Nice idea, I might work on the letter spacing a bit though. It is a little strange, especially between the S and the first E

i'd wear this!


I love the colors.
I wish the font was a bit more appealing.

nice one dude. i agree that the font could be a little spicier, but im diggin it!

yeah, i played around with different fonts but I figured since it represented "nothing" I wanted to keep it pretty plain. Besides Century Gothic is in my top 10 :)

I should have known there were going to be "lose the text" comments, even in a text based competition. I absolutely love this, especially on the print! I'd hang it up with pride, yes I would.


There was a comment about kerning "letter spacing" and i'd have to agree, it needs some work in some areas.

i'm trying to see the spacing errors but i really can't. maybe i don't have quite an eye for text that i thought i had, but i also think it might just be a trick of the eye -
there are those white stars between the S and E that maybe make it seem like there are spacing issues.
i like it.


in defense of the 'lose the text' comments -- when you're voting page after page, it's easy to miss when designs are part of a 'threadless loves _' contest. well to me at least; i barely ever notice those. :\


its so simple but works really nice. there is something really appealing about it


I think it's beautiful, even with the - god forbid!! - text.


I'm suprised no one has mentioned yet that this could easily be made in photoshop in a couple of minutes. . .

I like how the design goes up onto the neck of the tee. It's a cool concept, but a font that better disappeared into the sapce beyond it might have sold this concept more. Still a fun sub.


Pretty! :) I'd like it better with some better lettering though. That font is just too plain!


Pretty space image, but the type could be more nicely involved in the image, rather than just slapped on top. There's barely any typographical work involved here, aside from you choosing a typeface, which I think is the point of the competition, right?


i agree with silent-t.

while i really think the idea of the words is nicely contrasted with the flashy background, font and placement needs to be rethought!

love it


i think this would lokk better as a print

Not sure about the text and it's placement, but the stars, background, and colors are very nice.


I like the idea, and the background, but I think something is just... off about the text. I don't think it's subtle enough. You seem to be getting a lot of comments like this. Maybe do a re-sub before the contest is over?


I absolutely adore this shirt and hope it gets printed. I'm going to school for astronomy, and think it's super ironic.

$5, for sure


i like it without the text, atleast take it out from the middle of everything, make it small off to the side n subtle, and maybe get a better phrase.


i like the colors too...but agree i think the text needs to be more interesting
