I LOVE Coffee
i love the shits!
really really clever. 6$. look twice people!
nice, took me ages to figure it out
wow - it blew my mind to pieces
Hahahaha. I got it straight away. $5!
that's pretty awesome. needed to do a double take!
i still love the shits!
took two looks ... nice and subtely done
awesome. very well done.
i dunno how many will get it at first sight, but this is sweet.
my first thought was, i love leaking?? and then i was .. oh wow! very clever!
oh yeah, it took me a double take but this is brilliant. too bad most people probably won't spend long enough looking at it for it to recieve the final score it deserves..
i bet nobody actually gets it, and is just trying to fit in tsk tsk
This is SO GOOD!! It took me forvever to see it, but now I LOVE IT!!! $5
holy crap im retarded
who's gonna tell
Nice try retard. Looks a little bit like I heart rabbit shit.
omgosh that is adorable
haha, very neat!
Clever! It works if you know the title, would be pretty hard to figure it out otherwise.
damn if it weren't for tesco i wouldn't have given this a second look 5
Oh, I see it! Damn clever.
Almost too clever for its own good, but still fantastic! Maybe if there were some subtle highlights on the heart that made it easier to re-focus on the upside-down coffee cup?
lol i thought the little white thing was the coffeee cup itself... but now i see it
Falconstrike- It's a picture of an upsdie-down coffee cup. Also, IT'S A SAILBOAT!!! Just relax your eyes.
Either just make it the heart/coffee cup, or put the word "coffee" like it's written on the coffee cup in the diagonal upsdie-down manner the cup is positioned in, which will draw people to what it really is.
excuse me, but i don't love pouring my coffee out.
ok I'll stop now
Great work, really clever.
It took a second look for me. very nice! $5
So clever. It's one of those things that, once you see it, you never look at it the same way again, and you wonder how you couldn't see it before.
Oh that is BRILLIANT!
I want this t-shirt A LOT. And I know a tonne of people I could buy this for.
Very very clever, and a really nice design, too.
very clever $5
what a logo
Man, just a few tweaks and this would make an awesome logo!
I actually prefer tea but love how you executed this. The cup works perfectly, you better patent that.
i pour coffee?
yeah me too. into my mouth hole.
frickinawesome thanks for the explanation. I doubt I ever would have gotten it on my own. I'm way too literal for my own good, lol
Now that I see what it is (ha), 4
This went way over my head until I saw that blog.
I feel really stupid for not seeing the mug at first. I would totally wear this & I hope it gets printed as is.
dunno if people she feel stupid
the brain makes the quick connection
but we control our brains
yeah this is a clever concept
Can those who figured it out explain it to me?
bballstar23 - just LOOK at it. Hint: It's both a heart AND something else. The drip, and the white bit, are the giveaway.
If you still can't see it, I suggest you seek professional help. Like a coffee shop.
Wow I finally figured it out. Clever. Thanks 13strong.
this took me a while too...its very good though.
noice! i had to read read read the comments to figure it out, but once I did, I went "HA!"
That mug would be like pouring coffee into a Weebil-Wobble...I smell a lawsuit.
hmm, mezo has a point. Maybe if you did flatten the bottom of the cup just a bit, it would make people wonder, "why is that flattened a bit?", and then the cup might appear more readily.
nooooooo dont listen to the nay sayers! (mezo pls stop nay-saying kthnx)
I di'int tesco! Just stating a fact! I scored this a 3! Sure, it is clever- but it's tiresome seeing Milton's work getting redone over and over! Not matter how clever it can be.
dhskfjskhdf don't make me agree with you by using reason
Oh. In that case.
Clever!!! amazing logo $5
lol @ Mezo's Weebil
hahaha that took me forever, I get it now. Very cute :) $5
It's not at all too subtle. Only a monkey would have problems understanding this.
Also, if the bottom of the mug was flat, then the image wouldn't work, would it? If a lack of realism in stylised, double-meaning images is a problem for you, then you're in trouble.
damn now i feel stupid for not getting it myself (i happened to see a comment with the word "cup" in it), but yeah, this is great! 5
i just hope you'd give some more colour options.
Awesome!!! Almost too clever.
ok...I think this is about as good as it gets.
The absolutely only, ONLY thing I don't like is the color.
Here's just a suggestion, and take it what you will:
I'd love to see it on a brown shirt with the parts that look like a dark brown now (possibly black; the drop and the I) could be white then, and the drop could have a white outline and a white highlight maybe then.
I'd like it better for 2 reasons:
It would pop off a brown shirt better, and the part that forms the inside of the handle in the mug would be cut out then and you could understand it is a mug easier.
But an absolute $5 to this. It's ICONIC, seriously. This is amazing. If this doesn't print, you could sell this to a major MAJOR coffee company I bet.
I don't drink coffee ever, so maybe this is wrong, but- are coffee cups really that tall? Wouldn't this still work if the coffee cup's shape was more squarish and natural? To me, it would work better.
Feck of, numb nuts.
t shirts are cool - the very fact that you use "gay" as a critical term means that your opinion is useless. Go away.
It's an icon with a double meaning - if it doesn't conform to reality closely (actually, I always drink coffee out of a mug, not a cup, so it's fine, size and shape-wise) that's because the concept wouldn't work as well if it did. But it does work. So shut yer mouf.
Yeah... I'm slow-- But at least I got it eventually!
t shirts are cool: I still don't think you get it, if you say there should be a handle on the cup. What you think is that the semicircle IS THE CUP. It isn't.
LOOK AT IT THIS WAY.
The semicircle is the gap between the handle and the cup itself.
Seriously - all the people having a hard time understanding this doesn't mean the design is obscure or complex. It means they're all idiots. It's really frightening the number of people who can't see this.
5$ 5$ 5$
If there were'nt people having a hard time seeing this, the design wouldnt be half as good.
And if you cant see it, youre not an idiot, you just need to go away for a while and then look at it with 'fresh eyes'. I often find it hard to
change the way I look at something.
I think this design could make you more money if you sold it to someone else. I can imagine still seeing this design on tshirts and stickers in 50yrs time.
I love tilted red mugs?
Sorry, that was stupid of me. You're not an idiot if you can't see it straight away, but you are an idiot if you're not willing to take the time and think about it. That's part of the fun. And really, guys, it's not that difficult.
It's a clever concept but for me it doesn't make a good t-shirt design.
It would make an excellent logo though.
Amen to that.
wow, took me awhile, but now that i understand, thats really tight.
omg Rambunkcious ur 2 funny. "i love brown drop"
this is a good logo for a girl's clothing brand
Yeah, I think the mug should be made a little more obvious...otherwise it's not so bad
It's not impossible at all. And it's more for the wearer to know what it means than for other people to have to figure out.
so the peeps who didn't get it scored it low
i got it and gave it a 4
congrats on the print!
what.where did ya spy it?
what stu said, it looks more like a logo than something to wear.
very clever design! congrats on the print!
Love the simplicity - an instant design classic!
...all haters should just admit that this is sheer genius.
i didnt get it at first, but now that i do i love it..... genious
oh man I actually get it, so clever and awesome, wow your getting comments still, after like a year.
