Our focus is on the interaction between art and the community. It’s on buying awesome tees, evoking an air of exclusivity and allowing artists to express their talents while keeping their rights to their art work
The Netherlands (PRWEB) September 20, 2010 —
A new online portal debuted that caters to emerging and established artists as well as discerning graphic design T-shirt fans whom want their personal input registered on select designs. Selling exclusive limited edition T-shirts from talented up-and-coming artists, LimitedTshirts.com is poised to change the way artists not only interact with their adoring public but also receive recognition for their talents. When the social media site launched last week, it unveiled an innovative way for artistic designers and T-shirt lovers to interact and mutually benefit each other. First and foremost, it provides a means for artists to get their creative endeavors in front of a worldwide audience. At the same time, it enables T-shirt lovers to vote on their favorite designs and then purchase a limited edition tee bearing that coveted piece of art. Artists who want a cost-free way to get mix and mingle, get their creations noticed, earn some additional income and create a name for themselves can upload their best T-shirt designs online at http://www.LimitedTshirts.com
According to an “Oakland Artists Survey Report” conducted by Behavior Research Associates, when asked to describe themselves, over half the artists studied classified themselves as emerging, regardless of the length of time they’d devoted to their craft. This tendency stemmed from “the difficulty many artists experienced in gaining visibility and recognition in a very crowded, competitive field.” Much of that difficulty stems from the fact that the conventional way of doing things no longer works in today’s Internet-driven society.
LimitedTshirts.com goes against that traditional grain with an interactive model that embraces the latest online craze: social media. But unlike much of the World Wide Web, it does so with complete respect for artistic copyright. In fact, the site’s business principle transparently contends that artists maintain all rights to the artwork they put up for voting and potential T-shirt printing. “Our focus is on the interaction between art and the community. It’s on buying awesome tees, evoking an air of exclusivity and allowing artists to express their talents while keeping ownership to their art work,” stresses the company’s spokesperson.
LimitedTshirts.com is providing artists with a way to make a genuine name for themselves that is fully respectful of their creative process and ownership rights. Open to all design creatives around the globe, the site allows artists to upload their best T-shirt designs to be voted on by members. This competition aspect not only affords artists and designers a fun way to interact with people who love artist tees but it also gets the general public more in touch with art. Each design will have a 30-day voting period time limit and a new winner is chosen every other week. The winning design is printed only 100 times, making it a true collector’s piece for the buyer.
Exactly how popular will LimitedTShirts.com become? If early sign-ups are any indication, the sky’s the limit. While still in Beta launch, the site had already lured a who’s who of artistic talent. Current designers on board include Jules David, Studio San Pedro, No-one, Jacob List, Gerrit Walter and Jackson Chang.
