I’ll Take My Infographic in Bright Orange, Men’s Medium

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

The Shirt Project, by Rich Watts and Louise Ma, takes the infographics out of the newspaper and puts them onto brightly colored tshirts. What a great idea. They put out a new shirt every couple of months and topics range from the New York steam explosion to a bit of pop culture celebrating the birthdays of Michael Jackson, Prince, and Madonna. Subscribe to tshirts the same way you subscribe to newspapers. For the low price of $20, you can be both stylish and educational.

  • A few years ago, in the midst of my debillitating t-shirt addiction, I stumbled across a great line of t-shirts using infographics as both a deisgn feature and a political point: http://www.statattak.com/

    The t-shirts are the work of a design agency Stolen Inc who were horrified to learn that the average life expectancy in Mozambique is just over 30 years.

    This discovery inspired a line of t-shirts “based on statistics that people should be aware of. This way people would become walking billboards for these stats, and they would help spread the word. The hope is that once you see these numbers, you can’t help but want to change them.”

    The designs are great, and as an owner of 2 of them, I’ve told the story to quite a few interested punters at the pub who’ve asked what the graphic means.
