on 2012 8 comments

Wrap your eyes around these delicious t-shirt designs embracing typography.

Being ‘inspired’ is a word that gets thrown around the design room/office/school a lot, and can be easier said than done. I can remember my first major graphic design job within the surf/board riding industry. I was blown away by just how talented everyone was, it was humbling and also intimidating. I always wondered how these guys keept coming up with incredible designs over and over again. Later I discovered they had a list of underground graphic design inspiration websites bookmarked in their web browser that they could draw ideas from. This site ( seeks to be one of those sites. you probably should bookmark it 🙂

    These are awesome! I started designing my own t shirts a few months ago, and I learned all the necessary steps from this guide: but I was running out of ideas for the designs, and your collection came quite helpful to give me the inspiration needed 🙂
