T-Post is a subscription service for avant-garde t-shirt designs. Every six weeks, you receive a new t-shirt in the mail emblazoned with a graphic inspired by a curious news item. The inspirational news article is printed on the inside of the shirt. In celebration of T-Post's 25th issue, they asked our friends at the Imaginary Foundation to design the anniversary t-shirt. This is the result. From the Imaginary Foundation director's statement printed inside the shirt:
The message of media today is its own ubiquity--it's everywhere, all the time. We no longer just make or consume media. Rather, we are media. Once upon a time, a t-shirt was just a lightweight, knitted, pullover shirt. Now it's an instrument of meaning, a mode of conversation, quite literally a piece of media that we slip into every morning like a hot bath. The Imaginary Foundation salutes the 25th anniversary of T-post's experimental exploration of this timeless and pervasive form of immersive media. More now than ever before, Marshall McLuhan's insight rings true: The medium is the message. And the small, large, and x-large too.

There’s no research to back this up…but it’s entirely possible the ukulele is the least intimidating instrument in the world. Oh, make no mistake — that’s not because the ukulele is just that simple to master. It’s a stringed instrument, so it takes some serious work to get good at it. But admit it…the island […]
You probably have a lot of items in your home that you’d hate to lose to theft or damage. While certainly no one ever hopes to fall victim to a natural disaster or home invasion, you need to be prepared just in case it does happen. When it comes to choosing a reliable renters insurance, […]
The average US household replaces their mattress about every seven years. So if it’s been more than that, or even a lot more than that, it might be time to invest in a new slumber HQ. And most sleep experts will tell you the right mattress really should be looked at as an investment. Because […]
