Do The Carlton!

This highlarious shirt comes to us courtesy of The Printed Mind and was designed by illustrator and artist, Gaunty. I grew up watching The Fresh Prince of Bell-Air and so when I spotted this tee over at Emptees images of Carlton doing his patented dances started to flow through my mind. Carlton was infectious and his moves, well, they were corny yet classic.

You can pick up Do The Carlton from The Printed Mind for $19.99. Relieve the 90’s with some Carlton swingin’ goodness!

Social Media Campaign for DBH 10k: Mecha Labaw

Social Media Campaign for DBH 10K: Mecha Labaw is a guest post written by Blake from You Design It where they offer custom t-shirt printing. He’s a t-shirt fanatic that wants to rid the world of suits, one tee at a time.

With in the recent announcement of the Design By Humans top 10 finalists in the 10K contest, I thought it would be interesting to share with you one of the finalists’ social media campaigns to win. Talk about hustle, this artist has earned a spot in the top 10 for both his high quality artwork and strategic use of the Internet’s resources to gain votes.

I am speaking about Christian San Jose and his design named Mecha Labaw. Here is a look at it in case you haven’t seen it yet:

Mecha Labaw

When I was first introduced to this design, ironically it was not at Design By Humans. It was actually in my Google Feed Reader via a user generated blog named Design You Trust. Christian had uploaded his design to Design You Trust and used their platform to broadcast to the design community. This instantly put his design in front of thousands of like-minded designers that could potentially go to DBH to vote on his design.


Of course, he included the link to his design page on DBH, but he also went one huge step further. He actually created a website for his design under the same name – Mecha Labaw. That is definitely going above and beyond. He then incentivized votes by giving the chance to win five DBH shirts if you post the provided HTML snippet to include his design on one of your own webpages/blog/profile.


This kind of campaign is very innovative and could potentially create a whole new trend. The competition has just been stepped up a notch thanks to Christian San Jose. Let’s see just how far this goes in the upcoming weeks as the winner is selected.

Blake is a guest author from You Design It, where you can design t-shirts for custom printing.

Flying Out To Seattle – Plaid Nation!

I’m just about ready to leave my house to catch my flight to Seattle! I couldn’t resist doing a quick video of the flyaway shirt I chose to wear. It’s from the guys over at the Plaid Design Agency. They sent me over this tee after I blogged about their Plaid Nation 2009 cross country tour. I love it!

So, as a fair warning, I’ll be gone till next Wednesday but don’t worry I will still be doing posts on the blog. I have some already prepared but I will most likely be doing video blogs of my travels. Hopefully I’ll also be able to meet up with the guys behind Tilteed and Found Item Clothing while I am in Portland! So keep an eye out for those!
