New shirts and a new site from OMUNKY

walrus t-shirt



Let’s be honest, a t-shirt store haven’t a new site isn’t massive news, as someone who has experienced the redesign process from the inside numerous times I know it feels like the most important thing in the world, but unless you’re Facebook you’re never going to get a massive amount of feedback or excitement even though you spent days and days obsessing over the tiniest pieces of code.

Their new site is an improvement, it looks nicer than the last version and there have been a load of new features introduced (faster checkout, new payment options, and a rewards programme).

New tee ‘Wet Walrus’ is gorgeous, definitely my favourite shirt that they’ve ever released, I love the colourway and the use of negative space is just gorgeous. The other release is ‘MUNKY Tree‘ which regular readers will notice isn’t new at all but actually a reprint that has been tweaked a bit. I like the idea of artists going back to older designs and giving them a refresh, there’s no point in being nostalgic about tee designs when people feel they can improve on them if their own talents have improved.

New from Fuzzy Ink: I Am The Walrus

by Andy on January 6, 2010

 

 


One of the things that having my own shirts printed has taught me (they were shipped last week, incidentally, should be here any day now) is just how important colour, and the amount of colours used is to a design. Sure, before I thought that a colourway might look nice, but it’s hard to appreciate just how much a designer is expected to do with such a small palette. In this case the entire image is made of three colours, two printed and the base of the shirt, and yet it feels like so many more. I’m not a bealtes fan as I’ve mentioned before, much to some people’s disgust, but even I recognise this iconic song, and whilst you don’t really need the reference to enjoy the shirt it does add a certain something.

AITA have dropped a new tee and it is a shout-out to a music blog from Philly that apparently has really big teeth. As I’ve mentioned before this week, I’m a bit pushed for time writing posts, so I’m going to hand you over to the rather eloquent folks at AITA to do the job for me.

Art In The Age Creative Director Ben Woodward gives a shout out to Philly’s music blog with really big teeth, The Walrus.( http://www.walrusmusicblog.com) The big, music loving personality of this oversized and lovable friend of the sea is expressed perfectly in Ben’s larger-than-life illustration. Available in two color palettes: “Lo Fi” Gray-on-Gray or “Experimental” Turquoise-on-Turquoise”

The tees will be available in men’s sizes Small-Large for $28 and will be released tomorrow [oh, sorry, guess I probably should have posted this yesterday…]. Art in the Age will also be giving away 3 tees to 3 lucky winners in the next 3 weeks!

I’d usually think that grey on grey is the blandest colourway possible, but its actually pretty cool in this case.
