New nature t-shirt series designs

nature series t-shirts by Origin68

It's been a while since we released some new tees, so we've gone mad and released three at the same time! We were feeling pretty inspired by all things nature related, so we decided to put a little collection together using that as the theme. We've even roped in a few friends to design them.

First up in TREES by our longtime friend Tilman from Geometry Daily. In his classic style he's come up with some minimal tree designs. So simple, but so clever.

Second is PLANTS by Will Scobie. We have wanted to work with Will for a while now, and once we had decided on the nature theme we thought his iconic style would be perfect. We love these little abstract plant studies.

Last up is our own Origin68 MOUNTAINS design. A perfect little reminder of those lazy summer days wandering through the countryside.


New 'Shapes' series t-shirts

Shapes sewries tshirts


We have a trio of lovely new t-shirts ready for summer deployment. You could think of it as a Making Shapes E.P. as we explore some interesting geometric themes. 

First up is Equals. Here at Origin68 we believe that everyone is an equal regardless of gender, race, religion or whatever else people might use to divide us. We are infinitely stronger together regardless of what some of our politicians might think! #Brexit

Next we have Lazy Days by friend of Origin68 Joe Trickett. Joe's geometric triptych design put us in mind of hot lazy days by the pool, overlooked by an epic mountain-scape. For anyone who's been to Palm Springs; a bit like that! Guess that makes Joe our resident Hockney!

Finally we have Shapes. Triangles are our favourite shapes.... But we still like squares and circles too! This tessellation shows that nicely, as it interplays between the different geometric structures and their patterns. We like to think that it's a representation of a sound... A big bang if you will!

As with all Origin68 clothing, all three shirts are hand printed in the UK on a climate neutral 100% organic cotton t-shirt.


Geometry Daily and Origin68 Collaboration t-shirt

We're thrilled to unveil our newest collaboration, this time with Tilman Zitzmann, curator of the excellent 'Geometry Daily'. This cubist dream explores the possibilities of ∞ (the abstract mathematical concept formerly known as infinity). Tilman produces a new geometric design daily.  Everything is done digitally in vector and bitmap design software. We loved this one so much we put it on a shirt! Tilman is an interaction and graphic designer living and working in and near Nuremberg, Germany. He also works at a creative agency called The Warriors of the Light. as well as teaching interaction design at the local University of Applied Sciences.

Torso book features Tomo77 design

Media - Origin68 Featured in Torso Book So we recently discovered by chance that one of our tshirts made it into the Torso book that came out a while back. We had no idea until we were having a flick through a copy at Margin that belonged to the guys from The Affair (nice guys and super nice tees by the way). It's our Anthony Aguero/Tomo77 design 'The World In Your Eyes' so it must have been the man himself who sent them in. There are a few of his other designs in there. P1020165b P1020169b
