Gowanus Dolphin T-Shirt/Logo Design
This project was conceived the afternoon of January 25, when a dolphin strayed into the toxic Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn. The original intent was to create a T-shirt design based on the dolphin. However, after his death, these plans were scrapped out of respect.
The majority of design elements are direct references to the neighborhood of Gowanus Brooklyn. Water towers are an iconic figure in the area, as well as the Culver Viaduct bridge. The adornments on the dolphin are tongue-in-cheek references to the ever-growing youthful population of Gowanus/Brooklyn.
