What a smart design for a family vacation/reunion t-shirt! Using the longitude and latitude coordinates of the respective cities where each member lives, designer Arlene Ibanez created this t-shirt design. Being that all of the family members were meeting up in Maine, she also cleverly incorporated what Maine is known for, nature, in the form of birds and a tree.
“I asked a talent friend, Arlene Ibanez (who is a creative genius in art and design), if I could commission her for an upcoming family reunion,” said Grace Linker. “I gave her only a couple of nouns to describe our meeting location (Maine) – e.g., lobster, tree, birds, etc. – and from those simple instructions, she gave me a cool, sleek, modern, hip design which I made into t-shirts but will also use for recyclable totes and shopping bags.
“So clever how Arlene used coordinates from where everyone is coming from.”
Arlene and her sister Ardith have designed some super sweet t-shirts that celebrate Filipino pride. Check them out at Barkada(ko). (Love this Nanay Knows Best one.)
