This is a t-shirt design I submitted for a local contest celebrating San Jose’s special art culture and scene with a day of screen printing. The contest prompted participants to submit expressions of what San Jose meant to them, and for me personally, the city has always meant quite a few things. It was hard to encapsulate everything in one representation, so I made an icon system for the memorable aspects to work in combination with the type. Hopefully if you’re familiar with SJ too, you’ll recognize the symbols.
