This week’s t-shirt collection is giving us ALL the feels! We’ve loved these collaborations with our influencer community, and we hope you have too. It’s given us a chance to hear and share personal design stories, and we hope you’ve been as inspired as we have.
This latest collection is particularly personal and meaningful. Erica Dietz, of the blog 5 Little Monsters, created a collection of shirts with various phrases in American Sign Language. When asked about her connection to ASL, she shared that three of her children are deaf.
When she and her husband first found out that their two oldest were deaf, they immediately learned a few signs to communicate. They watched as their son’s whole world opened up because he was able to communicate with them. They use sign language every day, and Erica was inspired to create this collection of shirts since it has such a special place in her heart-especially the ‘I love you’ shirt.
Design-wise, we loved the splashes of playful color Erica used in each of these shirts, while keeping a lot of the cohesion of the signs images by using the same color. Plus, ‘cute’ on that baby onesie?! We can’t resist!
