DESCRIPTION

Our Biker Tank, made exclusively for Society6, is an edgier take on the traditional Muscle Tank. It's crafted using extremely soft 100% combed jersey cotton with deep arm openings and raw cut edges. The Biker Tank is a boyfriend fit, intended to hang loose - women may wish to select one size smaller for a more fitted wear.

ABOUT THE ART

Why? I'm a geologist turned designer, so it only made sense to combine both worlds. This print is fourth in a series of four, each of which explores the effects of erosion and weathering on the printed word.

The text itself is taken from a 1971 essay on experimental typography by the German designer and typographer Wolfgang Weingart, and is set in the Univers typeface. Univers was designed from 1954-57 by Adrian Frutiger, and is completely bad-ass.

Unfortunately I can't zoom in enough to see the details; perhaps you could create a post with some cropped enlargements? Either way from what I can see, they look great! :)
