Friends of Globe has gone from a casual description of a handful of people, to a statement of membership of a massive amount of support that has come together overnight. What better way to show support than to wear it on your chest.

For our upcoming town hall meeting at MICA the Friends decided that we should print t-shirts identifying ourselves as the Friends of Globe when we are gathered together in the room. (Those MICAns planning to attend this afternoon’s meeting—Main 110, 2:30)

Tuesday evening, Carolyn, Greg and I got together to put ink on fabric. We created a small army of golden yellow shirts with Friends of Globe in big black letters. “Friends of” is set in Colin Ford’s Globe Gothic typeface, which was inspired, of course, by the collection. He designed this face last year as part of his senior thesis while finishing his undergrad at MICA. He is currently pursuing his masters at Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten Den Haag (KABK) in Type and Media.

We printed 25 t-shirts for tomorrow’s town hall meeting—most of which were reserved before printing. We didn’t realize t-shirts would be in as high demand as posters, but don’t worry for all of you who didn’t pre-order we got your back. You can still get in on this great $10 deal! Email us, MICAfriendsofglobe[at]gmail[dot]com by 2:30pm on Wednesday the 16th to request a shirt. We will print more in the coming week and get them to you asap. T-shirt requests after 2:30 will be $15. Apologies, but since this is happening on a whim, cash only until the Etsy site goes up in the coming week, stay tuned! All proceeds from the shirts are going directly to Globe.
