Introducing Colus Havenga

Designer and animator, Colus Havenga, recently launched his latest project, Colus. The designs are quite interesting in that only the colors black and white are used. The designs are quite minimal and look as if they could have come straight out of Havenga’s sketchbook (and that’s not a bad thing). Bold lines are intertwined with sketch like imagery. I can imagine that these designer T-Shirts would look great, either stand alone, or even under a sporty black blazer. Even Kings Fail (last design seen below), is my favorite design from the bunch.

“Black and white. No convention. No visual trickery. This is colus. Crafted without trend, colour or design stunts to hide behind, this collection tries to stay in its humblest form of design where negative space is as important as the art itself. Colus explores themes of morality through to mortality with symbolic, bold, contrast rich works with an underground tone leaving questions unanswered.”

All Colus shirts are printed on white American Apparel tees are are available now at the Colus online shop for $30 a piece. Tip: If you sign up for the Colus newsletter, you can score a 15% off coupon code. You might want to act on this because i’m not sure how long this offer will last).
