Plaid Nation Visits Threadless!

Have you heard of the Plaid Nation? Before today, I had not. The Plaid Nation is “a rolling celebration of creativity and a demonstration of social media in action.” A bunch of creatively minded people (from the Plaid design agency) is traveling across America, from Detroit to New Orleans on an exploration of the social media sorts. They are setting out to meet with creative, marketing, brand and internet workers, and celebrating their innovations.

The Plaid Nation recently passed through Chicago and stopped by the Threadless headquarters. Check out the clip below featuring an interview with Threadless marketing mastermind, Bob Nanna. You can also see snipits of the Threadless offices and Bob also explains how the look of the Threadless Headquarters came to be!

For more information about the tour, check out The Plaid Nation website. The tour started on July 20 in Detroit and will end on July 31 in New Orleans. Other cities that the tour will be covering include: Milwaukee, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City, Memphis.

Three Keyboard Cat Moon

In an unprecedented move, Threadless has released Three Keyboard Cat Moon after just three days of voting and an believable 3,791 votes. The shirt had a final score of 4.48 out of 5, the highest I’ve ever seen for a Threadless tee.

If you’re wondering what all the hype is about ten you’ve probably not seen one of the most talked about shirts on the Internet, the Three Wolf Moon shirt. After the first five star review stated, “it fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women” but “cannot see wolves with arms crossed”, a firestorm (meaning hundreds) of ironic reviews followed suit. The Three Wolf Moon shirt soared to the top of Amazons Top 10 list. A parody video consisting of some of the comments has also been posted to YouTube!

Oxen, the designer of the Threadless Three Keyboard Cat Moon will go down as creating one of the most sought after Threadless tees. The only question is, will he be a one hit wonder? In any case, you can pick up Three Keyboard Cat Moon for $20 from Threadless now!

Coty Loves Threadless #22 – I’m Bewitched!

In fact, it deserves to be pimped so much that it’s my Threadless Pick of the Week! And how about the rest, you’ll have to watch!

Interview With Threadless Less Is More Winner Aaron Hogg

Here’s another opportunity to win some T-Shirt goodness! I had the chance to interview Aaron Hogg, this weeks Threadless Loves Less Is More winner! Post in the comments section and tell me what Less Is More means to you and I will randomly select one (1) winner to receive a $25 Threadless Gift Certificate that you can use to pick up Natural Selection by Aaron Hogg or any other tee you choose!

For an extra entry, be my fan of Co-Tee TV on Facebook and post a comment on my wall telling me what Less Is More means to you. (1 winner will be randomly chosen from the pool of people that leave a comment here and on my Facebook fanpage, leave a comment in both places and get two entries). Good luck and congratulations Aaron! 

Contest ends on Monday, July 13, 2009 at 11:59 pm Hawaii time. The winner will be announced the following day!

Coty: What was the most difficult part about being restricted to the 2006 submission guidelines?

 Aaron: I guess just making the image work with 4 inks. I actually really like working under restrictions, particularly in shirt design, it helps me focus. I went for a kinda faux 50s execution because a lot of the stuff from that era was done with limited colour palettes so it seemed to fit the brief.

Coty: As the Threadless Loves Less Is More Winner, you will be receiving, aside from the $2500 from Threadless, an amazing amount of community donated prizes. Which of the community prizes are you most excited about?

 Aaron: They all excite me in one way or another. But if I had to hone it down, I’d say the art prints & original artworks & the coffee, I am a coffee junkie so that sounds mighty fine. I just feel sorry for Threadless having to ship them all the way to NZ. Thats gonna cost an arm & a leg. I only just moved back here from Vancouver too.

 Coty: You’ve been a member at Threadless even before 2006. What’s your all time favorite Threadless design?

 Aaron: Oh man, thats such a hard question. The answer has changed probably 50 times during my time there. At the moment my favorite design is Untitled by Dan Sheffield (Tesco), I love everything he does. I even have a Tesco tattoo, which I guess officially makes me ‘gay for him’.

Coty: What does “Less Is More” mean to you? Are you a “Less Is More” kind of guy?

 I guess less is more means that as a golden rule if you can communicate the concept behind your design simply & with less clutter it is more effective than doing it in a complicated way. I am trying to be a less is more kinda guy but as you can tell from the majority of my work I am failing. I enjoy creating & get a fair number of jobs from my over-the-top complex stuff but funnily enough most of the designers I rank the highest are minimalist in their aesthetic. As I develop & learn I think I will head this way myself.
