Help! (in Morse code)
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!
Oh, and make sure you check out the back too.
That is REALLY REALLY COOL! I love, love, love the back! It's awesome!
Maybe my favourite one.
that's a really neat idea there.
the detail in the back, makes this design work .
I like it!
Like it great idea! $5
Wow... lots of work. Very creative and great work@
Great effort! I like it a lot :)
This. Is. Awesome. $5
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!
(expect Horriblyhonest, you just signed-up and posted to be a dick.)
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. $5 for great design and cool idea.
5.. this is nice
Hey, thanks everyone (especially Beaumont L ...lol)
I just post a blog more about Morse Code and this design if you're interested.
As for the radio waves, it was a tough call and I had to make it... lol Here was my critique regarding this decision.
Check out the v.4 flash for three variations on the waves.
Thanks again everyone!
always wanted to do a morse code-related design. thumbs up!
ya it's great . . . love the telegraph machine on the back but the morse code alphabet . . . not so much
I would never have guessed the layers of meaning in this but I think it just plain looks good, especially with the back added in, and that's the big test for me!
clever idea - i like the back detail... it opens the whole design up and makes it easier to understand without being too obvious.
Nice, I like the clasic sign hand on the back. Only thing that would annoy me if I wore it would be to constantly explain what it meant!
Some people like being asked about their Threadless Tee-Shirts. You Just say it's the Beatles song Help! in morse code.
Thanks again everyone!
Less the then 24 hour to go, vote and let me know what you think!
Great work! I like the continuity that the back of the shirt gives the design.
Really cool idea! Good song too, woot woot!
Kind cool! 5$
looks nice! although i think i'd prefer the hand/gizmo on the front w/the rest :-)
it looks cool :) i missed it
