Designer T-Shirts For Good



When designer Jeff Sheldon started Ugmonk, a small T-shirt line, in 2008, he had no idea that in just two years it would become his full-time gig. Now Sheldon is using his business to give back to the world. Buy any T-shirt or other product from Ugmonk between now and the end of the year and the company will donate a meal to an orphan in need through Rice Bowls. And these aren’t just any old T-shirts. I’m salivating over these typographic designs: “It’s the little things,” “Don’t just stand there” and that super sexy ampersand sweatshirt.

The Design Activist’s Handbook by Noah Scalin and Michelle Taute
This manual for design activism is for every designer who’s ever sat at a computer, thinking: Is this it? Isn’t there more? We set out to help graphic designers figure out how to start making a difference and making a living—no matter where they live and work right now. It’s time to translate all this talking and thinking into meaningful, widespread action.

    Jeff Sheldon and I worked together several years ago as the two in-house graphic designers for a software company. He was just getting started designing t-shirts on the side then, so it’s been an amazing privilege to follow his growth as an entrepreneurial designer and to watch the resulting rise of Ugmonk as a model of a socially conscious business. Congratulations, Jeff and Ugmonk!
