirt I just wanted to keep that in mind and combine it with two other things I realy like: Good typography and T-Shirts. I hope you like my typework on this Shirt!”
I like vinyl toys and have a few sitting on top of my PC tower, but I’m not that into the whole culture of it. Pobber on the other hand, they just can’t get enough, so they have celebrated this with a shirt riffing on the iconic ‘make peace not war’ slogan. Pretty cool!

Andy: What an unusual name, thanks for the submission!
I probably wouldn’t wear the 99 Problems shirt released this week at Snorg, but it did make me smile and that’s a lot more than most ‘funny’ shirts do. Generally solid week of releases, there’s some fun stuff here.
We asked four of our favorite type guys — Ale Paul, Neil Summerour, Corey Holms, and Grant Hutchinson — to create a hand-lettered T-shirt for TypeCon 2013. We love that each shirt reflects their individual style and personality. It’s a little bit of them, on you (but not in a creepy way).
And you can save 40% on any or all of them by entering offer code LETTERING13 at checkout.
The good news? The offer code is valid right through December 31, 2013.
On the Internet today: a supercut mixtape of the most iconic t-shirts to grace the Silver screen. The edit includes some memorable faves — Vote For Pedro, Nigel’s Green Skeleton tank top from This Is Spinal Tap, the so-called Shark Cat design from Pineapple Express — but is carefully leavened with some curious artifacts of the slogan variety from the ’80s.

Looks like Publik are on a bit of a run, releasing two text tees in as many days, and this time around I don’t have to get on my high horse to tell them why they’re entitled to their views but are also very wrong.
Regular readers will notice that I have stopped doing the daily roundup of t-shirts from places like TeeFury and RIPT. It’s not that I don’t like those sites anymore, it was just an awful lot of work for not a lot of return, and there’s only so many times I can complain about ridiculous mashups without getting very bored. So it’s actually kind of a pity that as soon as I stop with those posts along comes a shirt-a-day site that is offering something a bit different.
Quoted Tee shun the usual pop culture references, instead selling a different typographic t-shirt every day and from what I have seen so far the quality level has been high. Shirts are $11 for the first 24 hours, but are available beyond that for $21, so even if you miss out first time around you’ll still be able to pick up a shirt.
Fingers crossed that this site can stand the test of time instead of falling by the wayside as many other shirt-a-day sites have done. It is a side-project of the Wear Viral team so hopefully that is a positive sign, since all their eggs aren’t in one basket.
I’m running out of good things to say about Random Objects, they are easily in the top 5 brands that I like (I don’t have a real list, but you know what I mean). Luckily for us, this is just the first part of their Spring collection, so I’m looking forward to the next lot of goods arriving sooner rather than later. Tees are $24 each.
Ideal T-shirts for anyone with a sense of humour who isn’t afraid to look and feel FRESH. Our T-shirts come in a number of colours and sizes. We also ensure they are top quality and affordable!
In addition you have the option of uploading your own design and if we like it we will feature it on our website and we will give you a ton of free stuff! check us out on www.sorryimfresh.com
Andy: Possibly the most student oriented line I’ve ever seen. Personally I’d prefer it if their name wasn’t on each design, or the branding was a bit more subtle, but that’s a choice they’ve made.
A week or so back I received a T-Shirt from Known. Ironically they were not Known to me, safe to say though I now am thoroughly informed. They certainly give off the impression of a well designed and made brand especially since they were only established in 2012, so I have high hopes for 2013 and onwards.
The Tee I received ‘All Day Every Day‘ which is probably a slogan for their company as I’m sure they work round the on polishing their brand, I definitely commend them on their efforts so far. It’s a nice grey tee with a lovely printed All Day Every Day in two colours one shadowing the other and an accompanying Known Logo which is simple but effective. It’s available in 3 different colours too which is nice. I’m not certain on who the tee is actually manufactured by as they have removed the previous tags and put their own Known tag inside – which is always a nice touch, the quality of the garment is decent however I’ve received better tees in the past but this certainly could stand up against anything on the high street. The screen printing on the garment looks a tad thick so I’m concerned about whether it will crack in the future as I have only washed it a few times since receiving it, but saying this the thickness of it really does make it pop.
If I’m going to be honest I’m not a huge fan of the design, while the font work and everything is beautifully crafted I can’t foresee it being a troublesome design to create compared to others out there. Especially at almost £30.00 I personally wouldn’t buy it in shop, but that’s just me – I resent paying anything for tee’s really! However it seems that a lot of tees nowadays do cost upwards of that and more, the choice is yours as the consumer really. I don’t want to sound like I’m really beating down on this brand because I’m not. I just think on occasion some companies need a bit of a reality check to a certain degree. While I have been somewhat negative about this tee I do like it because it goes well as a tee that you wear with a zip hoodie, it’s understated but effective at the same time.
Overall Known look to be a well polished brand and really do give off a more established brand vibe but personally I think they need to give their designs a little bit more of a kick to it. I know on certain occasions I do think less is more, but as a consumer I’d like to feel that someone’s heart and soul has gone into a design (well maybe not that far) but I just feel Known need to give people more of a reason to want to buy their stuff. Let us know what you think in the comments section, I’d be interested to hear peoples opinions. Certainly don’t forget to check out Known’s website either and check out their other merchandise.
