We are a couple days past the official start of the season of summer, but the school summer break here begins in less than 24 hours, and with that, a there is a bit more time in the day for free-form Creativity.
To help get back into the groove of The Daily Create, I undertook this little T-shirt project this evening. Although I would have preferred to go with “Keep Calm and Get Your Create On,” the aesthetics weren’t as clean as the simpler and original “and,” so I’ve gone with that. The font is Keep Calm – Medium.
Wanting to give folks a bit more of an invitation on the back of the shirt, I sought out some appropriate icons from The Noun Project to illustrate the different types of creates, and point folks at the URL. And of course, the shirt would not be complete without the #ds106 and #4life tags.
The Icons are attributed here CC BY 3.0 (or Public Domain, in one case), although in support of the licensing and the difficulty in placing the attributions on the shirt, I have also paid the nominal licensing fees to the artists.
The icons, left to right, are attributed as follows:

Get your create on! The summer is here, and with it comes the perfect opportunity to explore your creative side each and every day! Check out The Daily Create.
If you are interested in a T-shirt, check out the links in the sidebar to the ds106zone store on Zazzle. As I’ve indicated before, the one-off production prices can be a bit high, so I always wait for the special 50% off on T-shirt days and then place my order then. If you create an account on Zazzle, you will receive notifications of the special sale days. Two for the price of one is a much better deal!
Now, go Get Your Create on!
