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?
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.
