Want to buy a shirt that’s worth â‚¬15,000? That’s exactly how much Piu Piu won at French T-Shirt contest site, laFriase for her design, Elephant Gum. And while you’re there be sure to read the interview that Piu Piu did with la Fraise, you wont get 15K for doing so but it is worth the read. Elephant Gum is available now from laFraise for â‚¬19.
“The Designer was inspired by a french saying: A bit of thick skinned attitude in this elusive world. Go and adopt an elephant, you will get beautiful teeth then! (free translation).”
Now if I am being honest, I am not entirely sure if that single T-Shirt design is worth the 15K prize but then again, art is in the eye of the beholder. How many of you dig the la Fraise 15K prize winning design?

Things have been going pretty well with the blog so far. I’ve been keeping up with content, something that I have never consistently done with previous blogs of yesteryear. The one thing that has been lacking, however, has been a proper logo! And finally, I have one! Thanks to a good buddy, who also happens to be a great designer! Tim (BunnyDojo.com) was able to come up with this splendid logo for the site. I told him a few of my interests and he pumped this bugger out like there was no tomorrow.
The logo features a brain because of my love for neuroscience and an elephant because, well, elephants are special to me (not because I am a conservative since in fact I am quite the liberal!). Anyhow, hope you guys like the logo and thanks again, Tim!Â
PS: Be sure to check out Tim’s site. If you need a design job done, he’s the man. He also has a slew of design samples that you can peruse. As an added bonus, he’s a ninja rabbit. How cool is that?
