site of the week: hipster runoff

Do you love this t-shirt? Then yes, you are alt.

i guess working with a bunch of people who are ever referring to varying degrees of ‘cool’ made me jaded when i should have been slutting around semi-naked and badly dressed in blue stockings and red Converse High-tops, delighting in my own ‘cool’, but this site Hipster Runoff, has brightened my day and unjaded me thoroughly. i highly recommend it if you have spare time at work / have work you don’t want to do / think of yourself as uncool / think of yourself as cool / spend more than 30 minutes getting ready in the morning / walk around mumbling ‘why so serious?’to yourself the whole time. you won’t regret it.

calling all South African T-shirt designers (yes, that means pretty much everyone)

The call to entries for the Uniqlo T-shirt Grand Prix 2009 – ‘The Olympics of T-shirt Design’ – ends 21 September 2008. which means you have just under 2 months to get your most designy design to them. i know they are very keen for South African designers to get involved so don’t have that ‘I’m just a South African therefor I won’t win’ attitude. seriously, send your stuff through. you could be big in Japan. plus, the prize money is something stupid like R200 000. for a t-shirt. for real. this could be your lucky break.
