It is typical for such a day to yield all sorts of attention from T-shirt designers. Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for 4th of May, is a holiday that has become quite the American symbol for partying and celebrating – hence cool t-shirts galore! I’ll quickly point out a couple shirts, on different ends of the creativity spectrum, which caught my eye.

First is a Cinco de Mayo shirt from BustedTees, seen below on the left. This t-shirt encompasses what I like to call a simplistic creative style, that has been seen across many popular T-shirts designs in the last year or two. It also adds a comic twist to the term Cinco de Mayo, showing 5 “mayo” jars. Gotta love it.

Second, seen in the middle, is another comic shirt geared towards the Cinco de Mayo celebration. This one shows the more American approach to the holiday, haha. The shirt is self explanatory and quite funny. This one is from zazzle.

Last, in the group of simplistic creativity, is a shirt that sort of surprised me. It is a Nike – Jordan shirt, that seemingly could not stay away from the Cinco de Mayo festivities and colorized the sacred Jordan logo with the Mexican flag colors.

On the other end of the creativity spectrum is this much more detailed shirt by sonmi, titled BurgBot, which I found on Design By Humans. This shirt is definitely design genius, incorporating a “burger” into an aztek design look, squirting out what could be ketchup and mustard. The color combinations alone are perfect and the second I saw this shirt, I imagined someone with a Mexican hat on yelling the typical “ahhh-haaa-hayyyyy” Mexican mariachis chant! haha!

This post is perfect to point out how diverse T-shirt design creativity can be, and still yield a wonderful shirt. I’m sure not everyone will pick the same favorite from the featured shirts, but the majority will agree that these shirts are great for the occasion! Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Birthday Presidente!

I was looking through Emptees.com and found this t-shirt design, which immediately caught my attention. I normally don’t like shirts that have way too much going on, but this one brings the right colors together to make an extremely fun shirt to rock. If worn with the right kicks, this shirt could make for a really awesome outfit! The best part of it is that it was designed by a freelance web/graphics designer that loves t-shirts just as much as we do!

Click HERE to vote for this design, at ShirtFight.com,and show him some support; and click HERE to see the design up close and personal (scroll down after click).
