I just saw two shirts on Mash Kulture’sStaple Design’s offerings for Spring 2009
The other shirt is one that every screen printer and designer should get a kick out of. Someone finally went ahead and printed the PMS book on a shirt.

Who’s in the designer spotlight this week? None other than one of the most gruesome designers in high demand right now, GodMachine
What is your favorite part of design?
finishing a piece and being happy with what you have done…it doesnt last though. After a while of living with a piece, the faults, changes and mistakes grow…’i could have done this better’, ‘the lines there are wrong’, ‘the colours are off’ etc etc. So, for that brief moment after you finish a piece is my fav’ part of designing, the point where you stop worrying for 5 seconds and go ‘ahhhhh sleep’. But that 5 seconds is followed 5 seconds later with ‘shit- I have to do that other design in two days’….and it starts all over again. I love it though.
How would you describe your style?
erratic and confused. I would say that I am still learning how to draw and learning. My style seems to be a bit of everything and I cant tell if its through me being bored or over excited and wanting to try everything…I would like to think that I will one day settle on a style…but then it seems limiting almost. Most people say I have a style…and I suppose you could tell which were mine out of a line up… I think I like to try lots of different ‘styles’ so i can learn how things work and why people do certain things. Maybe its like singing, you can sing country, blues, doom or rap- but you can only sing those things in your own voice…does that make sense, probably not.
What inspires your work?
so many things, colour, composition, lines…its really hard to say as there is so much. cats!
What are five websites that you can’t live without?
What trends do you see developing in the future of t-shirt design?
i think its going to get more satanic- grim as f***. Or…it will get …nah- satanic as hell- gross blood guts death gore etc. etc.

To my designers out there reading this…..Go Media is a must in your design toolbox. A few quick glances at their portfolio and client roster should get your attention. Then cruise their blog, GoMediazine
I picked up a few tips as they showed us their design flow from a primitive sketch to a polished vector. Get some by clicking on the pic:

So you think you’re tired of skull t-shirts? it’s probably because you’re just tired of seeing the same old ones. I had one sent in to me that’s impossible to not like. Miles To Go ClothingMuerte Dulce
For starters, I’m a sucker for oversized prints. This design brought new meaning to oversized. Not only that, they ventured out and used discharge ink’s to accomplish the color. Before I get too far ahead of myself, let me show you the obligatory picture of what was included in the package.
They included their free stickers and threw in a coupon to foster repeat business. Mixing in promo codes with your product is something important that most people are not doing. It could be just enough influence for the next purchase. It’s a great way to create fans of your product by making it easy for them to purchase from you again.
The skull artwork is obviously the focal point and deserves to be with the popular ornamental design details. The colors go together beautifully between the print and the black t-shirt and kind of reminds me of a tattooed style.
You know the Taddict is all about the details and these were not forgotten on this. It featured a custom sewn-in label with the Miles to Go brand and a hang tag for some polish.
All in all, this clothing company has a bright future as far as I’m concerned. It is both high quality and high cool. I want to share the promo code of friends to save you 20% off on your next purchase. In fact, do that now.
If you are launching a new line or just a new product in an already existing line, contact the Taddict
