A Shirt by Restless Janosch for Strellson Design Garage.
The Strellson flagship store in Düsseldorf invites you to design your own t-shirt. The ambitious and creative store team has built the Design Garage, a studio-in-store concept containing two creative desks and plenty of colours of textile paint, stencils, two sewing machines, yarns and more applications. Calling for your creativity, some friends and I could not resist. We spent a good and very entertaining hour in the store. My design (pictured above) is based on the typical motives of switzerland: the cross, mountain and deer. The holy image of the mountaineer as spirit of it’s natural habitat reflects my understanding of the perfect arrangement of life and environment. The shield frame and banner marked with the swiss cross emphasize traditional values and sustainable quality.
My hopes are high to being one of the three who may be awarded a trip to Zurich and Strellson headquarter in Kreuzlingen. The design competition is open until this Saturday, February 18th. If you dare to challenge my design: hurry up. You don’t need a concept like mine, just be a bit creative and let your inspiration turn into a visual result, with or without the use of stencils and many colours or advanced sewing skills (which I don’t have either).
