It’s been about six months since I made a tee post about err… T-Post. A few days ago they sent me a tee to review. I don’t think too much has changed over their since then except for the addition of a few new tees including the latest one which is currently sitting on my desk. At first I didn’t really know what the design was, I suspected it was some type of cake but when you step back you can clearly see that it is a skull design. A pretty cool skull design at that.
The article on (the inside of) the t-shirt is about filesharing and the design of the skull is connected to the pirate imagery. Get it? It was designed by Siggi Eggertsson, who apparently gets around (as a designer) and his work has been part of everything from Dazed and Confused, Wallpaper, Wired Magazine (my personal favorite) and The New York Times, to numerous international music projects. Pretty high profile.
Let’s get back to the article on the inside of the t-shirt for a second. What is the point of it really? It’s on the inside and nobody can see it. Perhaps the guys at T-Post think that the news they are peddling is very important and that the t-shirt designs reflect the news and people will ask the wearer about them. The wearer need not worry about forgetting what it means because they can just whip it off when someone asks and read it. Or, they could just wear it inside out…
