These images are apart of a graphic t-shirt series that i’ve been developing. The idea was actually sketched out a couple years back. The concept behind the series is the Prism Project. I wanted to explore the idea of creating a collection of t-shirts based on government surveillance. This concept isn’t new, it was burrowed by the idea of the “Big Brother”.

I used symbols that would have traditionally been used by the United States government. I wanted twist the meaning behind iconic representations of the United States (like the american bald eagle), to convey a message of surveillance through information. I found it important not to portray a flag instead referenced flags. By depicting representative imagery i’m able to connect the series through a singular concept.

I played around with the visual texture of feathers juxtaposed with solid shapes. These solid shapes increase the contrast in every graphic. All of the graphics are monochromatic (The graphics are available in different colors but it’s still a monochromatic). The simplification in color helped create powerful bold designs. And it is bold design that lends itself to the male demographic, which is ultimately my target market.
