Crowd sourcing has become an efficient means fund a number of different projects — be it medical bills, video games or a Veronica Mars movie. Now you and your friends can pitch in to make a favourite t-shirt design into a reality with TeePublic.
Launched by Josh Abramson (co-founder of College Humor and Vimeo), TeePublic is making it easier for graphic designers to finally see their designs on a t-shirt. The way it works is anyone can upload their designs and if 30 people in a month (that’s one person a day) agrees to buy your shirt, the company will put it into production and with every shirt sold, $5 per shirt goes back to the designer.
Considering just how creative the internet gets (have you seen the sloth photos?), here are just some of our favourite shirts so far on TeePublic:
1. Best Buds by CorwinWebb
2. STAY CLASSY by jordansoliz
3. RASCAL by Keddie
Swedish filmmakers Marcus and Hannes Knutsson put together another suburban stop motion adventure for their continuing series Super Mario Beads.
In this episode, Mario goes grocery shopping, rides a huge red van and defeats a-many evil monsters. You can see how they produced the episode on their YouTube channel lefvandebilder, in a behind the ‘beads’ look. While knitting the beads started as a hobby for Marcus, the two guys thought it would be interesting to combine it with their interest in animated movies.
Watching it is like a blast from my childhood!
