Design By Humans’s Drinkware collection

I love it when an established t-shirt store like Design By Humans branches into a new form of merchandise, and their new drinkware collection establishes the most thorough roundup of drinking vessels I’ve seen at any apparel merchant. Stainless steel bottles, clear cups, and even decorated shot glasses provide something for every type of beverage (especially since mugs were already available). Here’s a look at three designs in the collection that I think make best use of these new formats…

The Wisdom by Hydro74 (for the DBH Originals collection) uses a trio of owls to fill the clear 24oz cup with ornate detail at every angle.

Catana by vincenttrinidad packs appropriate fierceness for delivering a stiff drink in a shot glass.

CTHUL-AID by BeastPop is sure to make people wonder what exactly you’re drinking from that stainless steel bottle.

Like what you see? Remember to upload your own art to start selling on these products. And of course, check out the full drinkware collection at Design By Humans.
