Creative Tantrums Adorn T-shirts


Long-time advertising production professional "Vontra" tells us, "After 20 plus years of listening to creative whining while on film shoots, (including my own) I thought of a way to turn comments into cash: Print all the stupid shit we creatives say onto clothing and throw it back at ourselves." Thus, a Cafepress business was born called Shoots. The store sells clothing emblazoned with "all the stupid shit" creatives have said to Vontra over the years and, no doubt, still do to those of us still in the business. From "Where's all the African Americans at?" to "My room sucks. Who's responsible?" to "This looks like shit. Is that the style now?", there's plenty of bitchiness for all to appreciate.

OK. Now who's going to open the store where creatives quote "all the stupid shit" production people, AE's, traffic managers and clients say in reaction to their work? Come on. Someone step up to the plate!

It would be very interesting to see if the t-shirts would sell. There are several I likely would consider just because they hit home. Right now I think I own one t-shirt that doesn't advertise some race track or race team or product that pays my fee.

I went to the website and the way it's set up is horrendous. You can't read the shirt, so you click on it. You still can't read the shirt, so you click again. You still can't read the shirt, so you have to enlarge it. Now, finally, you can read the shirt.

"Vontra" - maybe you could have the site redesigned. It's not worth the trouble as is.

And... will allow you to customize anything they have!

I will be quitting my job Monday and wait for the royalty checks to come flowing in.
