Recently, I was sent a few shirts by DesignByHumans to check out.
For those that don’t know, DesignByHumans offers various shirts designed by regular people, not corporations. They do offer design contest from time to time, along with having some Collective Artists on staff, but most shirts you’ll find on there is something that you won’t see anywhere in stores.
For gamers, they do feature a variety of shirts to check out. Some of my personal favorites are the TNT shirt, showing a different perspective on Creepers, Pokemoon, a faded out Pokeball, The Castle, a different looking Mario T-shirt, and my personal favorite, Overdose of Pixels. Overdose of Pixels harkens back to the early age of gaming, tying in Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Tetris through giant 3D pixels.
The shirts range in size from small to XXL for both men and women, although sometimes a particular size for a design may be sold out, forcing you to wait for a reprint. They are fitted, so bigger people may want to take that into account on sizing. However, I got the XXL’s and they’ve all worked fine on me. It’s also a smoother cotton than normal shirts, which is a nice bonus as well.
One of the biggest plusses for DBH is the prices and sales. Prices are pretty affordable, with most shirts hitting around the $20 range. However, the site frequently has sales on shirts, dropping them sometimes by almost half if not more. In fact, as of this writing the Overdose of Pixels shirt is down to $12.
In addition, the site also features the Tee Grinder. By selecting a gender and size, it will pick three random shirts that you can buy together for $25. You can also keep clicking on the Grind button to select new shirts, letting you try to match up shirts you may like more to pick up for cheaper.
Overall, DesignByHumans offers a good variety of interesting shirts that drew a decent amount of attention from other gamers when I showed the shirts off. If you’re looking for some different gaming T-shirts, or just some shirts with graphic designs out, give them a look.
