I’ve had t-shirts on the brain for the last few weeks. First of all, we need to have some Whimseybox t-shirts designed to wear at Demo Day. It’s a requirement so people can find us and talk with us after we present, so I understand, but it’s a little annoying because (1) I don’t wear many t-shirts (2) unless they are really cool, but (3) that’s hard! We still need to have Whimseybox t-shirts designed and I’m in that place where you know what what you like, but not how to get it.
You know who is the authority on awesome t-shirts? Threadless! I’ve met a few members of the Threadless team over the last few months and they have all been really excellent. Last week I got to take a quick spin around their office and warehouse, aka one of the coolest, most creative workplaces around.
During really busy times there are tons of people picking orders- I think this is a fun and fair way to figure out what to play!
There is all kinds of crazy stuff around their office, but somehow that ugly plant is the funniest to me just because it’s so ordinary. I have to imagine there is a story behind it.
So, all that fun at Threadless and Whimseybox is still sans t-shirts. I’m working on it! Feel free to share any affordable (!) designers you recommend in the comments, too!
