27 May the Cocoia WWDC shirt

It’s often said that there is great value in having a distinct shirt at WWDC, and while I’m not very preoccupied with that notion myself, I do have great fun in designing shirts. I first wanted to print a larger version of my twitter user picture, but I was curious if I could design something that was a bit more relevant to my work.


And I settled on this design. Hey, doesn’t everyone love exploded items on shirts these days? A nice large version of the shirt design is up on my flickr.

I’m printing 6 of these shirts today, and one of them will be sent off to a happy owner in a new giveaway post that’s coming up soon. Let me know if you’d like one of these shirts; with enough demand, I might print a few more.

    I am trying desperately to reach Jon Lech Johansen. I need his help on a project. My name is Chad Smith and my cell phone is [REDACTED]. Can someone please have Jon contact me as soon as possible.

    Note by Sebastiaan: Chad, posting your cell phone no. on my blog might not be the best thing to do.

  7. Awesome shirt!

  8. 8

    Love it! I’d buy one.

  9. Very clever, I love it.

  10. 10

    Looks very slick – was it your intent to leave any sort of logo or brand marking off it though? After all, you can advertise your brand even further with the shirts.
