This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes
The Subscription Box: Design By Humans Collector’s Box
The Cost: $35.98 (shipping included)
The Products: Every box contains two screen printed, limited edition tees designed by industry leading artists, valued over $60.
Each month is themed. This box has a Surreal theme. The card has a bit more detail on each print, as well.
They include a sticker of each shirt design as well. These are high-quality vinyl stickers.
Neonbeast Shirt – Value $24?
This is a dangerous subscription for me! When I’m writing these reviews and looking at the designs of the artist, in this case, Neonbeast, I want ALL THE THINGS!
Conceptual artist and photographer Neonbeast takes creative ideas and further maniputes them. The outcome is a poem of shapes and lines that crosses the boundary separating dream from reality.
That’s a fantastic description of what I’m seeing – I am loving this design.
Againstbound Shirt – Value $24
The second, and last, shirt if from Againstbound. I love the style of this artist – they work with a lot of the same circular template (I am totally crushing on this Mt. Fuji shirt).
Few artists have a style as unique to them as Hector Mansilla aka Againstbound. When his recontructed objects and environments are paired with his masterful color combinations, once familiar objects transcend to something more.
I think I could spend a lot of money just browsing his storefront!
Me being distracted by everything in the Design By Humans store right now.
Verdict: This is becoming one of my favorite subscriptions – all the shirts are unique and only available through the subscription, and I’ve loved all 4 designs I’ve received up to this point. I’m probably going to splurge and buy that Mt. Fuji shirt, too, which brings me to the second advantage – each box comes with a unique coupon code for 15% off you entire order. Time to stock up. It’s a higher price subscription for two shirts (and two stickers), but there is value in supporting the unique artist and the cost in printing the limited quantity – so I’ve never minded paying a bit of a premium for a unique shirt on sites like this.
