Joe Van Wetering show flyer

"Between the Mountains and the Volcano explores the continuously developing relationship between color and space. I use bold, contrasting colors that work in tandem with geometric shapes to create abstract visions of everyday life." - JVW

Joe's work will be shown through May 1, so please stop in! And we hope to see you at the April 3 opening party as well!

A New Design Challenge! Loves Green!!!

by Threadless / None /

In anticipation of Earth Day 2009 (and with a special nod to today's holiday), we’d love for you to let us know what being “green” means to you… in the form of an awesome tee design, of course! Is it a cleaner environment? Sustainable resources? Renewable energy? Global responsibility? All of the above? Or maybe you have some other ideas… We’d love to see em! Your challenge is to create a design based on the concept of thinking GREEN!


Your eco-centric design could score you mad green of your own… along with some awesome goods, courtesy of Timbuk2, Origins, and Wacom! Also, since we had a great time involving YOU in the last challenge, we’re doing it again! Please send an email to and donate some fun stuff to the chosen designer! And lastly - the chosen design will be printed on American Apparel organic tees!*

Think, design, be, and (possibly) earn GREEN! You have until April 6 to submit a design! What a wonderful world!
