Aye bruh, so you wanna start a T-shirt line? And you got a whole slew of logo ripoffs that are gonna change the game? Excuse me while I reach over and press the "chill the fuck out" button right quick, Duncan.

Whether you're just starting out or you have been doing the tee hustle for eons, I would recommend paying real close attention to the following graphical science missiles I'm about to fire on your whole sus  headquarters cause there are rules to this game. If you stray away from the safety of the path before you, you're gonna end up on "Shurt Feelings" fucking around trying to be a logo flipping cowboy. Your pen tool only goes "pew pew!" Remember that.

Your boy does not mess with logo flips as a rule. Why? Probably because I think they are wild pointless. In fact, they don't have a point. They are lazy. They are like mashup songs, combining two good things into one bad thing. At their best they are pure novelty. They are the foam fingers of graphic design. Sure, in a vacuum of a specific scenario they can be entertaining, but once removed, they reveal their lowest possible hanging fruit. They lack concept. And most importantly, they recklessly promote the idea that a designer has to thieve to achieve. Unless you wanna be a shark biting logo flipper for your never heard of brand's brief little existence, I would recommend studying this list like shit was the SATs.
