Tessier-Ashpool: A walk on the geek side

This is real geek stuff. T-shirts based on the fictitious company Tessier-Ashpool S.A. from the book Neuromancer by William Gibson.

Unlike other designs on Memetic Tees, the idea here wasn’t to create a striking logo but a serious corporate image that would serve as a base for the shirts of the company and its various departments (IT, AI R&D…). Are you a geek?  Do you work in an IT Dept.?  What if you had been working for Tessier-Ashpool?

Tessier Ashpool IT Department

It all started with the suggestions of “The Doctor” who among other things suggested a design with Hideo as a protagonist.

In the novel, Hideo is a cybernetically-modified, genetically-engineered clone bodyguard/assassin in service of the Tessier-Ashpools. Highly trained in ninja martial arts, he is loyal and dangerous.

This shirt is saying “Don’t mess with me or the last thing you’ll see will be my blade  sticking through your throat”

For the “IT Department” T-shirt, you can select your color. Here are some suggestions.

Come on, get one and show your friends you worked for the family that owns Freeside and the mainframe to which the AI Wintermute is attached.

    If you did do a variation of the IT Department one that said Artificial Intelligence Research & Development I might NEED it.

      Of course. As you can see in the post, A.I. R&D, was already planned. I only have to see in wich way it looks better (AI R&D, AI Research & Development, Artificial Intelligence R&D…)

    This is awesome. Just like the Hosaka ones. (I got a great compliment on it just today.) By any chance are you going to do deigns from Count Zero?

      Well, I have many other things on my mind now but, if there’s something specific you’d like, I’d like to hear 🙂

  • The biggest suggestion I can make is to make these in a polo; particularly the IT ones as at least the last two IT departments I have worked for required a collared shirt (polo’s are acceptable). Thinking Q412 (american apparel) or 4640 (anvil, long sleeve). Ideally you could do an embroidered design like the First Party polo from Penny Arcade : http://store.penny-arcade.com/collections/first-party

      I cannot make embroidered designs with the current provider but I’ll check the polo’s options.
