A while back, I created a shirt design for Shirt.Woot, an awesome t-shirt company that releases one design a day on discount to whomever is lucky enough to visit the site before it sells out. As you can see, my idea was a riff off the old Memory game, only with memorable historical events instead of arbitrary illustrations of ladybugs or dialysis machines or whatnot. Given that I submitted the design back in February, I had a long time to build buzz for the shirt before its unveiling. So, I worked to create a massive equality gap between the richest Americans and the poorest. Then, I fostered discontent among the 99% of Americans who are seeing their income shrink while the wealth of the affluent increases. Lastly, I encouraged the 99% to occupy Wall Street and express their anger using the image of Guy Fawkes, who just happens to appear on my shirt.
PAWNS! YOU'RE ALL PAWNS IN MY GAME! BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Now buy a shirt! And try to buy it today while it's discounted!
Oh, and the above is a blog-worthy version of the design with slightly different colors. The actual shirt design looks like this:
