Today we’re featuring two killer designs from Philadelphia based Made With Awesome
Made With Awesome was founded in 2009 by two dudes with an appreciation of wearable art on torso fabric, Evan Ferstenfeld and Roni Lagin. Their plan? To create original, witty designs that also make you think, and print said designs on the highest-quality materials known to man! While that may sound like a somewhat familiar goal, Made With Awesome may be one of the few that are actually nailing it.
How can just two guys produce so many magnificent designs? That’s where they get clever. Everything at Made With Awesome is done in a collaborative fashion. By working with a number of talented artists from all over the world, Made With Awesome are able to produce a variety of unique designs. While the illustration style may be quite different from design to design, you really can feel the Made With Awesome spirit in each concept.
Let’s have a look at a couple of the designs. First, Easy Speedin’ (as pictured in the feature image above). Let me confess, I’m in love with this design. For one, it’s an awesome mashup of two of my favorite films, Star Wars and Easy Rider. Secondly, the illustration style and limited use of color really speaks to me. It’s the kind of tee that will have strangers complementing and asking where they can get one.
Next, I couldn’t go past Fossils Refueled:
This is one of the more though provoking tees from Made With Awesome. A man is pictured in a car, stuck in a traffic jam, the exhaust fumes from behind the car twist up the t-shirt creating a pre-historic scene.
Read into it what you will, is it a caution about the overuse of fossil fuels? A warning from the past that species come and go? A commentary on the daily grind of modern life, or all the above? Whatever the case it makes for a great tee!
A couple more of our faves are The Robots Come Out At Knight, Photo Op and Lunch Break, make sure you checkout the entire range for yourself.

I have to say I’m thoroughly impressed by Made With Awesome, the guys have produced a killer product from top to bottom. Not only do the t-shirt designs look great, they’re often funny and/or thought-provoking, and they’ve also managed to reflect those same qualities throughout their website – a combination most struggle with.
