As I was saying before, please don’t waste your time just throwing an inspirational quote onto a t-shirt unless you are doing it right, and in an original way. Make the text work with the imagery, and try to make a connection or inspire others.

This is often easier said than done, as famous quotes are popular as the basis for t-shirt designs, but often not executed well. It takes a lot of motivation for someone to take out their wallet to buy a t-shirt online, so there has to be a strong emotional connection made for it to happen.

If you’re thinking of trying it yourself, maybe there is a cause or organization that you can attach to the design. I’d love to see t-shirts for charitable organizations convey their messages with the effectiveness of brands like Arquebus. Who wouldn’t be inspired by a t-shirt supporting a cause like fighting breast cancer with quotes presented with this quality of typography?

Anyway, Daniel from Arquebus Clothing says their brand, “is dedicated to providing designs that are self expressive and meaningful, using imagery or typography… designs not only looks cool, but also have a meaning that people can relate to everyday or at any moment in their life. They are bold, positive, inspirational, motivational, witty, philosophical and very wearable by everybody.”

Perception Apparel – Typography T-Shirts

perception apparel t-shirts

I’m a fan of typography, and these tees from Perception Apparel really impress me. Sometimes just putting a quote on a t-shirt with a common font can be about as inspiring as opening a can of spaghetti, so if you’re designs are solely text-based, you have to do it right.

The point of these t-shirts goes beyond the well-designed text though. Dylan, the designer, said that the “keep moving forward” tee above, “represents the fact that no matter what it is that you are trying to accomplish, you need to always remember to keep moving forward.”

Reminds me of a favorite quote of mine, this too shall pass.” I’ve often thought of it in both the best & worst of times to maintain a perspective, and not feel overly attached to any one situation or event.

Anyway, I hope that they add to their initial selection of 3 tees at perceptionapparel.com, because they are off to a good start.
