Purchases Inspired by Design

I sometimes buy items simply because I like the graphic design. I’ve been known to wear T-shirts from teams or places I have no relationship to. Here are some examples:

Surfer T-shirt

Love the colors and graphics

I wear these team colors a lot but have never been on the team!

I bought this for my husband. He loves it though we only bought one album and have never seen the band in concert.

It tends to cause the occasional awkward question, like “Did you play Lacrosse at Middlebury, Vermont High School?” (No, not even in New York State where I grew up…) “No, I just liked the design so I bought it as a souvenir on a trip up there.” That causes a confused look and the person usually moves on. But I love design and show my appreciation of it this way, even if it might be hard to explain to passers-by!
