White Devils For Obama T-Shirt

Like the White Sox, Ricobene’s Pizza, Lem’s Barbecue and the next President of the United States, it’s a South Side thing.  Zany utterances by the Nation of Islam over the decades on subjects ranging from UFOs to numerology to claiming all white people are devils have added to a pile of silly rhetoric left behind by the endless struggle for social justice.   And if silly rhetoric at a historic moment isn’t the raw material of a good t-shirt, what is?

I designed the shirt and I’ll be sporting one of these along with the very lovely and very white Maureen in Grant Park on Tuesday when the Obama presidency presumably launches.  We expect to have quite a few laughs with quite a few people on what we expect will be a happy occasion in Chicago and US history.

So if you’re a white devil and want to make your own shirt, you can download the the art as an Adobe Illustrator file (Note: this art has not been finally sized for Tshirt print area, but resizing is easy):

Saul Bass vs. Star Wars

For a few years now the Saul Bass-inspired “Hitchcock” font has been available on the net, but not until this has someone done something really great with it. Brought to you by – who else – Some Guy On The Internet: the titles to Star Wars if Saul Bass had done them.

Dieter Rams: Bitten By Apple?

Serial Inspiration

(Top: 1960s Braun products, designer Dieter Rams.  Bottom: contemporary Apple products, Apple employee Johnathan Ive)

In a case of serial, uh, inspiration, the 1960s work of Dieter Rams, lead designer for German industrial giant Braun bears a more-than-passing resemblance to the current products of a certain Cupertino computer company. Enjoy the comparison of Rams’ designs against the modern iPod, G5, and iMac. Given Steve Jobs’ penchant for expensive German eyewear, perhaps there are bigger surprises than this…
