Endangered Species

Apparel designer Glenn Jones is a personal favorite of mine. I originally ran across his stuff on the mother of all online shirt shops, Threadless, and then tracked him via a series of tubes to his online not-a-hideout at Glennz Tees. Every time that his online store releases a new product a little voice in the back of my head whispers, “You should have thought of that.” It’s maddening.

Glennz Tees is now in the process of offering laptop skins, desktop downloads for mobile devices, calendars and apparel. The site currently has a voter-based setup where new designs are uploaded to a staging area, then produced based on user submitted rankings. The whole thing, as a friend of mine likes to say, is Tabasco.

the design police

Sometimes I play a game that I like to call “Random Bookmark Selection.” This is a fun little ditty that involves randomly selecting one of my previously bookmarked websites for a nice little visit to see if any content has changed or if the bookmark should be deleted. This site has made it through every single round of this game so far, and currently is high on my list of survivors, despite being pretty much the same since I added it to the list, over two years ago.

The design police always deserve a second viewing and oftentimes I find myself checking in just to confirm that I’m not going totally crazy as a designer. Definitely worth the visit, especially if you are familiar with some of the finer pitfalls of design and creative services.
