DBH and Incubus Design Contest (0)

And the hits just keep on coming over at Design By Humans. They have now paired up with the band Incubus

for the latest installment of the DBH music series. I think the best part about these contest has been the variety in the style of musicians offered with Pink Floyd to Lil’ Wayne to now Incubus.

Check out the image below to see what you can win:


Lil’ Wayne Contest Winner at DBH (0)

Lil’ Wayne

, we have a winner….and it probably isn’t what you expected.  The design is impeccable and the print should be amazing.  The only problem is, this one might leave you scratching your head.  You just have to keep in mind the future of Lil’ Wayne and not his past to understand why this design is so relevant.  You see, Weazy is about to embark on his “rock n’ rap” career.  Knowing that makes this design hit the nail on the head.

Jimiyo Goes Full Time with DBH (0)

I’m a little late to the party on this one but I just saw where designer extraordinaire, Jimiyo, has been hired full time at Design By Humans

. He is taking on a position that requires him to relocate to Irvine, Cali as the Art Director. This is a great example of the world being flat and that you can be noticed everywhere with a combination of some hustle, skills and the internet. Looks like this will be a great addition to an already solid team at DBH.

Good luck and congratulations Jimiyo


Is This a Budding T-Shirt Dynasty? (0)

Published on November 11th, 2008. By

Two of our favorite companies to write about are Design By Humans

and Tee Fury .  It’s no secret that they are littered all across this t-shirt blog because of their superior t-shirt prints and sick t-shirt designs.  They were both the second major players in their niche with Design By Humans successfully following Threadless ‘ trail and Tee Fury taking the Shirt.Woot path.

Being second is not a bad thing at all.  Please don’t misconstrue this post as anything negative, it is actually quite the opposite.  These two companies have come out of the starting blocks, running like Olympic athletes.  Obviously, the market was not saturated, and they have done a great job of grabbing up market share so that the next me-toos can’t be so successful.  Recently, they formed a partnership since their business processes are not competitive and their marketing hits the same audience.

Ironically, both companies are located in Irvine California.  This makes the partnership more convenient or might make a conspiracy theorist think that the owners are the same.  If in fact the term partnership is being used loosely and the owners are the same, then these guys might just be the next t-shirt dynasty.  As far as not disclosing to everyone that they are one in the same, don’t blame the player… blame the game. :-)

I was doing a little cruising on Design By Humans and came across one of our regular faves at T Addict. Dale Murray uploaded a design called Splashy

and looks like it is off and running with votes. We hope this post will inspire you to head over there and show some love. Here is a preview of the design before you leave us to vote:

The characters are cool, the colors are nice, and the bones set it off. My vote is for the blue shirt so the design pops a little more.

At first you can’t really tell what it is – other than a big brown blob. If only design by humans printed the shirt closer to the submission colors.
