Democracy can yield some suspect outcomes (see prohibition) but it can also harness the collective wisdom of mankind for great things, like getting rid of prohibition. Striving for the latter, with style, the new Kindred Market
A new venture from a couple Midwest t-shirt vets, KM has launched an ongoing weekly contest where the creamiest brand concepts rise to the top via user votes and earn themselves inclusion into an elite cohort of shirt superpowers, like a cotton-based UN Security Council.
Highlights from the newly-launched include the brand Black T-Shirt, whose cycling-inspired gear features an unraveling cassette tape crossed with an out-of-control bike chain, a mashed-up hybrid of "Bikes!" in varying fonts repeated ad nauseam, and Chewbacca riding a bicycle -- his weak liberal guilt attempt to offset the Millennium Falcon's carbon footprint.
Another chosen one, Advice Apparel, offers up tees like a crazed colorful skull with its eyes popping out, a totally jacked-up panther slinking along menacingly, and a blue tiger rocking stellar magenta shades a la Chester the Cheetah, though with his eyewear it is easy being cheesy.
If you think you can be the next Big Johnson, KM's site provides access to design software for you to flex your skills, and access to networks of artists to make said visions realities, meaning the only roadblock on your rise to glory is the prohibition God placed on giving you any talent.
