Glenn Jones is the man behind the fabulous, funny and extremely creative website known as Glennz Tees. A graphic designer and illustrator from Auckland, New Zealand, Glenn started out designing for t-shirt website Threadless.com. After a few years of success there, he decided it was time to focus on designing tees and teamed up with some friends to start Glennz Tees.
The site has some brilliantly creative ideas, available on t-shirts, calendars, mousemats and as laptop skins. There’s also a section where visitors can vote for which design Glenn should create next.
I love the site – check it out: Glennz Tees
