2-Araceli Mendez-T-shirt Designs

September 16, 2009

Folded FlightI found this t-shirt in They make a derby every week in which artists can enter a t-shirt design to be voted on. The person with the most votes who follows the instructions correctly (whether it is the theme of the week or the 6 color limit) will have their t-shirt printed and sold through the website.

This design is called Folded Flight. I find it’s simplicity extremely elegant. There are a lot of things I like about this shirt.  The kanji symbol on the bottom left isn’t dominating the design because of the light color being used.  It is a nice  addition plus the symbol means flight. The choice of light gray shades really draws the eye to the red bird. However, the fact that the shirt is a light almost peach color doesn’t make the red bird too dramatic.  I also like the small design in the bird’s back because it gives it texture. My favorite part of the design is that the birds are origami birds. Although it isn’t actual paper thanks to the different shades of red and added texture it gives the bird dimension and the simple squares are perceived as a whole.
