Iconic 1960s mod brand Brutus Trimfit has commissioned emerging illustrators to produce one-off shirts showing off their unique styles.

Thirty artists have taken inspiration from the brand’s heritage, drawing directly onto the fabric. The final pieces range from the simple, yet intricate line drawings of Arran Gregory, the playful characters of Hattie Stewart, and pieces inspired by British heroes and heroines by Joseph Long.

CR in Print
The January issue of Creative Review is all about the Money – well, almost. What do you earn? Is everyone else getting more? Do you charge enough for your work? How much would it cost to set up on your own? Is there a better way of getting paid? These and many more questions are addressed in January’s CR.

But if money’s not your thing, there’s plenty more in the issue: interviews with photographer Alexander James, designer Mirko Borsche and Professor Neville Brody. Plus, Rick Poynor on Anarchy magazine, the influence of the atomic age on comic books, Paul Belford’s art direction column, Daniel Benneworth-Gray’s This Designer’s Life column and Gordon Comstock on the collected memos, letters and assorted writings of legendary adman David Ogilvy.

Please note, CR now has a limited presence on the newsstand at WH Smith high street stores (although it can still be found in WH Smith travel branches at train stations and airports).
