An American Idol once said that “In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes!”

The future is now!

I think this statement displays a profound awareness of human nature and is both a reflection and prediction central to the ideologies of the pop art movement …

In turn this passage inspired me to better understand humanity in the present world by trying to find out how Andy’s quote was relevant today. I soon began focusing on people’s insatiable relationship with the media. I needed to find the essence of fame in today’s culture and then find a way to cleverly and succinctly depict it.

My research had many focuses including advertising, photography, print, viral, word of mouth, television and of course web but my main focus areas soon became reality TV and the internet. From there I took an idea and found appropriate and specific examples that I thought would best convey my message.

To get a good understanding of the way Warhol thought I was forced to look closely at the inherent beauty within the subject matter, of things we see every day and pay little attention to. By harnessing the existing power of the chosen logos and reapplying them to Warhol’s saying I was then able to add validity to Andy’s words

Hopefully the end result succinctly conveys the ingenious foresight of Warhol’s statement. It was a joy to design something for this contest. I have always thought of threadless as a glorious embodiment of pop art. A place where witty, beautiful, brilliant, yet supposedly low culture designs are embraced, encouraged and held in high regard, considered the equal of high brow art hanging on gallery walls.

thanks guys,

a logo is a very specific thing, these are not logos, it is a sentence that shares familiar attributes to several logos and in its entirety is a totally different thing all together

stephaknee88 i'd love to tell you but i wouldn't dare ruin all of your fun:) perhaps others will be kinder than i am:P

Way to totally rape the modern world of logos and famous making programs to indulge in the best use of logo manipulation I think i've ever seen! Andy McCambellsSoupFace would be mightily proud of this.

thanks guys, i think the google logo slightly compromises the aesthetic with it's colours but i thought it was fundamentaly important enough to the concept to include it

also if i was being analy retentive the overall composition of the shirt the andy warhol signature would be slghtly smaller, i just wanted it to be clear to read

to be honest i thought the shirt looked suprisingly good, but i'm quite happy to adress a couple of issues if the design is chosen for print

PS: love the haters

and Gnnd if you think this concept is the same as the very obscure reference you made, i think you missed the whole point of the design
