MARSHALL by Daisy Gam.
Thought we would use the Tumblr to show you a little of the process we go through sometimes to get from idea to t-shirt. This one is probably the most meta design we have and will ever do; meta is soooo 2012.
This design was part of our 2012 Spring/Aummer drop. As the brand is called The Illustrated Mind we really wanted to have a couple of ‘thinkers’ in the mix. Prior to the design we plumped for two (Marshll McLuhan / Buckminster Fuller) and went from there.
That Facebook movie The social network had just come out (look) and the poster and the whole notion of facebook seemed to relate in some part to Marshalls famous line ‘The medium is the message’. Taking that as a subtle nod we got pencil genius Daisy Gam to HB the hell out of a mock-up we sent her. Then we printed that on a tee thus make a social comment on the notion of what you wear as a t-shirt always purveying some kind of message while referrring to a movie about social interaction thus making it the MOST meta t-shirt anyone will ever, ever do. Phew!
We also reprinted it later in a nice salmon colour.
