Bricky, my shirt advocating a life without Flash on iPad and iPhone (or perhaps open video itself – or happy plugins? I guess everyone can make up their own meaning) is now ready to be delivered to your doorstep.

Bricky is a very limited run. There will be no re-prints, so get it now. Printed once more at very high quality by the fine lads of BuyOlympia on genuine American Apparel shirts.

Originally I’d printed a small series of my WWDC shirt while I was in San Francisco, but after almost a hundred comments on my blog, and almost a thousand combined emails, twitter replies, messages, and flickr comments, I had figured out that it might be a good idea to make my shirt available for sale.


Well, it’s taken me a while, but here it is in full American Apparel glory: the Exploded Settings tee. It ships in 2-3 days, and it’s handled, printed, and warmly packed and sent off by the awesome guys at BuyOlympia. They also do the shirts of well-known friends in the industry, such as Rands, the Iconfactory, and of course Panic.

If you want to be really awesome, get one. But, you can be even more awesome, and take a picture of you (or your girlfriend/boyfriend. Or you AND your girlfriend/boyfriend!) wearing it, and I’ll hook you up with an unreleased icon and wallpaper. Ohh, exciting! Of course you also get a free, non-returnable and virtual pat on the back.

People who won a shirt during the giveaway will be sent one as well. If you got a reduced price offer because you participated in the giveaway, just send me your paypal receipt and I’ll send you 4 dollars per shirt you’ve bought. Zing!

Why are you still here?

I got a lot of responses on my WWDC shirt post earlier, and since I got the first batch printed, I have some that I’d like to give away! By the way, people now in San Francisco for WWDC are eligible, but you have better luck buying one off me when you run into me this week.


In my last giveaway, I asked you to comment, blog, or tweet about my look at Billings. This time, I’d like to ask you to take a picture of my work in action; it can be an icon of interface I designed, a logotype, print work, or just your workspace using my icons or wallpapers (of which there are much more coming up soon!). Upload it to flickr (or another photo-sharing website) with the tag “cocoiagiveaway” and a link back to this post.

Leave a comment with the link, and be sure to fill the ’email’ field in the comment form with your actual email so I can contact you for address information when you win!

The deadline for entries is Sunday, June 14th. Winners will be announced next week.

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.
