A new generation of designers has just been ushered in, thanks to Tokyo-based Graniph, whose Design Award.2 competition ran earlier this year.
Thirty winners were chosen from tens of thousands of t-shirt designs submitted, with subject matter ranging from books and bikes to bears with gas masks and tubes of toothpaste.
The Gold award (a.k.a. the grand prize winner) went to Cho Jo Tzu of Taiwan, whose design is pictured above.
