Earlier this year DesignByHumans held a Dark Knight Rises themed t-shirt design contest. The contest attracted over 3,300 entries from 84 Countries, with 51,800 Votes and 15,970 comments on the designs! It was quite obviously an extremely popular contest and some real gems of designs were produced. In fact, browsing through the submissions, there were so many great designs I don’t envy the people who had to decide on the 10 finalists. The top 3 winners were actually chosen by The Dark Knight Rises Director/Writer/Producer Christopher Nolan and Producer Emma Thomas, very awesome, and lends some legitimacy to the final selection.
Today we’re featuring the top 5 designs, each of which is currently available as a limited edition t-shirt.
The Bane Shirt, by Mr. Nicolo is known for his intense shirts like Sasquatch and Dino Frenzy. He captures Bane building intensity in his hands, with a brilliant use of blues, accented by orange eyes and energy. The sure grip of Bane comes alive in this T Shirt.
Once the signal is called the Dark Knight will Come From the Dark. Batman drops to the ground with a storm, accented with the cape flowing from above. This symmetrical balance frames the leading lines so you stare right into Batman’s dominance.
The final fight between Batman and Bane under the depths of the bat signal put this design at the top of Christopher Nolan’s list. Hello, Mr. Wayne features many fantastic design elements. This tee captures contrast, shadows and highlights to create an intense fight scene. Action, leading lines, and brilliant contrast make a t shirt worth a thousand words.
All 5 Dark Knight Rises tees are for sale for a limited time, each is screen printed with a specialized allover press on a premium blend cotton shirt for maximum comfort and quality. Each is available for just $22 and come in men’s sizes S – 2XL and women’s sizes S – XL. Big time fans can collect the entire series at a discount (you’ll only pay for 4!).
