THE CIRCUS SOCIETY
I am the Founder and Creative Director for The Circus Society. A collection of graphic tanks and tees for men and women. After graduating with a degree in Design, I haven’t stop my passion to design and create inspirational pieces of art work. Most of my art work is inspire by music, life, and my journey.
Andy: Founder AND Creative Director? Maybe I should start calling myself the Founder, Editor, CEO, and CFO of Hide Your Arms? Designs look pretty cool though.
Luminado Apparel ™ is A New T-shirt Line Coming Out of Danville, Virginia. I Started it a Few Weeks Ago, I am a Sixteen Year old High School Student That Has Big Dreams! I started this line because My Friends and I Kept Complaining About How T-shirts Never Came out to express our style, So I Decided To Do The T-shirts that Fit Us Myself. All Of My T-shirt, Tanks, & Baseball Ts Are $15, with Coupon Code:ZMBrand (If Ordered Must add Shipping Cost).
I have Item numbers and Item Names For All My Apparel which can be checked out On Facebook.com/LuminadoApparel or Istagram:@l.apparel_comingsoon! I would like for everyone to take a look at my shirts and help a young teenager follow His Dreams. Thank You all so Much!
Andy: If I had a pound for every brand that has submitted themselves with something along the lines of “we couldn’t find clothes we liked” I’d have a nice little pension fund going. I don’t really like the designs, the website doesn’t link to a server, I question the wisdom of putting ‘coming soon’ in your Instagram name, and I’d be surprised if they actually had a trademark on that name. I do still like to encourage teens starting a clothing line because I wish I had that kind of entrepreneurial spirit at their age, so good on them for trying and I’m sure it will be a great learning experience.
Retro Summer Breeze Tee! Free Shipping on all orders! No code needed!
Andy: I’m pretty sure that I’d look stupid in this shirt, but that guy actually looks pretty cool.
Can someone explain the Mr. Cleaner reference to me, I’ve tried to Google it but nothing is coming up. Both shirts are $14 this week instead of $19.99.
Milk are an interesting brand because the first time we saw them they had a hoodie with milk bottles on the drawstrings, that’s something that you don’t expect to see from a new brand, it’s a custom product, not just a design slapped onto an American Apparel garment while they’re getting a feel for the clothing world. Bearing that in mind, it’s hardly surprising that this Summer collection shows a similar polish and a bit of a change from the norm. Here’s what they had to say about it:
It features various garments which have been manufactured and printed to the best quality. Various printing techniques have been used including dye sublimation and up to 6 colour screen prints! Our designs also come back stronger with different patterns and illustrations such as “Cowmo” (camouflage mad from cows), a Froot Loops print and even a pop art inspired pin up girl. We have also added a really nice Chambray oxford shirt into the mix with a milk spill pocket detail.
Tees are £18 or £22, vests £14, and items from the last collection are on sale too so you can grab tees for as low as £8.
I love simple graphics and giving inanimate things personalities. Circle & Line is my attempt to put the two on the canvas of a T-shirt.
This one is for the rainy days. Alternatively, the sunny days when it is raining inside.
Andy: I really like stuff like this, it’s simple but really charming and just about anyone would be happy wearing it.
Sarah Bevan is a young designer and crafter based in Dublin, Ireland. She discovered tshirt design and crafting in college. Her love of all things nerdy means that her designs are bold, funny and usually featuring a pun or a fandom reference. She is a fan of strong lines, bold colours and pop culture references. Support Sarah into her foray as an artist on Designbyhumans.
My goal with art is to make people feel happy when they get a reference or see a pun and hopefully laugh and appreciate the humour and share it with their friends.
Give Back to the community:
The more profit that Sarah is able to accumulate, the more she can give to Gheel.ie, a not for profit Autism awareness project that helps adults with Autism in Dublin. She has run for them twice in mini-marathons aiding almost 250 euro for them and hopes to do more.
Andy: I can’t see that many people wanting to walk around with ‘Little Miss Incest’ written on their chest, but it is pretty funny.
OsoPorto is a line of t-shirts (and prints and other goods) now in its final week on Kickstarter. The line is loosely themed around the Southern California surf neighborhood of El Porto in Manhattan Beach.
El Porto, a small surfing neighborhood near LAX Airport, was a 10-block town of its own from 1911-1980. It still has its own character, if not its own borders. Celebrating everything from the beach to California’s signature bear with clean, modern, typographic designs, OsoPorto is a line of t-shirts, design prints, and other goods for those who know El Porto or just identify with its California spirit.
We are nearing our main funding goal on Kickstarter with just under a week to go. If we go beyond the goal and can hit our first stretch goal, two more designs are added to the line.
Check out all the details here: http://kickstart.osoporto.com
Andy: I’ve caught this one a little late since I was away for the weekend, but there’s still a few hours to get in on it if you like the designs. It’s a fairly local line though so I would imagine you need to feel some kind of attachment to El Porto to really ‘get’ the shirts, but they’re generally fine for non-locals too. They’ve already hit their Kickstarter target so if pledge you know the money will be leaving your account, which is always reassuring.

Hello my name is Jimmie Ward founder of “Dads Do It Too” an apparel company designed for the millions of involved dads in there children’s lives.. The company does not launch until the day after Mother’s Day 2015. But we have designed a special edition T-shirt to get the word out, which is Dads do it too “rock star dad” to kick things off, which is available via TeeSpring.
I am writing you because I would love for you to review our t-shirt and help get the word out.
My sincere thanks to any consideration given.
Jimmie L ward
Andy: Obviously, I can’t relate to this subject since I’ve got no kids, but what confuses me most is that the t-shirt at the link does not look like the one in the picture submitted, the picture we have here is pretty interesting whereas the linked one has a bit too much of a clip art feel to it. Then again, which a ’cause’ kind of shirt like this which is designed to highlight an issue the design work isn’t that important since it can be a bit more reliant upon emotion.
I’m a pastry chef from Virginia that loves to bake and inspire others to bake. Lil Tea’s Clothing will be a fun way for people to show their love of being a chef or wanna-be chef! These colorful design follow the adventures of Lil Tea and her pastry assistant, Whisk. Whisk is a fun-loving monkey who’s got skills in the kitchen. Whenever they have to solve a problem they come up with out-of-the- box solutions. Like turning into ninjas to destroy the dish monster, because a sink or dishwasher is too ordinary! Check out my kickstarter and make this fun clothing line a reality.
Andy: I don’t want to be the person to tread all over someone’s dream, but I do think that these designs are lacking a professional polish that would be able to turn casual observers into pledgers. As it is at the moment it’s the kind of project that relies a lot on friends and family pledging to encourage a loved one.
Both Doctor Who and Non-who grab bags available today at TeeFury.

Bored of the usual brands? Wear LLAMA. Why?
The word LLAMA begins with two ‘L’s
High quality clothing
Be different (until everyone is wearing LLAMA… then don’t)
Make friends easily
High quality printing
A LLAMA is a great animal (and friend)
Free shipping anywhere
More designs to be released depending on the success of the campaign.
Andy: This is kinda funny, but something tells me if you like it you should get on it ASAP before Puma lay a legal hammer down on them. That said, I would be surprised if they were able to get €20,000 of funding for what are essentially one colour tee prints.
Not a bad couple of tees, but I don’t think I’ll be laying any cash down for them.
Support a Young Artist:
Noemie Tshinanga is a young designer and photographer based in Athens, Georgia. She discovered photography and design early in her life. As many may have experienced, art pushed her to be bold. This shirt, shapes, exemplifies the boldness we are all capable of with its bright colors and strong lines. Support Noemie in her first foray into fashion as art: noemie-marguerite designs.
Vision: “Make something amazing, something that’s terrifying to you. Stay uncomfortable. Fight the flinch wherever you see it…”
Give Back to the Arts:
10% of all the proceeds from noemie-marguerite designs will support the local arts scene in Athens, Georgia. Athens has been a home to numerous artists including REM, Neutral Milk Hotel, James Pensoldt, and more. This shirt will benefit Cine Athens, a non-profit arthouse theatre that supports the arts in Athens (see Cine’s work: http://www.athenscine.com).
The Product: black American Apparel unisex tee // black Hanes women’s Nano-T v-neck
Andy: To be honest it doesn’t really appeal to me, there’s nothing wrong with it at all, it’s just not my style, but I would certainly welcome Noemie to submit something again.
