Nature is my mother

Nature is my mother

 One new T-shirt is in the shop, and it is called “Nature is my mother“. A true freak of nature with a nice countryside hat. Berlin boy Lars Wunderlich, who calls himself TheW in our contest, did this amazing illustration. As well as the useful Mr. Tool who finally found a T-shirt home at Scribtee.com 

Let’s go a bit into details and let the big W (not to be confused!) explain himself:

Hi Lars, please introduce yourself in a few words.

Hi world, i’m Lars Wunderlich aka. Thew aka. Look aka. Erw.Mc.Verve etc…. I’m a Berlin-based designer who is currently very busy with his Diploma work. I do alot of different creative stuff like Illustration, Graffiti, Type-design, Logos, CorporateDesign, Wallpaintings, T-shirts and loads of other stuff which can be decorated. I’m 27 years old and grew up in beatiful Mecklenburg Vorpommern in the north of Germany. I always wanted do something creative in my life. That was my dream and still is. I’m happy to be part of the great peachbeach-collective.

Who or what is ‘Peachbeach’ ?

Peachbeach is a design collective with an eye on illustrative design. Peachbeach are three crazy nervous guys. Falk Hoger, Attila Szamosi and me met in 2007 on a creative camp in the nice countryside of Brandenburg. We didn’t know each other very well, but painted a canvas together. It worked quite well and we realised that our minds fitted together, so we decided to do something together. That was the starting point of Peachbeach. Everybody is free to do what he wants, and sometimes we do stuff together. It depends on what we want to do.

Do you work as a full time designer?

I try hard.

Is there a way you would describe your style?

I cannot describe my style very well because it changes from time to time. It bores me to focus on one special style, so i spread my style into different direction of the creative universe. But I can say that I like well thought out detailed things. I don’t want to do bling bling stuff, which only looks good but has no really meaning behind its prettyness.

Mr. Tool

Tell us a bit about your design “Mr Tool“. How did you get the idea, what did you want to express?

Mr. Tool was originally a cover for a design book. Originally it was only the triangle without a face or a body. The cover didn’t make it, so i decided to do something with all these nice icons. I pushed some Icons from here to there and Mr.Tool popped out. He consists of some really helpfull design tools, so i thought maybe he could say this naughty slogan: USE ME. That’s it.

Even more interesting: What is this thing on “Nature is my mother“?

Yes, this story is a little bit different. I was on my way home from my parents house in hot summer. They live in the countryside  near the woods. I sat in the train doodling a bit, while wearing that hat and the sunglasses you can see in the design. I tryed to draw myself with the pen and this came to my mind. It is the best selfportrait I have ever made. I’m really happy with that, because it shows my deep respect for mother nature, but it also looks a bit chaotic and crazy – as I am. So this shirt is for the outdoorsmen and crazy professors. But actually nobody knows my little dirty plan of wearing somebodys selfportrait on a shirt except of you, dear reader. Hehe.

How much do you do by hand, how much by software?

As you can see in the storys, it depends on what I want to do and what I need. Sometimes I do everything with the graph-tablett, sometime by vector, sometimes by hand.

It's a brand new Morning! currently in the contest

What gives you visual inspiration?

Almost everything. Music, good books, good articles in the newspaper, friends, critiques, other designers and my girl.

What music do you listen to while working/ doodling?

I often listen to Major Lazer stuff (the Mad Decent Label is killer), nearly all Stones Throw artists (also a great label), Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve (great psychrock-stuff on a new dancefloorlevel) and a lot of Rap, Soul, Funk, Reaggea, Rave, Techno, Psychrock, Blues and everything between.

What would you recommend young aspiring designers who want to win shirt contests too?

Maybe: thinking and drawing, listen to critique and spreading the output.

Last words?

Biggupp to PB, MF, DX, TG. Okay sounds too cryptical. Yo biggupp to Frieda, Dad, Mike, Dennis, Mixi, Harf, Mother Nature, Whifffocker, Lidi <3, The Gang and all the loved ones.

We are happy two announce the next winners.

Nature was my mother

Nature was my mother

First off, here is a work of Kevoe, a new artist at Scribtee.com. “Rachel Bilson” was his first submission to scribtee – and woosh! Here he is as a winner. Of course the beauty of actress Bilson helped here, but the way he conceived it as a shirt makes this a well deserved prize. Hope to see more from you in the future, Kev.
 
Second, here’s the second great prize in a row for Berlin design wunderkind Lars “The W” Wunderlich from Peachbeach designer collective. Whatever it is he depicted there – it is freaking freaky to the max. Yet he called it “Nature was my mother“. So, have some understanding for weird creatures with a bunch of tubes and tentacles as a face. Nature made them, just like me and you.

nolimit_print

No limits for my imagination“, created by French artist CasaJordi is out. Admittedly, there are older Designs waiting to be released, but we are still working on optimizing these. We didn’t want to hold back this one though, and the results were quite good. We did this one in direct print in case you wonder why we skipped our five colour rule.

We are happy to say that this incredible collage came out with brilliance in all of its details. Here is the design in bigger than on the scribtee site so you can fully appreciate what this Photoshop-Kurt Schwitters has crafted together:

Much more of CasaJordis stunning work can be seen on his Blog.

Hey, and Twitterers – we need your help to get this up on DayTee.

Wild Business

Wild Business

We have released a new tee shirt for your tee pleasure. It is called Wild Business and it is one for say … critics of capitalism. Lovers of good design. Tee maniacs. Women who always wanted to express what they think about the Alpha-male behaviour of business entrepreneurs, self-obsessed money makers, greedy speculators … or of course for men who think the same.

Wild Business was conceived by Jott (aka Tayo Gross) from Germany, the Designer who also created “All In Me“. If you’re interested you can learn more about him in our interview.

think_blog

The wait is over: a new tee shirt is on store. “Think” is a fine shirt for the summer, the right one to wear in summer since it transports a certain Cuban/ holiday feel, and at the same time exudes a certain tranquility.

It was created by Jive from Italy – you can see more of his work at ClassicRush.com

Think” is now online at scribtee.com.

Looking at the contest, march was a very good month in terms of design quality. For those months where more good designs emerge than we can print, we kept the option open to print more than two designs in a month and reward the designers with 300€ or $ (plus a coupon of course).

We did so this month. So congrats to Alvaro Arteaga from Chile. I instantly fell in love with his pirate design “Arrrr … my leg!” and I knew we just had to let this design come to life:

Arrr ... my leg!!

We believe that pirates are cooler than Ninjas, even if they occasionally have one of these weird days…

Second small prize goes to Mark “Snewo” Jenkins for his Spaceman. He describes his idea:

Spaceman

Came up with this design while thinking about how many people wanted to be something exciting when they grew up (like a spaceman) and ended up in a regular 9-5

Talk about it … a Rockstar manqué knows damn well what Mark is saying with that. What I like about this is that this office hero still wears his spae helmet and thus sorta has his head in the clouds. Don’t stop dreaming!

 We have two new winners and they are called Jott and Artkore. Sounds familiar? Yep, they’re both guys who already won Scribtee once. However, this is because they submitted cool designs again.

Tape

Now with “Don’t Stop Playing” we finally have a tape inspired T-shirt. Jonas “Artkore” did this one and it looks a must-have to go clubbing.  You can never go wrong with audio tapes.

5655

And we loved this one by jott. One of his other designs “Me, my friends and I” was also very popular amongst you, but finally we went for “Wild Business“: it’s a little different from All In Me, it looks classy and if you want, you can take it as a comment to the financial misery. I recently read an interesting thought about this “Would the crisis have happened if brokers were mostly female?” Was it, in short, Testosterone drive that made the reckless striving for more and more gain that made the banks finally crash? The picture of a proud deer in a fine suit, showing his antlers, fits this thought pretty well. Whatever was on Tayo’s mind when he made this – he made it well.

Congrats to you both ! Don’t stop playing (with your graphic software) !

heavymetal_tshirt 

Geez. I feel slighty bad posting this, while the radio newsman tells us the news from Italy. Our thoughts are with the earthquake victims. A friend from Rome just told me he woke up last night with his bed rocking like a cradle.

Well, anyway, this is not a news blog, so if you’re interested in reading more about the earthquake go inform yourself on other sites. And come back if you’re in the mood for art, Design and insights into the work of a Designer. Mr. Giovanni “Minimalsonic” Ricchi presumably was not affected by the catastrophy in any way unless he incidentally lingered in the affected areas. Let the talking begin:

logo_msc

Please introduce yourself in a few words.
I’m Giovanni and I come from Cesena, a little town in the east coast of Italy… i hate winter and love colors..

Are you a full time graphic designer?
Yes I am, I work in a graphic design studio during the day and I do my personal projects in the night.

Where can we see more of your work?
in my portfolio http://minimalsonic.net

How did you get the idea for your T-shirt? Are you a Heavy Metal fan yourself?
The idea came to me one day, looking at the illustrator rules (a thing I look at for so many hours in front of my monitor everyday).
I love to play with words and their multiple meanings…  so the idea was born!
Personally I never listened Heavy Metal, I was into the Hard Core/Punk scene, powerful music as well…

36_04

What are favourite bands then? What music do you like to listen to while working?
I don’t know… I think Judas Priest ever made me curious.
When I work I play my iTunes in shuffle mode.. a blend of hip hop, techno, dubstep, raggae…

On the visual side: what art has inspired you?
My roots are in graffiti and skate culture, a real art movement!

The words consist of rulers. One thing that occured to me: shouldn’t the scale show sixes instead of nines? Or are these rulers with the scale on the bottom side?
Obviously the numbers are 6…6…6… !

Your general opinion on scribtee? What could we improve (besides the long wait for the tees to come out which we promise to improve).
I think your work is great! You give the opportunity to designers to show their work and this is the biggest thing you can do!

allinme_large

Of the three new designs that are in our store All In Me was the one that was the most well received so far. So let’s hear some words from the creator of these little creatures. Please apologize all speling and gramar misteks coz veh are Germäns and only learnt English in school.

Please introduce yourself in a few words.

19Hi, my name is Tayo Gross aka jott, I am 27 years old and I live in Darmstadt (near Frankfurt in Germany).
At the moment i am in my last year studying communication design here in Darmstadt.

Are you a full time graphic designer?

I am studying it and i don’t do anything else for paying my bills … so yes i think i’m a full time designer.
Just wouldn’t call myself a classic full time graphic designer, because i’m also interested in animation and many other creative workfields.

Where can we see more of your work?

21To always see the latest stuff just visit my blog (http://jottworld.blogspot.com/).You can also buy shirt designs of mine on cyroline and at a-better-tomorow.
And there is something really special and totally unique . If you are interessted in bags made entirely out of Gaffa tape (I think it’s more common to call it duct tape internationally ?) , go to STÄSH (http://www.staesh.de) and look what me and two friends of mine invented. And BUY… BUY… and BUY!!!!!!!

How did you get the idea for your T-shirt?

13These holes, with different things, hands and creatures coming out were something I always scribbled when i didn’t know what to do (it was a bit like a boredom therapy).
And when I saw them all together, I just thought that this would make an awesome tee. Then i picked out the best ones, aranged them and the tee was ready.

memyfriends

What music do you like to listen to while working?

It depends. Things like: Jurassic 5, hocus pocus, RJD2, Ray Charles, Pete Philly, AndyC, Pendulum, Mos Def, DJ Hype, the old stuff of Clueso and many many many more.

On the visual side: what art has inspired you?17

Hmmm… difficult. everything i see inspires me in some way. But for example its my all time hero M.C. Escher and many streetart things like Banksy, Blek and every sticker I find in the streets.

Your general opinion on scribtee? What could we improve (besides the long wait for the tees to come out which we promise to improve).

Think it’s great. Not only because you printed one of my designs, but for having many nice shirts (mine included.. haha).
Hmmm… make something better…. perhaps more special contests like the one for the LULU&JIMI-movie. That’s it… so scribtee on …. together we will rule the world.

Thanks, jott! World domination sounds like a good idea. (Illustrations are from his blog and the contest site)
