Wear Your Heroes on Your Sleeve
New T-shirts pay homage to Paul Rand, Milton Glaser, Wim Crouwel, and 14 other graphic-design masters.
Want people to recognize what a graphic-design aficionado you are, but tired of lugging around that Josef Müller-Brockman monograph everywhere you go? Skreened’s new Graphic Design Heroes T-shirts can help. The sartorial homages to Paul Rand, Milton Glaser, Wim Crouwel, and 14 other masters were created by Paul Nini, a professor of design at the Ohio State University. (Nini previously created a line of Great Typefaces shirts.) But graphic-design students should be careful not to get caught wearing one to class, lest you make the equivalent of the dreaded band T-shirt faux pas.
