Screen printed t-shirts and hoodies

November 2021

Various hand screen printed designs for The Future Sound of London, Plaid, The Orb, Touched Music and FireScope Records amongst others.

Mind Maps 2 t-shirt
Mind Maps t-shirt back

FSOLdigital presents Mind Maps 2

Two colour hand screen printed t-shirt to go along with the Mind Maps 2 album artwork I designed. Featuring the brain graphic from the inside panel of the CD packaging but with the Mind Maps type made more obvious. Custom typography on the back shows the Future Sound of London aliases featured on the Mind Maps 2 album.

Plaid — Stem Sell

T-shirt and hoodie featuring the Plaid logo drawn in DNA barcodes that I designed for the Stem Sell remix album. They were produced in a range of colours to match the album artwork.

The Orb ‎– A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Centre Of The Ultraworld

Sold exclusively at one Orb gig on one night as part of their 30th anniversary tour. There was no artwork to work with so I had to redraw all the elements from the record sleeve and recreate cropped-off or overlapping graphics such as the stylised star and the astronaut. I presented four options that emphasised different elements to create something that wasn’t just a straight copy of the iconic The Designers Republic artwork.​

Covert 3 – Touched Music

A shirt for charity record label Touched Music’s third volume in the Covert series featuring music by anonymous artists. I created a design using the same cryptic visual language I developed for the Covert 3 album artwork.

B12 — Electro-Soma

Hand screen printed shirt to promote the reissue of the classic 1993 album on Warp Records. Featuring the isolated main figure from the cover, the back uses elements of the album artwork and is printed on a shirt colour to match the album sleeve.

Touched Music — Touched Live

Another shirt for charity record label Touched Music, this time for their live event in Hastings. I used the colour scheme from the promotional poster and came up with several treatments of the event title for the front. Again, this one was hand screen printed and sold exclusively at the event.

Steven Rutter — BrainFog

This uses a reworked version of the painting from the album cover that I adapted quite heavily to work as a screen print. I designed the Steven Rutter logo on the sleeve and the BrainFog typography (which I also used in various different iterations on the album artwork). Every shirt is slightly different due to the hand colour blending.

Magnonic Signals

Based on the Aquatronics - Deep Horizons EP artwork and screen printed on a Gildan Royal Blue shirt (also available on black).

FireScope Records x Pickle Factory

A one-off design for the FireScope Records showcase at The Pickle Factory in London. The front features custom designed letterforms created especially for this shirt. They were sold at the event and also given to all the artists that performed. A great night and I was delighted to see Kirk DeGiorgio and Derek Carr wearing them.

Neo Ouija Records — Oh Shuper!

A self initiated bit of fun for Neo Ouija. I had recently designed the new Neo Ouija logo and label boss, Lee Norris, kept commenting “Oh Shuper!”. I had the idea to design a t-shirt and see if I could do the words in the same style as the typography I’d designed for the logo.
