Review: Design By Hümans Collective

by Matt on February 8, 2013

Post image for Review: Design By Hümans Collective

The DBH Collective was launched a few months ago and is now in full swing. According to it’s tagline from their site, the collective is: “Tees that illustrate your lifestyle, by a group of epic artists from around the globe, printed on whatever color you’d like.” It is exactly that, and more.

For as long as I’ve been following the online graphic t-shirt world, which is almost five years now, I’ve always considered Design By Hümans to be one of the best players in the game. Super soft and comfortable tees, incredible artwork from all the best artists, and massive screen prints that are executed perfectly. What more could you want?

More designs on more colors, obviously. And the DBH Collective is giving you just that. When it first rolled out, there were about 20 different artists included in the collective. Now there are over 55! I haven’t counted how many designs each artist has in their store, but the total number is surely a lot. And each of those being available on multiple different colors make the possibilities endless.

The Creative Directior of DBH, Mr. Craig Watkins aka Wotto, was nice enough to send me some samples of this new collective to check them out for this review. I’ll admit that I definitely had my doubts when DBH first announced they were doing DTG printing. As I mentioned, I consider them one of the best when it comes to screen printing, so I kind of thought it was a step down for them to start with DTG. But not surprisingly, they pulled it off bigger and better than anyone else. The shirts I received are easily the best DTG prints I’ve ever seen.

The first shirt I received was “The Baboon” by Mr-Nicolo. This bold and colorful print came to me on a black 100% cotton DBH Premium Tee. While I mentioned that the DBH Collective designs are all available on multiple colors, there are a few exceptions and this is one of them. The Baboon is only available on black. I would assume it’s probably because it doesn’t look as good on other colors, and further, the design itself contains a few of the colors that they offer for other DBH Collective pieces. Regardless, it looks great on black and the print is huge. As you can see, it takes up almost the entire front of the tee. Granted, I do wear a small and they probably don’t make the prints bigger for larger sizes, but that is a possibility. I’ll have to find out. Not only is the print big, but super soft. Even softer than a standard screen print, because of the DTG process they’re using for this collection.

The next shirt I received was a piece by wotto himself, “An Ode To Wild Things 2″. This design depicts two characters from a book (and now a movie) we’re all familiar with. The main character Max, in his boat, atop one of the wild things! This one was sent to me on a turquoise shirt, which I think was the perfect choice for this beautiful illustration. Again, the print is very large and super soft.

So if it wasn’t obvious, I highly recommend checking out the DBH Collective. Tons of never-before-seen designs on new colors, and you get to choose what combination you like. Wotto and the huge group of awesome artists over at Design By Hümans are always doing new and great things, and this is just another one to add to the list. What will they come up with next?

Design By Hümans launches the DBH Collective

Post image for Design By Hümans launches the DBH Collective

Design By Hümans has just announced their newest project, the DBH Collective. This select group of artists and designers all have their own personal store front at designbyhumans.com that includes never before seen designs on a wide range of colors.

How do they do that you ask? Direct to Garment printing. For those unfamiliar, DTG printing is a more cost effective way to print a one-off shirt. So if the customer wants design X on shirt color Y, DBH will use their DTG printers to do such without the more expensive and longer process of screen printing. DTG printing essentially uses a modified inkjet printer to print the design directly onto a t-shirt. The biggest time saver is that all the colors are printed at once as opposed to separate screens for each color when screen printing.

This is a great opportunity for artists and fans alike, the artists being able to showcase more of their designs (and on different color shirts) and the fans being able to buy them. What’s missing? Those gigantic all over prints that we’ve come to love from DBH. The DTG printing does limit the size and placement of the artwork, so the majority of the designs have a front-center placement with a limited print size. Though, according to some discussion at the DBH Forum, the photos in the Collective stores are only mock ups and the actual prints are much larger. The photos below are of actual prints from DBH Collective designs, not mock ups.

In the coming weeks, I will be receiving and reviewing some shirts from the DBH Collective. I’m very curious to see them, being a huge fan of DBH and their very much above average screen printing abilities.
