Presenting the George Lois poster project

TYPOGRAPHYSHOP is honored to present the 10+ Commandments of George Lois poster project. 10 of today's most prominent designers will be creating a poster as an homage to George Lois, illustrating one of his celebrated quotations.

The roster thus far includes Gail Anderson, Seymour Chwast, Rodrigo Corral, Stephen Doyle, Louise Fili,  Debbie Millman, Emily Oberman, Jennifer Sterling, James Victore and Massimo Vignelli. Each will be illustrating a Lois quote of their choosing.


Thank you, thank you, thank you. I ordered a tee shirt for my daughter, a graphic designer and type aficianado. She got it today, on her birthday, on her way to dinner with friends, after which they'll be watching Helvetica.


The shirt has everything that a lover of type typically goes for, fine sleek lines, and a sense of humor.


I can't wait to show off my new t-shirt to my teachers!


I couldn't resist the shirt. My license plate is HELVTCA. I figured I might as well just embrace my obsession.

What kind of shirts do you print on?

MANY of our men's designs were initially printed on American Apparel and we still have a number in stock. Their shirts are manufactured in the U.S. in a sweatshop free environment. It has been difficult of late to obtain their product so we've been printing on Next Level shirts.

For women's tanks we have some stock printed on American Apparel but have recently been using a similar shirt by Next Level.

What is your return policy?

WE DO NOT accept returns or exchanges due to sizing issues. If you need to return an unopened shirt for another reason, please contact us for instructions.

Can I find your stuff in stores?

YES! You can now find a selection of TypographyShop gear in New York at the celebrated Rizolli Bookstore, 31 West 57th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. If you're a retailer interested in carrying our line, please contact us.

I've got a great idea for a shirt. Do you accept submissions?

MANY CUSTOMERS and fans have written asking if we were interested in tee ideas submitted by other designers or if we are going to be running any contests to select new tees. The answer is yes to both questions. We want to offer a wide selection of themes and styles designed by a variety of designers other than ourselves. We are in the process of drafting a policy for submissions, but are not accepting any at this time.
