Personally, although some of the designs seem good, it doesn’t feel very “Design By Humans”. Since it’s obviously that the artists can’t just photoshop the image they created onto a t-shirt in anyway they want. What I mean by this, is if you look at the daily contest entries and the daily contest winners, you tend to have large overall prints that aren’t directly centred in the middle of the shirt like all of the ones in the artists stores seem to be.
All of the t-shirts I’m looking at don’t seem to have that unique touch that I specifically shop at DBH for. It feels like these artists could have just uploaded their designs to like, zazzle.com or some other “Make your own t-shirt” site.
I don’t feel like I’m describing how I feel about this correctly, but this is my attempt at it. I think it would be a good idea if they artists had free range design like they do in the Daily Contest, then would submit the images to DBH, DBH prints a copy of the shirt the way the artist wants it to look, and the post up pictures of it. Not a stock image of a model with the design just placed on top.
Basically, it feels like the daily contest is still going to have the best and most astounding shirts produced.
