Evolve — Graphic Tee2020

graphic design, illustration

Upon entering a contest for popular streetwear label ︎︎︎Staple Pigeon, I knew that I had to think outside the box to gain attention. This design landed in the final four amongst 800+ submissions.

Inspired by museum graphic t-shirts and textbook diagrams, I took Staple Pigeon’s iconic logo and dialed it back several million years. My aim was to create a clever, thought-provoking graphic with a good message.
