Adrian Knopik, co-owner of a creative agency in Poland, Fuse Collective, designed a series of T-shirt designs for polish clothing company Surge Polonia. He was inspired by national polish symbol and glorious moments in polish history.
“The Eagle”, “Poland”, “Polish coat of arms”, and “Eagle for Fan” series are inspired by Orzel Bialy or The White Eagle, the national coat of arms of the Republic of Poland. Legend has says that The White Eagle emblem originated when Poland’s legendary founder, Lech, saw a white eagle’s nest.
Jeff Lobdell of Firefly explained to me the philosopy of four symbols — human head & brain, computer, pine tree, and a light bulb — that represent something. The head means humanity, while the computer represents technology (or anything man-made). On the other hand, the tree represents the environment and the light bulb represents thoughts, ideas, creativity or anything intangible.
“The importance of these four is to make it a point that we need to focus on these areas and keep improving,” he said.

Very very fresh from the oven, XCVB was just started in March this year — it’s run by the boys from Sheffield in the UK. Despited being pretty new to the scene but they are trying to make a name for themselves with original interesting design that consist of design, symbols, typography and (definitely) a sacred meaning behing all of those combination.
Their promise is to constantly evolve to keep XCVB designs fresh. So far they have mainly t-shirts available but are looking to expand into jackets hats shirts and anything else they can get sorted.
Welcome to the field, boys, please impress us!
