    Hey guys!

    I am working on a t shirt design based on the "Run the Jewels" hand logo and Killer Mike's endorsements of Bernie Sanders (and Sander's support of RTJ). I wanted to get opinions on which graphic you thought was best, and any other criticisms on the designs, as they are still WIP. The working name for the piece is "Run the Country":




    For the second design, some things I am going to have changed is how they looked like conjoined twins (lol) and how the flag looks in Mike's hand. But any other criticisms/thoughts are appreciated!

    The second logo is better, but I'd be more likely to wear the first, if that makes sense

    Yeah I get you, that's why I personally like that one better. It's less "on the nose" so to speak.

    lol for people that arent familiar w rtj these probably come off kind of offensive

    but yeah the designs are dope man...bernie looks a little off though tbh. his lips look too pink? idk hahah this isnt my area of expertise. but killer mike looks amazing

    i like the subtlety of the first design more tho i think

    Maybe put Bernies name somewhere on the the first one? Just so people know who it is

    Yeah I was thinking maybe a pin or cufflink, but Bernie doesn't have an official symbol so Im having trouble. I'm a fan of conveying things symbolically rather than using words.

    Yeah true a symbol would look clean, maybe you could put Bernie 2016 on the back or in small print below the design on the front

    I have an updated design. There was too much shading going on for my local screen printer to print it so we brought it down to 6 colors. I actually like the flatter look, it looks more in line with the RTJ logo.
    I played with a cufflink logo, but it just wasn't flowing well so I scrapped it. I might just put Bernie somewhere in white print. But I think I am going to move forward with this design. What do you guys think?

    Thanks for all the feedback guys. I was pretty stoked with the final design, and even killer Mike liked it on my instagram which threw me for a spin! I'm planning on figuring out how to gift him one as a thank you.

    Pre orders are live on my website below. As a show of gratitude I created a discount code. You can use promo code "RunIt" for 5 bucks off your purchase from now until Mid may when the shirts ship out.
