I always try to challenge myself when designing shirts. And this week’s theme, “Beauty Within”, was a good opportunity to try something different. I wanted to design something with a hidden message and humor, but at the same time very wearable. I came up with a concept referring Zombies (specifically the movie Zombieland), but without adding a dead character, brains or human remains. I wanted people to look at the design and realized what the reference was, without being too direct with the elements used.
After submitting my design, it became very popular, very quickly. It had a lot of supporters… but a lot of haters as well. Not everyone understood the message behind my design. Too bad, because a lot of people did, and helped my design reach the top. After more than two days on The Fog, it was rejected by Woot 😦 I guess sometimes a few drops of water can produce a storm… But fear not! I made some changes to the design and re-submitted it. I think it’s a little bit more “socially acceptable” now. Hope you like it!
