Working on a new shirt.. New shirt is alive!

Trying to put together a new shirt about the FRA law here in sweden, and more and more countries to be honest. I’m trying to spoof an old IKEA assembly manual “look”, as well as a tourist “I’ve been to sweden, and all I bought was this shirt”-feel :)

The shirt is ALIVE!! :D

oh man, I love it.

Well, I don’t find it that funny. But then again I don’t really know what would add that final touch to make it so. Good initiative though. ;D

I prefer the second one. the second one is snarlier than the first one, and the third one is a bit too cluttered, since the Chinese flag doesn’t really integrate well with the three Xs. Maybe if you have the guy holding a chinese flag and talking about those three forbidden things, it’d be a bit subtler?

on the words of Motgomery Burns “Exxxxcellllent”, third version gets my vote as the best one

i like the first one the best, mostly because it’s so clean and the second i think it’s too mean on the country(the people could go, fuck themselves) and feel that the third one is to cluttered(and i like t-shirts that have atleast the entire front filled. Now i expect that this will be one with the picture/design in the back) much.

Ett förslag, försök att få fram känslan att kina/usa exporterar det (inte i vad jag anser dessa staters regeringar gör, men mer i att vad folks sätt att se respektive regim. För att skapa ett mer förtryckande känsla, om nu du tänkt att det ska vara så)

i totally like the 3rd one the most. totally love all the flowers!

I prefer the third one, but better spaced? The 3 boxes suggests some sort of progression, but there isnt supposed to be any.

[…] om en T-shirt hos Little Gamers var läsvärd. Kinesiska flaggan med svenska färger är en solklar signal. Det är f.ö. samma […]

Jag vet inte.. Jag hängde faktiskt inte alls med på vad bilderna skulle betyda innan jag läste texten ovanför.

Jag håller med om att den sista är bäst. Visserligen gillar jag att de två första är uppdelade i rutor. Det är snyggt på nåt vis. Men jag tyckte inte budskapet gick fram riktigt. Det är mycket tydligare i den sista.

I, too, like the last one the best, because it makes the most sense. The first one is hard to get without the “Enjoy your stay” thing, and it doesn’t quite “click”.

Then again, the second one isn’t too shabby either, but if it was up to me, I’d definately go for the last one.

The last one is good. But i think it only works so well because you saw the large ones. So i like the second one best.

omg! I’m so going to buy one!

I am divided between the second and the third. In the third, perhaps you could take away the chinese flag from the speech bubble and put it somewhere else? Make it less cluttered and such.
Jag måste säga att jag är sugen på att köpa en sån tröja :D

oh, now there are three designs so I have more to say…

The first is still my favorite. It’s true to the already humorous Ikea instruction manuals, and fewer words are better in my opinion. The point of the humor is subtle and it’s not necessary to beat the viewer over the head with it. (thus, I don’t feel the “enjoy your stay” really adds anything, and the 3rd design is just too confusing with everything thrown together.) Granted, I expect to be ready to explain this one to people who see me wearing it, but that’s the fun of a shirt like this.

and the second one triumphs!!!! whoot. aesthetics ftw.



There is no spoon.
