Pampling’s Allergic to Your Bullshit

Allergic to Your Bullshit by EduEly is a very relatable slogan, and encapsulates the annoyance of allergies well. Just a constant stream of runny noses, congestion, and general aches, all because of a largely invisible source. It’s bullshit. And it mirrors some of the same qualities as dealing with an irritating person- it’s repetitive, gives you a headache, and it feels like it will never end. You can see the cat’s misery in this design and feel terrible for the poor critter, while also appreciating that for a lot of others, the cat is the cause of the allergies. It’s the human condition- one man’s quirk is another man’s pet peeve, and we’re all bound to annoy each other with our bullshit eventually. So the slogan and choice of a cat as the protagonist is perfect, although I can’t help but notice that a highlight line at the edge of the dark sections of the cat’s ears would make them read more clearly, making the piece even better.

Pampling has two options for winners of their contest. XPress winners earn 1 euro per shirt sold, with a minimum of 100 euros guaranteed. If the design sells well, designers may have the option of earning 500 euros to give Pampling the exclusive printing rights for one year. The second option is Classic winners, who earn 680 euros cash and 120 euros in t-shirts (or 720 euros cash) for the first 400 units and exclusive rights for 3 years. If the design is reprinted, the artist earns 850 euros cash and 150 euros in Pampling products (or 900 euros cash).
