Noticing that Helvetica is the most used font in t-shirt design, artist Shirley-Ann Dick decided to go against the grain. She created a line of shirts that declare (in what seems like every font but Helvetica) “There's more to life than Helvetica.”

The t-shirt designs by Shirley-Ann Dick come in blue and red and are a fun use of simple typography that makes font exciting. Take a look at the cute tee designs above.

Implications - T-Shirts that say catchy slogans and interesting messages continue to gain a great deal of attention as they are a form of walking bilboard. Companies that can release products that are branded, yet still aesthetically pleasing, are more likely to attract loyal and new consumers. Stats for Typography Tees Trending: Older & Mild
