Created for the Threadless Loves Threadless Challenge (or Create the New Trends.)

This is the Beatles song Help! (in Morse Code.)
How did I get here? Here was my train of thought:

1) When I think of new trends, I can't avoid thinking about history repeating itself. (Think about fashion.)

2) Then I started thinking about trends in communicating ideas.
(Text Messaging came to mind.)

3) A Text Message full of short forms and acronyms is very similar to a Telegraph
(History repeating itself again.)

4) Telegraphs where always transmitted as Morse Code.
(So what about doing something with Morse Code?)

5) And finally when I think about Morse Code, I think about distress calls.
(Calls for ‘Help!’)

6) And when I think about ‘Help!’ I think about the Beatles song.

Finally arriving at the Beatles song ‘Help!’ (in Morse Code.)

So, the new trend is… Word Association? History Repeating? Messages in Code?
I don’t really know, but I think it looks cool!

I forgot to mention the word 'Help' appears in red...
I hope you like it!

Really awesome thinking process for this one. Also nice translation of that thought proces, although the top radio sparks are a bit much for me. Well done!

It's simple to see that you have experience with art. This is a great design and it deserves the 5 I gave it. I puke at this horrific piece of awesomeness. $5 for great design and cool idea.

I would never have guessed the layers of meaning in this but I think it just plain looks good, especially with the back added in, and that's the big test for me!

clever idea - i like the back detail... it opens the whole design up and makes it easier to understand without being too obvious.
nice work!

Nice, I like the clasic sign hand on the back. Only thing that would annoy me if I wore it would be to constantly explain what it meant!

Some people like being asked about their Threadless Tee-Shirts. You Just say it's the Beatles song Help! in morse code.

Thanks again everyone!

Great work! I like the continuity that the back of the shirt gives the design.
