06/10/2014 Top Picks – Daily Shirt Designs

I love Game of Thrones. Deal with it. 😛


06/10/14 Top Pick; Fire Song

The first in a pair of matching A Song of Ice and Fire designs. That’s Game of Thrones for you non-readers. Here we have the southern kingdoms and their noble houses.

starComposition – Wonderfully well-balanced and dynamic combination of components.

starColor – Bright regal golden fire appearance.

starLines & Forms – Great amount of details on such a complex design.

Thank You Jonito

06/10/14 Top Pick; Ice Song

The northern half of the pair. This design is a perfect foil to the other. See if you can spot all the details. It’s like a game of “Where’s Walder?”. Hint: the towers of the Twins are in there for House Frey.

starComposition – While this design is slightly different again, wonderfully well-balanced and dynamic combination of components. All the components are slightly different from the other design but work well together also.

starColor – Nice icy blues.

starLines & Forms – Great amount of details on such a complex design.

Thank You Jonito

06/10/14 Top Pick; The Knight’s Watch

starTexture – I really enjoy the distressed texture on the black areas giving them interest and complexity.

star Composition – Great use of positive and negative spaces. The men create a dynamic balanced pyramid by their placement in ascending order.

star Humor – Need I say more?

05/06/14 Top 3 Pick; The Dark Knightmare

This hypnotizing, maniacal grin is share by both The Joker and Oogie Boogie. Batman replaces Jack Skellington, standing tall over the scene. Batman’s wind-blown cape creates interesting wild shapes also mimicked throughout Joker’s crazed appearance. The city scape along with the “HA” signs create wonderful visual complexity and keep the eye jumping around the design. The lighter long stokes in the background along with the lighter figures in the teeth nicely break up the solid yellow plains keeping the design active. The Batman logo background also mimics the pumpkin shape of The Pumpkin King, Jack.

Thank You Donnie

05/06/14 Top 3 Pick; Silence, My Brother

This Dark Brotherhood sign would nicely mark the underground settlement in Skyrim. Wonderful, well-balanced composition with bilateral symmetry. I enjoy how the crossed arms create an arrow which points to the red hand print. The thick red outline really makes the design pop and serves as a nice clean trim around the design. The skeletal figure is mostly made up of soft grays, except for the white on the blades, giving them a highlight and a shine.

05/06/14 Top 3 Pick; Ishimura Engineering

Only class 5 engineers may sport this design. This interstellar mining ship is portrayed small in the lower center. The name of  the ship is in a large, bold font on a curve in the top center. Together, they anchor and contain the other components in the design as they seem to float in space. Isaac’s plasma cutter tool dominates the center of the design, a makeshift weapon for dismembering Necromorphs. This calm and simple design hides the gruesome and hideous nature of Dead Space. A subtle shirt that non-gamers would never look at twice.

04/14/14 Top 3 Pick; Crows Before Hoes

“Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children…” Sorry Ygritte, but Jon’s a man of his word. I enjoy that this simple design is mostly typographic. The basic white serif typeface has a similar treatment to the Game of Thrones font including the parallel lines in the “O”s.

04/14/14 Top 3 Pick; Naskart

Here we go!” Now this is a sport I could watch! Banana peels, red and green shells, mushroom boosts, and the all powerful blue shell; combine that with the colorful characters of Mario’s universe and you’ve got one exciting race! This design is very similar to the iconic Nascar logo, which conveys movement and is quite fitting for the race theme.

04/14/14 Top 3 Pick; Some Men

“If I have to have a past, then I prefer it to be multiple choice.” A man with nothing to lose is frightening. A crazy psychopath, detached from reality, hellbent on making the world as twisted as he is, AND he has nothing to lose? Somebody call Batman! This chaotic design is perfect for a for a crazy villain. His wild hair is interesting and reflects his insane mind. His mouth looks like a sinister red bloody grin. I enjoy that the typography is treated the same, irrational and mad.

Thank You Grafx-Guy
