It’s no secret that we’re huge fans off all things map related, and that’s especially true when it comes to wall decor and t-shirt design. Alex Szabo-Haslam, a designer from Sheffield, England, recently launched a campaign for “Citee,” an exclusive collection that includes exactly these items. In phase one of this project, Alex printed highly detailed maps of 80 cities onto t-shirts, and now he’s using Kickstarter to fund round two where he’ll expand his line to include another 150 locations.
Alex uses open street map data to create his highly detailed designs, and each graphic is printed onto an American Apparel t-shirt using dye-sublimation. With this special printing process, Alex is able to print flush on the total surface of the tee, including the seams and sleeves. And unlike a lot of screen-printed clothing, Alex’s t-shirts won’t crack or peel over time.
To get your own tee or framable print, check out Alex’s Kickstarter campaign. So far he’s raised over $9,800, surpassing his $1,216 goal, and he’s still got another two weeks to go!
