random objects





I’m sure that one day Random Objects are going to make a shirt I don’t like, but this is most certainly not that day today.

I have run out of good things to say about Random Objects… so I’d better Shakespeare it and just make some stuff up…. their designs are magnifilicious!

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.

Post image for Part Two of Random Object’s F/W2012 Release is predictably impressive.




Oh wow, I think we can all agree that the “the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts” is a pretty fantastic tee, right? The rest of the release isn’t too shabby at Random Objects either.

Post image for Part 1 of Random Objects Fall Release brings two new tees and a re-issue.



Random Objects must be one of the most consistently excellent brands out there, there’s nothing in their store that I wouldn’t happily wear. Front and back print for the re-issued Underpaid/Ovrworked shirt works really nicely. Expect more from them soon, apparently involving sweatshirts, which makes sense now that there’s a chill in the air.

New Product from Random Objects!

by Heather Abbott on August 3, 2012

Random Objects released some new tees and a print that all live up to the expectations of the brand.

Random Objects produces designs that play on the relationship between literal and visual language. Generally, when t-shirt brands try to tackle typographic designs, they can turn out kitschy or juvenile. However, Random Objects does it on an elevated level, keeping designs classic and minimal and exploring old proverbs. The typefaces are bold, mostly sans serif, or cleanly handwritten without the overexposed Contino effect.

These new products are now available in the Random Objects online shop. For a limited time, you can also use the discount code – HOTSALE – for 20% off your entire order. Good deal for some great product!

Random Objects ring in the summer

by Chris_S on June 9, 2012

Post image for Random Objects ring in the summer

I’ve just spent a weekend in a caravan in Wales, and though it rained solidly for one day, the other two days were bright, sunny and almost Mediterranean. That can mean one thing: it’s summer time.

Of course, the weather can be unpredictable, so it’s much better to rely on Random Objects’s summer line release. We’ve written extensively in the past about this brand, and regular readers will know we’re a fan. Luckily the Summer ’12 releases (or rather, the first part as the press release we were sent teases) look to validify our good faith.

‘Be Polite’ (up top, $24) is a great example of a strong typographic tee. In a bright blue, the white text really stands out and it’s the little details such as the highlighting of the “and” which really separates this from the sort of thing you can pick up for ten bucks on Cafepress. It also preaches a good motto too: if I could, I’d be asking Random Objects very poliltely if they’d let me do a wear test on this design.

The other three designs are a little less strong to my eyes, but are nonetheless something which would fit well in any wardrobe. I’m not a fan of tank tops, but for those who are ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’ ($20) would be a great buy. It’s the sort of thing you’d wear in Instagrammed photos with the sun streaking across the sky behind you.

‘A Sailor’s Life’ ($24) looks like a shirt you’d buy in a high-end department store (which isn’t meant as a slight) and has an inspirational message; ‘Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing’ ($24) is a smart play on the age-old turn of phrase which is equal parts cute and scary. Most importantly, I can imagine wearing all of them with some shorts while padding along the beach. Summer is here people! Enjoy it!

build bridges not walls t-shirt



I like the new ‘Build Bridges‘ design from Random Objects, it may be simple, restrained, and just a one-colour print, but it’s the kind of shirt that I really like to wear. Good to see Origami Pigeon make a return too, even if it’s just for a short time as when it sells out it won’t be making a return, and that bag looks pretty nifty too, though not the kind of thing that I’d buy.

knowledge t-shirt

I like the way that Random Objects create their shirts based upon inspiring phrases, with this particular phrase coming from the mouth of a Mr. John Naisbit (hopefully I’ve linked the correct guy).

They also recently released Carpe Diem in a spiffy green colorway, Underpaid as a tank top, and CMYK has been brought out of retirement. That should be enough to make a nice dent in your bank account.

wolf in sheeps clothing t-shirt

If you’re thinking that design is familiar you would be correct, it has previously been released by Random Objects printed onto a white shirt, but that isn’t nearly summery enough, so here it is on a lemon/yellow tee. I think that they will be releasing tees on a more regular basis through summer by the sounds of their e-mail, though I’m not sure if there will be any new designs or it will be reprints on more colourful shirts.

peace is simple t-shirt

The quote that inspired this shirt (many of Random Objects designs are based on quotes) was “Peace is not something you wish for; it’s something you make…” by a gentleman called Robert Fulghum, and you know what, he’s probably right, like most things in life you have to do something to make something happen.

architect t-shirt

After a few days off (off HYA, I worked 27 hours on Monday and Tuesday, boy am I tired!), what better way to return to regular posting than with this stunning t-shirt from Random Objects. I really look forward to receiving an e-mail from them each month or so, because I know that there’s going to be digital gold contained in it. They really have been consistently excellent for a long time now, and this t-shirt quoting Sir Francis Bacon certainly doesn’t break that tradition of releasing cool tees with kinda-inspirational quotes on them.

all work and no play t-shirt

I certainly felt like I was always working over the past couple of weeks, even on my day off yesterday I was still busy. That’s the nature of the beast though, you never really turn off because someone can always get in touch with you.

Destination NYC by Random Objects

by Andy on December 6, 2010

destination NYC t-shirt by random objects

The idea behind thisshirt comes from a quote, as many of the shirts from Random Objects do, “In New York City, every street is its own city and every borough a nation.” That, apparently, is an original quote from Anthony Simpson, who runs Random Objects, so in this instance he wasn’t being inspired by someone else’s words when coming up with the design. To a degree I agree with him, walking around New York (I’ve only visited Brooklyn twice so can’t really comment on the Boroughs) it is amazing just how quckily things can change from street to street. Chinatown is probably thr strongest example of this, as I feel parts of it are really similar to parts of Hong Kong, and then a couple of minutes walk away you’re in Little Italy, which is just such a strange transition, but it certainly does mean good noodles for lunch and good gelato for dessert.

pigeons love new york t-shirt


I’ve written about both shirts bfore (probably, I do like their designs), so I’m not going to cover that ground before, Random Objects makes some great looking shirts, and whilst I’m not that bothered about the pigeon tee switching from white to grey, I really like the way the vision test tee pops on black instead of white (even if it does move it away from the actual eye test look which is of course on a white background). Both tees are $21 and come with a ‘random object’.

what goes aound comes around t-shirt by random objects

You know what? Random Objects might just be one of the best indie tee companies out there. Look at the selection of tees that they have available, there is a definite lack of suck-itude, and a wheelbarrow filled with awesome packed in there, and this tee is pretty damn sweet too.

lion for a day t-shirt by random objects

I read the quote on this shirt and I was all like “yeah, fuck yeah!” and then about two seconds later I realised that being a metaphorical lion is sooo much harder than being a metaphorical sheep. Sure, I try not to let the crowd influence me too much, but sometimes lots of people are doing the same thing because it’s a good thing to do, no need to be a lion about it and rip their throats out for enjoying grass.

…. I don’t get the quote.
