My friend and fellow Pittsburgh blogger Mike Woycheck has launched WearPittsburgh, an online store that sells t-shirts with a Pittsburgh theme. These aren’t the typical black-and-gold fare — they focus on local knowledge and humor. The tagline, for example, is “Locally Designed. Locally Inclined.”
We were excited to help with this project. We designed a template to use on both the online store (run by Spreadshirt, which handles the web operations, printing, and fulfillment) and the WordPress blog that acts as WearPittsburgh’s official site. The excellent graphic designer (and sometime Big Big Design collaborator) Katy Delancey also worked on this project, including some of the shirt designs.
I ordered a pierogie shirt, and I’m happy to report that it arrived speedily and looks terrific. A great stocking stuffer, especially for ex-Pittsburghers who miss their home burgh.
In its first week of operation, WearPittsburgh has already been featured in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
