Geek design has become a huge part of our daily lives. The lifestyle of the geek has become as cool as any of the well known jock/trendy groups and every year it gains a bigger more solid following.
Indeed the geek shall inherit the Earth!
Perhaps the key reason for this is the awesomeness that is the internet. Geek design has been scattered all through the web at mind-bending speeds by the legions of geeks who hold it dear.
We also have the meteoric rise of the ‘video game’ to thank for this kind of design becoming a respectable sector of popular culture.
Just take a look at our most recent winner Eggzoo! He has taken the uber popular Mario Brothers video game and transformed it’s characters into a super unique design that transcends merely being appealing to what was once a niche market and opens it up to the mainstream. Once upon a time some sweaty jock would probably have laughed at a ‘geek’ wearing a t-shirt design like this and then dunked his head in the toilet. However, these days it would probably be the jock who is wearing this kind of t-shirt design! Times have changed…thank goodness!
Television series like Big Bang Theory have also dragged the name of ‘geek’ out of the mud, brushed it off and placed it at the top of the cool throne. This series in-particular has also spurred a massive commercial opportunity for geek design. Millions of fans around the world are obsessed with the super cool geek t-shirts that the main characters wear and in its wake a plethora of ‘geek couture’ online stores have sprouted up….they rock!!!
Geek design is no longer a derogatory term, but instead a term of endearment among an ever growing legion of faithful followers.
Here is a groovy burst of geek design power to liven up your day.
Do yourself a favour, GO GEEK, or become a dying breed like the ‘so not cool jocks’.
