DBH's 'Dark Knight Rises' T-Shirt Design Contest Winners Revealed
"Hello Mr. Wayne." Yesterday we featured a few brand new shirts by Kinetix for The Dark Knight Rises, today we have the actual winners from the Design By Humans design contest. Back in late March, print shop Design By Humans announced a contest for the best Dark Knight Rises t-shirt design, not only giving budding artists a chance to have their art printed as a t-shirt, but cash prizes totaling upwards of $13,000. The top 5 winning designs have been hand picked by Christopher Nolan and producer Emma Thomas and announced, and they're available for purchase online right now. Check out the winning artwork below!
In order from #1 down. For the full TDKR contest winners, visit DesignByHumans.com. Click on any to buy.
All five of these are currently on sale for $22 on the DesignByHumans.com website. Or you can buy a pack of all five for $88 total, good discount. My favorite one is probably the winning one (or others that didn't get chosen) but that BANE face with the crazy colors is extremely badass as well. I'm not really the biggest fan of the blue ARISE one, #3, as it looks a bit too ethereal and over-designed, that's just not my thing. Then again, don't forget that Christopher Nolan did choose these winners, including the #1 Grand Prize design, so if they fit the theme and context of his epic cinematic conclusion, then I trust his choices. Plus, it's always awesome to see fresh artwork for one of my most anticipated movies coming this summer.

Number 1 and 2 have anatomy problems. The last one is great.

I would have chosen the 3rd one personally... Doesn't the 2nd one look as though Batman's head has just been randomly 'attatched'?

I'd go for the 3rd one, the others are not so much like tshirt designs. The 1st one is pretty hard to make out.

Can't say I like the first one. Batman looks like a bit of a bloater in it.

Pffffft. Ed Hardy would've aced this much better than these folks.
