Scribtee’s Morning is Coming

Morning is Coming by adhika rahmani is the latest print at Scribtee. Strong geometry sets the tone, simple but bold. The sun escapes from the dark triangle of night by unzipping it- unlike the far away stars, the sun isn’t constrained by its shape and can plot its own exit from it. I like the mischievous quality of the sun, he reads as a playful toddler just discovering that he has the power to control and shape his world. It’s a nice, solid design that tells a story.

Blame it on Television at Scribtee

Blame it on Television by Jose Anthony Aguero caught my eye with its bold message. A recent winner at Scribtee, it takes a usual t-shirt no-no and turns it into a strength, using a strictly square shape to remind the viewer of all the TV screens they encounter. Text is at the heart of the design (clean and effective), surrounded by a collection of black and white advertising that hammers home the loudness and ubiquity of commerce. Always nice to see message-based designs, especially when they look this cool.

Recent releases at Scribtee

There are so many contest sites these days that sometimes it’s easy to overlook some of the smaller sites. And it’s too bad, because they’re often putting out some really nice work- albeit sometimes at odd intervals, making them difficult to follow.

This is certainly the case with Scribtee, which has been releasing some pretty amazing artwork since I last posted about them. Nature is My Mother by Lars Wunderlich immediately caught my eye, as it’s a great design that has made the rounds at other sites and somehow remained unprinted. But those other sites’ loss is Scribtee’s gain, because the design has a smooth flow, a cool organic feel, and looks pretty spectacular when worn. Another stand-out is Wake Up! by Attila Szamosi, a sweet mix of character design and text work. It’s really a masterful piece, the kind of design you’ll want to keep looking at because there’s just so much to appreciate. Multiple type styles, amazing coloring, and even a hint of an environment peeking out from the background. This is impressive stuff, all the more so because it feels so fun and effortless.

Winners at Scribtee earn $500.
